Pit Bull at Work


This American Staffordshire Terrier, aka a Pit Bull, is working very hard and giving her best to catch her enemy: the tennis ball.

She runs, she jumps, she catches, and returns the ball. Her owner with one hand talks on his cell phone and throws the ball with his other hand. So I have no idea about how old she is or what’s her name. She gives it her best, no holding back. She did all that for at least 10 minutes while I was there. No stopping, no slowing down…

Normally people use some kind of stick to throw the tennis ball. It’s easier on the shoulder and the elbow. But not this owner. He was just throwing the tennis ball with just his hand. It was quite impressive.

Her owner was talking loud enough for me to hear him say to whoever he was talking to, on the phone, that somebody (me) was taking photos of his dog.
