PitBull Myth:

There is a over population of PitBulls.

PitBull Fact:

While in many shelters PitBulls are over represented in comparison to other pure breeds this is not due to an over population issue but more due to bad internal adoption policies within many humane organizations and of a lack of understanding about the breed resulting in an unnatural deflation in demand. This misperception has led to further under supported demand and fewer adoptions. Lack of understanding and a sensationalist media unfairly portrays the breed further deflating value and supports a throw away mentality by many within the community. Unfair seizure due to breed specific legislation and lack of new and innovative approaches to placing needy Pits have further supported the false myth that there is an overpopulation within the breed. The American PitBull Registry is the only registry in the world to tackle the issue of needy pure bred Pits with new and innovative approaches and has set up the only PitBull Resource Network dedicated to finding all pure bred PitBulls in need a good home.
