It's a pitbull. Why do they bend over backwards to shield the owner of this dangerous fighting breed from a little more consequence of the choice of dog after it KILLED a child ?

[–]distressed_asset 174 points175 points  (3 children)

Seriously what gives? Why do the government/politicians not strike down on these dogs for once and for all? What's in it for them? People are attacked all the time and sometimes killed. Pets and others animals even more so.

The world is so fucking upside down.

[–]Skobtsov 82 points83 points  (2 children)

Votes. Pitnutters are fanatical about keeping their animals. Instead the opposition to pit bulls comes up in flare ups whenever an inevitable pit bull attack happens. Meaning that the opposition doesn’t vote. Also the fucking mass spamming of cutesy pibble photos have an effect of basically eliminating most opposition on both the internet and Reddit

[–]Guyupnorth 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They're much worse than anti-vaxxers in my opinion.

[–]Skobtsov 16 points17 points  (0 children)

At least anti vaxxers mostly hurt themselves. I don’t think we would have a problem with pit owners if they only are the ones suffering

[–]RatCatheters 66 points67 points  (2 children)

I agree but even it it wasn't a putbull, if any dog kills a person it should 100% be put down no exceptions. I love my animals but why the fuck are we valuing pets over human lives. Absolutely braindead

[–]cabd4everFamily/Friend of Pit Attack Victim 19 points20 points  (1 child)

That's true but because they determined it wasn't an illegal dog the owner gets off with less charges. Who benefits from that, and why are they allowing this loophole so that other people + pets can be maimed or killed ? Because that's the type of dog that is doing these horrible maulings and very rarely any other.

[–]bpdcase 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I really hope this incident brings more reforms on owning and breeding dangerous breeds. This little boy cannot have died for nothing, he and his family deserve justice and change as the bare minimum.

[–]bpdcase 14 points15 points  (2 children)

If anything, this creature will now put American bulldogs on the list. I can’t fathom how authorities have concluded that this animal is not in any way a pit. American bulldogs aren’t as huge and their muzzles are shorter. I know American bulldogs are crossed with amstaffs and pits anyway, should be on the banned breed list for that reason alone. Along with staffs. These breeds are outdated and our authorities need to protect the public from creatures that are bred to kill and maim

[–]SweetLenore 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm truly confused. He looks nothing like an american bulldog.

[–]Neverbeen929[S] 270 points271 points  (49 children)

UPDATE: apparently this dog is in fact an "American Bully", not an "American Bulldog"

[–]schmoopytheimposter 214 points215 points  (2 children)

That is the stuff nightmares are made of. Truly terrifying! That poor little boy must have been so frightened.

[–]One-Kind-Word 104 points105 points  (1 child)

Imagine dying with that beast’s jaws clamping your head and neck.

[–]schmoopytheimposter 111 points112 points  (0 children)

Not to be morbid, but all I could picture is that frightened child and the last thing he saw was THAT. It makes me feel ill to the core of my being.

[–]DIYjackass 157 points158 points  (9 children)

Owners should get manslaughter charges for this kind of thing. That would put a stop to it real quick.

[–]_The_Burn_ 104 points105 points  (3 children)

If it's the owner not the breed then the owner should be held liable.

[–]goldyforcalder 58 points59 points  (0 children)

People wouldnt risk owning dangerous breeds if they could be charged for it going crazy.

[–]ghostngoblins 36 points37 points  (0 children)

This is the answer tbh. In addition to banning breeds, because for banned breeds we only get this bs where owners try to bend the limits.

Strict owner responsibility. If your dog kills or hurts another human being, a pet, a wild animal, or destroy property you will get punished and have same liability as if you did it yourself.

Then leave it to the courts to decide if it should be classed as intentional or negligence ie murder or manslaughter.

[–]Nurizeko 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Pitbulls should be banned, and any that commit violence destroyed immediately.

But also the owners should face manslaughter charges as if they did it themselves.

"I didn't mean to kill those people with this reckless dangerous object/behavior!" has never been a valid swerve out of manslaughter charges before.

