I hope the Humane Society of Southern Arizona gets sued when this dog attacks someone for being too close to it while the pitbull is eating, or tries tp prevent it from killing another animal. Oh, wait, they just warned all you prospective owners, so they won't be liable for what happens.
What happened to the days of only adopting out dogs that COMPLETELY passed a temperament test ruling out food aggression?
Translation: This pit bull mix likes to kill other animals -- cats, dogs, doesn't matter. If you try to stop an attack on another animal, he'll likely redirect on you and attack you instead. This pit bull mix will attack you if you look at him wrong while he eats. He'll do the same if your children look at him wrong when he eats. This pit bull is an escape artist, so you need to keep him indoors. No fence will contain him or keep him from roaming the neighborhood looking for pets or children to kill. You musn't open any windows in the summer, because he will escape to go marauding. You should replace all the glass in your windows with bullet-proof glass, so he can't crash through them to go attack something.
Oh, and as for the hugs -- don't try it when there's a unnoticed crumb on the carpet somewhere, because he might think you're threatening his ownership of that crumb and take your face off.
''He needs to go to a home without cats or small dogs'',so what happens if he gets loose? Is it cool if he mauls/kills cats/dogs/kids?
Will you only adopt to people with a tiger zoo type compound? Or one million public liability insurance?And a home with no kids?
If its all how they are raised then why rehome a bloody and battered abused fighting breed,will the Humane Society of Southern Arizona be paying any bills of the victims he may maul or kill.
I think mike and I are posting, three years later, because of the slate.com article.
I bailed after high school because even in the late nineties I could see that unless I wanted to go into construction or work a menial service service industry job kissing tourist ass, I would have to leave the old pueblo.
What I would like to know about the high numbers of people living in poverty (of which I was a part of) is, are the chronically homeless included in the stats? And, if this article is about the whole of Pima county, are the Yaqui and O'odham reservations included too? If so, the label "off the charts poor" makes sense.
"LAZY and unambitious people live in Tucson...97% of this sentence is true."
Well, at least you know when you're feeding people a load of bullshit.
I suppose the employees of Raytheon, DM's Air Force personnel, and University staff isn't a part of this list. I also assume that people like Linda Ronstadt, Ian Kinnsler, Lute Olsen, and Calexico aren't counted, either. And, surely you are striking any achievements in astronomy, medicine, and agriculture made at the U of A, as well as any of the many succesful graduates from Eller.
And, local restauranteurs like the owners of Lindy's and Guerro Canelo who have been featured on national television must round out your 3% of exception.
Sit down with your uninvited bashing of the only city that keeps Arizona from sinking into a Republican cesspool. You sound like someone defending a piñata at a Mezican birthday party...no one wants to hear it.
Move on, Troll.
Arizona State WOULD sponsor an article that bashes Tucson.
At least Tucson's state representatives don't vote overwhelmingly for bigot bills and our university's sports are consistent.
I'll wait until someone with some actual credibility features an article about Tucson before I get get angry enough to send Slate any attention (and, honesty, any would be better than the attention they receive now).
Oh, well may I suggest to him to live in Fort Wayne, Indiana where we moved from 2 months ago. Talk about a shithole. I'd like to slap the silly right off of this guy's face. Tucson is heaven compared to where I moved from. I plan to stay here for the rest of my life. I love it. I love the zombies that I meet walking down the very few sidewalks every day and night.
WOW. He linked to a nearly three-year-old TW article about Tucson being "off the charts poor?" Tucson certainly isn't any boomtown, but honestly, a lot about the economy nationally and locally has changed in that particular three years. He might have had more credibility if he had linked to something more recent, like maybe last year's weeklong Arizona Public Media series on poverty here, or the other weeklong series the Star did, also last year.
Don: I did say he made some good points.

The show was comical and the Mac'nChez was delicous! I waited all night for the pizza, but I didn't get a slice. Oh well, Maybe just do di'giorno next time. The Real Noid signing off. VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVvVVV
How old is he?
This article is so true and anyone that likes it has lived in Tucson their whole life and not experienced the rest of the world. LAZY and unambitious people live in Tucson (yes there are exceptions, but 97% of this sentence is true).
When my father first came to Tucson, he was puzzled and asked "Where do people work?" I pointed around to the small businesses that dot this town. He said "No, where are any factories? Where do people make stuff?" I did not have a good answer. See, we grew up in the Midwest, where that is what kept a town going. Sadly, because of our horrible trade agreements, most of those jobs were outsourced.
Luckily we do have some solar industry here. However, I can not think of any other manufacturing jobs. I hope Tesla does decide to open up their batter factory here. It would be nice to be home to a American owned company that is building products for the future.
Tucson is having a tough time with seeing the Middle Class disappear, but that is happening all over this country. We really can wait for the government to solve these problems. They are part of the problem with signing polices that allow companies to increase profits by closing plants, moving them overseas and laying off workers without any penalty.
People need to start voting for more jobs for Americans the only why we truly be effective..with our wallets. I buy American in almost every product I buy. The more American products we buy, the more the those companies make and the more people they will hire. We need to be our neighbor's, our children's, our parent's, our community's own "Stimulus" package.
Look around our town and you will find some people doing amazing things. Fed By Threads is a wonderful local shop that sells only Made in the USA clothing and donates to the Community Food Bank. We have a couple American Apparel stores that promote USA Made Clothing. Tucson Appliance is a local company that sells many products that are Made in the USA. If you can not afford new clothes, we have the Buffalo Exchange and it is a Tucson Company. When you go out to eat, make sure you stop by local restaurants and not chains. The people that own these businesses are your neighbors. They are our community.
If you do have to go to a Big Box Store, go to Costco. They provide a fair wage and benefits to their workers.
It's Slate, so who cares?
Maybe that is exactly the hero Australia deserves! ;-)
Road repairs for Pima County are funded by motor fuel taxes, not property or sales taxes.
Ally attended today's Supes meeting via phone... what's up with that?
With 20% of the Earth covered with Desert and only 2% of the worlds population living in the Desert, I takes a special kind of person to handle life around here. Once a person figures out how much they love it in the desert, and how beautiful the desert life is, they could care less what that other 98% of the world thinks about it.
Off the charts poor... except for the Louis Vuitton and Tiffany store that somehow stays open... sure.
