Domonic Brown Adopts Pitbull Puppy, Touches Our Hearts

It all started with Domonic Brown asking Twitter where he could find a new best friend.

Now, thanks to Greene Street Animal Rescue, Brown has been united with an adorable pitbull puppy named Wreck (an homage to the 2013 season or just a happy coincidence?).  Sure, it’ll be a challenging time ahead, what with the puppy not being quite potty trained at a young age, and everyone in Philadelphia overreacting to it not being potty trained yet, even though it’s pretty young to be potty trained in the first place.  Things will only get more trying when Ruben Amaro keeps calling, telling Brown to bring the dog inside then outside then inside, and gets outraged when everyone questions if he’s harming its development by doing this.  But even if fans give up on this scrappy little dog, rest assured they will all forget they ever doubted it once it starts hitting home runs and the season becomes all but an academic exercise.

    Why is it always pitbulls being rescued. I mean good for the puppy and good for Mr. Brown but what is the fascination with pitbulls?

      Chase Utley told him to go with a pitbull and you know what happens when Chase Utley tells you to do something…

        No, what happens?

      You’ve definitely never been to a local shelter. They’re full of pitbulls, like over 90% of the dogs. I always assumed this was related to dogfighting, but that’s just a guess. So there’s definitely a need to rescue pitbulls more than any other breed in Philly.

      Pitbulls are actually very sweet, lovable dogs; as rockstonic says below, there are WAY too many of them in shelters. Good on Dom for rescuing one.

        Pitbulls are inherently a risky breed to own as a pet for the can turn on you at the drop of a dime. They have been breed to fight and that instinct cannot be erased, I personally witnessed a “warm lovable” pitbull kill a dachshund after only growling (the dachshund). There was a child present and apparently the pitbull was protecting it. The pitbull grabbed the little dog and wouldn’t let go.