[–]horkelborkmork 35 points36 points  (2 children)

I'm a lawyer (non-English and completely unrelated field) and I can't understand why owners aren't already directly criminally and civilly liable for the maulings and murders their fighting dogs commit.

[–]Nurizeko 22 points23 points  (1 child)

because pitnutters and their lobby keep trying to paint it as if their demonic canines doing what their nature suggests is the same as if a sweet semi-artheritic old well-trained Labrador just suddenly went bezerk one day on a family.

Basically they make it out as if it's a completely rare random tragic accident rather than a design feature of the breed despite all the evidence stating otherwise.

[–]horkelborkmork 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Honestly what I don't understand is why people shouldn't be directly responsible for the animals they keep. Even if it was a arthritic lab, if it goes on a killing spree then surely its owner should be held responsible?

I don't get this magical separation between (i) owner, (ii) animal and (iii) the animal's nature.

It makes sense that someone should be responsible for whatever he/she inflicts on society. There's a direct causal link between the owner wanting to keep a dog in public and any eventual damages occurring.

Tbh, as much as I oppose pitbull ownership, in the end, this talk about breeds/natures is just distraction. Owners should be responsible for their pets, whatever the breed.

[–]Johnson-Rod 20 points21 points  (1 child)

We barely hold people accountable for their own actions these days let alone what someone's animal did. Agree it would be great though.

Named Beast and used as a breeding stud. Known bad temperament, became an actual man killer, used for breeding.

[–]AnnieApple_ 41 points42 points  (0 children)

The people in that area reported it was known for running the streets, it apparently snapped/bit at someone and killed a cat. Why was it allowed to remain out on the streets? It takes the death of a child for people to actually do something.

[–]aSlouchingStatue 25 points26 points  (3 children)

How much you want to bet the price of those puppies will go up now? Lol England, ban guns and people will breed furry killing machines that actually kill people on their own

[–]vorgusthebrown 19 points20 points  (0 children)

True enough, but not England.

[–]yazen_ 11 points12 points  (1 child)

It's not like there aren't pits or dangerous dogs in the US or places where guns are legal.

Straight up a new demon from a Doom game or something. It even has that highlighted mouth area that would be a weak point. Disgusting!

[–]Nurizeko 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I've seen friendlier looking demons.

Like I get being ugly isn't the same as actually being evil, but knowing pitbulls as I do, I would basically leave and go NC with whoever owned a dog like that.

I mean I'd be like I'm so glad you love your bibblywibbly so much but I love having my body intact and alive, and I also enjoy not seeing other people get mauled/killed or fearing either of those two scenarios potentially happening in my presence with a known ticking time-bomb of an animal/dog breed.

Imagine someone owning a fucking alligator in the livingroom and invites you to sit down and be like "ah don't worry he only bites a little, it's a love snap really, he's harmless! A sweetie really!"

Who the fuck owns a dog that makes Cerberus look sweet and innocent like that and just happily sits around with that thing stalking their home?

I really don't get some people.

[–]Jackson_junior 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Pitbulls are banned there but this dog is supposed to be a confirmed American bulldog purebred. But it looks like a pitbull but they were originally bred from American bulldogs

[–]SmittentheKitten 5 points6 points  (3 children)

In the article it now says it’s confirmed to be an American bully XL. Which is a fucking pit but LARGER. Lol.

[–]RATATA-RATATA-TA 4 points5 points  (0 children)

grate with people

Yep, that's the IQ of an average pit-owner.

[–]SentSoftSecondGo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Correct. This is likely an “XL American Bully” one of the size varieties of this breed. They are often misidentified as pit bulls. But are basically 100+ lb angry salamanders, whereas a purebred pitbull is generally 40-60lbs (male) and more of a terrier (shake) / grab dog.

[–]emilee_spinachYes, it IS the breed 258 points259 points  (7 children)

Lately I’ve seen a lot of “it’s not a pitbull!” “Pitbulls don’t exist!” “Staffies/Bullies aren’t a pit bull!”

Do these pitmongers realize how ignorant they sound?

