Great Dog, a true Blessing!!

Nice story but why has the poor dog got a heavy duty chain round his neck. what’s wrong with a decent collar

april
Guest

they break them and the necks are to strong for a regular collar, he was not bothered by it

JESS
Guest

Neck might be ok many other choices its the dogs Esophagus it does the damage

Pippi Detman

Baloney. I’ve had Pits and they always wore nylon collars and not one was ever “broken.”

CMac

If your dog breaks a collar, it’s out of control. My pits didn’t even need a leash. For that matter, none of my dogs need them. Only for Petco and Vet visits.

Tammy
Guest

They are bothered by the heavy chains. Their necks are not strong . They are more agitated by the neck weight. Don’t be delusional or excuse horrible abuse. I am a RN turned vet assistant . I know.

Darlene

You don’t need a dang boat chain to restrain a dog. i own a German Shepherd well over the size of this Pitt, and I have friends with Pitts. None of us feel the need to restrain our dogs with heavy duty chains. You restrain them by proper training. If she loves that dog she’ll stop torturing him with all that excess weight around his neck. It’s considered Animal Abuse.

Mo Gilb

Ever try to control a large dog when they’re determined!!! The collar is made to prevent him from excessively pulling; he pulls too hard, it’s uncomfortable and he backs off – it’s not designed to hurt the animal in a negative way!

Sandy
Guest

That was the first thing I noticed. Why the heck does a member of a family have to have the heavy collar. They use those on fighting dogs. Shame on them.

Beverly
Guest

Yes, I noticed that, too. Maybe he wasn’t leash trained as a puppy, or maybe it’s because pits are so strong that a chain collar is necessary to control them in case they’re being taken for a walk and see another dog and they start to pull.

Alyse
Guest

I know why the chain and if you look carefully, I think the owner tried to fashion the neck chain without it being a choke chain. I own a boxer/pit mix that was previously involved in dog fighting. People use the chain collar for a really simple reason–the dogs’ necks are larger than their heads and a regular collar fitted to the neck slips off. The best alternative is a harness but they chafe if you keep them on 24/7. Hence, at my house we are collarless.

Mary
Guest

Totally agree Stan. It’s cruel.

Deborah
Guest

I have a pit who is a fantastic dog. I use a pinch collar on him when we walk because he has a thing for squirrerls and cats. He will not break my hold with this collar on. I do not use it for correction.

paul

a shoulder harness should be used collars need to be outlawed.

”GOOD DOG’

Peter Holland

Pit Bulls are ” love bugs ” ?! What planet are you on . I suppose you think that they are used in dog fighting because they kiss each other to death .

Bill
Guest

Peter, hi, I just want to say I’ve had my pit bull for 13.5 years. She is the biggest “love bug”, I would like to inform you that a pit bull is no more dangerous than a poodle! It is true that some are aggressive, because they were taught to be. It isn’t the dogs, it is the ignorant,irresponsible owners. Pit bulls are very obidient, they are very sensitive as well, they cannot stand to be in trouble,therefore, they don’t do things they’re not supposed to do! Thanks for reading! I hope this gives some true insight on pit bulls.

lori

I will agree with you the day Poodles start killing people and other animals.

Pamela

Bill I’m with you on this. I live in a very small neighborhood, and we have a lot of Pit Bulls. Gentle souls. People are so ignorant because they can’t see. Their fears get in the way.

So true there’s not a lot of bad dogs in reality but there’s a lot of bad owners.

Anne Copeland

Any dog is only as good as its owners train and take care of it. You can turn any dog into a dog that will attack at the best of its capabilities if it has to defend itself or someone or something it loves. It is very unfortunate that a breed gets such a reputation because it is so wrong. The stories you hear about pit bulls attacking people and children are cases I am sure where the poor animal has been treated very badly for most of its life. Generally you don’t see what is going on via the… Read more »

Bill, my fantastic pit does on occasion get a wild hair but he also knows he’s been naughty. When I walk in to where he’s been in to something he sits with a hung head looking at me to see what my reaction will be. The hung head says it all. He doesn’t like my disapproval but sometimes he just cannot help himself…haha.

