A couple of days ago I was at the laundry mat and they had their TV on and there was a video on about this dog called Winston. This dog was attacking a police car and he ended taking off the whole front bumper. Then when the cop tried taking off the dog grabbed one of the tires and flattened it. They ended up calling animal control to come and get the dog. The police officer kept calling it a pit bull. The narrator called it an Amstaff. They started showing the video again and this girl walks up and stands by me to watch it again and then they showed a close up of the dog and she goes "oh those dogs have a really bad bite." I turned to her and told her, "that is NOT a pit bull." She looked at me like I was nuts. She goes "Really?!?" I said "yeah, that isn't a APBT and reactions like yours is why they have such a bad rep. Not every dog you see that looks like that is a pit. Go online and check and you will be surprised what a true APBT looks like. My daughter raises them and shows them." She said, "that is so cool. (She was commenting on Holly raising them.)" I've gotten where I will now correct people when they say something stupid about APBTs and this is from a person who is terrified of public speaking or even talking to people I don't know. Thanks a lot Holly!!
