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.
