Pit Bulls: Friend Not Foe

Before they were known as aggressive attack dogs, pit bulls were nicknamed “nanny dogs” and known as friend and protector to children.

As the Yonah Ward Grossman blog says:

The most tolerant, patient, gentle breed of dogs is now embarrassingly portrayed as the most dangerous.  It would be funny if the new reputation did not mean 6,000 are put to death every day, by far the highest number of any other breed euthanized.
