The other day I saw a news article about 2 pitbulls that were abused and mutilated and left on the side of the road here in Virginia. One had to be put to sleep and the other was lucky enough to be saved. I am a very strong animal rights person, but so much more for pitbulls for 2 big reasons.
My 2 babies are both pitbulls....and they are my world. I think that people need to judge the deed and not the breed. These dogs are the biggest babies you will ever meet. They will lick you to death before bite you. They will eat a bug maybe and nothing else. Every dog, no matter what breed is amazing and no dog deserves to be abused or mistreated.
When I take them out in the public....people are scared of them when they come up to them because of the media and what people say. These dogs are amazing and just want love.
Just remember...these are great dogs and the worst thing they will do is lick you. Please do not be afraid of them.
