Pit Bulls are not inherently dangerous. If they were, there would be a lot more attacks than there are. Maryland has recently deemed Pit Bulls as inherently dangerous and that if they attack, the owners are automatically liable. There is no chance for owners to proove their dog isn't aggressive. As long as the ownere relizes it's a Pit Bull or a Pit Bull mix, the dog is automatically deemed dangerous. As a Pit Bull owner, I realize the responsibility I must have in owning one. Even though I adopted him at a year, he still is a very sweet dog and well trained. I'm sick of being discriminated because I have a Pit Bull and this is the final straw. I am asking you to please help support me and help save many Pit Bull's and Pit Bull mixes' lives. I love my dog like a child. He helps me through a lot. I know I'm not alone and there are Pit Bull owners just like me. Please just help us, the Pit Bull owning community. Thank you.
