Rotweiler Boulevard

Rotweilers and pitbulls are the favored dog breed amongst quite of few the young men of Jaffa. Walking around with a huge dog apparently adds, at least in their eyes, to their masculinity, or so i thought.
It took me some time, but now i really know why.
Dogfights are an almost weekly event and large amounts of money pass hands while betting on the expected winner. As to the looser?
That one doesn't survive, the dogs fight for their lives. The dogs are a source of income.

The locations of the (illegal) fight are always secret and passed on at the last moment by SMS or phone.

The - usually- all male audience place huge bets. The winning dog brings his owner honour and mostly money.

Poor dogs
