The misconception surrounding pit bulls is quite simply asinine; especially when you consider how many misconceptions there actually are. The problem is that so many people are misinformed, and the media and even the government officials in many towns have fed into that fear and these misconceptions. Did you know that in many places, you cannot have a pit bull? For example, many apartment complexes will specifically allow certain dogs but ban pits? Did you know that many homeowners insurance policies will not cover a home if there is a pit bull in the house? They are, in many places, a banned breed considered dangerous. The simple truth is that there are bad dogs out there; some are pit bulls and others are not. But not all pit bulls are bad dogs. You cannot put all of this breed into one category; it’s not fair. Let’s delve a bit deeper into the most common misconceptions that surround the pit bull.
