Profile in Cowardice

I do not know his/her name and I have never seen him/her that I know of. Whoever used THIS dog, henceforth known as George, as a bait dog and then dumped him out in the country is more of a coward than anyone that I can think of.





George (named after General George Patton who owned a bull terrier named Willie) has been checked by the vet and is in pretty good shape. Should no one claim him, I am going to have a new yard dog. Everyone is getting along pretty well so far as you can see from this very boring (and isn't that a good thing?) video.





George showed up yesterday and, once Buddy escaped from the yard, he and Buddy played together very nicely. He is a bull terrier, about 1 1/2 years old, and un-neutered. He is very affectionate and friendly and lovable and I hope there is a special circle of hell for folks who abandon dogs. I'm pretty sure there is.





More to follow, I am sure.

I watched a documentary on dog fighting a couple of nights ago, I can't remember the last time I was so angry.

you are so good, sandy, to rescue this nice guy!

At least he found his way to your loving home! :)

At least he knew which house would be a home. Good for you for helping him. I'm just so glad he has a good disposition. Normally they have to destroy dogs like him for aggression. He's a cutey. And, you know I love his name!

Thanks for all of your kind comments.

WT: After seeing what the customs guys did to your kokopelli, I think I'll keep Buddy on this side of the pond.

Laurie: I was gonna name the dog Henry but the vet reminded me of Patton's dog. Since I couldn't see myself yelling, "Here, Willie, Willie" I went with George.

Irish CoffeeHouse: I'm beginning to think that the dogs have somehow marked my house much like the hoboes did during the Great Depression when they found a home with friendly folks.

AFF: Bull terriers are not pits. They are very prevalent in the UK as family dogs, much like labs and retrievers are here. The original version of "The Incredible Journey" featured a bull terrier. Great movie if you can find it.

bull terriers are great, calm dogs. we know a couple that has two, named John and Ann. which always makes us laugh, because our best friends are named John and Ann.

so we call bull terriers "the john-and-ann dogs."

George is one good looking dog and I'm glad that he was lucky enough to find his way to you, he's obviously in a much happier place now, with lots of buddies.

I promise that isn't Ozzy.

Though I've been tempted. ;)

Kidding.

All of our dogs have been accidental and they have been wonderful. I'm sure that if no one claims George, he will be a wonderful addition to your canine family!
