Staffordshire Bull Terriers Should All Be Banned
Note: This is a parody. Please read in its entirety before deciding which reaction you’d like to have.
Lawmakers say bull terriers are quite fierce and pose danger to society.
So they say we should ban them.
Why do they say that?
Because of what they’ve seen on TV or read in the newspaper.
But what about kitchen knives, golf clubs, and baseball bats?
They’ve been used in crimes before, so let’s ban them all too.
… and while at it, why don’t we ban smiling, laughing, flowers, music, and anything beautiful.
And Mr.Lawmaker, you don’t know this but monkeys, cats, and squirrels are also about to wage a war on us humans.
See? Here’s the proof:
As a conclusion, we should ban all animal with fur on them.
Let’s face it. Bull terriers don’t have a good reputation.
Why? Because of the media and pictures like this:
And as a result, bull terriers are constantly under attack by the media.
In fact, the media has portrayed this dog breed to be so evil that even lawmakers have tried to ban them.
Of course, the main stream media won’t cover stories where these “vicious” bull terriers actually do opposite: be cuddly and help people.
Staffordshire bull terriers, also known as Staffies, share the same bad rep.
According to Wikipedia:
Due to its breeding, the modern dog is known for its character of indomitable courage, high intelligence, and tenacity.
This, coupled with its affection for its friends, its off-duty quietness and trustworthy stability, make it a foremost all-purpose dog.
It has been said that “No breed is more loving with its family”.
It is the only breed to have the words ‘totally reliable’ in its breed standard
Yet, the the media (in UK) has practically declared war on the portrayal of these dogs:
Since the UK Dangerous Dogs Act made it illegal to own breeds such as the pit bull terrier, the press have reported many cases of attacks by Staffordshire Bull Terriers or dogs described as a “Staffordshire bull terrier cross” on children, adults and family pets.
When there is a dog attack and it involves a Staffie, what’s the image that the media shows?
That behavior represents (probably) less than 1% of the time, if it does ever occur.
SO why won’t the media show how they are the other 99% of the time? Pictures like these:
Very simple: RATINGS.
Media companies make money from advertising. In another words, more viewers/attention = more money.
And what better way to get attention than to spread FEAR.
This is NOT advancing the human civilization.
This is NOT what a humane society would do OR tolerate.
That’s not how PawshPal operates.
Instead, PawshPal would like to recognize a dog breed that has been misunderstood and cast aside by the society as the modern “Frankenstein”.
Here’s an excellent video clip that shows how these Staffies REALLY are.
