I first saw the story of Oogy on Pinterest. I wasn’t sure it it was true, or if it was just one of those fake stories that you see on the internet all the time, so I did some research. It turns out, Oogy’s story is real.
If you haven’t heard the story of Lennox, you need to read this article. He was a dog who got put to sleep because he resembled a pit bull. Pit bulls are illegal in Ireland. Well, Oogy’s story is even more heart wrenching.
Oogy was only ten weeks old and weighed about twenty pounds when he was used as a bait dog for pit bulls. Most of the left side of his face, including his entire ear, was torn off. You can read more about Oggy here.
My reason in writing this post is only to say that pit bulls have a bad name, but not all of them are bad. Your animal is a reflection of how you raise them. All dogs have 42 teeth and any dog can be dangerous in the wrong hands.
