Can a Pit Bull Once Used For Dog Fighting Ever Be Truly Rehabilitated?

Posted on: January 27th, 2014       Attorney Thomas Newell

A January 17, 2014 pit bull attack in Pittsburgh, PA brought to the spotlight a serious question – what can be safely done with pit bulls rescued from a dog fighting ring?  As reported by KDKA TV, a 4 year-old pit bull escaped thru the front door of his new owner’s home as the man was retrieving his mail.


The unleashed pit bull attacked a pit bull of a couple who were following the PA Dog Law. Their dog was on a leash.  Unfortunately, it sustained some facial injuries.  The police had to taser the unleashed pit bull.  Its unapologetic owner stated:  “This dog couldn’t be more friendlier, affectionate & loyal.”
