I’m torn on what to share and what not to share about pitbulls.
Sometimes when we share certain messages, we end up reinforcing the exact stereotypes we’re trying to avoid.
See my post, pitbull memes doing more harm than good.
So when I see well-intentioned memes and message floating around, I am careful about what I share.
Keeping that in mind, I liked the following infographic, but it is not perfect. It’s impossible to create an infographic (or to write a blog post) where everyone ends up agreeing 100 percent.
In this case, I especially like the information towards the end related to breed-specific legislation and how at least 17 states no longer allow municipalities to pass breed-specific laws. It also explains how BSL wastes money and does nothing for public safety.
Take a look at the graphic, and then let’s have a discussion on what kinds of pitbull messages we should and shouldn’t be sharing. I don’t have the answer, so I’m curious to hear what you have to say.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
From K9 of Mine:
Do you have any examples of how BSL is harmful?
