If you do that, he or she won’t take that long to win the love and trust of your neighbors. It’s the best way to eliminate the unnecessary fear that communities have towards Pit Bulls.
Avoid Breeding for Selling
Overpopulation is the biggest problem the Pit Bull breed is facing right now. Therefore breeding and pumping more Pit Bulls into homes isn’t helping the challenges the breed is currently facing. If you’re a real Pit Bull lover, don’t breed them if your primary intention is selling the litter.
Get Involved with Local Animal Control
There’s no better way to fight the fight than from the inside. Volunteer and become a part of local animal control. Having Pit Bull lovers within animal control can help prevent any unfair decisions and legislation taken by them towards Pit Bulls.
Fight Against Dog Fighting
Dog fighting is arguably the main reason behind the spoiled reputation the Pit Bull breed has. So do your part to raise awareness about dog fighting. It can be something as simple as sharing a post on social media or putting up a few posters around.
Support a Good Pit Bull Rescue
Don’t have much time to become involved? Support a good Pit Bull Rescue and help find abandoned and abused Pit Bulls loving homes. There are many causes carried out by true dog lovers who work tirelessly. They need our support.
In addition make a point not to support any group that advocates breed discrimination in any form. They are not helping Pit Bulls as a breed.
