    Thousands of Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mix dogs from the NYACC right in the very city she lives and works in, are saved from certain death every year Thanks to many people who cross post them and rescues that pull them everyday the euth list comes out.. Many going to Loving Homes of first time Fosters and or Adopters! I am devastated at the amount of Pit Bull type breeds that will be killed because this uneducated information was put out on national TV yesterday morning as it is certainly going to make first time fosters and adopters hesitate to take these dogs in. I Pray that Kelly does some Serious Damage Control or she will have cost the lives of so many of them to come. It’s so sad to me that she has no clue what is going on in her own City when it comes to dogs being killed in the shelters within  NYC. I sincerely hope her and the executives of Live, do the right thing to right this wrong!!

    We are trying to gain support to have Libby Sherrill from @BeyondTheMyth be a guest on the show so @KellyRipa can be educated along with the audience. Please help us spread the word!

    Kelly Ripa is an idiot and shouldn’t be able to speak on anything. She just set back Pit Bull Rescues years! Her ignorance about the breed (and people too apparently), has made it virtually impossible to give this wonderful breed a break from death row. Good job, Kelly!

      Calling her names will do nothing but put her on the defensive, if you truly  love the breed, then raise yourself over her ignorance and help educate her please. Belittling people will get us nowhere and sometimes it is better to swallow your words to help the greater good. When people respond in a negative way, it will only create more negative attention, please keep this in mind.

    Please let us refrain from name calling, ignorance is from not obtaining facts, it has nothing to do with anything else. I personally do not own a pittie, but I do own a Boxer, did you know they said the same thing about Boxers,Rottweilers and so many other “stocky” dogs as I call them. They are built this way from evolution and what they LOVE to do, protect their family and to look as beautiful as possible, their temperament  is based on how an animal is raised, just because a dog is small does not mean it is not vicious it only means that the dog is so small it can inflict very little harm, therefor they go unnoticed as a so called vicious breed.  If anyone one person does responsible research and understands the difference in how they report so called attacks in an area, they will see the straight facts that Pitt-bulls are not even close to being a “vicious” breed.
     
    I’m not sure what else to say, other than  this: Sometimes it is better to remain thought a fool than to open your mouth and confirm it.                                                           
     
     
    With that being said, I truly  hope Ms. Rippa will re-think her words and if we all remain RESPECTFUL when we comment maybe she will investigate further for herself.

      I should also mention that I was mauled by a German Shepard, on my face at that, I was 5, it required severe extensive  plastic surgery and unexplainable pain, not to mention I almost lost not just sight in my left eye but my eye itself. However they are one of Law Enforcements main breeds to do the work of the “good guys”. I’m a pretty hardcore cold-hearted bitch to be blunt but you do NOT see me claiming the breed is bad. Only the people who raised the dog to not like children are responsible, not the dog itself, it is only doing what it is trained to do. They should not be made out to be a horrible breed, but some of their so called owners should be, maybe we can focus on that instead.

    Kelly Ripa calling Pit type dogs dangerous is as stupid as if we were to stereotype her cohost because he is black like Michael Vick so he MUST be a dog fighter.  It’s racist and ignorant.

    We have three dogs; a pit mix, a shepherd and a boarder collie mix. Guess which one I can’t trust when non-household members are around? Hint, it’s neither of the dogs considered to be “dangerous” breeds. There is no such thing as a bad dog, only bad people who create dangerous dogs through mistreatment (which is what happened to our boarder-collie before we adopted her). Everyone should know this by now, but sadly too many feed into the notion that some breeds are just “bad”.

  8. Thank you for stimulating my brain with this bright and observant post.

  9. You also have the choice of international English speaking

    One thing to remember when purchasing Medicare supplement
    insurance as well as any other health insurance plan is that the amount you
    pay is more than just the monthly premium. Divorce does not deny you of
    this benefit, read on to find out more about this.

  16. The difference in premiums might have to do with the pricing or rating method used by the
    insurance company. A catastrophic, high deductible, health insurance policy is more
    likely to allow linkage to a Health Savings
    Account (HSA), which is worth looking into, as it can provide significant tax advantages.
    This means that you and your family will be subjected to medical underwriting, and if accepted could receive rate increases for
    smoking, obesity, or other issues that could be considered
    risks to your health.

    Most of the times, the bicycle is covered under the home
    insurance or family insurance policies and even
    the bicycles used by the tenant in a rented house may have been
    covered under the landlord’s insurance plan. If the building is available for lease, the interest is deductible
    on the Schedule E, as a rental property expense.
