Re: “Death Row Dogs

Here is the link I tried to post earlier. This montage contains pit bulls that were rescued from the Memphis Animal Shelter, Marion Arkansas Animal Shelter, Little Rock Arkansas Animal Shelter, Tipton County Animal Shelter and other shelters not in this area. Some of the dogs on this video were rescued as strays. The black dog with no ears was a fighter in South Memphis. I rescued her and couldn't let her go. I wake up every morning to her kisses. Merci's love of humans is unbelievable. ENJOY the montage of children and the pit bulls who love them. I wonder how many dogs as wonderful as Merci are sitting in the Memphis Animal Shelter this morning ....... waiting to die. Donna Velez, Hearts of Gold Pit Rescue, Memphis, Tennessee

Re: “Death Row Dogs

Just to clarify the post from vgurl6. The first part of her post was quoted from my website and my name followed. The rest of the post was vgurl16 comments. I wanted to avoid any confusion. Donna Velez Hearts of Gold Pit Rescue I hope this link works >>

Here are vgurl16's comments: "There is no greater gift than the unconditional love of a dog. This article by Bianca Phillips is in excellent fashion and she should be commended for it. Pit bulls are canines, canines have teeth for which to protect themselves, feed themselves, etc. These incompetent and ugly, I can't even begin to call them humans, need to face stiffer penalties! How about having these incompetents fight each other in a bloodstained backyard and the dogs can do the 'betting'!! Wake the hell up, dogs do as they have been raised. If they are treated well, they behave well. If they are mistreated they misbehave. I'm sick of the status quo that pit bulls serve in the black community! Again, wake the hell up!!"
