This one dog this one time…

We receive a lot of emails about isolated incidents where someone was hurt by a pit bull in attempt to discredit our entire movement. Today we are going to address this issue and set the record back on its toes. So to those who attempt these arguments against us in hopes to do a disservice to our cause, we challenge you to be open-minded and reasonable as you continue reading. We at “Pit Bulls are for Lovers” obviously do not want to see any harm become of any human being, which is precisely why we adamantly struggle to promote positive and responsible ownership of all animals, regardless of breed. In reality there are risks associated with most of the activities that we face in on our daily lives, and it is our own responsibility to assess whether those risks are worth taking or not. The amount of legislation that can be justified by your hyperbolic paranoia is infinite as we consider the things in our lives that can create harm if mistreated or misused. Your fear and ignorance about the dogs we choose to own is not a logical and reasonable way to determine if we should be able to have them or not. What you are doing is clinging to anecdotes about pit bulls without taking into consideration all of the variables that build the entire equation, which is disrespectful to both loving pit bull owners and those who were involved in the incidents you are exploiting. You are presenting misinformation and pseudoscience as factual evidence that pit bulls are an unstable risk to the population that must be countered with the force of law, when in reality the majority of pit bulls will never be involved in any sort of an attack. Instead of assisting a cause that seeks to save lives, increase knowledge, preserve individual liberty and promote love and respect, you are choosing to perpetuate myth, slander good law abiding citizens and erode our heritage of sovereignty. You have failed to decipher the difference between an entire population who love their pit bulls and treat them with the utmost affection and respect, with the scant few who choose to neglect and terrorize animals. We will thank you to re-evaluate your stance, and would appreciate an immediate ceasing of your libelous and unsupported claims against our families.

Sincerely,
Pit Bulls are for Lovers.

On Pit Bull Owners

Anti-pit bull groups (whose names will not receive exposure from our site), are intent on perpetuating the stereotype that ALL pit bull owners are malevolent, drug dealing criminals. They want to convince other citizens that the only people who are interested in obtaining pit bulls are aggressive individuals and/or gang members who want to showcase their ferocity. They massage these conceptions into misinformation, and then attempt to appear as legitimate “safety advocates” whose only intentions are to protect children from “rampant dog attacks”. Their entire premise is a house of cards built on antiquated banalities, racism, and hyperbole. We’d like to thank everyone on this group for showing how humiliatingly wrong they really are. Pit Bulls are for LOVERS! 🙂

NO BREED IS GUILTY

Working with dogs and being around dog lovers so frequently we hear a lot of bully lovers say, “You are more likely to be bitten by a chow or German Shepard than a pit bull”. While we understand the emotional side of this sentiment, morally the argument is harmful. When we make these assertions it harbors the notion that any breed of dog can be inherently more likely to harm than an another, which is a stereotype we’re ultimately challenging. There is no scientifically supported data that can conclude any dog is more likely to harm than another, and it really is as simple as a case by case basis. These kinds of arguments are counterproductive in dismantling discrimination. The law must treat each animal as an individual case and not judge an entire breed by isolated incidents, regardless of the type of dog.

LOVE NEVER DIES

While I watch my girl laying in bed looking out the window I am imbued with a sense of love so profound that it seems to vacuum the air from my lungs for just a moment. She turns around and looks at me, tail wagging, smiling her big pit bull smile and I feel an unbridled joy cleanse me from all doubt and fear. Something tells me that everything will be okay… because love never dies.
