The blog post I did regarding pit bull dogs was so well received by my readers that I thought it'd be fun to do a pittie photo gallery with quotes specific to this misunderstood and too often misrepresented breed.
I have really enjoyed hearing from others about their love for pit bulls or about the special pittie that changed their perception of these larger than life lap dogs!
Sadly, the lack of spaying and neutering and the misguided fear generated by misinformed media reports has resulted in shelters and rescues being full of these lovable pooches.
If you are inclined to open your heart to adopt one, try one out as a foster or volunteer at a local pit bull rescue, I can pretty much guarantee you won't regret it!
If there is anything I can say about these big babies is that they are well able to convert the skeptical with their happy grins and loyal nature. Even ones who have been through the worst treatment imaginable are typically lovers at heart and could give any human a lesson in gratitude, forgiveness and resilience.
