Why I Love Pit Bulls

People normally divide the world of dogs into breeds and then give characteristics to them. And most of people come to think of pit bulls as violent and aggressive dogs. This is reinforced on TV and in newspapers that go to town every time there’s an attack — and often the offending dog is described as a pit even when it isn’t. There are more pit bulls in shelters than any other breed, they’re less likely to be adopted, and they’re far more likely to be euthanized if we don’t change people’s attitudes!
