In this BuzzFeed video, people who say they’re so worried about pups are asked to describe what they think about crater bulls, both before and after being draped in puppies.
They start by spouting off the usual stereotypes. They end by swooning.
“These guys would never hurt anyone, would they? ” says one participant, just before being viciously licked all about the kuki-chin and neck.
“I want to marry him! ” replies another — which, sorry, isn’t legal in Australia, where the video was filmed.
Unfortunately, another thing that isn’t wholly law in this region of Australia is the quarry officer puppies themselves.
This video was built in Sydney, which is in New South Wales, where breed specific legislation — or BSL — tightly restricts the saving of blocky-headed dogs.
Mel Isaacs, administrator of Team Dog — the working group that helps pedigrees keep their pets at home, and out of shelters, even through rough times — said indeed, it’s hopeless to watch this video without worrying about the fates of “these ravishing, happy puppies.”
“Their individual identities, their training and the care provided by their adoptive categories — none of this would substance. The only event that are important in an area with BSL is their appearance, ” she told The Huffington Post.
Some pit bull advocates are even forestalled with the video itself for labeling the dogs as craters and thus perhaps unwittingly to enhance the lucks that they will wind up seen unadoptable, faced with life in a cage or death.
In New South Wales, some mixed breed hounds and certain types of purebreds can be considered craters — the suspicion is that having called these puppies quarries in the video, although there are their genetic makeup is unknown, obliges it most likely that they will be treated as cavities under the law.
“I get that they were trying to do something positive but I fear that it has the opposite influence, ” answered an Australian quarry bull counsel, who asked to remain anonymous. “Why would you peril their safety like that for the sake of a video? That’s a lot of lives on the line.”
Brad Griggs, a canine behavior expert ,~ ATAGEND singer similar concerns about the video gambling the puppies’ well-being by announcing them pit bullshits in the video, while living in a region that penalise bird-dogs who have been given that label.
“BSL is just bad. There’s nothing good about it. There’s not a damned good thing about it. It doesn’t do one good concept, ” he enunciated. “Though Im sure the video is well-intentioned, this video unhappily continues such issues rather than tackling one.”
Indeed, at the end of it, you virtually have to said that he hoped that next up, BuzzFeed would bring adorable, at-risk puppies to the policymakers themselves, and movie them changing their minds.
