WELLS FARGO BANK - SECRET PIT BULL LOVERS?




So I'm standing in line yesterday at my bank, admiring the cool mural on the wall. True to Wells Fargo history, it is the famous stagecoach with an array of other vintage type photos. Then my eyes catch the image of a cute little dog on top of what looks like an old safe. Am I imagining things? Is this really what I think it is? A Pit Bull being admired thru the pages of history? Yes folks, even corporate American can't deny our breed's history!

  1. American Express also used Pits in their historical advertising. I have a gigantic replica of a photograph hanging on my dog pix wall in the dining room. It depicts a very AB type pit, with a revolver at its side, laying at guard on top of a bank box. It's the centerpiece of my wall arrangement. :)

  2. sure.. back ( WAY back) in the day, they were just dogs, not fiends.

    and now there's a nice little rednose APBT in a new Blackberry ad... maybe things have come full circle

  3. It's a sad commentary on our present society when we have to look for validation to prove to other folks that the dogs we love, in this case the Pit Bull breed, are loving, friendly, and all around wonderful dogs. We love our Pit Bull and our Golden Retriever too! We love all breeds of friendly and polite dogs and don't discrimanate. We don't like being around dogs that are trained to be impolite.

  5. Do you happen to have the bank location as to where this artwork is hanging? I work for WFHM and would love to get a copy for my office. Our historical services does not have this photo in its catalog anywhere.

    Thanks!!

  6. Hmmmm I think things are starting to look up a little bit. Things have been slightly better for Pit Bull since the beginning of the "Evil Monster Pit Bull" saga. I think the case with the dogs taken from Michael Vick portrayed the dogs as victims instead of the bad guys.