I have a friend who owns two pit bulls and have been brought up with love and are in a very caring home. On a walk one day a women let her year old pit bull out the door and came to sniff the two pit bulls, they both turned on her and killed her. My friends dogs were on a leash, licensed, and had all their shots, the one year old was loose, no license and no shots. The women was fined and my friends were not held responsible for anything. My point being, pits are unpredictable, they live… Read more »

they are made mean by their asshole owners that make them fight. They are not aggressive by nature.

Peter – obviously, you don’t have a thing for animals. Pit bulls are the most loyal and devoted of all dog breeds. I’ve seen them beaten within an inch of their life and they will STILL protect their humans. ALL animals will fight back if you hit them enough. THAT is survival. Just as a human would. I LOVE the breed and I have been fortunate enough to NEVER have met a really EVIL dog. Broken and trained to fight, yes. NEVER evil. Just like humans who hate; that is a LEARNED behavior.

What planet are YOU on? A Pit Bull who is spayed/neutered, loved and cared for is a Poodle, is a Cocker Spaniel, is a Shih Tzu.

AnaSue
Guest

Peter, Please remember one thing, those dogs are trained to fight other dogs. If the dog attacks it’s owner, that dog would be put down immediately. If you’ve ever seen one of those horrific videos, note the people aren’t wearing heavy clothes, etc. Those dogs would have every reason to attack the monsters that beat and abuse them, yet they don’t. Use your brain to think on that.

Beverly

Yes, they ARE love bugs. My granddaughter has 2 pits and they are lovely dogs. When she got the first one, she was young, but not a little puppy. I went over to visit, and knocked on the door. The kids were sliding down the staircase and the dog was right by the door. This dog was new to the house, and had never seen me before. I opened the door and she looked right at me, her little eyes as wide as they could get. I said “hi” to her and she wagged her tail. I went over to… Read more »

You know nothing. They do not want to fight. They are forced. Think about it, if they were so vicious, do you not think they would attack and kill the one that is hurting them? Instead once gotten away from those vicious owners they are very loving dogs. Some ( from the Michael Vick case) are even therapy dogs.

Swooley
Guest

I have the same reaction with ignorant people. You have never been owned by one, have you?

Deborah
Guest

Peter, mine is a love bug as well. The dog is as good as he is trained and treated. I trust my Pit far more than I ever could my cocker spaniel.

Sue
Guest

Anyone who knows anything about pit bulls knows that their loyalty to humans is what makes them dangerous in the hands of these idiots who train them to fight. They only know what they are taught and they have an extremely strong desire to please their owner. Your ignorance on this topic is obvious.

Tammy
Guest

They are taught to fight….. To survive …. period!

Britni

I’m guessing this dog isn’t taken care of ! You can tell by that big chain! And how big he is:( sad! Hope tbis dog has a happy ending in the end!!!

april
Guest

you would be guessing wrong,as someone who has and still does have pit bulls. the dog is very well taken care of look at his coat, look at how solid he is, as for the chain, as strong as they are you need a chain/leash that is solid and not easily broken, the fact that he is not pulling on it indicates he is use to walking on a leash and has been trained to not pull, I have no worries that Blitz is a very happy puppy.

Sandy
Guest

If you look closer the leash isn’t attached to the heavy chain. He lives with that heavy chain around his neck.

Darlene
Guest
April…for a Pitt owner you are very ignorant as to what is required in caring for them. Just because a dog is well fed, appears to be healthy, does not mean it’s healthy. For starters Blitz is not wearing that chain for support of any kind, he’s wearing it as an ornament. He will eventually develop a variety of bone disorders as he gets older. See how long she keeps him around when it finally hits home and she’s watching him suffer in pain every day and putting out bucks for treatments until she finally has to pay to put… Read more »

