“Smalls, big, fat, skinny, hairy, hairless, however they look, despite their colors, we have them all in the program.”

The public adoption and training program started in November has rescued the poor or belligerent ones from being slaughtered.

“Its race is very noble. It is the first time that I have a pit bull. It is very noble and it depends on how you educate it. It is up to the owner.”

In Mexico’s central state of Aguascalientes, they are being trained by professionals who eye a chance for them to become champion canines.

More than a second chance to live, they have the potential to be known nationwide.

“The current amount as I see right now is competitive. We say we will hold an open competition and you have to make a selection to represent us. I would say about half of them (will be chosen).”

With the program sponsored by the Municipal Institute of Culture, taming service is also available for home dogs with aggressive behaviors.

“With the institute in this case, we can spread the culture of pet ownership within urban populations.”

So far 225 dogs have been trained here, and 47 of them graduated with high expectations for canine tournaments or competitions.
