Local San Francisco media seems to cover only bad news about pit bulls. For every incident, local media drowns the public with story after story over the same tragic incident. Dogs like Pollo in Santa Rosa, California's Sonoma County ACC are the ones who suffer.
Pollo is a shy, sweet and mellow boy who looks to be a Dogo Argentino mix. He is very special. He's been at the shelter for a while and although the shelter is committed to this wonderful dog, he's beginning to show the stresses of being kenneled.
Pollo is a wonderful dog who deserves a wonderful family. He needs to have his own person to love and to love him back. According to staff, he is one special dog and so special, the shelter called us yesterday to ask for help.
Dog lovers and pit bulls are living in a hopeless situation with ad nauseum nasty stories and never a positive piece. Recently, former death row pit bulls and their proud owners participated in a walk to help homeless pets. Not one bay area reporter showed up to celebrate this wonderful story.
Rarely, if ever, does the bay area news take a second to cover a happy story.
The American Pit Bull Examiner provides a voice for those like Pollo and the few shelters like Sonoma County who are trying to beat insurmountable odds.
Please do not let Pollo die. Surely there is one bay area person who will see this special dog and open up their heart and home.
It is time for a change.
Doglandia is a new concept which will become a reality in the new future. Doglandia will be a holistic dog center in the bay area which will address backyard breeding the huge numbers of pit bulls and other animals dying in the bay area. Until then, Pollo needs help. We can change the world, one dog at a time beginning with Pollo.
