The encounter with the Pit Bull
The Pit Bull is a well-known breed of dog known for being loyal and protective of its owner. However, this loyalty can also be misinterpreted as aggression. Many Pit Bulls are amiable and loving dogs who happen to have some protective instincts.
Here are five real stories about Pit Bulls protecting their owners:
1. Gloria was cleaning out her basement when she came across a group of four Pit Bulls chained to the wall. She didn’t know what to do, but the dogs were clearly in danger. Gloria managed to free the dogs and took them home with her. The next day, one of the Pit bulls bit someone else who was trying to break into Gloria’s home!
2. Kelly was working at her computer when two men approached her and started arguing with her. Kelly grabbed her purse and ran out the door, leaving her laptop behind. Her pit bull, Bandit, chased after the men and attacked them both!
3. Jamie was out running errands one day when a man approached her on a bike asking for money. When Jamie refused, the man pulled out a knife and started attacking her. Her pit bull, Diesel, came running towards him and scared him off!
4. Jerry was walking his dog one day when he came across two men fighting on the side of the road. Without thinking any further, Jerry rushed over to help fight off the attackers himself!
The encounter with the police
The encounter with the police can be a scary experience for any dog owner, but it’s incredibly daunting for those who own pit bulls. Pit bulls are often considered aggressive animals, and many people believe they will attack police officers if given the opportunity. However, this is not always the case.
Studies have shown that pit bulls are less likely than other breeds of dogs to attack law enforcement personnel. This is likely due to their history as working dogs. Pit bulls were originally bred in England as brutal combatants used on farms and in bullfighting arenas. Because of this background, they are trained to recognize and avoid threats from a young age.
This training can sometimes be beneficial regarding interactions with police officers. When a pit bull knows that law enforcement is a legitimate authority figure, it may be less likely to aggress them in response to an interaction. In addition, many law enforcement agencies now use pit bulls specifically for police work, giving them even more credibility when interacting with these animals.
