When examining the argument of whether BSL is fair to pit bulls, one must view both sides of the debate. The reason why the pit bull is thought of as such an aggressive dog, is that these dogs were bred specifically for their strength. "Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting." (DogTime) Over the last forty years the pit bull has been a large debate because of the amount of fatal attacks that have been from these dogs. "In 2015, the combination of pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 91% of all dog bite-related fatalities."

Pitbulls, one of the world’s most misunderstood dog breeds and to me are sweet angel. If a pitbull is mean, it’s the breeder’s fault not the dog’s. The mastiffs, commonly used in households as massive guard dogs and family pets, are also called gentle giants for not only their big body but their big hearts. Last but not least, English Bulldogs, the stubborn, wrinkly dogs and everybody knows about them due to that video of a English Bulldog skateboarding under people’s legs on purpose. Throw them together in a blender to get Jenna, the nicest pitbull mix I’ve ever met and owned.
These people have only just met Mr. Hyde, but this singular action and his appearance are enough for the crowd to make judgments. As Darwin discusses in The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, animalistic behavior and appearance are linked a more violent person (qtd. in Stevenson 157).

Or they can potentially be very dangerous if they escape or turn on a person, they can also carry very deadly diseases. Despite these being true statements, there are many reported pitbull fatalities and attacks each year, along with rottweilers and other types of large and aggressive dogs.

Imagine going to a animal shelter and all there is is pitbulls and you heard all of the bad things about them so you decide not to get one but instead leave and then driving down the road you see a lady with a pit bull and its playing with a bunch of kids but you don't like it and you think that people shouldn't own pit bulls well i think people should be able to own them. If you have an imagine of a evil vicious killer when you hear pit bull then you haven't met a real pitbull the ones they call killers are brainwashed to be like that. They were made to fight but all of the pitbulls i have been around are all super friendly and nice and wouldn't hurt anyone unless they were protecting them. The ones you hear about are tortured and beaten and never shown any love at all sometimes they get put into fights then forgotten about left to die in someone's backyard stuck to a chain. It's the hard truth but how much better would it be if you adopted that pitbull puppy and gave it the love it needs so it won't end up like the mean ones you see.
