  1. Child welfare and humane groups insist they care about child and animal welfare and say “if you see cruelty, say something”.

    We see and speak out against the cruelty of intentionally breeding FOR unprovoked prolonged attacks and agsinst the (mongering) promoting the acquisition of these bully dogs and the bully people tell us,
    “Shut up! We don’t care.”

  2. Good luck with making reports to those child welfare agencies. Believe me, I’ve tried.

    In one instance, it took three years before I found an agency that would listen. And this was a blatant case of child neglect and abuse. With no pit bulls involved.

  3. This is so heartbreaking. How many of these poor babies have to die at the jaws of these breeds? I respect people’s right to own whatever breed they wish but they should at least understand the risks of adopting one.

  4. Can anyone think of a good reason to have a Bull Mastiff around a baby? Come on people! It’s time to stop convincing yourself that these dogs weren’t created for destruction. I never let my toddlers near my declawed cats without direct supervision. I can’t begin to imagine having an irrational beast that weighs more than me prancing around my house, kids or no kids.

  5. (Pit) bull mastiffs- pit bull 2.0
    Having any large dog around a child is moronic. Having a molossar breed around a child is moronic. The outcome is predictable.
