My wife and I have been involved in Pit Bull rescue for just over a year. In that short time we have saved 5 dogs from being euthanized, one that was nearly starved to death, and one that would have been killed in her home state of Ohio due to BSL. We have adopted 2 and fostered 8 and of that total only one of them was even remotely human aggressive. But this poor 9 mo. old puppy had spent her entire life crated in a basement.

My wife and I have been involved in Pit Bull rescue for just over a year. In that short time we have saved 5 dogs from being euthanized, one that was nearly starved to death, and one that would have been killed in her home state of Ohio due to BSL. We have adopted 2 and fostered 8 and of that total only one of them was even remotely human aggressive. But this poor 9 mo. old puppy had spent her entire life crated in a basement. She didn't know the joy of playing with other dogs until she came to us. She didn't know that people aren't all cruel and heartless, she didn't know there was an entire world outside of that basement. And she is learning, learning to play, learning to trust, and learning to be loved. Humans "broke" her and it is our responsibility as compassionate humans to "fix" her. To blame her for how she behaves, when that behavior was programmed into her from birth by humans, would be very unfair.

It's unfair to blame dogs for the training and mistreatment that leads to the negative incidents; pit bulls are no more inherently dangerous than any other dog and the more people understand this, the more they will understand that the humans involved are the ones who need punishment.

I wish more people knew that pitt bulls being a "more dangerous" breed is a myth. I spend my life preaching against this breed discrimination to people. Makes me sad.

I am walking to Washington, D.C. From Manteo NC on April 2, 2013 in hopes to change the law in the use of gas chambers of a way of putting our animals to their death. This is "animal cruelty". This needs to stop. The animals suffer a very long and painful death which is severe and uncalled for while they are leaving this unfair world. Before they die they suffer through 40 minutes of shear terror, anxiety, fearfulness and excruciating pain. This is totally wrong and against the laws of...

I am walking to Washington, D.C. From Manteo NC on April 2, 2013 in hopes to change the law in the use of gas chambers of a way of putting our animals to their death. This is "animal cruelty". This needs to stop. The animals suffer a very long and painful death which is severe and uncalled for while they are leaving this unfair world. Before they die they suffer through 40 minutes of shear terror, anxiety, fearfulness and excruciating pain. This is totally wrong and against the laws of nature. This law should be directed at the animal shelters that still use this technique of deposing our homeless four legged friends. So please help stop this cruel way of killing our beloved animals all across the United States. Please sign my petition like my site and please share. I cannot make this work without the support of every animal lover out there. We can only conquer this in mass numbers.

They are very good dogs; perhaps folks should have to go through a background check to have a pet...

It's very simple really... before judging any dog... take a good long hard look at the other end of the leash.
