By the time I read this, poor Spencer has probably gone over the Rainbow Bridge! This type of stereotyping goes way back for centuries. It was wrong then and it is wrong today! Seems that we have not come out of our caves very far have we?! This is the 21st century. I will pray for this poor dog and will push for an end to this until the day that I die.

Please save Spencer!!! I wish I could be there today but I live in Michigan and I have been following this story the entire way. All of Gods creatures deserve to live and also deserve love and respect....this poor baby was used to abuse, he deserves to be shown and feel what real true love is...God bless you Spencer!!!!

For a city to stand behind a decision based on falsehoods and myth is unconscionable.
Spencer is a dog, first and foremost, and needs help-compassion and help. Not a death sentence because of the size of his forehead or the fact he has a close coat.
Mobile officials keep referencing "policy"...yet research shows NO policy. Research did find an Animal Control Board protocol in their city ordinances. But this is not followed, and this voter feels it is a defunct smokescreen...hiding a system full of hatred and prejudice based on media myth and hysteria regarding a breed of dog that is vilified in this so called free society of ours.
Spencer deserves what all dogs deserve. A forever, happy home.
Had Spencer's ears been an inch longer or his coat a bit fuzzier, Spencer would be show cased on the front adoption page in Mobile as a poor abused dog in desperate need of a home.
But Mobile has proven to this dog owner and registered voter that prejudice and hatred still take the place of compassion and caring. Strange, coming from an area that history shows lived the racial profiling and hatred game long ago.
I have crossed Mobile off my list of places to visit again, and have duly taken note of those officials who have not stood up for equality and fair treatment and utilized their common sense regarding a poor, abused, hungry dog who so deserves a chance at happiness.

I am appalled at the City of Mobile. I was born in what I thought was the "wonderful city of Mobile" I'm so sad that a city would put to death a dog just because of it's breed. I noticed the Mayor was an African-American. Has it been so long ago that he does not remember people judging you by the color of your skin? Well the same applies to dogs. Why put them to death because they were born a Pit Bull? And talk about double standards! What if one of his Pit's were to get loose and be picked up in the city? Would the law apply to his dog as well? I probably think not!
I wish I were still in Mobile so I could help Amanda fight this fight! I am so opposed to BSL's!
