Patron gets a second chance..
I'm really late with this...but I found out that Patron, James Harrison's pit bull is getting a second chance and is getting adopted by an unidentified lady who is going to rehab him and make him adoptable again. As I was searching for this article again, I kept finding headlines for Pit Bull Mauling or Steeler's Dog Mauls Son. When I opened all of these, everytime it said it was a bite on the boys thigh, no serious injury. I hate that this happened and it was wrong for the dog to do it. But I'm really glad he will get a second chance in a home without small kids. I just hate that instead of bite or just what it was can't be put in the headlines. For Pit Bulls its ALWAYS a MAULING! Ugh! The definitions that I found online for mauling is injuring like a beating, or to handle roughly. Unfortunately now the meaning to me seems like a bit in the face, more than just handling roughly. Anyway, I just hate negative media, just glad that someone felt this dog deserved another chance. Thanks Rebecca, Megan and Emily for the comments.
