would you adopt an abused rescue dog? Posted on January 27, 2023 by Anonymous would you adopt an abused rescue dog?
Pretty much the only way I would get a dog tbh. Not necessarily an "abused" dog, but certainly a "rescue". Probably wouldn't be something like a staffy, but a small and/or docile mutt that's fine around cats sure, since I have 5 of the buggers (all "rescues", 4 tabbys and a moronman). Pic related, the kittens I got from mum's friend last week
Yes but no shitbulls, pugs or other deliberately dysgenic dogs
I did. It was tough for maybe a few weeks, but you could really tell he just needed to know that someone cared about him. Had him 6 years now and I can safely say he’s the best dog I’ve ever known. He’s a regal Swiss shepherd though, not some ghetto shitbull.
Not a pit, no. Sorry but that breed is cursed.
I did adopt one, a border collie mix. He was just hand shy. He was 3 years old when I adopted him and he died last year at 19.
Miss that little bro like you wouldn't believe.
Has anyone else shared their power level?
I have an akita that was thrown out of a car and left in my neighborhood as a juvenile
She is fine with small animals but wants to fuck up anything her size or larger and doesnt like strangers but the only time shes bit a person was a moron who I got into a fight with while bringing in groceries because he tried to steal them out my open trunk.
I can function fine around her issues but I dont pretend they dont exist. If I had a kid id have to get rid of her and when my nephews were younger Id put her on a leash and let them give her a treat and pet her before putting her outside or in a room so I didnt have to supervise
She also acts alot like a cat though, she doesnt need me to give her constant attention but will approach if she wants some head scratches or is hungry/wants to go out etc.
Sounds like a personality par for the course for an akita anon, and not behavior caused by her trauma background. Good that you acknowledge her personality and take it into account with hansling her, unlike 90% of pitbull and stafford owners.
r/banpitbulls again, what a coincidence, what are the chances....
What is the point of owning an animal you need to gag, drug and cage?
Cat killing is normal dog behavior. Cats are prey animals to any medium or larger canine, as well as prey animals to other felines. Everything eats cats - cheetahs, jaguars, servals, painted wolves, hyenas, lions, crocodiles, birds of prey, etc. It's why they're always skittish and try and remain undetected, not just when they hunt. This has nothing to do with pitbulls. The only way pitbulls are special here is they will continue killing a cat if it stands up for itself and fights back, when most dogs will fall for the bluff and give up.
Greyhounds are considered gentle natured, non-aggressive dogs ideal for families but are major cat killers. Even herding dogs will kill cats. A dog doesn't recognize the difference between a cat and a rabbit unless purposefully socialized to, and even then they will slip up and act out their instincts. Both are small, edible, and kick and claw when cornered.
>But I swear my dog is meant to be nice
If you would not raise a cat with a rat without expecting the cat to kill the rat you should not place cats with medium and larger dogs. If a cat was the size of a medium+ dog would you put it in a room with a chihuahua? Maybe if you hated the chihuahua?
wtf, my dog met the neighbours cat unexpectedly last week and only ran up to sniff his butthole.
Wild dogs killing cats is normal, in domesticated dogs however we have raised dogs next to all kinds of animals and have never tolerated our pets killing our other animals unexpectedly, you say 'purposefully socialized to' as if raising a domesticated dog is somehow some special uberdog skill only elite k9 units are trained to do cause it's SO HARD! Maybe if you have a mentally ill dog who has a need to spill blood, real dogs can be trained.
I do not own and will never own a cat. My dog will never know cats as anything more than pointy squirrels. Keep them leashed and fenced and we won’t have a problem.
Some retard has a pet rat. Why didn’t you socialize your cat to be nice to the rattos huh? Rattos are frens they eat bugs
Yeah, people had all kinds of pet rats in the 1500s. Clean and smart little guys
And europe’s prolific cats not only failed to get rid of them, but brought plague fleas into rat-free homes. This lead to cats being seen as bad omens.
Hygiene >>>>>>> free roaming pets.
Found that one on Facebook
Thank God you dont own this shithound. Bringing chaos and uncertainty into the people around you's lives is objectively evil and you will suffer in a hell of your own design, tortured by demons you can neither see or understand.
He's a Serb, he already lives in his own kind of hell, staffed by his Turkish kin.
