    "Animal rescue corps" stole 16 dogs from an innocent breeder and show-er of APBTs while he was out of state at a family member's funeral, and while they may not have been as well taken care of as normal under the temporary circumstances, they were well loved dogs. (being taken care of by someone else)

    Apparently having a tredmill to keep your dogs fit means you're a fighter.
    Apparently having Styptic (blood stop) powder means you're a fighter. (It's an important thing to have when you compete in WP in case a dog quicks it's own nail)
    And because these people are too ignorant to know what conformation and WP ribbons are. They literally claimed they were "fighting trophies".

    No scars. They were well fed. There were barrels full of food for them. They had water. They had shelters, though maybe not the most aesthetically pleasing, when you have 16 dogs who love chewing, you're not going to be buying them fancy dog houses.

    It's sad that when someone knows how to properly care for such a high drive and genetically DA breed, they "must be dog fighters".
    They reality is..

    They are kept on "thick" chains (thin ones oxidize) because they know the risk of these dogs getting loose.

    They are responsible owners, they refuse to put adults in a kennel they could climb out of.

    They don't leave them in the house while they're away because they know they will destroy things for fun and ingest things they shouldn't and likely hurt themselves.

    They know they are happiest outside, with their own individual chain spots where they don't have to interact with other dogs.

    His dogs were beautiful. Well conditioned for WP and conformation, not fighting dogs by any means.
    It's disgusting that this organization is asking for donations for this "cause".

    They are deleting comments and reviews from anyone that knows the truth. There are hundreds of people in the working and show dog community right now who are extremely angry over this.

    They are going to do more harm for this breeds' reputation by putting them in typical pet homes. That is not the life a true APBT needs. They need an owner who understands their type of drive, and who is willing to train them in proper sports to keep them fit and mentally stimulated. That's what they had, and they'll likely never have it again in their lives.
    These are the dogs that end up attacking their owners, or children, and other dogs. They need a safe outlet for their drive. They are not pets. And they are not bad dogs, either. But they are bad in the wrong hands.

    Pictures of the trophies and comment of person stating they were "fighting trophies". I can't help but laugh.
    Pictures of dogs in beautiful condition for sports, they are clearly taken off their chains to run and train regularly. One has it's own mattress. Empty bleach bottles indicate the puppy kennels and houses are disinfected regularly. These are the worst pictures they have, and they're not even that bad.

    They took the dogs with no proof of fighting. And I don't honestly believe this is even neglect. They have shelter, food, water, and are well exercised.
    "Rescues" like this are the scum of the earth. Stealing dogs. Taking donations for the "case", and most likely re homing the dogs for a price.

    This is where I ask myself, where does innocent until proven guilty come into play? Ruining peoples reputation and life over a 'maybe' or 'probably' when those are just opinions without proof.

    Even scars aren't proof, a dog can get scars from an accidental scuffle, of which is more likely to happen when owning multiple DA dogs, so I don't blame someone for keeping medical supplies just in case.

    I take it you have never been in too much trouble with the law before. The saying innocent until proven guilty is just a fairy tail, you are actually guilty until you can prove your innocent and you are tried, judged and sentenced in the media and public long before you ever see a courtroom. The sad reality of our justice system. Especially if it involves animals.

    I thought the whole thing was kind of bizarre.there were multiple posts by different people then ,like 1.

    both dogs pictured were well feed. i saw no scaring.Hell my dogs have a lot more visible scars just from being dogs. I saw none on the face legs or chest.
    makes you wonder how they got access to the property ? maybe there is a limit to the number of dogs you can have there ? And if those were the two worst dogs,I will just shake my head. i`m just not seeing abuse.

    chains will always be a sore point to many.different areas and different people manage there dogs differently. Look at sled dogs.

    Bleach bottles ? who knows if they disinfect there kennels or just have a bleach injector for there well ? wear a lot of white clothes ? when we were on well water we used it by the case because of the bacteria count in the water.

    What were they thinking the bleach was for?

    I have to put diluted concentrated bleach on Tonka's skin.

    In the video they took off the collar on the GSD and rubbed his neck like it was so painful and sore THERE WASN'T EVEN AN INDENT. My GSD would get and indent in his fur if he wore a collar solid for a few days. If that dog had been on a chain constantly for weeks or months then it would have shown a lot more than that. Likely that dog wasn't even regularly chained but was for the added protection while the owner was away.

    All this does is discourage people from owning an APBT NOT for the purpose of fighting, all that will be left if they keep taking dogs from responsible owners is the people truly committing crimes.

    After their dumbass comments that the trophies and ribbons from ADBA shows were awards for dog fighting the ADBA did get their lawyers involved. The pics and comments were taken down and a statement made how they intended no harm to the company or any of it's customers. What a load of horse shit.
