Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook
Poppy with a foster pup.

I DON'T WANT A PIT DOG....said someone recently. She adopted what looked to be a lab mix. But Shelters have a tendency to put pit mix on many and on her paperwork when she got home, that is what it said. She got upset. She was ready to take it back. The thing is, unless you do a DNA test, you do not know what breed they are! The good news is that she decided to give the dog a chance and now she is totally in love with him. In December 2013, NCAF has started calling the Nash County Animal Control Shelter dogs "All American Shelter Dog." Now many Shelters do! What is in a name, a breed? There are many misconceptions. Does it really matter? Seems like the intake cards say pit mix a lot, even when obviously it isn't! We want no labels! My biggest dog was adopted by me after I gave up on finding someone that wasn't scared of him or just wanted to use him as a "junkyard" type of dog. They looked at his scars, assumed he was mean. We did have his DNA done and he is mostly an American Staffordshire Terrier, one of those "types." He helps puppy and kitten sit, adores the babies even when they are biting on him. My smallest dog, a Pomeranian, bosses him around. So look into their eyes and see their souls. Breeds are no more than colors or shapes, just like with people. Put aside perceptions and just fall in love, like I have. Thanks for caring!
