I hear you and completely agree. When my coworkers found out I was getting a Pitbull some were not so excited for me. It seemed like they were trying to talk me out of it. About a week after we got our puppy one coworker started giving me stories from her EMT friend about one eating a baby in our town and all of these horrible stories from attacks. I finally just walked away because I was so sick of hearing all of this. My dog is very loving, she hasn’t met a person she doesn’t like yet and we continue to introduce her to new people. She is also very well socialized with other dogs and plays very well. Because she isn’t a lab, this lady has to talk crap…even though at the shelter there was a lab that would have torn us apart if that cage wasn’t there.
