Hi people. Apparently we (as pitbull owners) are all drug dealers and gangsters. HAHAHA
According to my 17 year old son, who get fed missled information by his uneducated mother, Pitbulls are associated with drug dealers and gang members. Tell me that doesn't make you LOL. it does me.
If this breed was as bad as a lot of people think a lot of pitbull owners wouldn't even own them. I'm a fairly new pitbull owner. I got my dog, Sulley in December as an early christmas gift. And before I did, I looked and looked for the right one. While I searched, I educated myself. I did my homework. That way when, becuase I knew I was going to have to defend the breed, I knew what I was talking about. Up until about 3 years ago I had never had an encounter with a pitbull. Then I dated a girl who had one and fell in love with her. As most people do. I decided then that I wanted a pit. I also told myself that when I got one, I would be the best pitbull owner I could possibly be. I would be an advocate as much as I could. I also told myself I would try and change the perception of the breed...even if I only changed one person's perception, I made a difference...might be a small difference, but it's something.
Then I get told this by my son. Who has had plenty of interaction with the breed. He was around the girlfriends dog a lot. And he was around Sulley when I first got him at three months old. His mother tells him that her boyfriends son had one who was tied up all the time and was mean. I wanted to tell her, HE'S MEAN BECAUSE HE WAS TIED UP ALL THE TIME!
Anyway....we all know what kind of fun, loving, affectionate, crazy, wild, clown kinda dogs we've all come to love. I get told every day by people I didn't even know had pitbulls, how great these dogs really are. So thank you for reading my little (long) rant.
p.s. Attached is Sulley along for a ride at about 6 mos old. He is now about 8 months old and about 60 pounds of love.
