We've been asked the question, why are YOU PEOPLE chaining yourselves to doghouses? You ain't no dogs!
These usually come from pit bull fighters (not that they are admitting they are pit bull fighters, they are pretending to be pit bull LOVERS) who think that it's just fine and dandy to chain up their pit bulls or other big dogs for life.
And then they wonder why people want to ban their breed? You make your dog unsocialized and aggressive by chaining him or her, give them free access to any small child wandering up, and are surprised by the outcome? What planet are you from?
The fact is, chaining a dog for life isn't right, dogs deserve SO much better, and we chain ourselves to doghouses because they have no voice. They have no ability to say "I don't want to be here, I want to be with YOU." They can't say that in a way most humans understand or listen to. So we're saying it for them.
Please, become an advocate for chained dogs. Take a stand in your area against this abuse, and expect your law enforcement to enforce laws limiting cruelty.
