Update (2/11):

HB 667 will bring about the following for all Pit bull and Rottweiler owners:

required to obtain $250,000 liability insurance policy;

home inspections by Animal Control agencies that are both unannounced and without a court issued warrant;

mandatory spay or neuter for all Pit bulls and Rottweilers.

Additionally, this legislation has SERIOUS implications for SHELTER & RESCUE dogs:

If the proposed legislation passes, VERY FEW people will consider adopting a Pit bull, Rottweiler or any dog with that appears to be a mix of either, which will ultimately bring about even more perfectly adoptable dogs being euthanized.

More so, many rescue organizations will avoid representing Pit bulls and Rottweilers due to these requirements.

Please contact these legislators and let them know (politely) that you oppose this legislation (HB 667.)
Contact info is available in the 2/10 update, via the white, highlighted text.

Why Pit bulls?

As I work to provide positive, rational, and balanced information about pit bulls, and the virtues of dogs in general, I am often (read: ALWAYS) asked why I am so taken by this breed of dog. It is a fair question that isn't always asked in a reasonable manner.

In short, I find many pit bulls to posses the qualities that I value in a canine companion: great with friendly people, loyal, goofy, energetic, athletic, intelligent, and willing. To be sure, the run-of-the-mill pit bull is a lot of dog. It is all of these qualities in a medium-sized dog that has me so taken by pit bulls.

Alas, there are many aspects of pit bull ownership that are less enjoyable. Namely, dealing with the many negative stereotypes, and the constant battle to balance the mis-information provided by the breed's detractors.
...thankfully, it only takes is a few minutes of lovin' from my doggies and I am reminded they're worth the effort.

I hope this blog gives others insight into my life with pit bulls, and most of all, provides information on the breed in general; there are a lot of misinformed generalizations about these dogs.

Please contact me with questions or comments pertaining to dogs, pit bulls, BSL, etc..

All the best,

The HSUS attempted to fund raise for the care of Micheal Vick's dogs, while at the same time suggesting that the dogs needed to be killed.

And to add insult to injury, they weren't even planning on taking possesion of the dogs.

Contact the HSUS and tell them this is unacceptable!
