What is a “Pit Bull”
The term ‘Pit Bull’ encompasses mainly three breeds of dog: the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Considered a ‘bully breed’ and subject to Breed Specific Legislation, they are by far the most euthanized breed.

What is “Breed Based Discrimination”
Referred to as “panic policymaking”  and is based on anger or fear and often leads to ineffective breed-discrimination laws. These laws not only fail to protect the public from dangerous dogs, they can result in the deaths of thousands of good dogs who are destroyed simply because they are or look like pit bulls.
