Happy Boy

Social Media, TV, and Movies have been known to portray this fun loving bred as vicious and ill tempered. With terrible owners using these beautiful animals for dog fighting, protection, and as an "bad ass" image enhancer they have gotten a "bad rap". Cities and housing have banned pit bulls from living in certain areas and owners have experienced getting their long time family member taken away from their home because of laws banning the owning of pit bulls. With more and more negative attention being given to this wonderful breed, I wanted to express the side of pit bulls that I have gotten to know over the years. They are fun loving, goofy, and intelligent dogs that with a want to be loved and give love to a family of their own.
