Brandon Bond, owner of All or Nothing Tattoo and Piercing of Smyrna, Georgia is a double dish for us here at Positively Pitbull. Not only is he an amazing, award winning, world renown tattoo artist (two time international "Tattoo Artist of the Year") who i first heard of through Rand Family Tattoo in Australia, but he also has a Pitbull Rescue and is really showing up for the breed. Bond started rescuing pitbulls 12 years ago after fostering Cain, a 13 years old black and white male. "He is the most loving and amazing dog in the world "Said Bond, and with that another soul was captured forever by the American Pitbull Terrier and the All or Nothing Pitbull Rescue was born. Cain has enjoyed traveling around the world with Bond in pursuit of many adventures. Brandon Bond and All or Nothing Tattoo studio are dedicated to saving fighting pit bulls, rehabilitating them, and adopting them into loving families. Brandon is devoted to overcoming the stereotype of pit bulls by showing it is not the breed itself, but the training they go through to become fighters. their own dogs, Cain and Medusa, featured on the cover of the AARF 2008 calendar, were once fighting dogs themselves, but were rehabilitated and are now some of the most loving dogs one could own. All or Nothing Rescue has saved more than 200 Pitbulls in the Southwest so far. Bond was contacted by Suwanee-based Georgia SPCA Adoption Center Manager Julie Warnat about fostering 3 of the dogs removed from NFL Star Michael Vick property after he was charged with dog fighting. She had been tattooed at Brandon Bond's shop and was familiar with his rescue work. "I just wanted to work with someone who is a good person with people as well as dogs" Warnat said. All or Nothing Rescue is fostering 3 of the dogs, "Chuck", "7" and "Machiavelli". These are new names for their new lives. Bond and his wife, Ashley, plan on keeping Machiavelli after the mandatory court ordered foster period is over. The 2 other dogs have impatient new owners waiting on them. There have been no aggression issues, the biggest problem is lack of socialization. This is true of almost all the Vick dogs. These dogs are truly blessed to have found a loving haven. Far, far to many seized dogs do not fare so well. Brandon and his wife work hard to ensure that each dog gets a good home. There are already so many looking for homes, and thousands of perfectly adoptable dogs, including puppies, are put to sleep in pound and shelters across the country because there are not enough homes for them all. Please consider adopting from your local shelter, and you will never be lonely again.
