Pit bull terriers (pitbulls) are misunderstood and mistreated, but really, they're a loving, sweet, and affectionate breed. The American Temperament Test Society tested over 400 pit bulls, along with many other breeds. The pit bull terrier was the second-nicest breed in the test, with labradors in first place, and mixed breeds in third. That means that the second-nicest breed of dogs have legislation banning them from public places in so much of America.

BSL (breed-specific legislation) is a cruel kind of legislation that puts restrictions, like muzzles or bans, on certain breeds. Pit bulls are proven to be one of the nicest dogs in the world. The real issue lies in the humans-- people have trained them to fight, neglected, or abused these dogs, forcing them to act vicious. Pit bulls have big hearts and all they want is love. BSL prevents them from getting that love. It makes it legal to kill kind, family-friendly dogs because of the breed. In fact, 80% of pit bulls killed in Prince George's County, MD, where a study was conducted, were "nice, family dogs." This is also according to the American Temperament Test Society. These affectionate puppies deserve to be loved and appreciated, not murdered.
