Hopefully this isn't riddled with misinformation and half-truths like the others I've seen.

I heard of this film a few years ago. It was a local deal for me, it was debuted I believe at the Secret City Film Festival that is in Oak Ridge Tn. Which is only about 5 miles away from me. And I have a friend that supposedly knows Libby. Which is the maker of the film, she is a hometown lady so I'll see if I cant get in touch with her. Maybe get here on here and get a copy!

Here are a few links and a vid for those that are interested in it. And the facebook fan page.

For those that have any doubt in the movie I'd suggest reading these 2 links.

Yep, that was the problem. Irresponsible ownership. When I had my pitbull puppy, everyone assumed that it will be the most dangerous dog that I've ever had. But nope, I said that it is based upon how you treat your dog. I have heard of dog aggression but I think dogs only need our time, love and affection. An example is a child killed by a pitbull here 2 or 3 years ago. The city passed an ordinance banning the breeding of pitbulls. Did they forget to ask the conditions of the dog? it was thin, underfed and was always left in the corner. So, when the child came and taunted the dog. WELL, it retaliated.
So, the owners must be to blame. not the dog!

sometimes it might just be the dog itself period, but any dog can become HA without the proper training,socialization and supervision....even the beloved APBT. are we lying to ourselves or just trying to ignore the truth. fact or fiction? propaganda on both sides? Are they being bias when they put all the blame on dog fighters when irresponsible or ignorant owners are just as guilty?
HA dogs culled? ....game dogs not crossed with other breeds?

...sad that sometimes it still comes down to the dog having to pay the ultimate price for irresponsibility and ignorance on both sides

Yeah I've seen that in a lot of documentaries. I see a lot of them sugar coating things, and not mentioning important aspects....I've even saw a documentary that said "Pit bulls have a 1,600lb bite" What? Where'd you hear that one guys?

I really hope they do a good job, I can't read the links from this computer. But I'll check it out when I get home.

Gah, did you read this little snippet?

Beyond the Myth: A Documentary about Pit Bulls and Breed Discrimination

"Fast-forward two years. Fern has become a great dog and my canine best friend. Everyone who meets her loves her. Despite our frequent trips to dog parks and outings with friends, Fern, like most canines, gets quite lonely without the company of others of her kind, so I've been looking to adopt another dog."

Even when people try to do good sometimes they just don't fully understand what they are doing or talking about.

^Yeah this is the kind of thing I meant. I'll have a look at the movie at some stage but I'm not feeling too optimistic.
