When people ask me why I rescue pit bulls I tell them, why not? There are a lot of dogs that are identified as pit bulls even though the American Kennel Club does not recognize the "pit bull" as a breed of dog. You can find a pit bull of any size, shape, color and personality. My time volunteering at the city shelter in our Kennel Enrichment Program has shown me just how many dogs are called pit bulls based off of the shape of their head and color of the coat.
My dogs range from 24 - 65lbs and all three are called pit bulls. Every dog deserves a chance.
