Many Bronx Pitbulls Still At Brooklyn Shelter

Bust in the Bronx
Yesterday I met some of the pitbulls that were seized from that dogfighting ring in the Bronx – 3 of them actually. They weren’t at all what expected. They seemed like really sweet dogs, kind of timid. They all had really sad eyes, which was upsetting. I guess I expected the dogs to be aggressive and barking through their cages, but a shelter worker told me that all of those dogs are actually “dog aggressive” not people aggressive because of how they’ve been trained by those monsters in the Bronx. So, they don’t flip out unless another dog is around. Many of these dogs had roommates across the room from them and were pretty chilled. I let them smell my hand through the cage door but I admit I was too afraid to take any of them for a walk. One shelter worker said that none of the dogs were euthanized which was really good to hear. Hopefully rescue organizations will scoop up the remaining dogs from this shelter. A dog trainer with Cesar Milan-like magic could definitely rehabilitate them.
