Appproximately 200 pitbulls are killed each day in Los Angeles alone because there are not enough homes. Only about 1 out of every 600 pitbulls in U.S shelters will find a home. Although people have abused and used pitbulls for their own sick purposes, most pitbulls remain loyal, loving and forgiving. Pitbulls have a long history of being war heros, service and therapy dogs.BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) punishes innocent dogs, while people who breed and fight pitbulls are rarely punished.
