Why should we punish the dogs for the way they are being raised and trained? The image the general public has about Pit Bulls is based on media bias and pure myth. They are not the monsters the media paints. I’ve been around Pit Bulls long enough to know they are one of the sweetest breeds. Of course Pit Bulls have attacked people, but the same goes for all other breeds.
In this analysis paper I will analyze the credibility of the video and the author, how pathos, ethos, and logos are used for both the rhetoric and visual part, identify the audience, and how effective the video was to get their message across. The American Pit Bull Terriers’ image has changed drastically over time. The Pit Bull went from being America’s favorite breed to the most feared. Pit Bulls attract violent and abusive owners who use them for fighting and don’t provide the love and care a Pit Bull needs. According to a 2006 study from the Journal of Interpersonal Violence owners of dogs considered “vicious” like the Pit Bull were more likely to have criminal convictions of aggressive crimes, drugs, alcohol, domestic violence, and firearms.
Thesis The American Pit bull used to be viewed as Americas dog, but now many people have taken to the fear of this amazing breed, and this fear has lead to heart break for many pit bull lovers. There are just small things we can do to change the view of these dogs. Ethos Dogs are loved for their loyalty, variety, and abilities. Pit bulls are the greatest examples of these qualities, yet they are still the most feared and misunderstood dog breed. Pre-summary Seen as monsters because... Seen as pets because...
Of course we hear stories of pit bulls attacking people, but the same is true of all other breeds. When a dog of some other breed attacks someone it does not draw much media attention, but when it's a pit bull it's all over the news. This gives the public a false sense of security because it makes us forget about other dogs from different breeds that have a attacked and hurt people. B. This leads me to my topic, should pit bulls be banned?
The jaws of pit bulls have absolutely no unique locking mechanism and function entirely the same as every other dog breed. Another myth is that pit bulls attack more than any other breed and that makes them dangerous. I offer the following responses: First of all, pit bulls are one of the most popular breeds, so it makes sense that the frequency of attacks would correlate in such a manner. Secondly, pitbulls do not inherently attack more than any other breed. Pit bulls may attack often, but this may just be because they are trained to do so.
Exposure to violence can breed violence even in those who oppose it. In the story, Lord of the Flies that is exactly what happens to the characters. Ralph loses his composure, Jack turns into a blood crazed savage and Ralph becomes part of the demented hunters. The aggressive atmosphere that thrives on that heinous island conquered the good character of the boys. Jack was the first of the boys to show signs of aggression, then it turned on his hunters, and then it took control of Ralph.
She is the only dog i used for this study. She is a an American Pitbull Terrier. Many people describe pit bulls as aggressive, terrifying, or unfriendly. These adjectives commonly used to describe this breed are incorrect and stereotypical. This type of breed of dogs have a great deal of strength and muscle mass.
Another aspect that is interesting is the turn in behavior for the monster. Perhaps the best quote to represent this idea comes from the actualization of the monster to himself in front of Victor’s dead body “My heart was fashioned to be susceptible of love...it did not endure the violence of change without torture” showing how evil nature overcomes the good nature in human beings (Shelly, 158). Initially the monster is very amicable, however, due to continuous rejection, he seeks revenge upon all human beings. Is Shelly saying that even though even nature is good, evil eventually overcomes this good nature? Or Is Shelly saying that human nature is bad and full of rejection and isolation?
From previously in the noel, we know that Curley prides himself in being “handy” with his “glove on his left hand” and that this motif of hands represents strength and power, which Lennie robs of Curley of by beating him, prefiguring Lennie’s demise. In 1930s America, it was a ‘dog eat dog’ world portraying the brutal fight for jobs, represented by the animalistic simile of ‘like a terrier’, where Social Darwinism and individualism were common. The nature of this society was especially dangerous for characters ostracized due to their disabilities such as Lennie or Crooks, as the brutality of this culture led to only the fittest and most intelligent surviving. This individualism is why Curley in particular was suspicious of Lennie and George’s fraternal bond, insinuating an inappropriate relationship “oh, so it’s that way”, mocking the men, portraying Curley’s disrespective nature. George and Lennie’s unusual relationship is in contrast to the superlative “guys like us… are the loneliest in the world” referring to the nomadic lifestyles,
I’m here to set the record straight and show you it’s not the breed it’s the way they are raised. So the question is who should own this loyal breed, what rules need to be followed, and steps that should be taken to show that this breed can be rehabilitated. Let’s start with a little background information on the breed we call a “Pit Bull” also called the American Staffordshire terrier. The breed is originally used for baiting dogs in England. Back then they had the utmost respect from people and a lot of people in England owned a Staffordshire terrier.
