Thank You Comment :: Colleen Lynn

by colleen lynn.

Congratulations for taking an active part in informing the uninformed of both the dangers of these dogs and the profound effect on victims of attacks … Colleen Lynn you are doing a great job, as this is and will continue to be a growing concern. One look at the photos of victims, particularly children, should be enough to convince anyone. – Bruce D.

Dear Colleen Lynn,
Thank you for providing this informative site. It’s comforting to be able to visit with people who feel the same way I do. I am an Animal Control Officer and have been “in the trenches” for over 2 decades. Recently, I dared to express my unfavorable opinion about pit bulls on Facebook by sharing some of your stories. My goal was to encourage awareness and caution, nothing more. However, I immediately came under attack. I was called a hater, a hate-monger and a liar.
I have saved many, many pit bulls from life on the end of a tow chain where their only purpose was to be bred or fought, but they have always been a problem in our area, and lately, things seem to be escalating… [Read full letter] – AC officer, Southern State

Dear Colleen Lynn,
Thank you for being the voice for so many! I recently found your page while searching for dog bite statistics. Fortunately, I’ve not been a victim of these vicious maulers. I’ve always been leery of them, however. I’m so grateful to have so much information at the tips of my fingers! This is a public safety issue, and I’m thankful for the voices raising the alarm, and the daunting task of trying to educate people and raise awareness. Thank you so much for all that you do! – Rebecca, Oklahoma

Dear DogsBite.org,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your website. It has helped our family so much these last few months. Our 3-year old daughter was attacked by a 7-month old pit bull at a neighborhood BBQ. She was just walking past it to get a drink off the table, when it came after her. She has had two surgeries and we are hoping for a full recovery of her pinky after the nerve was severed. Our family has learned so much from your site and after our own experience, we are trying to spread the word on how dangerous these animals are. Thank you again,
–Sara, Colorado

Dear DogsBite.org,
Just wanted to let you know that your website has been so much help for my family. My 13-year old son was attacked on August 5th by a pit bull while doing mission work in our town. His wound on his leg required surgeries and a hospital stay. He is now in physical therapy and speaks with a therapist every week. Your website has helped us so much with the facts about dog bites, especially pit bulls. We usually sponsor a family for Christmas, but have decided this year to donate to medical funds for children who have been attacked by dogs. We were able to find these medical funds on your website, so thank you! – Robbie, South Carolina

Part of letter published to the comment section of Essay of a Fatal Pit Bull Mauling. View essay to read full letter.

Thanks again for publishing this essay, and for shedding light on all victims of these attacks … I wanted to commend the people involved with your site for providing the public with undeniable evidence of the organizations and supposed “credible” sources who disguise themselves as canine behavioral experts in order to manipulate and distort facts designed to deceive the public, as well as to thank you for exploiting the overwhelming fallacies presented by pit bull advocacy groups. I also enjoyed hearing about the politicians and animal rights activists who wish to eliminate the amount maulings and fatalities associated with the breed, as well as the shelters and rescues who are not seeking to promote higher adoption rates or misinformation about pit bulls, but are instead striving to reach the day when there are no more pit bulls around to enter their doors. – Anonymous

Dear Colleen Lynn,
First of all, your site does absolutely first rate research. Without your findings, when I had my pit bull moment, I would have been rudderless in a sea of inequity. For a non-profit to do the kind of work you do, informing people like myself about the grave realities of that breed, it’s really gratifying to see your growth and I’m really happy to give witness to your effectiveness in the battle against a true public safety menace.

My story:
One year ago I had a family move in next door to mine with what appeared to me to be some sort of Pit Bull mix. The dog was a female about 80 lbs. and just over one year old. I voiced concern with the owner, as I have a wife, 4 year-old boy, and infant daughter. After all, we shared common areas, the same fence dividing our property in the back, a car port, and our doors were roughly 5 feet apart in a town home association. I was assured that the animal had no Pit Bull blood and was friendly with children. However, I had been advised by a good friend that the breed was nothing to take lightly, pure bred or not, so I started to search the Internet. When I found your site, I couldn’t believe the back log of devastation the pit bull breed… [Read full letter]

Dear Colleen Lynn,
My dog and I were attacked by a pit bull two months ago. I just wanted to give you a heartfelt thank you for all you do. My anxiety swells just reading the comments and posts from the pit bull defenders. Sometimes I have to stay off the Internet for days just to regain my inner peace. They are so hateful. Please keep strong and know that you are an inspiration to so many victims. You are the resource I informed the Aldermen to research when I spoke at a public forum about my attack. Our city has now formed a committee to address the dangers that lurk and maul. If it weren’t for people like you and many others on PBRP, I would never have fared so well and been able to be so pro-active. So here is a “Job Well Done” for you to shine light on the darkness that is so pervasive in the pit bull culture. – Lucy, New Hampshire

Dear DogsBite.org,
I have had many animals over the years. I wanted to thank you for your website! Your site is written so well and the information is priceless. I have been feeling very alone in my dislike for pit bulls and the ignorance that usually goes with this breed. It seems like every time I turn around more and more people are advocating for pits. I don’t understand it, do they not read, watch the news or listen to others? Well you know this all too well. Again I am very thankful for your time, energy and very informative site. I no longer feel alone in my decision to not support this breed. I will spread the word about your site and help support the cause when I can. Thank you,
-Carmie, Utah

Dear Colleen Lynn,
I’ve long wanted a website like yours to exist, and now I find that it does. And Dogsbite.org is far more comprehensive and informative than I could have imagined. It is deeply disturbing to note that many of the victims of pit bull attacks are either infants or elderly, which I didn’t realize until I discovered your web site … I’m grateful for your legislative advocacy, as well as the website. Thank you for your work, which we wholeheartedly support. – Thomas, Washington
