Pit Bulls: A Breed in Need

If advocates for the betterment of Pit Bulls do not take a stand we will surely be restricted by law from bringing a Pit Bull into our homes. While this would be a good thing for irresponsible and malicious owners; for the majority of families who have invited a Pit Bull into their homes this would be an injustice. The breed is defenseless against these claims and can only be helped by you.

Start With the Controllable

The first way you can help is to take care of your Pit Bull. Train it correctly and supervise it until you know your individual Pit Bull's temperament. Keep your Pit Bull out of trouble and you will be doing your part in helping to clear the negative connotations associated with Pit Bulls.

This may rub some the wrong way, but if you're not a professional breeder GET YOUR DOG FIXED. Who's going to raise the puppies? Are you going to find good homes for all of the Pit Bull puppies? Are you going to be able to ensure the safety of a full litter of Pit Bull puppies? If no, get your Pit Bull spayed or neutered.
