Thank You for sharing this. I don't have cable so I didn't know Anderson Cooper reported on this. What a great job his team did.
It is to be noted that it also stated in the book that one of the 2 mentioned shelters up north DID NOT adopt out any pit bulls. I think it was north shore, but I'd have to look in the book to be sure. The shelter has 100+ kennels & they can't use even one for a pit bull looking dog? By doing this they are continuing the hate, fear & myth of the breeds.
Did you see the opening of the People's Choice Awards? If you didn't you should watch it. I would say it would go under positive Pit Bull press for the week.

Thank You so much for this update! I was soooo sad last night. I'm glad the shelter seems to be fighting for the dogs.

This just makes me bawl!!! What can I do,but not move into a town/city!! You never know when they might decide your dog looks wrong!
Over a year ago I was taking agility classes with my dog. One day after class the instructor was talking to me & my husband & petting my dog. She suddenly said Lennon reminds me of the dog my sister had. I of course asked what happened to her sisters dog. She proceeded to tell me her sister was sent to Iraq & her mother took on the dog. The dog was put into a house with what this trainer called "house border collies". 5 of them. Needless to say her sister's pit-mix that had never lived with other dogs was not given a room of her own but was thrown in with these 5 "house" border collies. They euthanized her sisters dog after it got into 2 fights with her mother's dogs. I know this really has nothing to do with military bases, but I was really hurt by this story. I do not take classes at that facility anymore. It is very hard to find good non-biased trainers. This story would have upset me no matter what the breed. I just can't imagine euthanizing a military person's dog while they are in Iraq.
I get all of my best advice for living from celebs, pageant contestants & of course the Onion;)

The Brayton Cason story sound really weird. I'm confused as to why they think it was a dog. It says his bruised body was found in the front yard. It doesn't mention bite wounds at all. It has other errors also. He could have been hit by a car with the story they give. The story is also of in the Debra Renee Wilson-Roberts story. I watched the video & the dog that is still alive looks very placid. Makes you wonder what the owner were doing to the dogs. And the last story every dog that kills must be a pit bull.

Started reading it a couple of days ago & so far it is just as good as his last book. Wallace is a truly incredible dog & Roo & Clara are saints!

The Rebecca Carey story rubs me wrong on so many levels. Her friend said she looked like she hit her head & fell down & why would her parents ok the immediate destruction of the dogs she loved so much without all the fact. Sounds like she was very devoted to her dogs.

This is a very tragic story, however who leaves a 16 month old outside alone?(with or without the dog) I know the child was attacked by the dog, I'm wondering if she possibly could have also been shot by the neighbor.
I agree with you & your quote. I have worked with a rescue in the past that went so far as to state what kind of foods you could feed & what types of collars/harnesses you could or could not use. It's a great rescue, but they are going to far & will alienate good potential homes.