The dog is fine. He’s in great shape, and quite content to stand with his owner as she’s talking to the reporter. Some people buy weird collars for big dogs (like those leather ones with the spikes sticking outward). Pitbulls are plenty strong enough, especially one that big, to wear a heavy chain collar. Note she doesn’t attach a leash to it. She uses a smaller chain collar, which also points to her dog being well-behaved and happy to mind her. I don’t particularly like such big, heavy collars either, but it’s not hurting the dog. I volunteer for our… Read more »

Scath, I can also testify to the overall temperament of these dogs. I inspect houses for insurance companies and have occasion to evaluate dogs temperaments as dog bites are the biggest liability pay out insurance companies make. Pit Bulls are for the most part sweethearts, and in my humble opinion the most aggressive breed is the mighty Chihuahua. The big concern though is if a mean Chihuahua bites you it will sting/hurt but if a large powerful pit bites you that can be tragic.

Beth
Guest

Cropped ears, a large chain neck weight and a choke chain leash. Slipped past the owner and out the door to threaten a person…whether they deserved it or not. Bad owner. Bad dog. If the man had stabbed or shot her dog he would have been within his rights. If you love your dog you keep it contained…and don’t ‘decorate’ it to look like a fighter.

Holland

Sometimes the dog already has clipped ears or a clipped tail when you get them The owner might not have done that.

Beth you can said what ever , the bottom line is the women is okey and the dog save her , about the leash you have learn about that before write some nonsense comments , as a owner of a Pit Bull i choose to have a leash and a protector around his body, when a take him to walk help him to walk with his head up , this dog has a very nice body and look very healthy to me . Bravo for him , sorry for you.

Robyn Busch
Guest
Beth, let me preface my comment, I have and probably always will be wary around pit bulls after seeing one attack and was not able to unlock his jaws even in death. That said, i watched the video above, which apparently you have NOT . that dog did not “slip past” the woman who owns him. He went out and did NOT bite the man, only intimidated him long enough for the woman to escape – probably with her life. the man scared by the pit bull BROKE IN to the woman’s home, pulled her out by her hair /… Read more »

I wouldn’t ASSume the owner doctored the dog to look like a fighter. Many rescued bullies were already altered prior to their current home. My girl was altered and she is missing a leg…so she looks intimidating to some. Her sunny disposition is catching. Don’t know the life she lead before us but she’s shown us nothing but love.

Darlene

Great words of wisdom Beth. Good dogs come from good training and discipline, and they protect “their” home and family. They do not dart out the door, pushing past their owner to take other matters on unless instructed to. I personally own a German Shepherd and he’s gigantic and the best dog ever inside, but outside I know his capabilities if he feels the need to protect “me” Not that he won’t look in the direction of something going on and show the notion to get involved, but a simple “Mind your business” keeps him at my side. Even a… Read more »

Beth the only thing the dog did wrong was to not chew this man a new behind, Pits can be aggressive and mean if trained that way but they are basic little love machines when raised right and where originally called Nanny Dogs because of the way the would protect children. The man lost his rights when he invaded the home of his estranged wife and drug her out of the home, the pit was doing what a good dog would do and protecting the helpless.

Dave

Why does the headline say the owner of the dog was being attacked? So annoying, it was clearly the neighbor’s dog.

Mo Gilb
Guest

Glad it turned out the way it did, but the “header” of this story says the dog’s owner was being beaten, when it later shows a video of a neighbor’s dog breaking up the fight.

GREAT story and Good reporting on a breed of dog that is very unfairly accused of wrong doing because of people…
The one thing I saw in this little video is the Heavy Chain Collar on the dog…Please get a good collar for him…

If don’t have actual footage of event, don’t advertise it as such. I don’t believe half of these stories. Anybody can make this stuff up. I thought someone caught it on camera.

” finally stomp the horrible reputation that still exists within this breed.” If only liking and sharing this video would stop pit bulls from killing people . you are a moron

Holland

Can’t remember when but this is an old story, months old or even a year old and the headline is misleading.

ShadowsGathered

Sooooooooooo, the dog didn’t see its OWNER being abused, but instead saw a neighbor being attacked. Why not just tell it like it is to begin with instead of using hooks to get us to tune in?

