Voted. I think its ridiculous where its come to a point where we even have to vote to save one of the most popular breeds in America. Especially when half the negative reports filed about pitbulls arent even pitbulls. What a waste.

Where I work I hear the Animal Warden talk all the time about bite cases he gets and 70% of the time it's pits, 15% it's cats and 15% it's other dogs. He complains that something should be done and "it's the breed". I'm constantly preaching that it's not the breed it's the owners!! It's to the point it makes me SICK !! I can't stand prejudice, ignorant people. If they'd just take the time to do a little research they would be opened to a whole new world!! Pits are becoming so popular because they are such majestic, beautiful dogs-with a wonderful personality, but with that popularity comes the negligent owners who don't understand the breed and what owning one entails, which is why there are so many complaints lately.

the percentage i believe comes with the popularity..by a large group of people that are unprepared to take care of the dogs. I know when i was searching thru petsavers.com..i saw a large number of pits..pages of them. i hear the young adults here talking about either their dog..or their friend's dogs and pit is usually a standard word. the ones i see in the back of trucks or sometimes yippee in the front are being driven by very young adults. So i wish there was a campaign to educate..targeting the 15 to 20 or so year old group to not adopt until they are settled into their own lives..a dog is not a fad.

That is why I'm not all happy about the Neos being registered with the AKC. I'm just HOPEING that they will stay down in popularity, but I highly doubt it.....
