Jessica Biel

Unleashes the Hound

7/9/2009 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Can you spot what's missing in this picture? How about the leash around Jessica Biel's pit bull, Tina!

Jessica Biel
Though Jess held tight to Justin Timberlake's two boxers as she left Runyon Canyon yesterday, a third leash for her own pooch was mysteriously absent.

According to Pit Bull Rescue Central, the stakes are "always higher" with this kind of dog, and "while they may not instigate a fight, they won't back down from a challenge."

Harvey,,,please cite your source in regards to the "enzyme" that causes pit bulls to bite and not let go. Tell me it's not mythical "mean gene"...please tell me you have something more that that.

This pic looks airbrushed. Is that not a leash in her other hand? Where does it go

Awww, Harvey, I thought you'd be smarter than to bash a breed clouded in misconception. Pitbulls are commonly seen as being vicious because of the way they are raised by their owners. I'm sure any dog being beaten and neglected by it's owner would lash out once in a while. Sadly, the media enjoys targeting this breed and sensationalizing the stories surrounding them. Remember the woman who had to have a face transplant because her dog bit her face? The media was all over this story for months. Unfortunately, the media failed to mention that the dog in question was a Lab, a breed thought to be very friendly and calm. You must admit that if this dog were a Pitbull instead, the media would have included the fact in every report.
ALL breeds will be prone to attack when treated inhumanely, but the behaviors can be reversed through through proper care. Take for example the dogs tortured by Michael Vick (may his soulless body rot in hell for eternity). Upon seizure, the dogs were vicious, snarling killers ready to tear the flesh from anything close to them. However, after strenuous rehabilitation, the dogs are now loving companions in the homes of loving families. This is a perfect example of the human influence on a dog's personality. Also, when Pitbulls are bred for fighting, they are taught to attack another DOG not another HUMAN. Notice you never hear about dog fighting owners never being attacked? Pitbulls would like nothing more than to please their owner; even if it means killing another animal.

So, Harvey, next time consider how the human influence plays into the facts, whether it be the media's reports or the owner's torture. And, I challenge you to spend a day with a Pitbull and not come back with a changed mind. They are one of the most loyal, loving breeds and only want to be cuddled! Punish the deed, Harvey, not the breed!

One more time - Runyon is an off-leash dog park. People go there specifically because it is completely legal to hike with your dog off leash there. Come on, there's gotta be someone at TMZ who knows this. Everyone else in LA does.

First as pointed out by MANY people Runyon is an off leash dog park... second I have been raised with many different kinds of dogs from Weimeraners, Springer Spaniels, Labs and others.... and I currently own a Pit Bull. She is literally THE BEST dog I have ever had. She is so completely trust worthy and gentle and her vet, dog sitter and ALL of our neighbors rave about how wonderful and sweet she is and anyone who's met her with preconceived notions of Pit Bulls are sold on the breed after meeting her... I would love to walk her without the leash as she is perfectly behaved... but I can't because if any other dog attacked her, she'd be blamed because of her breed... my neighbors little dumb foo foo dob BIT her on her side out of the blue and she did nothing, she whined and pulled to go inside.... Let's not be overly judgemental based on biased news stories... did you know that Labs are actually the most aggressive breed... but that doesn't make the head lines... educate yourself people!

That dog is Jessica's dog Tina.
Jessica should have her on a leash considering she already killed her other dog! (a smaller pitbull named Tevy)
Instead she's being an ass kisser and taking proper care of JT's dogs and not her own!
Another sign that Tina is bad!: she has a device around her neck (Jessica is holding the other part in her hand). Most likely a shocking device to hurt or stop the her if something goes wrong! She should really have HER dog on a leash!

I am tired of people always putting down pit bulls.....any dog can be taught/trained to be aggressive. These dogs are loyal and and an all around great dog....I do agree that she should have the dog on a leash since i believe it is required by law.

No one else thinks it's kinda gross that the dogs heads are just as wide as her hips? Really? And the dog is fine, looks calm and relaxed. At least they take care of their dogs.

What she needs to be concerned with is if the dog get restless and decides to chew on those Nasty Bones that she calls legs. She is sickly thin...it's so not attractive!
