Always park in shade and crack your windows and don’t stay inside for too long. Be good to your animals!
Got this email yesterday and it made me so happy! Not only am I related to A.B. but we believe in the same thing! Chaining dogs should be banned, I’m going to do all I can to make sure that this is done in my hometown! ❤

Trixie is about a year old. She showed up at a shelter near Kansas City, NE with demodectic mange so bad that her eyes were swollen shut! Hands, Hearts and Paws in Omaha, NE took her in to help her get all better. She had surgery on both eyes for entropian and now her eyes are perfect!
GOOD ON A LEASH!
and on HEARTWORM & FLEA PREVENTATIVE!
Trixie LOVES balls, chewing on Nylabones, and knows how to ‘sit’ and ‘shake’! She is aaaaall Bull Terrier: silly, sweet, energetic & cuddly. :)
Unfortunately, Trixie wants to be Queen! and does not do well with other dogs, or cats. She can be adopted out-of-state, but it is adopter’s responsibility to pick her up and a home visit is required beforehand.
If you have any other questions, ask on her Facebook page!

My silly Blue
Please reblog these two abandoned babies so we can get them the medical care they need! Thanks :)
Starsky and Hutch were found in the dark, in a box on the side of a road in Las Vegas. Now in care of Las Vegas Boxer Club & Rescue, they are safe but need medical care to get them back in good health. They will need shots, neuters, vitamins and a high protein diet to survive, as they are extremely underweight and dehydrated.
The rescue relies on pet lovers like yourselves to be able to keep saving these babies!

PIT BULL AMBASSADOR “TUTORS” KIDS - “[T]he Meyers take Kyra on visits to schools, hospitals, nursing homes and libraries, where they give programs on bullying and stereotypes, kindness and compassion, and how to safely greet a dog.”
A three-year-old Pit Bull in Iowa named Kyra has been helping kids by listening to them read at school. In addition, Kyra serves as an “ambassador” for Pit Bulls by making appearances at schools, retirement homes, hospitals and other places. She is certified for good behavior and makes appearances as part of the “Ambass-A-Bulls” program of the American Rescue League of Iowa’s Pit Crew Club. Here’s more from app.com:
When Kyra is at Stowe or any other school, she is always leashed by her owners. In addition, parents must sign permission slips to allow Kyra near their children.
Ashley Meyer describes Kyra as anything but vicious. Kyra has never been aggressive around children or adults, Ashley Meyer said. Proponents of pit bulls say they are not predisposed to behavior problems.
“She’s very submissive and she loves kids,” Ashley said. “She lights up whenever kids are around.”
Stephanie Filer, manager of special gifts and partnerships with the Animal Rescue League of Iowa and a pit bull owner, said the 27 people and 12 dog members of the Ambass-A-Bulls have visited seven Des Moines elementary schools and schools in Newton, Orient-Macksburg and Dallas Center-Grimes in the past year since the Pit Crew was formed.
“We began the group in Des Moines because Des Moines has chosen to discriminate against dogs that look a certain way,” she said. “Our position is that every dog is an individual and should be treated as such.”
Kyra is a great example of how valuable dogs are to the community. Click here of the full story and here to learn more about the ARL Pit Crew.
Side-eyeing one part of this but loving most of it. All dogs are predisposed to behavior “problems” - most dogs chew, some dogs bark when they “shouldn’t”, some dogs don’t like strangers, and some dogs don’t like other dogs - but these only become “problems” when they are not properly handled by a dog’s human through training and/or management. Denying that makes potential owners less prepared for dealing with issues when they arise, puts people at risk when certain behaviors are poorly managed, and increases the likelihood that “problem” dogs will be dumped in shelters because their humans unreasonably expected perfection from an animal that is necessarily (and wonderfully, I think) imperfect by human standards. The last objection I have to this mindset is probably the biggest one: it makes those of us who have or work with “problem” pit bull-type dogs feel excluded, like the community would distance themselves from us if BSL came knocking where we live, makes them feel like their dog is somehow less worthy or wonderful because it is a “problem dog,” makes it harder for us to reach out and say “I’ve encountered something I don’t know how to handle, please help me,” and ultimately makes everyone less safe. Dogs that exhibit undesired behaviors are just as wonderful as dogs that don’t - they just need a little more help than the rest.
I love seeing pittys in a positive light…. hate the term “submissive” though. :/

Racism Is For The Pits
"These are terriers, not terrorists."
Only thing we fight is discrimination!
We are here to destroy the stereotypes about these dogs! To help people view them as individuals. We are here to fight for a breed that used to fight for us. You are the world to your dogs, so I hope the human race doesn't completely forget that.
I also give training advice. If you are located near me or have a quistion don't hesitate to contact me;