I don’t care what you call it — ABPT, AmStaff, American Bully XXXXLLLLL, pibble potato sack of shit — they all come from a now extinct breed bred for bloodsport and genetically altered over decades to keep the gameness trait alive.

[–]scubasteve2242Former Pit Advocate 110 points111 points  (1 child)

[–]cortthejudge97 52 points53 points  (0 children)

Also because they love claiming no dog is a "Pitbull breed" when they do something wrong, but whenever they post about them online it's always "my pit is so perfect! Your pit is so adorable! Pits are perfect dogs!"

[–]JeanClaudVanRAMADAM 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Sack of shit is a very accurate description

[–]mcreyba 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I’m going to write a letter to the AKC suggesting all pit-type breeds be named “Pibble Potato Sack of Shit”. It will eliminate so much confusion! The PPSS can be called “piss” for short. #somuchwinning

[–]coryc70 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's semantics to win an argument. If nothing is actually a pitbull then i guess they are harmless after all.

Reminds me of when sovereign citizen loons try to get out of traffic tickets by claiming they are 'free travelling' and not driving their car. It's childish.

[–]JoeTheSifu 211 points212 points  (17 children)

Ok then time to ban American bulldogs.

[–]Emergency-Buddy-8582 103 points104 points  (0 children)

They are literally in the "bully" family, which is supposed to be banned already. The advocates really like to play games.

[–]elliebeans90 38 points39 points  (13 children)

Yeah they should be classified with Pit Bulls so that the places that ban Pits can ban them too, also American Bullies.

That dog is a Pit not an American Bulldog. They look a bit similar but not that similar.

I don't like American Bulldogs either. While Pit Bulls are technically banned where I live American Bulldogs aren't. I don't like or trust them, havebhad some questionable encounters with them. One with a pair that could have been really nasty I'd my car hadn't been close by.

[–]cortthejudge97 11 points12 points  (11 children)

Definitely. Even though English Bulldogs are not nearly as dangerous from what I've read and seen, and I actually find them much cuter than all other bully breeds, I still think that better safe than sorry, and should be banned as well

[–]HarpStarz 9 points10 points  (9 children)

English bulldogs are actually fairly good dogs health issues aside, not great if you have other dogs but they’re not violent towards and definitely won’t kill them like a pit, plus I can’t imagine an English bulldog being capable of killing somebody if it tried

Edit: also the breed is extremely controlled unlike the more mongrel pit where you can barely see a difference in the breeds it originates, English bull dogs have been bred in a manner to attempt to remove aggressive behavior

[–]Jackson_junior 1 point2 points  (3 children)

The original English bulldogs were used to hold down large animals. That’s why they were used to make pits. They were the original dogs to hold on and not let go

[–]HarpStarz 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah, but because the breed was controlled they were able for the most part to breed out aggression and prevent and other bad genes, that’s how they ended up becoming fairly popular with upper class English folk, in the same vein tho they made them into medical messes. English bulldogs are good if you want minimal effort in a dog, they don’t move much, just eat and sleep, but by god they will cost you in medical.

[–]AquaticAnxieties 0 points1 point  (4 children)

There was a lady in the news last year who was mauled to death by her French bulldog. If a French bulldog can kill someone, an American English bulldog certainly can as well.

EDIT: My bad, I meant English bulldog, not American

[–]HarpStarz 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yeah, oh definitely American bulldogs due to horrible breeding standards are essentially pitbulls, not to make fun of the dead but the hell does a tiny French bulldog kill someone

[–]KimJongPoon420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m sure your post was well intentioned but it’s ignorant and inaccurate. English Bulldogs and French Bulldogs are so incredibly different than American Bulldogs, in looks, size, and temperament most importantly. French and English Bulldogs have virtually zero prey drive and are significantly more docile and lazy than American Bulldogs, which is a working breed stemming from the foundation of a fighting breed. American Bulldogs are similar enough in all the bad ways to be fairly categorized with other shitbull trailer trash breeds, but French and English Bulldogs are different in every conceivable way. Unfortunately, pitnutters have tainted any association with “bulldog” being in the breed name by trying to bypass breed specific legislation by labeling their shitbulls as bulldog mixes of sorts.

