The promise of a puppy

Who doesn't love pit bull puppies? 

It's easy to be convinced, when you're looking at your cute 6 week old puppy, that everything's going to be OK, because you're going to raise him right. What could possibly go wrong? But what you don't know is that hundreds of years of genetic selection and fine tuning for all-out aggression for no particular reason will eventually make itself known.

Around age 2, on average, comes the magical mauling age, and you've got a ticking bomb. A sweet, well-behaved pit bull that's never shown any sign of aggression can be triggered, the primal drives manifest, and then there's no stopping it without blood.

This story plays out time and again, while the pit bull advocacy continues to deceive, claiming "it's all how you raise them". The dangerous misinformation spread by these pit bull advocacy groups is directly responsible for many human deaths and many times more animal deaths.

Pit bulls are not protection dogs. They are purpose-bred bloodsport dogs.
