MSPCA Barking Up Wrong Tree?

Challenging reading from the Dogsbite blog here.

 Despite the prevalence of pit bull specific benefits and incentives like free spay and neuter, they continue to allow their pet dogs to have litters. But the “accidental litters” produced by irresponsible pet owners cannot explain the tidal wave of homeless pit bulls entering our shelter systems. The fact that money is being made breeding and selling pit bulls for dog fighting, to guard drug operations, and as thug fashion accessories, has not been addressed by humane organizations; perhaps because they realize that no amount of “education” is going to change this. Criminals, drug dealers, gang members, dog fighters, and losers looking to make a quick buck; those are the people breeding the pit bulls that end up dumped and abandoned to the shelter system.

They insist that “owner education” will solve the pit bull crisis. What they can’t admit is that the “irresponsible owners” don’t want to be educated; in fact, the criminals and low lifes breeding pit bulls provide an endless supply of pit bulls to anyone with the cash. Keeping dogs out of the hands of irresponsible owners requires proper breed stewardship, and that is the primary job of breeders. Since pit bull breeders are criminally irresponsible, anyone, regardless of their ability to care for a dog, can acquire a pit bull.

The assertion by humane groups that the pit bulls that flood their shelters are all wonderful family pets that will never show aggression if raised with love and “socialized”, defies logic. Behavior in domestic dogs is greatly influenced by selective breeding, which means you get what you breed for, and often what you don’t actively breed against. We can easily quantify the fact that the majority of people breeding pit bulls today are at best grossly irresponsible, at worst criminals and animal abusers with malicious intent. Many individuals breeding pit bulls are deliberately breeding dog aggressive and human aggressive dogs for dog fighting and to serve as guard dogs. Many more are breeding for traits like big heads, the color blue, etc., and are ignoring temperament altogether. None of these breeders have a goal of producing stable, friendly, biddable family dogs.
