    I haven't had much time to write this, and watching the death row dogs on iplayer reminded me.

    The 3 out of the 5 Staffie/Mastiff puppies that I had around for a few weeks last spring/summer have been PTS due to failing the "pitbull test". After spending some time with them I was a bit heartbroken when I heard the news, they were so people orientated and even when Benjie grumbled at them they settled and it is hard to believe that these sweet girls have been PTS, first I thought it was only a rumour, then I spoke to the person who took them in (she runs a rescue from her home) and she confirmed it.

    Lu-Lu - timid but sweet.

    Sally - outgoing and playful.

    Mavis - the cheeky one.

    They were looking for new homes but never had the chance to see one.

    that is so sad :( so all they were guilty of was looking like a 'type' ??????????
    seriously what is the world coming to?? should we get a description from crime records of the 'type' of person that murders, rapes, steals etc and just lock them all up because they look like the 'type' !!!!! :mad:

    I hate people, honestly if i won the lottery i would quite happily buy myself an island and just have dogs for company!!!! :eek:

    that is just so sad and just soooooo wrong ........ there is no reason why these stunning dogs with the right owner, the right training and the right exercise couldnt have been the most loving family pets.


    Its all just so unfair.

    Run free sweet girls Malmum is right this world was not good enough for you. I am sorry you were let down so badly :crying:

    So sad :( this world is so cruel and unfair sometimes.

    It breaks my heart when I think of how much love and loyalty those poor creatures were able to give...only to be treated in such a disgusting way by the very species they wanted to give it to! :nonod:

    RIP girls...be happy and free for the first time in your short lives, the humans didn't deserve your love anyway.

    Rest in peace little ones
    All so gorgeous and with the right owners would have been very happy and healthy.
    Were the other two managed to be rehomed? Hopefully they are safe:)

    Those pups were lovely and I hope they are running wild up their having a good time which they deserve. Xx

    As for the people who came up with this disgusting law, words aren't enough to express my anger :mad5:

    After seeing that programme last night, it hadnt really crossed my mind too much before, but this really is so wrong. How can other people aggressive dogs be allowed to roam free and these be pts just because of their type.

    I had a boxer the other day get aggressive with one of my dogs and when the owner eventually came and picked it up (it had escaped with no collar the lad came out with no lead), it was growling and going mental at me stood opposite it. It was only the fact that my dogs were constantly moving that stopped it being worse.

    The lady, my neighbour was distraught, she'd had these pups from 10 weeks after a couple had bred them and couldn't sell the litter, they just dumped them on the dog warden. She had a litter of 9, she kept a boy and 5 girls remained after the others found homes. She kept them in her house, as she does with her other dogs, which means they were perfect for being rehomed, they were house trained, didn't countersurf, didn't chew, were calm around the house - perfect candidates for family homes. But a few weeks before the lady had a few scraps between these 3 to deal with and someone must have said something because the police and dog warden went round and must have seized them and did all that stupid measuring thing but Lu-Lu, Mavis and Sally weren't so lucky.

    At least they don't have to deal with people's ignorance now.

    How terribly sad :(
    There are times that I am thoroughly ashamed to be human.

    At least, it seems, these wee girls are going to have plenty of playmates waiting at the bridge x

    How sad and cruel :mad:

    Obviously easier to get rid of them all than do more checking on each individual dog.
    I didnt watch the programme last night, too upsetting. Although if I had to have a choice, I would rather those poor dogs be PTS than end up as fighting dogs in the hands of some heartless thugs.
