Pitbull bully breed and the struggles they endure
As a member of the ever growing bully community, I often find myself pulled between the conflicts that face our breed and a community that to some was created in spite of these conflicts. The pitbull bully breed community for the most part a community of breeders.
The shows a gathering of these breeders, and the magazines, radio shows, websites vehicles of the bully lifestyle. The bully world is made up of all things that makes dogs wonderful, but also all the struggle that makes owning this breed difficult. A times the community seems as if it is made up of only money and breedings.
However, the community is a great environment of learning, involvement, and stereotype breaking. You see education to the masses is difficult, a large number of Bully owners are not only new Bully owners, but new dog or pitbull bully breed owners.
It takes leaders in our community to educate these individuals about responsible breeding, not only talking about the very few dogs that should be bred and why, but most importantly educating why most dogs should not be bred.
Unlike any other registry or community the bully community is still able to attract hundreds of people and dogs to their events.
They have to use these large gatherings to educate. The Bully World must take it upon itself to utilize the pedestal of change and the microphones of knowledge that can help the dogs that can’t help themselves.
For every person I see at a bully show, for every dog, I smile because this is a dog that is not left in a backyard, left in a crate, or hidden from the sight of the masses. I know that these dogs are being cared for, and if they are not I can voice what needs to be done. This owner and pet involvement is key in regards to breaking stereotypes about our breed.
I know that each of the benefits can be met by naysayers that scream but at what cost, but as a cruelty investigator that sees the issues of overpopulation I know that the problems have to be tackled one house at a time.
Where does each individual belong in the Bully world? They belong where they can do the most and give the most, and that is where your heart takes you.
Where the fight leads them, and where they feel they are doing the most good. The message will be met with open ears sometimes and close minds more often than that, but there is no larger reward than knowing when you change the ideals of a potential backyard breeder.
Best of luck to all that pursue change through education, because the pitbull bully breed needs all ambassadors, and the breeds saints come in all shapes, from all walks of the community, and we all often feel helpless in the fight, but when you feel the most weak remember that if you fight for this breed, you will never feel stronger than at the moment that you beat the conflict that almost made you quit!
