I just saw this story posted on facebook about Dolly. Dolly was a pit bull who was adopted out of a Florida Shelter. A little less than a year later she was returned to the shelter with cuts, puncture wounds, teeth knocked out, and lacerations all over her body. They thought they would have to euthanize her. The owners said that she was instigating fights with other dogs in the area. The shelter workers didn't belive them because they said she was one of the most gentle dogs they had ever had at the shelter. They nursed her back to health and one of the shelter worker adopted her.
Someone I know on Facebook (who is expecting in a couple of months) stated that she and her husband plan on adopting a pit bull from a shelter - even though they have a new baby on the way.
What are your thoughts on pit bulls? Misunderstood Breed? or Horible Breed that should not be trusted around babies/kids?