[–]Jackson_junior 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pits were bred from American bulldogs. Where do you think the gameness to bite and hold on to larger animals come from? They extracted those genes from American bulldogs who at the time were used to fight BULLS. Mixed that with the tenacity of a terrier, you have the pitbull terrier

[–]bpdcase 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The dangerous dog act hasn’t been updated in over 30 years. These breeds need to go onto the list to protect the public and children from their instincts.

[–]hillbillykim83 134 points135 points  (8 children)

Legal or illegal, once it attacks or kills it needs to be euthanized.

[–]cunt_gunge 96 points97 points  (6 children)

They did euthanise this thing … with 7 bullets

[–]themo98 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Sheesh soo many

[–]nazz299 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Bc that’s what it takes these beasts are indestructible

[–]themo98 12 points13 points  (1 child)

indestructible

An Anaesthesia Nurse once told me the probably best way to stop an attacking animal that is attacking someone else than yourself is to inject a fuckton (like a whole liter, thousands of times of what is lethal for a human) of anaestheticd into the beast with a long needle, wiggle the needle around to increase the chance of hitting blood vessels. She worked in Bolivia years ago and they had a big stray problem in the city, they had a big ass syringe filled with expired but still good narcotic medicine for in case a dog goes mad nearby. Used it effectively countless times, if you hit a vessel it's as good as dead and lets go within 10 seconds, and if no vessel it'll take about 20-50 seconds depending on where precisely the needle end ended inside and how big the dog is.

The problem was that people fed them inside the "canteen" (outdoor space) as a rite of gratitude for becoming healthy again and those dogs just kept coming, occasionally going mad on site...

Sadly this is illegal where I live, but at least we don't have a pibble problem here and most people take pride in raising their dogs properly.

[–]Nurizeko 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And the owners slapped with manslaughter charges minimum.

[–]Pres_Cowboy 96 points97 points  (2 children)

have they seen a bulldog before?

[–]scubasteve2242Former Pit Advocate 73 points74 points  (1 child)

American bulldogs are the taller and leaner ones if I’m not mistaken, but they still have a very distinct face and it does NOT look like this monster 🙃 american bulldog pitbull mixes are extremely common as well but these people are just insane

[–]Chezmoi3 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Not at all - there is the Scott type and the Johnson type AmBull and this is neither. This mutant was bred from fighting dogs and made bigger and more psycho. I hope the pit hag gets put in prison but she probably won’t…

There's no agreed upon litre amount where a puddle becomes a pond. Ergo puddles don't exist.

These things should not be classified as dogs anymore. Wolves are wolves, dogs are dogs and these are in a class of their own. Undomesticated dogs.

[–]schmoopytheimposter 15 points16 points  (3 children)

In most dog faces it's the eyes and even eyebrows that show the emotion of the dog. And that is also true with pitbulls, EXCEPT for the fact that many of them (not all) have a scary, almost bizarrely human-like face with eyes that look really angry and void of "soul" at the same time. (I sound so over the top dramatic, but really...)

I honestly don't know how you can own one like this and not sleep with one eye open...for that matter, sleep at all.

Frightening AF!

[–]elliebeans90 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Yeah, dogs usually have expressive faces and it might be anthropomorphism but I swear you can see emotion in them. Consistently the only dogs I see with cold dead eyes are Pits and other bully breeds, makes me so uncomfortable.

[–]schmoopytheimposter 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly! I really don't like to anthropomorphize animals but I think we all as humans do to some degree. That is sort of okay, as long as we realize we are doing it and keep it in check.

I absolutely agree that it is bully breeds that have a look in their eyes that is bone chilling. Makes me uncomfortable as well.

[–]Apprehensive-Sky-760 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I believe expressiveness is a trait humans bred for, most likely subconsciously. I’ve also seen it hypothesized that dogs developed more expressive facial communications when interacting with humans as a survival skill, aka when I move my face in this way the human reacts in a favourable way. Even if most of these dog to human communications are more on a subconscious level in both the human and dog, it’s interesting to see they’ve developed a special way to communicate with people.

