End misdirected hate towards American Pit Bull Terriers and educate the public! End Breed Specific Legislation world-wide! NOW, before more loving families are torn apart, and innocent lives are lost!

The American Pit Bull Terrier is blessed with tenacious athletic ability (the ultimate super dog), loyalty, intelligence, and high energy. These dogs are not dogs for novice owners nor a dog for the lazy person.

They are not fashion accessories or macho-tough-guy symbols. American Pit Bull Terriers are a breed apart from every other canine on earth.

Once an American Icon, the American Pit Bull Terrier was the All-American perfect pet. They are bred to be loyal, afectionate, and loving to their family. They love to please thier masters and will go to great lengths to do so. Unfortunatly the wrong type of people exploited this charcteristic to turn these beautiful dogs into fighters. This is not what the Pitbulls want for themselves. They have to be beaten, abused, starved and broken to turn this loving family orientated dog, into a vicious killer.

No other breed in history has been so misunderstood or made the villain as long or as often as the American Pit Bull Terrier. Sadly, these trends continue 20 years after they started. They must end NOW!

Ban the DEED, not the BREED, and end misdirected hate and ignorance based sterotypes!

1. The American Pit Bull Terrier as a breed is not human aggressive. In fact, quite the opposite is true of Pits. They are very loving, loyal, and gentle

2. The APBT was so popular in the early 1900's they were our mascot not only in WWI, but WWII as well. They were featured on military recruiting posters.

3. Pit Bulls are great with kids. They were affectionatly nicknamed "The Nanny Dog" for their gentle, nurturing, nature and their love for their famlies.

4. Pit Bulls score an 83.4% passing rate with the American Temperament Test Society. Scoring higher than most beloved "family" dogs like Labs & "Goldens"

5. Pit Bulls currently work as Therapy Dogs, Search and Rescue, and Service Dogs. Pit Bulls also compete in competitions like agility and weight pulling
