From BADRAP:



"Their personalities are a mixed bag. We have the timid/cowering dog, the pushy/optimistic dog, the easily aroused dog and the low key love bunny. We have every range of dog tolerance level from been-there-done-that dog aggressive to the please-be-my-pal dog social. We have highly adoptable, needs some work, and sadly damaged compassion hold status. As always - individuals, individuals."

Not all fight-bust dogs can be saved. But all deserve a change to be evaluated.

Great posting! A rescue I volunteer with in VA has called about trying to help as well and will hopefully be able to help some way though we could only take 1 of 2 of the dogs.

Here in Dearborn, Mi it's not pit bulls but chihuahuas that need homes. Our big story the past few days is of a 56 yr old man who hoarded everything inside his home. So far authorities have found 104 chis and that was only on the main floor. Today they will be checking the upstairs and the basement as they still hear dogs barking. The man is currently in hospital for evaluation. The house is stacked floor to ceiling wall to wall with debris. People have come forward with food, money and are signing up to adopt.

Meanwhile, Michael Vick is in line to get his old job back . . . . . . . . . .

Let's be realistic here. Also from the WaPo article about the 10 dogs sent to BR:



"four who were not as well socialized will be euthanized after a few days or weeks in a "compassion hold" in a foster home."

*Thank you* Christie.



The HSUS has been a motivated rescue partner since their policy change. Not only for this case, but for several lesser known cases that have come up since the meeting in Vegas. The days of blaming them for blocking rescue efforts are over. We have new obstacles now -- state laws that work against the victims, the resistance of under-educated DAs and judges, (who have the ultimate veto power in saving the dogs) - and, as always, the lack of foster homes in willing rescue groups. Many miles before we can sleep.

Thank YOU, Donna.



Hello, black helicopter folks. Are you reading?



Then read this.



We're telling you: Something's going on internally at the HSUS.



Or hey ... just keep your fingers in your ears and LaLaLa that sweet HSUS hate you love so much. It's so much easier to keep on doing than to change -- or acknowledge change.

We also will be helping with this case when the gag order is off.

Meant to say when the time is right, due process etc. Oops.
