So I work with a few guys that also have APBTs. They all show me pics of theirs and of course I gush over mine all the time. Anyway, a few weeks ago one of the guys tells me "oh yeah my pit and my other dog (a golden or lab cant remember) got into a bad fight I had to break them up". So of course I ask if they are ok and what he plans on doing to keep it from happening again... He then tells me "oh it was just a scuffel they are fine and what do mean what am I gonna do?"
So I try and drop hints that he should have already been separating them unless supervised but now it is even more important and that he should start separating them for most of their time if not all of the time. He of course gets all defensive and argumentative so I let it be.
Well today he brings his dog (lab or golden whichever) in with him because it has to go to the vet. Why? Because it got into it again with his pit and let me tell you it ripped into this poor dog. So I freak and I am looking her over cause her wounds are very infected and the whole side of her face is swollen! When I ask him what happened he says "Oh she just pi'd him off again, she tried to get in his food bowl" What?!!!! You have got to be f&*$ing kidding me. So of course my first reaction is " You feed them together?" He says no he just leaves food out. So at this point I had to walk away before I lit him up.
So now hes going to take this dog to the vet and the vet is going to have to report the pit and the pit will be deemed a vicious dog! All because he isnt being a responsible owner and he fed them together!
I would love to just go off on him but it wouldnt do any good and its my workplace but I dont even know if I can stay calm enough to try and talk some reason into him.
As far as I am concerned he shouldnt have dogs!!