Beverly
Guest

Beautiful dog. We all can see that this dogs’ ears have been cut. If the dog came that way when the current owners got him, shame on them. If the current owner had his ears cut, then shame on them. No dog should have their ears cut; it’s not natural. Dogs’ ears should be left alone, as nature intended. Pits have such cute ears, too. It’s too bad this wonderful dog had his ears mutilated.

Mary

The woman needs to take that chain off the dog’s neck. It’s huge and probably weighs a ton. Not a good thing to have around a dog’s neck.

Murphy

OMG look at the ridiculous logging chain around the dogs neck and the iddy biddy chain lead. Why in the hell do people do that to their dogs, you know it is uncomfortable, it doesn’t make the dog look meaner just makes you look stupid

Mary Lou Evans
Guest

I’m sorry the owners look like they take good care of the dog but there is no reason for that dog to have the heavy duty chain around his neck, that is just stupid. I don’t care what the excuse is, because their is none. Get that chain off of his neck, he is too good of a dog to have to wear that. it looks stupid and is stupid, grow up people and treat your dogs better.

Love the story but it is misleading, it was NOT the owner of the dog being attacked as the title leads you to believe

Katy Busby
Guest

Pit Bulls do well when trained and as the only dog, usually. Any dog pack that roams a neighborhood is potentially dangerous and a Pit pack is extremely so. Nevertheless, Pits are definitely protective of their families. If you are a stranger and enter someone’s home, the owner should restrain the Pit until it has “checked you out” (sniffing and such). Keep your hands to yourself until the Pit seems open to petting. That pertains to all dogs. The one in this video certainly is the neighborhood hero!

Ardie Chester
Guest

This was not the owner of the dog who was being attacked. It was a neighbors dog. Glad; he scared the man who was attacking his estranged wife. Headlines are misleading though.

Barb
Guest

Great story, but … The title of this story is, “Pit Bull Sees Owner Being Abused By Her Husband And Does NOT Tolerate It,” but it WASN’T the owner that was being abused, it was a neighbor. No wonder some people have an issue with the media.

LINDA

Good for this dog..just goes to show u..pit bulls have a bad reputation..they are not violent ..its how they are treated…i just pray that if that idiot guy gets out ..that he wont do any harm to the dog..or the woman..that he will hopefully be put in prison..and stays away from the woman and her dog..abusers have been known to kill the spouse’s dog or cat..in these situations

Pippi Detman

Why the hell does that woman have a heavy chain on that dog’s neck?

Adriane

Good doggie. Thank you for taking good care of your neighbor. I think that you deserve a little softer collar than a chain. Lots of treats coming your way. You deserve for the police to give you a nice medal.

Pit Bulls are the best breed on earth. Loyal, gentle. I agree that they do form strong attachments to their humans and will protect them. They are very perceptive with regard to danger. Very keen on picking up your vibe about people, if you like the person, they will. If you don’t they will be on guard. My beautiful red nosed brindle, Gizmo passed at 14 and his presence is sorely missed everyday. He was one of a kind. I am afraid there won’t be another. I’ve had dogs my whole life. Loved them lots but never was I so… Read more »

Why so heavy chain collar? Try to wear one around your neck 24 hours a day for 365 days.

Judy
Guest

Great story
I totally disagree with the heavy duty chain on his neck. I know someone said it’s because they break regular collars, if you notice in the video, the lead is not attached to the chain link collar, it’s attached to a regular collar. I have seen many, many pit bulls and they usually wear a harness, I have never seen a pit bull with a heavy chain link collar like this. It’s a statement being made by having this heavy duty chain link on his neck. I am not saying they are bad people.

Darlene
Guest

You need to take that flippin’ heavy boat chain off that dogs neck. If you had any clue..’NO”..it does not make him look cool, “NO” it does not strengthen his muscles. What it does is bare a weight down on his neck and shoulder bones and will eventually cause major health issues as he gets older. Not to forget…it’s Animal Cruelty! Would you like to have that chain around your neck?
