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.

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.
Pit bulls are not vicious dogs. I know plenty of people with this breed of bog and the dogs are just big babies! Save the Pitbull!!
bully breed banning is ignorant.
I live in the great state of Texas, and I can't tell you how hard it is to find a decent place to live to raise my kid because I have an 8 year old pitbull. He's super sweet, has never bitten anyone, and rarely barks. He's an inside dog that is super sweet to my 3 year old. He's respectful of people when we walk down the street and of other dogs. Yet I can't find housing because I'm banned before I even applied for a restricted breed. I don't sell drugs. I don't sell guns. I've never committed a crime in my life. I work hard, have held the same job for 12 years. Why should I be held at the same standards as criminals?
I own 2 male pitbulls and proud of it :)
I'm beyond saddened by the discrimination that takes place due to the restrictions. It's not just my dog that's being discriminated against, it's now my entire family. We cannot even find a place to live anymore. This is wrong!! Come on America; do something about this now!
