Man, it just seem you're all mighty worried about what others think and instead of being steady and dealing with truths, you are going to hide behind "mutts" and "there are no Pit Bulls in rescue".

I honestly don't know. We rarely get pictures of the dogs involved or any registration history. I wish we did. IF we were ever to find out that none of the dogs were registered, but looked very very much like say, Coach's dogs, would you still say, "There is no problem with Pit Bulls"?

The problem is the someone that labels the dog incorrectly.

So, let's get the truth out there; and not hide behind "mutt". That just teaches them more vagueness!
