Some dog people think that life in a sanctuary is worse than death for dogs. And the Vick dogs are proving things wrong once again to the animal advocate world. There's a video on the Best Friend's You Tube channel that's amazing - I've pasted it below - and it shows the Vick dogs who are at the Sanctuary in Utah - and a lot of them are destined to spend the rest of their lives there - actually having dog on dog fun - and out of cage, running around - just ballistically humungous loving FUN.
I wouldn't call what's in this video worse than death, would you?
Diane Jessup - for some reason is one of the USA's most respected pit bull advocates and trainers and who I dislike on many levels - she thinks it's okay to chain out dogs - which I won't get into here - has said on another blog -
"I would MUCH rather see that little pup euthanized then placed at the well funded “collector” (Best Friends/Dogtown) where it would rot, probably forever, in a pointless, ownerless, souless life like the poor Vick dogs. That might be fine for some generic dogs, but an American pit bull needs hard exercise, an owner and a life. Not life long boarding. And not by people so ignorant they think a dog who plays hard with a boomer ball has “PTSD” for gawd’s sake!"
That is just gross as far as I'm concerned.
Here's the video -
