Another great video from Dog Files, Kenn Bell. Pit Proud, will educate you, soften your heart, and open your mind. It will help you understand why breed bans are never the answer.
Blame the deed not the breed; promote responsible dog ownership and punish irresponsible dog ownership. Most importantly spend time, energy and money educating dog owners.
Although there is a disclaimer at the beginning of the video, I want to reassure everyone that if it was a violent video where dogs or any animal had been harmed, I would not have viewed it. Pit Proud focuses on the history of the Pit Bull, and the families that love them.
Please share this video.
Update: Just to clarify my opinion (oddly enough I was asked)-No one breed of dog is right for everyone. Not all dogs can be rescued. Breeding matters a great deal. The point as I see it–although the video does say much more–is that no breed of dog should be targeted for a breed ban. By the same token, finding a breed of dogs that fits your lifestyle is extremely important.

A little about this video from Kenn Bell, Dog Files Creator
“I’ve been working on Pit Proud: The History Of The Pit Bull for well over a year. But I believe that every second that went into it was worth it, because I knew then and I know now that Pit Proud is the single, most important Dog Files Episode yet.
It’s the story of what I believe to be, the most maligned and abused animal on Planet Earth.
The Pit Bull.”
A dog that the media has made out to be the “great white shark” of the land. A monster waiting to jump out of the shadows and attack your children.
But you know what I’ve found out over the course of researching, writing and crafting this episode?
Pit Bulls… are just dogs. No more, no less.”
