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.

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.

Pit* bulls

Phyllis De Santis Cisson

Since I was born we've had all types of dogs and cats. Pit bulls are BY FAR the most loyal kind and loving breed of all the large dogs I've owned. As long as I live I WILL ALWAYS have a pit in my house. People who fear the breed needs to do their homework before voicing their hate and stupidity.

Most people wouldn't even know a pitbul when they see one. All they know is the stuff they read in the hyped up media reports. Some facts about pitbuls...

1. The original name of the breed was Irish Nanny dogs.
2. One famous pit did exactly what the original purpose of the breed was...to protect the children of farmers while the adults were out on the fields..... Pete from the Little Rascals...a Pitbul!
3. The most highly decorated military dog ever is... a 35 lbs pitbul. The reasons for...

3. The most highly decorated military dog ever is... a 35 lbs pitbul. The reasons for his decoration was NOT his ability to attack but his uncanny ability to warn the troops in the trenches of mustard gas attacks in WW2 and the fact that he ran out into the battlefield and dragged an injured US soldier back to the trenches...the man weighed 5 times as much as the dog but the dog did it anyway. A pitbul named Sargent Stubby.

Pitbuls have a major fault...they are extremely dedicated and loyal.

Such a misunderstood breed, we need to continue to educate the public on how loving these wonderful dogs are, and teach them that discrimination is never warranted
