Jeff is available at Hollow Creek Farm Equine and Canine Rescue in Enoree, SC:
Today is National Dog Fighting Awareness Day and I sure hope we all do our part to help end this evil practice. When you hear the words “dog fighting” lots of us will immediately think of Michael Vick, someone whom we will never forgive for the terrible things he has done to dogs. However, there are many, many more evil humans like him out there.
We live in South Carolina, and trust me, the anti-dog fighting laws here are a real joke. The punishment is a $5000 fine OR 5 years in prison. The word OR is the key word…and remember, the devil is in the details. The $5000 and 5 years is for a conviction on a third offense. First time offenders are only subject to a $500 fine OR 6 months in jail. Usually they plea bargain this away. We are not surprised by this since we live here. Honestly, the law is a joke and so are our South Carolina legislators. They like to talk a good game, but they are all talk and no action.
We need to all help to stop this madness and insist that mandatory punishment be something designed to actually punish the offenders and send a strong message that this kind of activity will not be tolerated, ever!
That brings me to Jeff, remember Jeff? He is the wonderful and most handsome Pittie at the top of this post. In case you’ve forgotten, here he is again.
Here’s what the rescue has to say about handsome Jeff:
Jeff is a sweet and submissive young boy. He gets along very well with our dogs here and has no issues at all being handled. He is learning basic leash manners, he is crate trained, housebroke, and has good manners. He is missing an ear, don’t tell him that because he really could care less. He is heartworm negative, neutered, and up to date on all vaccinations. He would be perfect for just about any situation.