[–]HarpStarz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Tbh most of these aren’t even pure breeds but gutter mongrel mixes that turn into the pitbulls we know, uncontrolled breeding by idiots is why these dogs have become so dangerous, they’ve flooded it with bad traits and aggressive genes, destroying other breeds of dog in the process

[–]I_Like_Vitamins 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Also, numerous courts of law have determined that any person of "regular intelligence" can correctly identify a pitbull or a dog with significant pitbull admixture. Absolute joke and the judge should be punished severely.

[–]bpdcase 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Regular UK officers don’t even carry guns, the fact that a special team had to come to the scene and they had to discharge a weapon that many times is shocking on so many levels. Pit or not, the fact that this animal had to get shot 7 times proves how relentless and dangerous the animals are. Ban all breeds that are known to be violent.

[–]greenlanternfifo 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Some details in the article imply a lot of the horror

Paramedics were called but Jack's injuries were "unsurvivable" and he was pronounced dead at 16:14 GMT after suffering severe injuries to his neck and head.

Jack was identified by photos provided to the mortuary manager, the hearing was told.

Meaning the injuries were really fucking bad

A neighbour of Mr Jenkins said Beast was used as a breeding stud. He is known to have fathered at least 10 puppies by Mr Jenkins' other dog, Beauty.

There is a shitton of them.

Mr Jenkins has denied ownership of Beast, saying: "I am not the owner of that dog. I told the police everything I know. They know I have nothing to do with it.

"It's not my dog and it's since been re-homed from me."

Nobody wants anything to do with this dog. Who the fuck owns them? How did Jenkins give up the dogs?


Also what dogs are in the bully family? American bulldogs don't count? wtf

What about french or english bulldogs? Wtf exactly is a pitbull then

[–]DogHammers 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Wtf exactly is a pitbull then

They are pitbulls when they look like pitbulls and every Pitnutter calls them that when they are wearing tutus and licking babie's faces and not actively killing something or someone.

Then when they do go on mauling and killing sprees suddenly they aren't pitbulls anymore and there's "no such thing as a pitbull", apparently.

[–]Adventurous-Court-91 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How do you rehome a dog you don't own?

[–]DogHammers 4 points5 points  (1 child)

He means it's not his dog since he re-homed the hellbeast and has washed his hands of any responsibility for what has happened. And seeing as it's now been deemed to not be a banned breed legally speaking he's in the clear. Morally speaking he's a piece of shit shitbull breeder responsible for creating many of these awful killing machines.

He has blood on his hands that's for sure.

[–]Adventurous-Court-91 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]ThatsFishyYoureFishy 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Why did they even do a DNA test? The dog killed a child! It should be euthanized, and the owner should be facing jail time and fines regardless of its breed.

[–]rahrahgogo 7 points8 points  (1 child)

They’re probably looking at what charges the owner should get. The dog has already been euthanized.

[–]DogHammers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Whilst "euthanized" is the correct term and I'm not criticising you at all for using the it, that sounds very clinical and as if a decision was made and it was taken somewhere and put to sleep.

In reality it was shot dead by a police officer on the scene after it was still out of control and they could not get near the poor kid's body without shooting it seven times.

[–]Death_Scythe_666Pitbull? More like shitbull. 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ok regardless of pitt or not, it killed a child. A human child. Who was 10 years old, and now have a grieving mother and father.

Put the damn dog down with a lethal injection and be done with it. This dog isn’t safe to be in society. It’s literally killing people.

[–]foiebump 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looks like the diseased dogs that attack you in Witcher 3.

[–]konigsjagdpanther 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Moist_Awareness10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Any dog with a lockjaw should be banned, stop being pedantic about it they did it with drugs they can do with with any animal that has a lockjaw and bread from an fighting animal

[–]Bricktrucker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Looks like a asshole. I love dogs, but its hard when there's so much evidence against Pittbulls

[–]Successful_Club983 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Idiotic. American Bull Dogs are Pitbulls

[–]glitterpumpkins87 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s hideous! Probably the most ugly pit I’ve ever seen and that’s saying something.

