Tagline Winner Gordo

by Jen on September 9, 2010

Meet Gordo.


Gordo is a 2 yr. old Pitbull, who is absolutely lovable! He’s a big dog with a big heart. When I take Gordo out, I usually get two reactions: they either absolutely love Gordo or they’re terrified of him. It’s a shame that the breed has gotten such a horrific reputation because they truly are great dogs. They’re loving, loyal, and most of all, big goofs! Gordo always makes me laugh and it’s never a dull moment with him around.


The idea for his tagline came up when I was hanging out with one of my friends and her Australian Terrier. Gordo absolutely loves meeting new people and dogs, but Zelda (the Australian Terrier) isn’t very social. My friend started joking around that people are so afraid of Gordo, but it would be Zelda who’d be the one to hurt somebody. “If she could, she would shank somebody.” So it became an inside joke that Gordo wouldn’t shank anybody. I love it because not only is it pretty hilarious, but it also speaks to the breed. So many people are terrified and misinformed about the breed. “Will Not Shank You” is my way of publicizing in a humorous way to not persecute the breed for what’s really a result of irresponsible and greedy owners.


I can’t put into words how much Gordo has brought joy to my life. He’s such an amazing dog and I promise will not shank you.

Tagline:  Will Not Shank You
