When Forth Worth Police received a call about an aggressive Pit Bull on the loose last night in the West Division of Fort Worth, Texas, they dispatched to the scene with very little information and not sure what to expect.
What they found wasn’t an aggressive dog at all, just a friendly family dog who’d somehow gotten lost.
When police arrived, the dog walked right up to responding officers looking for love and attention. Thankfully, the officers responded to the approaching Pit Bull appropriately, evaluated his body language and quickly realized he was not a threat.
Police took the dog to a local 24-hour emergency veterinarian who scanned and found a microchip and were able to contact the dog’s owner and reunite their family member.

I HAVE 2 PITS AND THEY R JUST BIG BABIES THEY SLEEP IN MY BED AND R HOUSE DOGS THEY PROTECT THERE TERRITORY ENOUGH THAT IF U COME TO MY HOME IM GONNA KNOW SOMEONE UNFAMILIAR IS HERE BUT WHEN WE LET THEM KNOW ITS OK THEY ARE OK A DOG HAS WAYS OF LETTING U KNOW IF THEY ARE AGRESSIVE OR CALMN I THINK WITH AS MANY ARTICLES AS IVE BEEN READIN ABOUT OFFICERS KILLIN PIT BULLS THEY NEED TO RETHINK THINGS A LITTLE BETTER HERE WE HAVE SOMEONE THAT DEALS WITH THIS KIND OF PROBLEM WHO KNOWS THE SIGNS OF WHEN A DOG IS AGGRESSIVE ITS NOT ALWAYS THE PIT BREED ACTUALLY A PERSON IS MORE LIKELY TO ENCOUNTER AGGRESIVENESS FROM MIXED BREEDS THAN ANY OTHER DOG
I’ve been involved in rescue for 33 years. I’ve gone under trailers, into crawl spaces, and thick brush to bring out frightened and injured dogs.
I have bite scars on both arms from wrists to elbows because I’ve been bitten by just about every breed, mixed breed, and Heinz 57 that you can name…but I’ve never been bitten by an American Pit Bull Terrier. Never.
See? They don’t shoot well behaved dogs. If we cull the vicious ones, then just the nice ones you all have left will scoop up their former repuation and toss it over the wall.
I live in the next city over(Arlington)and I have two wonderful bro/sis pit bulls. I want to thanks these hero policemen who knew what that dog was saying to them with his body language. Many LEOs would have gunned him down because they didn’t, or they couldn’t, see what he was saying.
I can’t thank those officers enough for not taking his life.
