What’s with the Pit Bull obsession? Because we LOVE them, that’s why! What’s not to love? Unfortunately, due to media fear and hate mongering (all myths by the way) they have gotten an undeserved bad reputation. Ironically, they are also the most popular and overbred dogs in the United States. Sadly, only 1 in 600 Pit Bulls make it out of shelters alive. We’re working to change this. If you’re smitten with Pibbles like us, check out Dolly’s Foundation, Rugaz Rescue, Pit Stop Bully’s Rescue, and Pit Bull Rescue Central.
