I'm a BIG dog person - I've had them my whole life! Pit Bulls are one of the greatest misunderstood type of dogs, I believe. They are constantly punished for what some of them are created to be - fighters, killers ... but this is not the type of dogs they are born as.
"Pit Bull Awareness Day" is a country-wide day to educate, raise awareness, and promote a positive pit bull image. It is also a day to raise awareness to the discrimination of the breed, and similar breeds, that comes with "breed specific legislation".
"With the constant negative publicity and sensationalized "hype" that surrounds pit bulls, Pit Bull Awareness Day was established as a day to focus on these incredible dogs and their devoted, responsible owners."
