Now a days people advertise Pitbull's as horrible animals, viscous and aggressive. People in the media will blow stories out of proportion and make them seem like killers. They'll say they've harmed people without further context (ex. if they had previously been abused). "Each year, 1.2 million dogs are euthanized, approximately 40% of whom are Pit Bulls. This means that nearly half a million Pit Bull-type dogs are killed in shelters annually. Of all the common dog types to appear in shelters, Pit Bulls are by far the most likely to be euthanized, while they’re only the third most likely to be adopted." Due to stereotypes people believe dogs are viscous and even refuse to adopt them, which means it leaves them to get euthanized. "Maybe the puppies don't sell or they get too big, and they end up getting dumped or given to owners who are going to use them for fighting," said Laura Melillo, co-founder of Motley Mutts Pet Rescue in Brooklyn. Pitbull's are often used as fighting dog's- hence being seen as viscous, even thought this is their owners fault. I had a Pitbull myself, she was my best friend. All dogs deserve love, even Pitbull's. Pitbull's were even used as Nanny dog's before they were used for fights, They would watch babies in Nursery's.
