|I haven't seen the dog labelled as a pit bull not once. In fact, most of the people I saw commenting on the article I had read agreed that the dog was not at fault. Of course, I know it would have been different if it had been a pit bull, but nevertheless...
What makes this whole situation sad is that it could have been entirely avoided. I kept thinking about my dogs and what I would have done. If it had been any of my dogs, they wouldn't have been there in the first place. They would have been at home, sleeping comfortably in their crates for at least a week. Poor dog had just been though a traumatic experience. As if that wasn't stressful enough, here comes an anchor shoving her face in his face after he'd already been oh'd and aw'd over by many other strangers.
ETA: Oops, misread your post, Sanka! Rereading it, I agree. If the dog had been a stray or if the owner hadn't known his breed, he most likely would have been labelled "pit bull". Likely just to get media attention, as well.
