Did you know there is a vintage poster of a white Pitbull with the American flag tied around it's neck and in the poster it has a line of the Star Spangled Banner? The United States used the Pitbull in the military and as a bomb/narcotics dog and still do. Did you know the United States Customs and Border Protection trained a full Pitbull named Popsicle in Front Royal, VA about 60 miles from Washington DC? Popsicle done a lot of great work as a working dog and one particular he was on the news. He sniffed out a truck in Texas that had over $125 Million worth of drugs. He was famous nationally from being on the NBC Nightly News and more. The dog retired in 2002. There are major disadvantages nationally for Pitbulls and Pitbull mixes to get adopted due to stereotypes that pitbulls and pitbull mixes are dangerous dogs to people and other animals. It is breed discrimination because it labels the animal has a dangerous dog when compared to other dogs in the shelters. There are many landowners, airlines, towns, cities, and states that ban pitbulls. the owners of pitbulls and mixes are also negatively impacted due to restrictions and discrimination which is wrong! These dogs have less adoption and usually get euthanized in animal shelters around the nation such as New york city shelters, ohio, and more. The Proposals are the following: NO Pitbulls or Pitbull mixes should be labeled as dangerous dogs at shelters and NO owners should be required to have insurance. If rules are to be made than it should be applied to all dogs from labradors, huskies, poodles, and all other dog breeds instead just pitbulls and mixes regardless of age, size, breed, and gender.NO PitBulls or Pitbull mixes owners will be denied of apartment rentals, airlines, living in towns, cities, or states due to owning a pitbull dog. It is discrimination of the dog and the owners of the dogs and it is wrong! No pitbull and pitbull mixes should be denied of becoming a therapy, search and rescue, police, guide, or any type of service dog because pitbulls are no different than other dogs and can excel as a working or therapy dog. The US Customs dog Popsicle had proven that many years ago through his extraordinary service. Create programs that rehabilitate and train dogs into good homes or be used in services (Guide, Therapy, and service dogs to the disabled) such as using prisoners to train the animals. The government can train dogs from shelters and give them to services for free to support worthy programs to help the society. The dogs being trained will also be tremendous service to animal shelters to making them adoptable into good homes. The colorado prison program does have this type of program and it works. Actively educate people about pitbulls and pitbull mixes and showcase pitbulls that done service work from the united states military, Customs and Border Protection, and more. These dogs have served honorably to the United States.

I have a Staffordshire bull terr. I been looking for a place to live and every lease says no aggressive breeds. I need some help find a place I live in woodstock, ga My lease is up in 15 days.
It's time for America to remove dog racism.
I am an attorney as well as a professional dog trainer (CPDT-KA), and pit bulls are by far my favorite breed. That the military employs BSL at all and, worse yet, bans a group of dogs whose members have worked it and sometimes given their lives in doing so, is shameful and despicable.
Breed restrictions is a form of discrimination. Pitbull owners no matter how friendly and safe our dogs are are denied home insurance coverage and denied apartment and home rentals just because of the type of dog we own. It's not right and changes need to be made. Stop discrimination & bullying the breed!
I have a loving chow chow mix w/ retriever but he still has a full blown blue/black tongue. I migrated to America and I left him there with my 85yr old grandma and grandpa. I would like to take him here to the USA to give him a good life because my grandparents are old, though he was not neglected... still I would like to have him here with me. I am living in an apartment who bans this breed and I agree. There shouldnt be any breed banning but at least try to give us a qualification if the dog is calm, friendly and came from a reputable breeder. My dog Sammy was about to get euthanized for being a chow. It is sad. Everyday I think of him, but the cruelty of these insurance companies and apartments are even worst!!!!
Pitbulls are loving family pets just like any other breed. Any breed can be TRAINED to do what people fear from Pitbulls, but that's not the breeds fault. Why should we punish the Breed for something humans have done to their ansestrors? SAVE PITS!!! They love us so why not love them as well. I'm a proud pit owner and I know my pit wouldn't ever harm anyone. They're just big lap dogs. So let's all just take the time to save a loving dogs life.
