America's Dog: the shelter pet!

Pit Bull dog with American Flag Bandana

Many people carry biases against certain breeds of dogs. It seems the American Pitbull Terrier always manages to make the news for a bite or an attack. While there are problem dogs within every breed, not every dog within a breed is a problem dog.

"Watts" was a handsome Pitbull dog that came into the animal shelter on June 26, 2019. When his hold expired and no owner came looking for him, it was time to find him a new home. After doing well on an interaction with another dog, it was outside for some glamour shots.

Part of my job as an animal shelter photographer and rescue coordinator is to overcome those prejudices people might have against a particular pet. One look at Watts' cheekbones and wide head and many click off his adoption page. But something as simple as a bandana can help soften an image. And with the Independence Day holiday coming up on July 4th in America, why not a patriotic American Flag Bandana!

With so many dogs in America's animal shelters, do your patriotic duty and adopt a dog like "Watts" for the Fourth of July!!!!

Thanks Augustine! Your recent snake blog is still inspiring me. I just wrote another blog about snake bites I may call "Perils of Snake Photography" Part 2, in honor of you! I'll probably wait a bit to post it though. Lots of snake blogs lately. Don't want to make people squeamish! lol

"While there are problem dogs within every breed, not every dog within a breed is a problem dog" - truly important information for those of us who don't know much about Dogs. Thanks William, as always your articles reveal characteristics about animals that we all need to know.
