Tinkerbell attracted the wrong kind of interest from people as it was obvious she had been used for fighting previously and because Pit bulls are on the ‘band breeds’ list here in the UAE (I will talk about this fantastic list later!) they aren’t easy to get hold of.
We had a Yellow Lab name Sammy and he really needed a friend.
So a few days later we went to visit Tinkerbell at the shelter, I felt an instant bond!
Tinkerbell settled in so well with me and my husband, she started off going for walks wearing a muzzle as we had no idea what she was going to be like around other dogs and we had to work on a level of trust with her. Pit bulls have been breed so that they have this amazingly strong jaw muscles exhibiting a bite, hold and shake method that can be impossible to get them to let go. Tinkerbell demonstrated that she had an extremely high pray drive, with the slightest of squeak or animal sound she wanted to bite, run or chase it down.
Gradually after months of training her, learning about her, developing trust with her and learning to read her, the muzzle came off. We came to learn that Tinkerbell LOVES BOYS! Boys with their manhood still intact even better ;) She has a bunch of friends now that she plays with and goes for walks with but one eye will always be watching her.
Just to clarify Tinkerbell adores people, she has never shown any signs of aggression towards people she just wants to be loved! Unbelievable considering what some humans have done to her.
The “Pit Bull” isn’t even an actual breed at all, but a slang term that current american culture uses to describe any dog that has a big head, cropped ears, brindle coat or eye patch usually a large or stocky dog. The true breeds most commonly labeled as Pit Bulls are: American Pitbull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Unfortunately the Pit Bull has become popular with the gang-subculture who have exploited this breed by forcing them into dog fighting rings, and breeding and training them to be aggressive. Today, many people automatically associate the Pit Bull with crime, gangs, and poverty when, in fact, most Pit Bulls are owned by your average upstanding citizens. With the explosion of Pit Bull breeders, thousands of Pit Bulls are ending up in shelters across the country, topping the list of the most euthanized pet. The fact is, millions of Pit Bulls are living peacefully in homes throughout the country. Not fighting and attack people. With any animal you should be educated on how they will act so you can train you animal according.
