‘Bold and the Beautiful’: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Adorable Pitbull-Baby Pic Scares Some Fans

Bold and the Beautiful star Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (AKA Steffy Forrester) says her newborn son Rise Ruspoli is best friends with her pet pitbull Ja’mie already. The soap opera star recently gave birth and is now sharing pis from her maternity leave at home with her baby Rise Ruspoli alongside her baby. But now some fans worry that her child may be at risk snuggling up with a pitbull.

Bold and the Beautiful: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Shows Baby and Dog Bonding – Fans Concerned

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood took to her social media accounts recently to show how close her newborn baby boy and dog are. She clarified that the two were inseparable since she brought her little one home. Jacqui said pitbull Ja’mie introduced herself to the baby by licking his feet, and has since not left Rise Ruspoli’s side. She captioned an Insta story recently “eyes on him 24/7” about the dog watching the baby.

The Bold and the Beautiful leading lady tried to counteract the scary stigma against pitbulls explaining that people once called the breed the “Nanny Dog” because they would watch your children like a nanny. However, a reputable pet site published an article on pitbull fallacies. They said that the notion of a “nanny dog” is myth advanced by by “pitbull advocates”.

B&B: Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Calls For Acceptance of Pitbulls

The Bold and the Beautiful beauty posts videos constantly of the bond between her baby son and beloved dog. Jacqueline MacInnes Wood also wanted to show how caring pitbulls are. Her fans seem divided. Obviously, Ja’mie is a sweet and well-cared for dog. But a quick Google search shows scary results about pitbulls and babies.

The Bold and the Beautiful actress writes often now about her baby Rise and beloved dog’s special connection. The B&B star encourages people to blame bad dog owners, not the breed and hashtagged it “don’t bully my breed”. She also asked followers to adopt not shop when it came to getting an animal. Clearly, her doggie adores the baby and Jacqueline is right there monitoring both which animal experts recommend.

Thick as thieves….. 👶🏼🐶 When Ja’mie met Rise the first thing she did was gently lick his feet. They have been inseparable ever since. She think he’s her baby. If he cries, within seconds Ja’mie is there to check on him and to give him sweet kisses. My heart melts. Pit bulls get such a bad rep. And sadly people think they were bred to fight but in actuality they were bred to watch over children. The “Nanny Dog" If you wanted to keep your children safe, the pit bull was the most faithful and loving dog of any dog breed, especially with children. They are strong and loyal and love children. If your child had a pit bull dog as a pet, you felt that they were safe. So what happened? Ironically enough it is the wonderful qualities of the pit bull that have attracted it to the “criminal element”, which have victimized this wonderful breed of dog. The Pit Bull breed is strong and very intelligent. They are loyal and courageous. Their main goal is to please their owner. Yes, they look tough, but again they have not been referred to as the “Nanny Dog” for almost 100 years for nothing! At one time the pit bull dogs were the most beloved dogs in England and the United States. #blametheownernotthebreed #pitbulls #dontbullymybreed #adoptdontshop #staffordshirebullterrier #pibble #babiesandpitbulls #babiesandpits #babies #riseharlen #pregnancy #dogsandbabies
