Pit bull Myth of the Week

Myth: Pit bulls are only owned by criminals and people who use them for dog fighting.

Fact: You'd be suprised at how many people keep pit bulls as pets. I've met a number of families who's choice of a family dog was the American pit bull terrier. This is because pit bulls love their families. They also make good watchdogs. And, they adore children. Most pit bulls are owned by citizens who keep them as pets. Yes, criminals do own pit bulls. Yes, people do fight pit bulls. But, if people think they're the only dogs kept for illegal purposes; they need to open their eyes. Rottweilers, dobermans, akitas and other such breeds are also kept by the scum we know as dog fighters. Or kept as "guard dogs" by criminals.
