Dogs Clubs. I'm only repeating what I have been told while working. "She's a Pit Bull but if anyone asks she's an Amstaff. I won't be allowed to do dog club otherwise".
As far as im aware, wearing a muzzle in public is a law under BSL. So maybe you are breaking the law? I don't know.
It would absolutely break my heart to be constantly trying to reassure people my Pit Bull is the sweetest most beautiful dog around. To see people afraid and not wanting to touch her/him or cross the street to not be near her/him would be devastating! I would be so upset that people couldn't see how much love I have for the dog and how much love the dog has for other people.
IMO Pit Bulls(or any 'dangerous' breed[Rottis, GSDs, Dobets etc.]) Arn't a breed for just anyone, they do need to be treated differently. You can't 'let' a PB get away with things some may let a Maltese get a away with.
For example, Lady I suppose is classified as 'unpredictable' with other dogs and has been in 2 fights and come off needing antibiotics.
Can you imagine if she was a PB!? Because she's a Kelpie, no one thinks twice cause she isn't a breed seen as vicious. I don't want to live in fear thinking something bad will happen and because of the breed the dog will be treated differently.
If BSL didn't exist, if people saw the PB as they see the Shih Tzu, I would own one in a heart beat.
I don't feel I would be as responsible as a Pit Bull owner should be, thats all.
