October is Pit Bull Awareness Month

It is a fact that Pit Bulls are one of the most maligned and misunderstood dog breeds in the world. Not only do they receive horrible press that aims to misinform , the internet is filled with negative media surrounding this beautiful breed! 

(Note: Characterizing Pit bull as a "breed" is a highly discussed topic. We like to use Pit Bull as a generic term to describe a group of dogs with similar characteristics.) 

Here is one myth that surrounds these fantastic dogs:

MYTH: Pit Bulls are all inherently vicious.
 This is a stereotype that is biased toward generalizing and condemning an entire breed based on the actions of a few bad people. The truth is that each dog should be evaluated by his own merits and not by his breed. A corollary truth is that there truly are no bad dogs, only bad people.
