Today is a "day to encourage responsible guardianship of pit bull terriers and change misconceptions about America's dog" - from the Best Friends Animal Society. The event was created by Bless the Bullys to do just as stated, to bring awareness to the realities of pit bulls. Our media tends to sensationalize, distort, even mislead the public regarding these dogs, and events like the ones going on across the country today are needed to counter the negative stereotypes that have portrayed these dogs as vicious, wild creatures. Fact over fiction, you might say.
Our favorite rescue organization, Almost Home Foundation, will be promoting the truths and highlighting all the positive qualities of bully breeds, as well as encouraging the public to meet and get to know the many pitties the organization has available for adoption. Almost Home Foundation does not shy away from taking on bully breeds; instead, the organization welcomes opportunities to rescue these dogs and find them loving homes.
Almost Home Foundation offers this flyer, which you can download from the link -

Help spread awareness, encourage humane treatment and consideration of dogs.
And please, before you go...be sure to sign the petition (above, right) to tell Denmark to stop banning dog breeds!
