Bud Dupree finished his second season in the NFL on a high note as he played well in the teams’s 3 post-season games, most notably delivering a memorable hit on the Miami quarterback Matt Moore in the divisional round. The former Kentucky standout is looking to have a breakout season as he is finally fully healthy and comfortable in his role as edge rusher.
Dupree recently sat down with ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler and discussed his love for pit-bulls, he currently lives with 6 of his dogs while he has 7 other dogs that he includes in his family that he found new homes for.
Dupree has been around the pit-bull breed since he was six years old and knows that there is a certain stigma that surrounds pit bulls.
“People think of pit bulls, they think they should be scared, my dogs get along with kids. They are like companion dogs; you can lay with them. I keep my nieces and nephews around my dogs all the time. They play rough with me, but when they see the kids, they get timid.”
Dupree wants to get a sack for each one of his 13 dogs this season, “It’s just for the love, really”.
