KELLY resting after her big day with the PAWS executive director and professional bleeding heart MELISSA LEVY.
philly last week a 6 yr old, overweight pit bull mix named KELLY, SOMEHOW slipped her leash while being walked by a PAWS rescue angel and attacked a carriage horse. the justification for KELLY'S normal pit bull behavior has taken a few turns. first she was spooked by the traffic, then she was spooked by the horse. now her updated petfinder profile states "she does not like horses" or cats but she LOVES children and the PAWS shelter not only recommends KELLY to potential adopters with children, KELLY is the shelter staff's first choice when they need a dog for kids to pet! MELISSA LEVY claims KELLY is really a "sweetheart with a tough past" and this was an "isolated incident". LEVY is quick to point out that the bull baiter didn't redirect her explosive aggression towards any humans. i'm sure there would be a whole other set of excuses if that was the case. really melissa, an isolated incident? there is some interesting chatter in the comment sections. one concerned citizen wrote: "The same dog was in the carriage stands a few days ago being walked by a PAWS volunteer. She was leaping at the horses at the end of her leash. OK, so maybe she was trying to play, or maybe she was trying to attack, but she certainly wasn't SCARED of them. Heck, the Daily News/Inquirer story says she has been at PAWS for TWO MONTHS. This is not the first time she's seen carriage horses, nor been out and about in the busy and bustling Old City environment." and it sounds like the problem isn't just with THIS pit bull, "I'm all for rehabilitating fixable strays, but I've seen these PAWS folks out many times in the Center City squares showing off these dogs (mostly pits). Often when I've approached, with or without my dog, the PAWS handler has either warned me off completely or warned me to be careful. One of them said she was afraid of the dog biting a person or dog and getting another strike against him." LEVY also plays up the dog's abusive past which i believe is completely fabricated. the tear jerker story goes like this: someone threw an overweight 6 yr old pit dog out of a moving car in april. fellow bleeding hearts eat this shit up, it brings in the $$$. a good samaritan saw it and rescued the dog. who in their right believes that people who treat dogs like trash, would OVERfeed their dog? whatever KELLY'S past, the PAWS rescue angels are more determined than ever to keep this frankenmauler alive. (even pitbull-chat had the sense to remove KELLY from their listing of adoptable dogs.) KELLY has been languishing in the the no kill shelter for 2 months, given her new celebrity status, she will probably incite a bidding war. KELLY'S profile now states "If you are interested in adopting her, please stop by the shelter to fill out an application and meet this very special girl!" this special girl should have been lobotomized by that carriage horse.
yet more nonsense from another B12 starved rescue angel:
"She just got really scared," said Allison Homer, 24. "She's had a rough life, and she gets easily rattled." how many dogs have you had that run TOWARDS their object of fear? and IF the dog was truly scared, that's called panic without recovery and KELLY would fail the ATTS. oh wait a minute, if the ATTS doesn't care about other dogs, they surely don't care about horses.

i wonder if PAWS' partner in crime has anything to do with PAWS unwillingness to give this frankenmauler a dirt nap? i wonder if PAWS' partner in crime has anything to with the other 12 pit bulls, and the great dane x, bullmastiff, boxer x or the dogue de bordeaux that they have available?
i wonder how many labs, chihuahuas and collies no kill PAWS had to turn to away to make room for the apple of JANE'S eye?