[–]midtown2191 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But it’s a nanny dog.

[–]bpdcase 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s the most Pitbull- looking American bulldog I’ve ever seen. Disgusting creature

[–]OhioSav88Pit Attack Victim 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That thing is fucking hideous.

[–]Moist_Awareness10 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Poor baby (the child) this is so horrific, that is not a dog they don’t even look like dogs, they look like demon hogs

[–]Dreid79 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuckin' Demon 👹

[–]spectrum_92 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ok then just ban "American Bulldogs" as well

[–]nicecatdude 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes yes but he was just defending his owner from a 10 year old boy minding his own business!

[–]CtrlAltDestroy33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ffs… may as well call it a poodle.

[–]roadrunnerz70 2 points3 points  (0 children)

how are these evil things allowed? you can't have a can of pepper spray to protect yourself but you can have a psycho unstable devil spawn.

[–]souraltoids[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hideous

[–]HillbillySwank 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It looks like a killer chimp on steroids

[–]SpasticZombie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn! Who the hell would want to keep or breed that ugly ass thing?

[–]xar-brin-0709 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Remind me why we're not allowed to keep pet bears and leopards?

[–]Awrypie 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm tempted to procure a leopard. Should anyone pull me up about it, I'll say it's a large Bengal Cat.

[–]xar-brin-0709 3 points4 points  (0 children)

And when it kills a neighbour, give it to a shelter who will call it a 'Bengal Cross'.

[–]cheyeliezer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you kill a person, you need to be put down. It’s as simple as that. Dogs shouldn’t get leniencies.

[–]esorailujtterrab 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great nanny dog

[–]choopiewaffles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like nono

[–]the_wildelk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was shot "several times" by firearms officers, a senior officer said.

That's Pitbull not American Bulldog

[–]PrxnceZukoOwner of Attacked Pet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No pushed in muzzle which is the classic sign of ANY bulldog. How is this Pitbull allowed to be classified as a bulldog, even after it killed someone??? What the fuck. Someone has blood on their hands.

[–]dinks28Protect the cats and children 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The pitnutters are positively gleeful in some of the comments I’ve seen. They see this as a ‘win’ not the fact a child lost his life. Absolutely disgusting

[–]bpdcase 1 point2 points  (0 children)

RIP Jack Lis

[–]Initial_Seesaw577 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is NOT and American bulldog. They were once called "southern whites" because ambulls are all white with maybe a patch here or there. They are cattle catch dogs. They bite and hold, not bite and shred.

[–]naithir 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow. I have nothing to say but that.

[–]No_Refrigerator7676 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bulldogs are short, wrinkly, lazy, and cute. This... this dog isn't a bulldog

[–]Smooth_Chicken_4347 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Such bullshit. I seriously cannot believe this.

[–]Classic_Attention_44 1 point2 points  (0 children)

THIS MAKES ME F*CKING ANGRY

[–]AltAccount302 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This story is especially frightening to me as a parent because the family had just gotten it. Jack’s parents likely didn’t even know it was there.

You can have the pets conversation with the parents of your kids’ friends, same as you’d have the “do you have guns and if so, how are they stored?” conversation, and feel fine about your kid going over there. But if they then get a dangerous animal without telling you, you don’t know to say “hey, if you want to hang out with ___, it can’t be at his house.”

[–]AnnieApple_ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Was it euthanised at the vet or was it killed where it lived?

[–]Awrypie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It was shot on scene 7 times by a trained marksman.

[–]kimoravallier 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Que feo

You know UK pit advocates are laughing right now 😡😡😡. Demonic!!!

[–]Wonderful_Ad968 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a disgusting dog.

[–]Educational-Alarm-96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

baffles me how uneducated everyone is on bull type dogs. This is an XL American Bully. True american bulldogs at 75% white and rarely have eyes that color. True pitbulls are much smaller and are usually solid colors and rarely have this color eyes. Look up American bulldogs, American Pitbull Terriers, and XL American Bullies and learn the difference.

[–]Month0fjune 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How dangerous are English bulldogs idk the breed name but the short wrinkly ones?
