I´ve recently found out about dog racism (sorry, can´t find other words to describe that happening). Here comes the article from norwegian newspaper Aftenposten , which shocked me and upset me a lot.
Short about the story.
Pitbull Majlo came with its family from Sweden to Norway 2 years ago. The owner of the dog, Monia Johansson, didn´t know that pitbull race was forbidden in Norway.
Suddenly in the end of February the police came and took the dog away. On the 9th of March the family got notified from police main office that their dog will be sacrificed.
The family has already said that they are ready to leave back to Sweden if it helps to save the pet. But the police says that sacrifice is the only solution, since the dog wasn´t stopped at the border and has lived in the country.
Almoust 3000 people signed up and more then 18000 Facebook members are involved in helping to rescue pitbull Majlo from death.
I joined the Facebook group Redd Amstaffen Majlo (Rescue Pitbull Majlo) and I hope more people will get involved with this case!
From Oxford American Dictionary:
pit bull (in full pit bull terrier)
a dog of an American variety of bull terrier, noted for its muscular build and often associated with ferocity.
Once again: “associate with ferocity” doesn´t mean it is ferocious. It is totally unfair to get sacrificed for the reason of being a pit bull!! Are we dog racists? How can we even decide which race is good and proper, and which one is not???
