at a street festival yesterday, an ugly mutant pit fighter named PARROT attacked a passing poodle. three people were bitten trying to break up the fight. the pit dog was appropriately shot by police. PARROT was the property of lucky dog animal rescue but was currently in foster care. you can see his petfinder profile here. let me know when this link goes dead so i can upload the pdf in its place. note the lack of warning about other dogs and the clear pit bull designation. in the washington post, PARROT is being passed off as another fighting dog, a shar-pei mix. the foster nutter must have been in shock.
Aaron Block, 25, of Dupont Circle said he was walking his 2-year-old Shar-Pei mix, Parrot, up 18th Street when the dog suddenly turned around and bit a poodle that was passing by.
here's the real kicker, luckydoganimalrescue had a table set up at the street festival and was trying to pimp this wiggle butt off on the festival attendees!
according to PARROT'S petfinder page, "His idea of saying hello is affectionately running up and butting his head into you!" and if you are a snack sized poodle, HIS TEETH! PARROT is " very tolerant and full of character!" apparently not so tolerant of people trying to lead him away from his poodle entree. PARROT is "very strong and still working on his leash manners". woops, not anymore! although the petfinder description doesn't prohibit kids, they are pimping this "perfect, pint-sized playmate" to a "bachelor" or "young couple". PARROT was a bargain at $280!
VICTIM STATEMENT: Sushi, the poodle-bichon mix attempted to sniff the pit fighter as they passed each other and PARROT took offense. the pit nutters have been claiming there was no blood or injuries. Sushi suffered two broken bones and a large gash. he may need surgery.
