The Pit bull breed bears all sorts of stereotypes in the doggie community. The cliché of the bad dog, the hostile puppy, the criminal’s pooch.
Sadly, this horrible vision, enforced by the media, ends up hurting these incredible, respectful and beautiful creatures. One of those consequences, is the fact that Pitbulls have become the go-to-dog for savage street fights.
Dogfighting is an abominable practice. An illegal action that, thankfully, thanks to local law officers, has been on the decline.
A few months ago, Remi the Pit Bull was rescued from such a ring. His story, especially the compassion displayed by the rescue officer towards the battered animal, made national headlines.
