I’m all over this. Pit Bull Families, get in on the fun and bust some stereotypes!
This sounds terrific! Dogs are dogs, no matter what the breed, or how square their heads. Discriminating against them is pointless and does nothing to reduce crime. It’s time we stopped blaming the dogs and I think we need more positive campaigns like this one. Thanks for sharing!
When I first adopted Brewster and realized the extent of his reactivity (what I then termed “aggression”), I started researching aggression to find out how to help him. Plugging “aggressive dog” into Google gets you to a lot of sites about pit bulls–mostly about how the aggression label is undeserved and what great dogs they are! Now I follow several pit bull blogs like Love and a Six-Foot Leash, Handsome Dan on Facebook, etc., have officially fallen in love with the (so-called) breed, and expect that some day down the road (FAR down the road, if B-Doodles and Beautiful Bert have anything to say about it) to become a pit bull momma myself. If there’s anything a lady with two terrier mutts can do to help, be sure to let us know!
Noelle, I’m so happy you found those helpful blogs – the writers are friends of mine and are wonderful advocates for all dogs! And I’d love to see a big goofball in your pack one day : ) I know you don’t have Chihuahuas, but you might get a kick out of this page: https://www.facebook.com/pitbullsandchihuahuas
That’s great! Bertie and Brewster both have some degree of Chihuahua, so we fit right in! Now all I have to do is convince Brewie that big dogs aren’t evil. Gimme a minute . . .
I am a pitbull type dog. My mom is registered vet tech and she saved a lot of animals working at the shelter. She and my dad adopted me because they found me cute, smart, sweet, and gentle. They are happy that I don’t even bark when someone comes to our house and that I like to say hello to strangers we meet on our walks. It makes them sad when people see us coming and cross the street or yell at their children to keep away – I really like children.
The truth is that I have a tough looking ear tattoo and there is a good chance that I belonged to a bad person when I was a baby, but I belong to good people now and so do all the other pitbull type dogs I know.
I hope you send your photo in to Animal Farm – represent for the vet techs!
BSL makes me sad. Unfortunately the unsavory element that exploit these dogs are the ones who get all the media coverage and the public buys the hype. It would be great if this initiative could change some minds!
And, on the flip-side, PIT-BULL HATE WALK NEXT SAT. TUSCON

Stand with love and send your photos in to help the AFF project grow – we are winning this fight (only the losing side would stage a show like this walk). Pit bull dog lovers need to stay positive and keep our heads up!
