What species on our planet has the most propensity for violence, abuse, rape and kills indiscriminately? That would be humans. Are all humans bad? No. Are all pit bulls rabid killers of babies and toddlers? No. Should you leave any dog unattended with a baby or toddler? No.
For those of you who think pit bulls are all bad, I have lots of folks who have chosen pit bulls as companions and they would love for you to meet their dogs so you can see the "other" side of the breed. What is the worst that can happen? That you find out that you misjudged these wonderful dog?
Come to an event celebrating pit bulls and the people who love them. Project Bully's Pittie Family Reunion Picnic will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 28 at the main shelter house at Shadyside Park.
