A badly socialized dog of any breed is more of a risk than a well socialized bully breed - by the way - there is no such breed of dog as a pit bull this is simply a blanket term used for any dog of general appearance.

Noted and signed - It is just beyond me as to how countries are allowed to get away with this. If it were my dog, they would die trying and still not get it right and there is just no way in hell that I would hand over one of my dogs to someone else to be put down. Just no way!!!! They need to fight to save him.

Not a FB member so cannot sign. While at the site I was horrified to see how many petitions are out for innocent dogs on death row. It's astounding how so-called "humans" manage to demonize every living creature except themselves. God help us. We know not what we do.

Noted, Signed & Shared! This sounds like Lennox, a very loving sweet-natured dog who was taken from his family just because he looked like a pit bull. Lennox never harmed anyone but was still put down because of what he looked like! It was a heartbreaking story! I sure hope that our petition will help this dog who is such a victim of injustice. I will pray for Bobo and his family!

So sorry - don't use FB - but I hope and pray that Bobo will be returned to his family. What a lovely dog - and he doesn't even look like a pitbull (not that that means a bad thing, as pitbulls can be as loving as any other dog) - but what lunatic took him away from his family?
