This is something we have been having a problem with here in our area as I am sure everywhere this is a problem. To many dogs get labeled as Pits or Pit mixes when some that I have seen may have walked past one sometime in their life but certianly have no blood line with the Pit. To many people including shelter and pound worker do not seem to have a clue to the breed and it caricturistics(forgive spelling from here on out), they think because of brindling it a pit mix, square head-pit, big head, its mean and wants to fight, its a pit mix. Just 2 days ago we got a call to rescue a pregnant female pit from the pound because they wanted to put her down, then we were told it was a staffie,when we got there it was as close to being a two tone boxer as it could be with out being a boxer. I have seen Presos,Corsos,Dogos, Bull and French mastiffs, Visilas, Blue bloods, well you get the picture all classified as Pitbulls. So whats the big deal dude, hes the deal if a Dogo or mix attacks a person and is misidentified whos the loser, now ya get it. We as bully owners need to learn more about our pets and educate those who have no clue because it is those clueless that may be dictating to you and to me what pet we can have. Think about it.
