We applied for this beautiful pitbull that seemed like the perfect addition to our family! We waited two weeks to hear from them and finally they answered saying they were going to review it but before they did that to have us check with our house insurance to see if they had any restrictions on the breed.

We asked our insurance if there were any restrictions including pit bulls and they said yes, so long story short we didn’t get the perfect dog because people decide to discriminate against ONE specific breed of dog (which they think all blocky head dogs are a pitbull which is a story for another day).

Now I of course said why don’t we just lie and say she’s a boxer or a mixed breed, the insurance company would take EVERYTHING from us if they found out she was a pitbull and something happened, now I thought that’s a bit extreme. They can take everything from us because she has a blocky head and they assume she’s a “pitbull”. An insurance company shouldn’t be able to take everything from you because of the breed of dog you have and landlords shouldn’t be able to kick you out because of your breed of dog. Massachusetts isn’t allowed to have laws against breeds of dogs but insurance companies and landlords can discriminate against them and I think that they shouldn’t be able to.

I’ve always loved pit bulls and have always been against all of this hatred and negativity towards them. Us humans discriminate towards a specific dog breed because of the bad rep HUMANS gave them. These dogs do not deserve to die in shelters because uneducated people are afraid of them or their insurance doesn’t allow pit bulls, these dogs don’t deserve the ignorant things uneducated humans say about them, they don’t deserve any of it.
