That is how I learned that pits are wonderful dogs. I spent more time with these little guys and especially when I was told certain ones were going to be put down due to no one coming forward to adopt him/her. I would take these dogs out to play with for their very last time of any type of happiness before being put to sleep. It gave me some joy to know I gave joy to these sweet dogs. Every time one was put down, I went home & cried for days. But I would go back to find other dogs who needed my help.
Shelters are over ran with unwanted dogs. I am not a fan of animal killing at all but people need to stop buying and breeding dogs. There are so many wonderful animals just waiting for a good home with someone to love.

oh wow - I am crying now just reading this. This is so sad. I was looking at shelters for a few weeks trying to find a dog. I went to 3 in my area. The one was all pitt bulls except for maybe 3 dogs. I have nothing against pitt bulls, but I can't trust them, espically if their background is unknown.

Your opinion of Bully breeds makes me sad. 99% of the Bully type dogs out there will make wonderful pets. You are more likely to have behavior problems from a lot of small breeds dogs that these wonderful dogs. I'm sorry for them that you felt you had to pass them by.
