For example, the media gets wind of a dog attack, the dog is muscular with a square head, owner identifies it as an APBT
, and suddenly "vicious Pit Bull attack" is splattered everywhere, further harming the breed's reputation.
It's too bad too because I much more often see pit bulls in a good light ,one rescued that alerted a family to a fire, another rescued one that is pictured getting along with other animals and kids, a horribly abused one left at a shelter that makes an amazing recovery
Having to correct people that tell me that that those dogs are mutts or "bull-breed mixes" is something I find hard to do. And these are sometimes friends that have seen many pit bulls at shows.....
