The Tijuana Pit Bull

This cheerful fellow’s owner obligingly held him still so I could attempt to capture his face but he turned at just the right time to avoid the “paparazzi.”  I finally gave up and settled for a profile shot.

Tijuana is rife with stray dogs, and every domicile also seemed to own a dog.  A local informed me this is to keep petty thieves from raiding what little property is contained in these ramshackle huts built of thin wooden sheets.

Fortunately for my bleeding heart most of the dogs (even the strays) I saw this day were relatively lively and did not appear to be starving.  This is the exception in a city where animal population control is nearly nonexistent.

The senior pit bull below came to his gate wagging for a pat on the head and retired sadly to his house when none was given.  It was hard not patting all these friendly dogs but rampant parasite contamination coupled with a lack of clean water to wash your hands, makes reservation a wise choice.

    Thanks, I think so too, that’s why I tried to get his face full-on. He was also so so sweet and friendly to dogs as well as people. And fortunately he had owners who seemed to care about him. Don’t you love his domey head??? 🙂