>a content aggregating website has instances of two images on it
I, for one, am shocked and now think that pitbulls should be mandatory for every house with babies in it. Well done!
I did, it was permanently racist. Gave it to a white family with a house. Adopted another dog, it's also racist against black people. I can't win.,
No, but would you abuse a rescued adoption dog?
I have an abused rescue dog already. He was messed up pretty badly by his previous piece of shit owners before he managed to run off and get hit by a car. He broke both of his back legs and my local humane society spent something like $6000 unfucking him. He's a fantastic dog, but even 5 years later he's still terrified of bright lights, loud noises, and sudden movements.
But you know what he isn't? He isn't a pitbull. I don't ever need to worry about him mauling a baby to death like I would with one of those literal murder machines, and I have never needed to put a muzzle on him for my or "his safety".
>spent something like $6000 unfucking him
Why? Just kill it
what else are you going to use the money for? feeding some homeless junkie that should have been taken out by natural selection and would have died ages ago in a lower tech society?
the dog was injured by no fault of their own. fucking carfags are a menace that nothing can adapt to without becoming significantly more intelligent and aggressive, enough to neutralize the threat before it hits the road. their malice defies reason. many of them speed up if they see an animal to reduce its chances of successfully dodging.
>what else are you going to use the money for?
Not collect taxes/donations for the humane society and let people keep their money
i thought the humane society was funded by donations and didnt recieve anything from the government
I'm not american so I didn't know how they got their money. I assumed it was either government support or donations. But still, no point in collecting donations for worthless causes
>Spend money on dogs instead of the homeless, or anything else
>Inb4 but it'll go to a moron crackhead
Most of the money that goes to shelters gets spent on pits too LMFAO
In china, the homeless are forced out of it. Being homeless is treated like a crime, you simply aren't allowed to be homeless, and families are pressured to take them back in even if they hate them and they are strongly pressured to get even the shittiest jobs and live in even the shittiest apartment. Treatment can be rough. When they get kicked back out by family enough times or simply keep leaving on their own they cease being acknowledged and you better not say they exist, because china has no homeless problem ok?
In the west, helping the homeless means respecting their right to be themselves while giving them free shit, and the homeless are actively opposed to living in civil society. It's ineffective. So yes, we don't want to help them. We could adopt the chinese system but the millions of failures would get uncovered by that "free speech" thing and people would complain about police brutality and muh right to do bla bla bla.
why would you ever help humans, especially humans that are too stupid to help themselves
we need less humans not more
because he is a good boi and he deserves to live, especially after everything he went through. He's a 10/10 dog, definitely worth every penny,
Only small dogs, I only trust dangerous dogs I know from puppies
>would you adopt an abused rescue dog?
I can't: i have two cats
If that thing hasn’t killed at least one living organism within that house since that photo was taken, it will soon.
It honestly all depends on the dog. Some dogs just need a little work to bounce back while others are so scared it's just best too put them down. It's a case by case basis so no one should give a sweeping statement on this
why do they spend so much time, money and effort trying to salvage an unsolvable trainwreck genetic dead end of a dog
firsties are too pampered and sheltered, if they ever had to worry about when their next meal is gonna be, this shit wouldnt happen
>Verification not required.
>clamp the dog's mouth shut
>"i have no mouth and i must bark" written in his eyes
>Wow the dog is so calm now he loves this!!!!!
Shitbulls are like everything else in this dying society. They're a thing that is noticeably, obviously, unquestionably wrong and evil, but have millions of NPC retards keeping them around and making them everyone else's problem.
Agreed. They're useless. They can't hunt, we have gun dogs for that. They can't herd, we have collies for that. They can't protect you, we have malinois and mastiffs for that. They can't pull a sled over a meaningful distance at any speed, all they can do is drag a stack of bricks 6 inches and take a nap. We have eurohounds for that.
Pitbulls, like cuckskies, are basically welfare dogs. They spend their entire life living at the expense of others.
It's sad they look so similar to other dogs. Real boarhounds get mistaken for pitbulls and discriminated against even though one is a useful dog and the other is a retarded dog"fighting" mutt.
Pic related would get called a pitbull 9/10 times. But pit mommies don't care about her - the useful dog, the hunting dog. They only care when you call their "staffy" a pitbull, because they need to change the term to "bully breeds" to technically unban their fur baby and continue pretending to have children.
