This is just one more pitbull that will be put down because of the owner's stupidity!! Owners like that are what give the breed a bad rep. They are sweet dogs when raised and trained correctly!!

It's just a shame that too many people judge by the breed and not the character of the dog itself (and that goes for more than just pitbulls).
