Hey! Yup - we currently have two recued bullies... They are great dogs (well, one has some behavioral issues that we're working on that aren't linked to aggresion, but I'm fairly sure that being partially starved, tied to a park bench in the middle of NYC, and left for some random stranger to deal with can have that affect on a puppy of any breed). I've had a bunch of friends and family in the same boat as your parents and brother - they, too, are now believers that the bully breeds aren't all that the media makes them out to be! I swear, the best way to change people's minds on pit bulls and similar breeds is by setting a good example and letting people make their own decisions.
Hi! I'm guessing u have a pitbull? We got a rescue about 2 yrs ago.... BEST DOG EVER!!!!! I had always known this was a great breed, just didn't have firsthand experience, but my parents and brother thought/believed all the horrible things u hear.... They are now full-on advocates for pitbulls! :)
