    Awww so cute! I hope they get forever homes soon.

    Aww – Hope made me think of Parrot.

  • Hope is a (mostly) Pit Bull. Maybe she has some Beagle/Basset genes, but basically, she is a Pit Bull. I know Pit Bulls are not all bad. But you don’t help your cause by trying to fake the breed.

    • Did you do a DNA test on Hope? You don’t help anyone by making guesses – because it’s all a guess anyway and your guess isn’t any better than the rescue’s guess.

      • This. No need to be a nanny-poo.

        • Not the one who introduced negativity into the conversation. All I wanted to do want to point out the ignorance in baseless accusations about trying to “cover up” the real breed of a dog up for adoption.

          And anyone who wants to actually “help the cause” should spend a significant amount of time volunteering instead of attacking a good rescue for making the best guess on breed with the information they have.

          To introduce some levity back into the thread, here is a Funny or Die video about doggy DNA tests (and people who think they know a lot about dogs) –

          • Anon – I think you misinterpreted my comment; I was agreeing with your sentiment. The “nanny-poo” comment was directed at the original poster claiming the dog to be a pit. Thanks for the video – funny stuff!

    • She definitely looks pit bull-ish in that photo, but more beagle-ish in the photos on this page:
      Wouldn’t 25 pounds be pretty small for a pit mix, too?

      • anonymouse_dianne

        Yes 25lbs is small for pbt but breed standard is 30-60 lbs. Females are usually smaller than males. And I guess she is kinda “big” for a beagle. Looks like a sweetie pie either way.

    • Having grown up with 5+ beagles (parents bred show-Beagles), I can assure you that head/bone structure resembles a beagle MUCH more than it does a Pit.

  • The real point is that there are over 100 dogs and cats up for adoption on any given day. It doesn’t help the cause to try to fake in pit bulls. Of course pit bulls/mixes are not all bad. But many potential adopters aren’t ready for a challenging dog. Be honest.

    • No – the real point is that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Over 100 dogs and cats up for adoption on any day?! On what planet?? I wish this were the case. 6 MILLION animals are killed in shelters every year. I wish that over 100 was a statistic that was relevant to just DC. But it’s not.

      • You’re right – I did exaggerate at saying only 100 when it’s more like 2000 animals being euthanized every day because there aren’t enough homes. But people respond better to more manageable numbers – so yes – I was wrong and I do apologize.

    • I don’t think this particular case is actually a situation of a rescue pretending that a pit is not a pit (although certainly that happens) — check out Hope’s other photos on their page.

      • Thanks for linking to her page, textdoc. If the rescue were trying to hide that she may be a more challenging dog, I’m sure they wouldn’t have put that she has issues with resource guarding in her profile.

    • Hey world, Victoria should just run all of the rescues because clearly she has laser eyez that can see dog DNA.

  • On – there are 7,832 dogs within 100 miles of zipcode 20010 looking for homes. Yes, Seven Thousand! Cut that in half and half again and again and still there is no way all needy animals will ever have a home.
