I tell people to take everything they think they know about APBTs andthrow it out the window. I tell them that a few isolated, highly publicized cases don't define this breed, this breed that's been Americas dog from when it was created till someone started some propaganda. Then I tell em to get online and check out some unbiased resources and judge for themselves. I also let them know that bite statistics are fraudulent on both sides. My dogs are friendly and so are a majority of the pit bulls they'll run into... There's a few bad seeds in every breed!
