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.
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
