To me animals were never a concern. Animals were just creatures put on this earth, and whatever happened to them, well, I simply didn’t care. I saw them as just animals that didn’t have feelings or even much intelligence. I always did love animals; I just didn’t think much of them. My views on that have changed tremendously. I never knew how wrong I was.
Animal abuse has gone on for too long and gotten entirely out of hand. Working at a pet store I see first hand on how people treat their animals. People bring their pets in everyday. Seeing how some people treat the animals would turn your stomach. I now believe that animals feel and think just as people do. When people abuse them it upset me to watch the poor defenseless animal lie there, scared stiff. Animals can’t talk for themselves, so that’s why people must talk for them. Of all the animals that I see come in the store, dogs seem to get the raw end of the deal. I’ve seen more dogs abused than anything else.
I have seen more dogs dropped off than I would care to remember. Temperament depends on the handler, and how the dog was raised. Watching abuse as it happened changed my point drastically. People like this need to feel the same beating they just gave. Just by being around these abusing handlers can change peoples opinion drastically. People just need to be educated of how bad this problem has really gotten to understand why I feel this way. Kicking and hitting a puppy so hard that he"tms crying because he"tms injured, all over a barking problem, is simply cruel and ridiculous. Countless number of pitts that I see come in have scars all over from fighting. Seeing this is gutwrenching as it happens. I believe in it to a certain extent. This is why pitts seem to have a bad reputation, when I"tmve seen plenty of them be as gentle as a kitten. people believe in physical discipline. When a dog comes in the vets so ate up with mange that there is barely any hair left on its body, and he"tms itching so badly he"tms bleeding makes me wonder how these people never realized any time before that something could be wrong with him. Sometimes spanking a dog can help enforce rules, as long as its not taken too far.
