So I’ve actually decided exactly want I want to do in life (mostly)
I still want to teach. I’ve always wanted to help people, and my friends and even some teachers have told me I’d be a good educator. I want to stick with my plan of being a high school teacher, but for what, I’m not exactly sure. Most likely a social science or psychology.
But, I also want to help/own a doberman and pit bull rescue with maybe some rottweiler thrown in there. How do you even start getting those things off the ground? I guess you start volunteering in general animal shelters and go from there. I’ve just always loved dogs and those dogs (especially pit bulls) are the most misunderstood dogs. Other than single women living on their own and need protection, pit bulls are almost never adopted. They’re seen as dangerous killers with horrible bloodlust that are only good for fighting. That’s never the case. Pit bulls are loyal, sweet dogs who would never hurt a fly as long as their raised right or cared for properly even after they’ve been abused. And dobermans/rottweilers have the same stigma of “Warning: dangerous” just because they’re normally used as watch dogs.
These dogs are NOT born vicious. They are raised and abused to fight in dog fights. That is the only time you will find a vicious dog of ANY kind; if they were raised to be that way.
So I want to help rescue and love them and give them good homes where they’ll be loved and cared for. Give the abused dogs a second chance at a good life, free of pain and suffering. A life where they’re happy to see their owner’s face instead of terrified. I want them to be happy.
