Stop the automatic kill policy on Pit Bullls

In Saginaw County, MI You can not adopt a Pit Bull. If one gets picked up by the pound it gets automatic euthanasia if not claimed by their owners. I think all types of dogs should get a fair chance to get adopted, and not just judged by their breed. Any dog can be a great dog if its raised right.

      Did you know there is a vintage poster of a white Pitbull with the American flag tied around it's neck and in the poster it has a line of the Star Spangle Banner. The United States used the Pitbull in the military and as a bomb/narcotics dog and still do. Did you know the United States Customs and Border Protection trained a full Pitbull named Popsicle in Front Royal, VA about 60 miles from Washington DC? Popsicle done a lot of great work as a working dog and one particular he was on the news. He sniffed out a truck in Texas that had over $125 Million worth of drugs. He was famous nationally from being on the NBC Nightly News and more. People can Google search him and find his story and how the government given him a second chance to fight the type of people that neglected him and left him to die which were drug dealers. Lizard was another Pitbull dog that worked for the Customs and a local police department who died recently. Shaka a female Pitbull came from the Manhattan, NY shelter and works for the Oregon Police department. How come the government is so proud of these Pitbulls and trains Pitbulls to fight crime, while allowing bans on them as well? It doesn't make sense. Pitbulls are discriminated and it's the biases that prevent them from getting adopted and into good homes along with becoming working or service dogs. Remove the bans because it's wrong. If Martin Luther King was alive he would remove it because it's discriminates the dogs. No dog should be treated badly due to gender, breed, mixes, and all instead respect and love all dogs as special and good. United States Government support your working dogs and remove the bans of Pitbulls nationwide. The Pitbull breed represents proudly as a working dog for the US it's about time you show them respect by removing the bans.

      Cruel, inhumane and without basis. There no bad dogs, ONLY bad owners. I personally know several loving family dogs that are Pit Bulls. Breed discrimination is at epidemic levels and should be outlawed in the U.S. (and all over.)

      Pit Bulls are beautiful, friendly and loving dogs. They are very misunderstood and make wonderful family pets. Give them a chance!!! End BSL.

      Pitbulls are a misunderstood breed. I own two and they are both certified therapy dogs and hold titles for obedience and agility in AKC and APDT.
