The Purchased Pit Bull

This little one’s owner said:

“i purchased her and you could just tell they were trying to make money i got her at 5 weeks old in the add they were asking 100 and when we got there they told me they would let her go for 80 they were just in rush to get rid of the puppies she was the last girl it was just her and three of her brothers they asked for my email so i could send them pictures of her but i havent heard from them in these hard times i going to stand by her shes my world i cant even think what it would be like if she wasnt around its nice to have someone so happy to see you when you come home after a long day i know ive only had her for 10weeks but its been the best 10 weeks”    

In general, putting a price on a living creature for your own profit carries an inherent conflict of interest.  Your needs come first and you will do what you need to do in order to make cash.  Sometimes, that means selling a puppy like the one above to someone who might use it as bait for a fight ring, or put the dog into the pit.

Fortunately, BL here was purchased by a woman who has the puppy’s best interests in mind.  Hopefully BL’s owner now knows that there are many beautiful pit bull puppies languishing in shelters who also need loving homes.

Addendum:  Note the adorable floppy ears on this baby.  Cutting a dog’s ears is no different from cutting a human being’s ears.  It is painful and it serves no beneficial purpose (except in a fight ring, where the other dog cannot grab the ears).  It also tends to give these sweet dogs a “mean” look, further damaging their already mangled public reputation.
