Pit Bull owners are used to facing unfair discrimination and negativity based on society’s misguided belief that their dogs are aggressive fighters. The breed in general battles the “mean dog” stereotype on a daily basis, but one dog owner took to Imgur to send a message about breed discrimination.
Imgur user FreeTimeResults decided to send their neighbor a very public message about the way he viewed their dog. They wrote,
“When you first met my dog, you pretended to be a huge pit bull enthusiast. You said you used to have a pit and that mine was such a sweetheart.”
“You’re totally right, my dog is terrifying. Her death stare gives me the chills too.”
“Damn this breed for existing.”The Imgur post is pointed and sarcastic, but it describes the real problem with breed discrimination. While dogs sometimes behave differently toward family members than they do toward strangers, that fact is as true for Golden Retrievers as it is for Pit Bulls. The dog owner who made this post sent a message that their dog is more than a misunderstood breed.
