pit bulls rule the Internet

The good folks over at Mashable did a great blog post about 10 Animals With More Social Media Fans Than Major Media Outlets pages, http://mashable.com/2011/07/12​/animals-social-media/

All is good.

However, they left out all of the good pit bull pages with all of the many thousands if not millions of pit bull fans…

Today is one of four annual Blog the Change Days, where pet bloggers promote their favorite people, organizations, and events that improve the lives of animals in communities and all of the pit bull rescues and pages listed play their part… Send them some love, likes and licks !!! BOL…

This is a good subject for BLOG THE CHANGE… because pit bulls are too often Hairy Puppers who because of dog fighters and a bad reputation given to them by the lame stream media go through Deathly Harrowing experiences.

Of course, the cute and cuddly and funny animals were what they were talking about. And Patrick’s story started off kind of grim, being a Hairy Pupper. Although he is doing great now, about 48 pounds and a happy dog, he had been starved near death and thrown in the trash. Perhaps people who are fans of cute, cuddly and funny pets probably do not want to know about dogs like Patrick nor about pit bulls.

Still, Patrick has the MOST fans of all around the world, around the Internet. He has more Facebook pages and fans than many celebrities, not only more fans than the media pages. Patrick has 60-100 Fb pages … The Patrick Miracle page alone has about 110,000 fans.  How many celebrities have 60-100 facebook pages? And Patrick’s pages are all over the world from Canada, England, France, Germany, to Finland, Sweden, USA, many of the 50 states, and some of those have north and south or specific cities such as North and South Florida, North and South California, Philadelphia, and others.

The Vicktory dogs, former v-dogs, each have their own fb pages, Hector, Handsome Dan, Jhumpa, Cherry Garcia, Audie, and Vicktory 4 Cherry, and others with a few hundred to a few thousand fans each. And of course, we know the Bad Newz that they went through, and survived and are doing great. Seven are now therapy dogs. And many have earned their Canine Good Citizen certificates. They are adopted into loving homes, with kids, other dogs and cats and living a good news life now.

There are also many individual pit bull pages including Tuna the Pit Bull and others.

And there are folks devoted to changing the perception of pit bulls such as the Stubby Dog Project

The Pit Bull Propaganda Project

And there are the pit bull rescue heroes such as:

and all the other pit bull rescues

the boycott sites are also filled with pit bull fans, including No Way Subway, which has 24,000 fans….

there are the stop and end bsl and bdl sites as well as other groups, adoption sites and shelters that do not have pit bull in their name…

There are many books about pit bulls on the Internet including The Lost Dogs book by Jim Gorant, The Pit Bull Placebo, and others.

pit bull groups and businesses…

there may be some overlap of fans on various pages… but I bet you cannot look through these pages and find stereotypical pit bulls and owners, can you?

  1. That’s quite a round up. So happy to see Patrick is doing so well.

  2. Trying to do my part in being a good ambassador for the breed!

    Dropping by on the blog hop today – I’m working the big Petfinder Adoption Day – by helping out Etowah Valley Humane Society at the Acworth (GA) Petco. Paws crossed for lots of fur-ever homes for our wonderful pets.

    From: Chairman Meow & his minions (Lucille, Maggie & Dutchy)

  3. I really didn’t know there were so many sites on the internet about the Pitbull I started mine dedicated to my two pitbulls a couple of years ago just as something to do and it has grown quite a bit.
