What The BSL Doesnt want you to see
American Pit Bull Terrier...An American Hero
Dozer ( on one of these pictures you can see a Mickey Mouse Patch on his side)
Hello there my name is Rose and this is Dozer an American Pit Bull Terrier. Dozer is a Medical Alert Service Dog and he is an extrodinary dog. I rescued him as puppy You see, he was chained to a black berry bush in the pouring rain. He had been beaten and starved. You could count almost every bone in his body and see the bruises all over him. He was so weak he could barely lift his own head to even look around and see what was going on.
I took him in and everyone told me this little puppy was going to die and I should take him and have him put to sleep to end his suffering. But I could not do this to him. I could see something in his eyes that told me not only was he going to make it but he was going to be special.
So I stayed with him 24 hours a day, I squeezed water into his mouth with a wash cloth to get liquids into him and I nursed him back to health little by little. And slowly he reagined his health and became stronger and bigger. Before I knew it I had a healthy and happy Pit Bull on my hands.
Dozer was the greatest thing to happen to me and during his recovery we bonded like you could not imagine. I could not give this dog up. You see I have done animal rescue for about 15 years now and I was use to giving up the animals I rescue after they are better and ready to be rehomed, but I could part with Dozer. We had become one.
A couple of years later an incident happened in my life that caused a head injury. And I developed a seizure disorder. Dozer seem to know that my seizures were not a natural thing for me to have and responded to each and every one of them. And it didn't take him long before he was able to tell before I would have a seizure.
I took all the neccessarry steps to find out if he was truly alerting me to my seizures and discovered that he indeed was, and he was then trained to be a Certified Service Dog.
Now Dozer works as my Medical Alert Service Dog and can give me a 15-45 minute warning before I have a seizure. He can now also tell me when my blood pressure is getting too high or when I am about to have an asthma attack.
He will go and get assistance if I do come out of my seizure ok and is trained to help me with balance control as well. ( he is big enough and strong stong enough to catch me when I loose my balance)
Without Dozer in my life I would be afraid to leave my house, for fear of having a seizure and hurting myself. ( I once fell and broke a tooth from having a seizure and hitting a small concrete pole at a park) But with Dozer able to go everywhere I go I am able to live my life without fear of just dropping.
If the BSL has it way Pitt Bulls and Rotties will not be able to prove themselves worthy for this type of work. And they are great for it. I mean after all they are big enough to pull a wheel chair, or assist you in getting up and walking if needed. They are great for police work and they are so very loyal.
Well I just wanted to tell you a little bit about Dozer and how wonderful he is. I hope these videos show you a little bit on how wrong the BSL is about this beloved breed. And the good that they really can do. If I can change even one persons view on a Pit Bull then I will feel better.
Thank you for taking the time to read my Hub and watch these videos.
