10 thoughts on “Judge Rules in Favor of Loudon County's 'No Adopt Out' Pit Bull Policy

Please review our comment policy.

  1. These pit bull nuts want dogs that have FAILED temperament tests to be placed.

    No joke!

    The shelter says, look, there aren’t enough rescues even for the ones that DO pass temperament tests.

    So these psychotics want the taxpayer to harbor vicious dogs to attack animal control workers, or perhaps to hand them out as free stock for dog fighters.

    (By the way, a pit bull rescue woman that showed up at a pitiful 12 person “demonstration” told the reporter that she tells potential foster families that pit bulls are good with children to coerce them into tasking pits as foster dogs. I’ll find the name.)

  2. It is time for county attorneys and authorities who should know better (like Zeta Thompson) to stop acting as shills for the dog fighting and dog breeding industry.

  3. Sorry put this under wrong entry

    And it is very clear that “straw men” are being set up to get their names on the lawsuit paper work INSTEAD of the dog breeders and breeder lobbyists that are behind these lawsuits.

    That information is being kept hidden from the judges and courts, in part because most of the breeders are running illegal operations and are tax cheats and don’t want to be looked at too closely in court.

  4. I don’t understand. Zeta is the county attorney defending the No Adopt Out policy, I would not call her a “shill.” I’m sure that part of the reason why the policy is in place is to protect pit bulls from falling into the hands of dogfighters…

  5. Kudos to a judge with the critical thinking skills and lack of bias to see this bogus lawsuit for what it really was, an attempt by breeders to muscle their agenda onto a community that doesn’t want to drink their kool-aid. It’s a shame that any tax payer money had to be spent on this farce, but I take consolation in knowing that the nutters had to put up some of their own cash, too, and still failed.

  6. They fought this because if the breed is too dangerous to adopt out, then the reality is they are to dangerous to breed and sell!

    It is all about keeping breeding markets open and liability free.

  7. If the Pit Bull community wants local, state and the federal Government to take on liability , they need to start culling and produce safer dogs.

    It is that simple!

  8. If you look at the so-called “pit bull rescue groups” involved in this, they all use dog fighter and breeder propaganda.

    This was the breeder lobby behind this lawsuit trying to be sneaky.

  9. Every shelter in the country should take advantage of this ruling and stop adopting out pits. I hope everyone understands just how important this is as a precedent.
