1,814 Letters Sent So Far

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 never met a mean pit. I use to volunteer at my local animal shelter and the first dogs I would go to were the pits as they were my favorite breeds. Because they were in a small contained area they were just really hyper all the time. if you were to take them out of the shelter and into a loving home it would take them time to get use to a new place yes but after a while you would see the true and loving personality of the breed that just wishes to please.
I am proud to be a pitbull mommy.I have rescued, owned and trained pitbulls for decades. Last year, I rescued female pitbull daughter, Chiquita, in return she gives me unconditional love and deep devotion. In fact, She detected my thyroid disease that was silently killing me and doctors ignored. This breed is easy to train and easier to love. All they want is to please. It is the bad owners and breeders who should be judged and euthanized.
End BSL. As people might see it, put bulls are the worst dogs at the moment but they're not! As a matter of fact the most agressive dog at the moment are the chihuahuas. Any dog depending on size or whatever can be aggressive and if people blame the pit bulls, they should really be blaming the owners.
I have 2 pitbull mix pups and they are like my kids.. They are not harmful and very sweet.this is not right for themto be discriminated on. Those pitbull attacks may be because children or adults antagonize them prior to the attack, but yet that is never detailed or specified in reports.

It's sad that while I was walking my pit bull today on a leash a Maltese broke off its leash and charged my dog. My dog calmly got low in fear and submitted and wagged its tail shortly after. I'm currently searching relentlessly to rent an apartment or house and can't find any place other than one complex which is 1300 a month with no yard. My dog wouldn't hurt a fly and is such a joyful creature and I'm afraid in a month we will have no options to rent. It's flat out ridiculous the rep these dogs get just out of the media and ignorance. Caution should be spread on all dogs and owners should be responsible no matter the breed. No way this should be this difficult to rent a place just because of the beer of my dog. The only dog I've gotten bitten by was my neighbors lab.
