So many people around me feel


So many people around me feel having a pit bull is “dangerous,” and that “losing a child will hollow a person out; you’ll never be able to forgive yourself.” My husband and I don’t have children yet, but we figured before we decide to go that route, we’d get a dog and train him, get him used to being around kids (who, by the way, are some of his BEST friends in town). And our family goes and says, “Oh, never have a kid during his life…he’ll just kill it.” Jeez–or that we’re crazy because we’re thinking about getting another one. We’re young, understand what it takes to be a responsible owner, and have taken those steps to ensure our dog is happy, healthy, loved, and socialized as much as possible. I only wish that people would think about that when they see a dog-person, anything/anybody in need. We all deserve a chance at a happy, healthy, loving, and socialized lifestyle–dogs, included (and I may be a bit biased, but yes, THE PIT BULLS, too!!!)
