Wow. Just wow.

I understand getting around BSL but i always wonder if the shelters are doing the dog any favors when they lie about the breed (unless they really, really thought they were JRTs). True, this time it turned out well, but imagine if the adopters weren't so cool and decided to return the dog after he hit 30 lbs.

Yeah, it's one of those lucky happy endings thankfully. I don't think shelters are doing any favors by fibbing. Particularly in places where pits are illegal. My cousin just wanted to save a dog (which he certainly did) but of course wasn't going to give up his boy once he already had him. It's just not a good situation to put a well meaning person in. He had no idea he'd just adopted something potentially illegal where he lived. Maybe they really thought he was a JRT? I somehow doubt it considering the circumstances.

That story is just wow... People can be idiots.
