pitbulls, their perspective.

most pit bulls are bred for fighting. once the mother dogs have their pups they are tossed on the street.if they're lucky and go into an animal shelter that will take them, (since most animal shelters deem them unadoptable, or immediatel they are eunthinized)their adoption rate is slim to none. this breed is one of the most popular bred in the united states. it is said that there is an average 1 in 600 rate of pits being adopted into a forever home. personally, this picture is of my adopted pitty Nena. we always adopt animals from shelters, and especially pit bull. they look intimidating, i agree. its what is on the inside that counts though. this breed is so loving. and back in the day they were used as nann dogs. please look past the face
