|If you've been following the info in the links, these dogs were not "owner drop-offs"--they were confiscated after a raid on a property suspected of drug trafficking and dog fighting
Strangely though, the dogs were first put in the posession of and cared for by the Spca and/or the Buster Foundation, but were ordered back to Monroe County AC after several weeks and then ordered to be tested to determine by a court what to do with them.
Keep in mind, there was no direct physical evidence that these particular dogs were fought--they just were found on the property--in fact, the arresting authorities somehow missed these dogs until a neighbor complained days after the bust, that they thought there were dogs not being cared for on the property. Had it not been for the neighbor calling them in, the dogs would have likely starved or died of thirst.
The Buster Foundation and Spca found them to be normal, sociable dogs with good temperaments while in their care and have been fighting to save them.
I donated to the Buster Foundation to help with their court appeal and just received a lovely Thank You note from them the other day, saying they are still advocating for the Monroe County dogs.
Each of the dogs has a Facebook page as well.
Many experienced dog people have seen and handled the dogs prior to this video assessment and utterly disagree with these findings.
And THAT is the reason for the extra uproar of anti-pit bias in this case . . . .
