Pitbull rescue

Recommended Posts

Guest Ethan

I was wondering if anyone knows of a pitbull rescue centre in Perth?

 

Ive started to become really fond of these dogs recently and would like to volunteer when i get there

 

Any ideas

 

PS If this is the wrong forum can the admin move it to correct one..

You're crazy! They don't even let normal decent human beings into the country let alone dangerous dogs!!! Seriously, dogs aren't as big news in WA, certainly not where I live (south Perth). I've only seen about three in a month... But I might be wrong!

As the Pitbull is a restricted breed in WA, you're unlikely to encounter any. They can't be imported and existing owners (while able to keep them) had to have the dogs sterilised (along with a host of other conditions - permits, muzzling etc) when they were placed on the restricted breeds list. As this happened at least 10 years ago and the life expectancy is only twelve years, in all likelihood, there'll be no pitbulls around any more.

Hi Ethan

 

I like you, would love to own a pitbull..they are a great breed. I am looking to do volunteer work here in Perth. I have found several animal rescues, the RSPCA in Malaga, a dog rescue in Shenton and another in Gosnells. There are other breed specifi rescue organisations here too...def not pitbulls tho unfortunately. I was at the dog beach in Fremantle the other day and saw loads of dogs having fun. We are hoping to do foster care once we are settled.

Good Luck!

Thanks guys

 

Although pit's may be illegal, they will be around. Some come under American staff's which I dont think are illegal and telling the difference is pretty hard.

 

Im sure rots and other dogs that get abused for fighting have rescue centres, perhaps easier to find when i get there

I have seen many pit bulls around, especially in Cannington - Canning Vale area, my partner and I have had many pit bulls, all of them rescued. We haven't owned any since living in WA, but when we return to NZ we'll definitely get back to having more pitties. We lived on a golf course and had three bitches - all with their own characters and each as caring as any dog would be having responsible owners. Keep looking Ethan - you will find them.

Are you serious?

 

Also these dogs are illegal in WA

They are not illegal they are a ristricted breed meaning they have conditions to obey by but yes its illegal to breed them as its part of their conditions to be neutered but in saying that every am staff has pitbull dna thats why they look so much alike and are hard to really know them apart they are very close to the same blood lines pits are beautiful ive only ever owned pits my mates kelpie is more aggressive then my pit my boy is an absolute gem best money ive ever spent everyone has their own opinions my parents were the same until my father got really sick n my pit was the only one to detect it the loyalty the love the patience he had for my dad was unbelievable when brang my boy home my parents just fell inlove with him now i cant get him back ? its just really sad when this breed is judged like this when are people gonna start blaming the uneducated poor excuse for a human at the other end of the lesh rather then this beautiful breed... im not judging you i just wish they were given the chance at the end of the day every breed of dog has the potential to me aggressive it in there nature thats why they need to be trained but in saying that breeding these days have been focused on looks rather then health and temperment its really sad...
