The ASPCA has come out as being apposed to breed specific bans just because of problems that could arise from the bans themselves and the bans not being effective.

The American Kennel Club is also against breed specific bans because they realize that it does not target to true problem.

The Association of Professional Dog Trainers also does not think that breed specific bans should be put into place because it would not stop attacks because breed is not the only factor in attacks.

And these are only a few of the organizations that are against it. Others include the Canadian Kennel Club, the SPCA, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and many humane societies and veterinary societies.

Stories of Triumph

Rather than focusing on the evil stories of pit bulls, sometimes you need to look and see what the media is not showing.

Recently there has been an increase in the number of pit bulls being used in the police force because they are so easily obtained from shelters. One example is a pit bull named Kiah who is assigned to Officer Justin Bruzgal of the Poughkeepsie Police Department who is one of the few pit bull K9 officers so far.

There are also many programs set up to make it so pit bulls are seen as the dogs they truly are. In some organizations, pit bulls are actually becoming some of the most popular therapy dogs or service animals.

There are also so many stories of pit bulls being the hero in the end, including the first dog to be given a rank in the US Armed forces, Sergeant Stubby. He is also the most decorated dog in the armed forces to date.

Existing Bans are Not Working

Since the pit bull ban in Ontario Canada, residents have not been able to bring new pit bulls into the area and all dogs already in the area must be spayed or neutered. Although this has lowered the number of dogs in the breeds addressed by the ban, it has done very little to the statistics of dog bites in the area, if anything, they are actually on the rise.
