Cesar Millan’s dog Daddy passes away

I have enjoyed watching Cesar Millan work with Daddy at his side on The Dog Whisperer for several years. Daddy, a stocky red pit bull, was a wonderful role model for other dogs of all breeds. His tail was always wagging while he helped Cesar create a calm, submissive atmosphere while dealing with troubled dogs. As a pit bull, he made great strides for the reputation of the breed.

Daddy succumbed to his battle with cancer on Feb. 19, 2010 at the age of 16.

    I’m worried that the Pit bull desires a unique kind of owner…these pet dogs, regardless of how ‘warm’ nevertheless have teeth, are nevertheless animals not having moral ideas and once they DO bite, won’t let go. As in all animals…some have a tendency to be far more suseptable to instinctual habits and time and time again, this breed tends to complete just that.

    Thanks for your comment. I advocate that it is the responsibility of the owner to be educated about the needs of strong breeds like Pitbulls, Boxers, German Shepherds, Dobermans and Rottweilers. I also believe that breed profiling is not the answer to problems that are in truth due to the owner. There are plenty of sweet, friendly pit bulls out there that I have interacted with personally, and you’re right, there are also plenty of pit bulls that will fight (just like any other breed). Instead of supporting breed-specific bans, we should promote anti-chaining, anti-tethering laws (both can lead to aggression), anti-dog fighting laws, and spay/neuter programs.
