My husband and I are experienced Rottweiler owners and just last week we rescued a 10 week old pure-bred Pitbull pup from the local humane league shelter. We have 4 children. I would just like to comment that we have never, ever had such a gentle, calm and good-natured pup as our new addition Gunny. I am struck by his even temper. He is eager to please, loves to train and exercise and is extremely tolerant of our busy children. I have yet to hear him growl. What a sweetheart. We have already taught him to walk on lead, follow, to wait for his food, sit, and wait to enter and leave our home. He is so intelligent! And naughty (he sure does like to chew..). In short, an awesome pup who will be a lifelong family companion.

I have found that pits can be removed from a bad home given a good home with love n rules for the dog n they r as calm n gentle as can be one pit I saved was only told the one time not to knock over or wrap his chain around a two yr old girl ,he went a step farther and went under the porch each time to keep her from harm. A very good pet ,he was given a t bone steak and has since gone on to his reward.

I volunteer for a humane society shelter where the vast majoity of dogs are pit bull mixes. These are called "a bully breed." Sure, if you are afraid that they might whip you to death with thier tail wagging, or perhaps lick you so badly that you may need a
wahmbulance!
These dogs are so sweet you may need to visit the dentist, not an emergency room. There was a time that I too believed the hype, but fortunately the pits themselves have convinced me otherwise and I am about to adopt a very special girl that I fell in love with. She will share my home with my family, including my 6 year old grand daughter and my 8 year old german shephard(who has her own health issues). I am not in the least concerned about either of them with her, I am confident that everyone will get along just fine. Although I do plan to do a meet and greet for the shepherd's benefit.

People just need to know how to train these dogs so that they are not agressive

These dogs need to be wiped off the earth. I watched a 4yr old child die from a so called pet pit bull ...her dad owned this dog. How much more deaths will it take to wake up America

You can view and sign the petition
here:

http://wh.gov/l4Maw

Here's some more information about this
petition:

End Discriminatory HOA/Rental Pet Policies- Costing the tax payer

and government money in animal control and
euthanasia.
Breed restriction on rescued animals should certainly be illegal. By

placing bans on where certain animals are allowed to live only forces them

back into the poorest neighborhoods where these rules and structures are more

loosely organized. Which obviously only exacerbates the problem we're

already facing, of stray dogs and animal abuse. It is nearly impossible to

find an apartment or realtor that will not place some sort of 'breed

restriction' or an even more illogical 'height or weight

restriction' on rental properties. This is not only unfair

discrimination against the animals it is unfair discrimination against owners

of animals.

I am not sure what my dog Brownee is. He is a Pitt

bull, which one I am not sure. But I do know that everyone in my family loves him, and he shows affection for those of my family and others. He is a great pet. I do have training issues with him but I hope that professional trainers can help with those.Brownee by the way is only 8 months old, and full of energy.
