Tucson pitbulls event follow-upby Karyn Zoldan on Nov. 16, 2011, under Animal Events, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged, Pet Health & Safety
Here are some photos from Monday’s Pit n’ Proud support walk around Reid Park.
My friend Kate who writes Eco-Tucson blog and I went out to meet the Pits and get some exercise.
The crowd was impressive and Fox-11 and KGUN-9 were out. The Pit Bulls mingled quietly as did some mixed breeds, a Rottie or two, some Chihuahuas (one wearing a green turtle neck dog coat).
One thing I did notice is that some dogs were not neutered.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that’s a macho guy thing. Dude, nobody wants to mess with your manhood but please neuter your dog which also makes him less aggressive. Every Pit Bull owner (or any breed owner for that matter) should be spaying and neutering their dogs. Here’s a list of where you can get your dog spayed for free or for a nominal fee here in Tucson. (download the flyer).
We don’t need no more stinkin’ backyard breeders selling dogs on the corner or in Wal-Mart parking lots. No reputable breeder posts signs on a telephone pole. Tear it down! No free advertising for backyard breeders.
We don’t need any more oops litters.
We don’t need to have any more unwanted pets sitting on PACC’s death row waiting to be euthanized.
The rant in favor of spay & neuter applies to all breeds not just bully breeds. Be a responsible pet owner.
