Anyone that has a heart for animals no matter what breed they might be. Pit Bulls are not mean, they are trained to be that way. They want to give love and to receive it. Please give them a chance. Punish the people who train them to

Signed and noted. We need to change this perception! Also, put a stop to the inhumane treatment of these beautiful animals!

It's not the breed, but the owners/trainers that need to be punished. Any breed can be dangerous in the wrong hands.

Hi, folks! I'm back! Been offline for a couple of weeks!
And this is the best petition to get started back on! Pitty's are some of the most loving and precious dogs there are! I have 2 and would not trade them for the world!
One is such a wuss and the other is just a big old baby! They are what you treat them! They can be so loving, given the chance!

ALL DONE ! MY SIGNATURE WAS # 540 ! XXXX

HOW MANY MORE TIMES DOES IT HAVE TO BE SAID,
THAT IT'S NOT THE BREED OF THE DOG, IT'S THE OWNER OF THE DOG,
WHO'S TO BLAME FOR HOW A DOG ACTS !!!

PITTIES ARE NOT BORN AGGRESSIVE, THEY ARE *TRAINED* TO BE THAT
WAY, THROUGH ABUSE, NEGLECT & IGNORANCE !!!

SOME OWNERS WANT THEM TO BE GD FIGHTERS, SO THEY CAN
MAKE MONEY OFF OF THEM, ;

SOME OWNERS, JUST WANT A TOUGH DOG, THEY CAN SHOW
OFF WITH, ;

SOME OWNERS, THINK THEY WILL MAKE GD GUARD DOGS,
SO THEY SHOVE THEM IN THE BACK YARD, TO DO THEIR
GUARDING DUTY, THEN FORGET ALL ABOUT THEM, ;

SOME OWNERS, BREED THEIR FEMALES, OVER & OVER,
TO MAKE MONEY FROM THEM, ;

SOME OWNERS, HAVE THEIR DOG FOR A NOVELTY,
THEN JUST LET IT ROAM THE NEIGHBOURHOOD,
PRODUCING BABIES, BUT, OHHH NOOOO,
CAN'T GET IT *FIXED*, B/C IT WILL *RUIN MY DOG*,
HE WON'T BE THE SAME IF THAT HAPPENS !

WHICH IS ABSOLUTE B.S. OF COURSE !

PIT BULLS ARE NO MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN A GERMAN
SHEPHERD (ALSATIAN) OR A ROTTY, OR A DOBIE !!!

WISE UP, ALL U DOG OWNERS, GET UR FACTS RIGHT
& GET UR PETS, *FIXED*, SO THE OVERPOPULATION
OF PUPPIES, DOESN'T GET WORSE !!!

Hmm, Care2 ate my comment. I just said all the Pit Bulls I've known who were raised normally, in loving homes, were wonderful. People hear the name and think they are evil, fighting dogs, etc. It changes how they treat them. Treat them like a normal dog and they are a normal dog. Get up every day and hit them with a stick to make them "tough" and yeah, they're gonna get tough, and you may not like the results when they decide to get tough with you. NOT their faults. This discrimination has always been absurd and hopefully we can educate more people about it.

Our kids have both had pits, think a total of 6 over the years. They are all passed now, the last one about 3 years ago. All were raised with love and patience and rewarded the same back in kind to all of us. They even had their nails painted, blue for the boys and pink for the girls. Our son took his first one to "show and tell" at his daughter's school, PeeWee wore a scarf and his sun glasses and was quite a hit with all the children. Of course, no I doubt a teacher would allow a pit in his/her class now. The thing about them is they are tenacious as heck, won't quit and can be stubborn so the evil POS's train them to fight till the death. That's who should be put in jail. These dogs deserve a chance to prove themselves that they are not the monsters they are made out to be. BTW, petition signed!
