Pit Bull Heroes Hall of Fame

Stories about pit bull attacks are tragic, but isolated incidents.  Those stories are blasted all over the news, but it’s stories like the ones below that people never hear about.  These are the stories of pit bull heroes – the dogs who selflessly defend their families from heinous crimes, save other animals from certain death, and pull their human guardians to safety in times of danger

Stories about pit bull bravery and heroism are by themselves powerful arguments against breed specific legislation.

    I would like to add another hero that paid for saving his owner with his life last Saturday Jan. 12 2012. RIP BRAVE PUTZ!!!http://www.examiner.com/dogs-in-national/heroic-dog-inspires-new-rules-at-shelter The Rose Brooks Center for women chief executive officer, Susan Miller, made the decision to break the rules and took in a domestic violence victim and Great Dane. The dog had saved his owner from her hammer-wielding boyfriend. “She was not going to leave her pet alone with him,” Miller said. “He saved her life.” That decision would go on to lead to a change in policy at the shelter. About 40 percent of battered women with pets stay in abusive relationships to protect or remain with their pets. Shelter officials say they’ve seen a 300 percent increase in applications since becoming pet-friendly.
    http://www.examiner.com/dogs-in-national/dog-put-to-death-video So why would a judge condemn another dog to death for saving his owner? A Pit bull named Putz was put to death by Minneapolis Animal Care and Control. Putz was taken in by ACC after protecting his owner from her abusive ex-husband. The same ex-husband whom, in a past incident, held a knife to her dog’s throat and treated to kill it. According to the owner of Putz the ex-husband was trying to hit her and Putz jumped up to her rescue and bit the man. Two heroic canines, two very different endings. Who can tell me why?

      Hi, I have emailed back and forthe with Minneapolis animal control. I let them know that the rescue community would make sure that people who have donated in the past wouls no longer donate and that people who were considering donating to them would stop once they heard what killers they were. Here is there email minneapolis311@ci.minneapolis.mn.us

    Awesome: Here’s what my dog loves to do: http://i.minus.com/iwBI0gYqmYjDD.jpg (love him, but he’s lazy as heck). Then again, at 12 years old, he deserves the rest!

  20. Imagine all the other ‘bully’ heros out there that the lame stream media refused to portray in a good light. The headline for the recent case of the missing 3 year old protected by his pittie buddy overnight stated only ‘Dog Protects Lost Toddler’. Had he bitten someone, it would have screamed PIT BULL in bold capital letters!

  28. Here’s another story I really liked. A woman was leaving a park with her 2 year old son when a man tried to attack her and a Pitbull-mix ran up and chased the man off. Her and her son had never even seen the dog before. The woman ran for her car and put her son in his car seat and before she could get in and drive off, the pit came back, jumped into her backseat next to the little boy and just waited until the cops and animal control got there. THIS is a story that should have made every headline but, of course, didn’t,
