Are these the actions of a ferocious dog?
A Pit Bull / Boxer cross would be listed in the dangerous dog category by many. But Angel (appropriately named) a 2 year old Pit Bull / Boxer cross from theNevada Humane Society’s shelter in Reno showed that generalizations should not be applied in the animal kingdom either.
Frank Gomez and his 9-year-old stepson, Joel Fontes were the volunteers taking Angel for a walk when the divine dog would not walk past some bushes. Despite the heat Angel became dogmatic about investigating the bushes.
Gomez, forced to investigate, discovered 6 kittens in a box. The 3 week old kittens had been abandoned and were in a state of hunger and fear.
One of the orange tabby kittens managed to escape before the shelter staff were able to get to the scene (fortunately the rescuers knew who call). Even in its hysterical state the abandoned kitten was no match for its angelic saviour, as Angel was able to track it down for Gomez to safely hand it over to the shelter staff.
Are all Pit Bulls ferocious? Angel proves this not to be case, despite obviously not having the best of upbringings being in a shelter at 2 years of age.
