I Am Not A Monster by SofiaERamirez I Am Not A Monster by SofiaERamirez
Dodge|Pit Bull (possibly mixed)|Male|5-6 Weeks

As some of you know, we take in rescues on a fairly regular basis.

Mister Dodge, here, was found abandoned in a Wal*Mart parking lot, stuffed in a 10 gallon bucket, in a shopping cart on the far edge of the lot this afternoon. When he was picked up, it was about 80 degrees and the little guy was pretty badly dehydrated.

My sister has taken him in with her other pittie, Chevy, and her golden retriever, Maddison.

Poor thing! He's adorable! How could some monster just leave such a defenseless and adorable animal to die? People these days. I'm so glad he was found and you took him in! He's going to be one handsome dog! His nose <3 I can't get over the cuteness xD

He's such a sweet looking baby. It's such a sad story about how he was found but I am very glad he got rescued.

you and me both. I've worked with a looooooot of dogs, between working in a clinic, showing all breed, obedience and service dog training AND grooming. I've NEVER met a mean pit bull. I've been bitten my dalmatians, golden retrievers, labs, poodles (oh the poodles -_-),chihuahuas, chinese cresteds, pugs, german shepherds... you name it. Never once have I been bitten by a pit bull.

People need to do their research. If they did, they'd know that pit bulls only contribute to a small FRACTION of dog attacks.

you're right. poodles are inbred nightmares. cocker spaniels can go sideways on you too.

Aww of course you are NOT! :aww:
Those owners who try to gear pit bulls into biting machines, and those timid people who don't care a wit about the truth about this breed, are the true monsters.

Hear, Hear!
Unfortunately, this is not the first animal we've taken in that was dumped in the walmart parking lot :/ Someone dumped a box of kittens once.. nobody knew until someone hit one :(

People make me sick. I don't know how people can put themselves in a mind-frame that animals' lives are expendable.

How terrible.... that poor kitten... poor kittens. People are evil. Seriously. It pains my heart to see or hear such stories. I'd never abandon an animal like that. D<
I agree! You took the words right out of my mouth.

Daaaaaaaamn! That's a lotta dogs! But I don't blame yall for taking them all in.... if we had the room and the money, I'd be adopting dogs left and right. But we have a handful with the four we have.

We do all breed rescue :)We take in dogs that need emergency placement, feed them, love them, train them up a bit, and when I believe they're ready, we rehome them.

The dogs we've kept permanently are special needs or high risk dogs that will likely be put to sleep. Maverick, as cute as he is, is unadoptable because of how many problems he has. We have a psychotic chihuahua who simply hides under the couch all day, A rottweiler with personal space issues, and a really touchy yellow lab:/

I would love to take in animals that need help like that. But I'm sure it's really expensive taking care of special needs dogs. ;.; One day, I'll have money, and I'll help dogs like that. ^_^

SofiaERamirez Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
Yeah, it gets expensive at times, but the clinic cuts us a lot of slack, gives us free dewormer, flea meds and vaccines and things to help new rescues...so that helps a bit.

It takes a lot of patience, too.

And I'm glad you want to help :) We need more people like you :)

It's a baby monster. ♥

I would so love to have one, it's been my favourite breed for a very, very long time. Too bad in Finland there are not really american pitbull terriers much. Almost all of Finnish "pitbulls" are just mixbred amstaffs. I want a real thing. Since I really, really love the breed!

Most of what [uneducated] people here(aka: the majority of the public) call 'pit bulls' are mixes of amstaff, bull dog, and any other bully terrier you can think of.. even BOXERS get called "pit bulls."

Someone tried to lecture me once, that there was no such individual breed as the 'American Pit Bull Terrier," that it was just a 'blanket term' to cover any bully breed. Ugh.. peoples' ignorance really pisses me off.

yeah, i've been told that too. (I mean that "Someone tried to lecture me once, that there was no such individual breed as the 'American Pit Bull Terrier," that it was just a 'blanket term' to cover any bully breed" part) It's so stupid.

The "best" Finnish APBT i've ever seen was a labrador mix... :'D They bought it as an american pitbull terrier. Lol.

Awww poor baby=[ People need to be shot. He looks so much like my Lita when she was a baby too. I wish I could take this lil boy.

SofiaERamirez Featured By Owner May 18, 2012
I couldn't agree more :/ People -do- need to be shot.

Dodge has good placement, though. He was received very well by both Maddison and Chevy, and not only will he be properly trained, he'll be well socialized and I have no doubt he'll become a very well adjusted dog :] After all, that's what we do :]

Good to know=] He's a cutie. I still have a problem with my Cali and her social behavior. Over the year I've had her though she has gotten LOADS better around people and other dogs. Just gotta keep on working with her.

Not only that but they need to educate themselves and learn that Pit Bull isn't a breed. There are American Pitbulls, but that's it. I did a whole report on it and BSL in general. Everyone calls my dogs pitbulls but that's not what they are... people are idiots.
