that’s how many pit bulls/pit bull mixes are now in bettiepagestyled‘s Flickr set “pit bull death row“, and these are only the ones that looked pit-related – there were many others that were not bully breeds that she didn’t get photos of. can you even imagine 470 dead dogs?! this is an epidemic, and a tragedy. each of these dogs get 3 days, then they are put down killed. i’m not mincing words here. if you live in houston, and you are looking for a canine companion, research the breed and see if it fits your lifestyle and personality – if it does, PLEASE SWING BY THE HSPCA or YOUR LOCAL CITY SHELTER and CONSIDER ADOPTION. sure, puppies are cute, but there are many benefits to rescuing an older dog. please, do your due diligence, and consider saving a dog.
