Cinnabun Toughens Up for Texas -- Too Tough?

9/18/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James' beloved sidekick Cinnabun is getting ready to join Jesse at his new home in Texas ... but first she needs to get strong enough for the big move.

You may remember Cinnabun went through a whole ordeal earlier this year when she went missing -- and returned 23 pounds lighter. Jesse's prized pit bull is working on getting stronger -- pretty clear from the video.

Some dog people will tell you ... this type of "exercise" is SOP for pit bulls -- others say it's inhumane and dangerous.

I agree that dogs enjoy chewing and biting on ropes and toys, but when Jesse tells his dog to "get him!" while attacking the rope and having his friend shake it, that could be potential for a disater down the road. The dog could misinterpret the string or lace on a person as a rope and attack it wanting to play when it in fact is not the right time nor place.
I have a bulldog and i play with ropes and chew toys with him, but I never refer to the toy and demand him to "Get Him!" any dog is as good or bad as it is raised to be by their owner. The breed has NOTHING to do with how the animal was raised and trained to be as a puppy or in the early years of growing up! ;)

I don't think I've ever NOT seen a pitbull doing this. I don't think it's a way to make a dog sweet and loveable. But Jesse, though he loves his dogs, uses them to guard his business/es. So, I doubt you would try to climb a fence to play with Cinabun. Mission accomplished. I hope they ALL have a good life. Good for him for getting out of L.A. This place will chew you up and spit you out once you are "known". If you're not, then you would love it here.
