‘Dog racism’ behind move to evict pit bull, lawyer claims

A 63-pound pit bull its owner claims is a therapy dog “savagely attacked” an eight-pound pooch that visits pediatric cancer patients outside the owners’ Chelsea condo, a new lawsuit claims.

Now the condo board is suing to evict the pit bull — a move the owner’s lawyer slams as “dog racism.”

    How many roads must dog walk down, before they call him a dog?

    The answer my friends, is blowing in the wind. The answer is blowing in the wind.

    Lawyers will say anything to make a buck. They’re a lot like used car salesmen.

    Pitt bulls have been bred for years to be killers, so perhaps it is accurate to call them a dangerous breed.

    On a biological basis, different breeds of dog are exactly the same as different races of people. In fact in French I believe they even use the same word, since they call dog breeds races. If it is accurate to make general statements about the temperament, intelligence and character of different breeds of dogs, which most people agree with, you can make exactly the same generalizations about different races of people.

      You are correct that in French what is called “breed” in English is “race” for livestock, dogs and cats.

        Although generalizations are usually false . . . Including this one.

    People with those dogs generally pass their aggressive inferiority on to the pooch.

    I have had a few pit bulls out here in the country with no atrocities. They are happy and loyal but they are not a city dog where the unrest of every day life keeps them on edge. AND most have problems with strange dogs which can be good or bad depending on what you need.
    Now that I am older and less capable of getting around, I have started specializing in Rat Terriers after converting my beloved squirrel dog Qtip (at 8 weeks, he looked like a large ball of cotton used to clean your ears of wax) into a house pet. They are generally calm but alert (minor yippiness), insanely loyal and clean friendly house mates. They make excellent family dogs being fiercely protective of children and can/will leap up at an aggressor and bite him in the face! Perhaps the biggest drawback for some people is their fixation with critters and they will dig relentlessly to get one. The Rat part of the name is not an accident. Watching one in a barnful of rats is an amazing thing.