Who would call that a pit?
Looks more like a beagle or a foxhound.
The same kind of retards that would use a pit for hunting and say a staffy isn't a pit because they think they can ignore BSL by changing words
They're on the right, they're on the left. They're everywhere. But the reality holds firm: pitbull refers to exactly 5 breeds and all of them are useless.
Isn't a pitbulls ability to hold good tho? Especially against boar? I see a lot of US IG accounts using em for that.
Do you mean American Staffordshire or the actual Staffordshire Bull Terrier?
You don't want your dog to hold for boar. The boar will inevitably kill a few dogs one hunt and it gets in the way of shooting the thing. You want the dogs to corner and intimidate the boar.
cornering requires way stricter breeding ie: poorfags can't afford a quality dog like that. you need a very intelligent and courageous animal.
holding is really simple. just breed dogs by dogfighting rules, since the winner is the dog that holds the longest. even if they are cowards and retards, if they are aggressive and want to bite they will do the job. although they might get heemed, and it's a poor idea if you want to hunt with an actual weapon instead of trying to wiggle a spear in there like a felon/caveman/rightless europeon serf.
Ah. All I've seen is dogs wearing vests, that bay OR hold and then boar is dispatched by the hunter (usually by a knife). Usually there's a dog holding each ear and then another going for limbs.
I've read about how modern Dogo Argentino are shit because they mostly bay now instead of holding. Is this true?
Dogo are too retarded to keep a boar at bay is the problem. They are primarily descended from a pitbull mix, not a quality hound.
>usually by a knife
And therein lies a big, big problem. Free men don't hunt with knives. And we don't settle for just one pig. Or a shitty holding dog that can only be used for one animal. Most of us prefer a dog that just tracks and flushes, for starters, and baying is as far as I'd have a dog go. A pitbull can't be sensibly used for deer, elk, wolf, yote, etc. Give me one blue lacy or redbone coonhound over any amount of pitbulls. I'm not some felon that thinks knives and spears are appropriate tools for hunting.
They literally can't even be companions because they always "just have something inexplicably" wrong with them and have a tendency to be unpredictably homicidal.
What's wrong with huskies?
They're useless dogs. They aren't the best sled dogs anymore, they aren't hunting dogs anymore, they have no purpose except screaming on youtube. Even pet collies can herd, but pet huskies can't do anything.
Real mushers used hound mutts now.
Hounds, shepherds and collies = peak dog
Not good enough to be pets, underperforming as sled dogs. They just look cute to normies and furries.
This, husky defenders are either furries or ancient viking paleo shit larpers
as pets, they are worthless
they do not obey
they do not recognize the alpha male in the household
they want too much attention
they make too much noise
they show too much initiative when a dogs purpose is to serve man
as sled dogs
they are just as disobedient as they are as pets and always act like they know better
they are slower and smaller than real sled dogs (hound and pointer mixes)
they are stupid and make "yipe yeeeelp" noises
a dogs purpose is to obey. a dog that does not obey is useless. full stop.
Rent free! Anyways, here's some wonderwall to calm your nerves before you die of an awooneurysm
>alpha male in the household
Stopped reading there
Why? Are you uncomfortable with the way pack mentality works?
That shit is pseudoscience even for wolves. It's not even true of actual wolves let alone dogs or people
a dog's purpose is to be a companion, not a slave.
Get help, you will hurt someone.
>a dogs purpose is to obey. a dog that does not obey is useless. full stop.
Yup. Dogs are symbiotic to man. A disobedient dog has no place in the world.
Agreed. If a dog needs to be told COME twice, you punish it. If it does not submit like it knows where its dinner comes from that mutt needs culled. A dog that does not obey is food for a dog that does.
>AAAAAAAAA YOU DUMBFUCK HOUND WHY WON'T YOU OBEY ME AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Sounds like you're just not up to the task of handling huskies
They're schizos. Intelligent, but unable to cope with that intelligence and end up causing mischief.
If pitbulls are morons, huskies are garden gnomes.
They're like psychiatric patients reincarnated as dogs.
Even small ratcatcher dogs can be good for tracking and pursuit
people on reddit use the word fuck. people on Wauf use the word fuck. coincidence? I think not. have a nice day.
Why does he wear the mask?
It would be extremely painful to pull it off
Literally for (you).
