Pit Bulls were first bred to bait bulls and bears as a sport back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but soon became more commonly used as house pets due to their friendliness towards people (Brom, 1987-09, p.14). This indeed should open up society’s eyes to Pit Bulls not being an aggressive breed simply because they became more commonly used as pets, and they once represented The United States of America by serving in wars. Many of us base our opinions on what we hear in the media; we hear that Pit Bulls are overly aggressive, prone to biting, and in general should be banned as a breed. The court cases are squarely to blame for this breeds misconception of being a terror. The highest court in Maryland has held that all pit bull and cross-bred pit bull dogs are "inherently dangerous" as a matter of law and imposed strict liability on all persons who own, harbor, or control such dogs if they know or

Part 1: I watched the pedigree dog food commercial. Pedigree is the one who paid for the example to be created. There is sort of a “slant” because they show a women in her car with her dog whose overweight and then the car tips over because the dog is so overweight. They don’t say anything about the dog being overweight but it’s clear that is the case. The example shows that society, including our pets, are somewhat overweight but they are coming out with new products to help change that all the time.
I thought about how scared I was to go into the dog pound based on my misconception that they were all mean and aggressive. I wish I could have brought home the basset hounds and the Jack Russell and the Great Dane too. All of these dogs were good dogs, which don’t have a home. I had changed my mind about the Humane Society, all because of this one visit. Have you ever had a misconception about something, and then been proven completely

BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs. Usually, BSL targets breeds that are thought of as dangerous breeds. Proponents of BSL claim that BSL is a great way to reduce the threatening pit bull breed (www.animallaw.info, 2007). People who support BSL usually have imagined pit bulls as vicious dogs bred just to fight. BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls.
This is the popular, growing trend of humanizing pets. In "The Dog Delusion," April Pedersen voices her displeasure with society's increasing obsession with how people view their dogs as not pets, but as important parts of the family, workforce, and culture. However, Pedersen fails to emphasize how the personal relationships that people have with their dogs can be very beneficial, even if some go overboard with extra luxuries for Fido. Pedersen finds the latest trend of viewing an animal as a child, alarmingly ridiculous. However, she fails to recognize the ongoing and misunderstood connection involving human beings and their relationships with their pets.
