I read many of the reports and watched the news coverage and never heard about dead dogs laying around the property? That would have been something I'd think they would really be putting out there repeatly like they did with the Vick case. So I'm not sure.
You rescue and what not but haven't been breeding for several decades right? Big difference. Now if someone has a lot of dogs and can't properly care for them thats wrong but its simply neglect and not dog fighting. How many dogs a person keeps is their choice, whether it be 1 or 100 as long as they are all properly cared for. The upkeep is costly and time consuming (which is why most have employees) but its their choice so they deal with it.

Old_Blood I agree with you.
What BS, I almost got sick reading it. I hate all the humane groups bull crap they have pushed out there. Granted I know some people treat their fighting dogs badly and use "training methods" all of which do little make the dog a better fighter but more to make it react aggressively. The dogs are not trained, beaten, inhumanely treated to make them fight.dogs from his stock fetch prices as high as $10,000 apiece.
What dogs were these? I'm not saying it never happened but did they ever come up with the evidence for this or just speculate. Almost every dog fighting bust or "info" article I read always talks about how these dogs go for xxxgrand with 100g purses and the like but they never have the cash flow evidence to prove it.
If he was getting as much each as these American Bully breeders do then I doubt he'd be living the way he did. I know people who got stock directly from him and they never paid anywhere near that type of atrocious price. I'm not saying it never happened and never does happen because some of them do go for that much, but I highly doubt it was the norm. The one thing I don't agree with is the dogs he did sell out to almost anyone over many years, which is why there are so many Boudreaux dogs out there and I doubt all them people were paying even a quarter of that price. He has appeared regularly on the covers of dog fighting magazines and newsletters since the 1950s posing next to his prizefighting canines
Do they have all these mags and evidence of what they say? The only game dog magazines I have with him on the cover is pre 76 or after 76 BUT with pics that are decades
old so pretty irrelevant and past the statute of limitations even if taken in the later 70s/early 80s. The dogs bore the scars of violence, the result of their suffering both
inside the fighting pit and during their brutal training. In order to be
a champion in the vicious "sport" of dog fighting, canine competitors
are prevented from all normal and nurturing social interaction with
humans and other dogs.
WTF are they talking about? Prevented from normal social interactions? Complete and utter BS. What "brutal training" are they talking about? Trainers favor pit bulls over other breeds because they have strong jaws, but humanely raised pit bulls make affectionate and loyal companions.
Um no they favor them because they have been bred for gameness and fighting for over a century from bulldogs used to bait other animals and terriers used on vermin. The same reason why many police departments favor shepherds and ranchers favor cattle dogs. Dogs bred to do the job.
Game dogs make loyal, stable, affectionate companions like any other Pit Bull. Yet I've seen dogs "raised humanely" that are still be DA and/or kill another dog, cat, opossum, raccoon, geez I've even met many human aggressive pet Pits all raised with "love" and treated properly.
Can't believe dogs have to die because of their ignorance and bias. I highly doubt ALL were too aggressive for adoption. What type of idiots write this, you don't even have to know about Pit Bulls specifically to know that many breeds have prey drive, dog aggression and ALL terriers were bred to KILL something. Jack Russells will fight each other and kill other animals. It has nothing to do with being "inhumanely raised".It is the repeated beatings they experience at the hands of their trainers and their constant neglect that turns these innocent dogs into involuntary killers.
"Innocent dogs" into "involuntary killers" beating a dog isn't going to make it be game or even make it fight. Sure as heck will make for a scared, fearful or shy dog. Not an "involuntary killer". Neglecting a dog makes them the same, have social problems, nothing more and nothing less. Some might be aggressive, most neglected dogs are not, just a bit scared and untrained is all.
With the humane groups beliefs just about every Pit Bull owner is a dog fighter. Its getting pretty tiring. Springpole, treadmill, 2" collar, multi Pits, walking/jogging with a Pit Bull, chaining/kenneling, pulling weights, those are all "signs of dog fighting" according to the humane society. As well the "fact" that dogs trained
to fight will turn on people for no apparent reason.
Quite frankly I'm getting tired of having law enforcement and the like come out. Is it because I have Pits? Is it because I have everything a dog fighter supposedly has so I can "train" dogs to fight? The Vick case seems to have a lot of these people antsy to make another "bust" even without real evidence, only the BS "evidence" of the humane groups. I know far too many people getting out of dogs because of fear, including those who have nothing to hide.
