Pit bull’s and Breed Specific Legislation is a heated topic. If you have a pit bull in your family you probably know all about this law, and how it effects you and other families with Pit Bulls.
A description of this Breed Specific Legislation can be summed up with this from wikipedia:
This legislation ranges from outright bans on the possession of these dogs, to restrictions and conditions on ownership, and often establishes a legal presumption that these dogs are prima facie legally “dangerous” or “vicious”.
The problem is many people that are not aware of how great of a dog a pit bull can be, also mistake dogs that look like pit bulls in this category, which poses even more problems for pit bulls and “Breed Specific Legislation”

And when you see this for yourself, maybe then it will make us all think about this law, and how it effects thousands of families with a loving and caring pit bulls in their family and how they have to deal with this issue on a regular basis.
