The Truth About Pit Bulls

I've written before about the inanity of breed specific legislation so I don't want to go into that again, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to go in depth about one of my favorite breeds of dogs (which is saying something since I'm a mutt person at heart). I hope the information will help this misunderstood breed get the positive recognition it deserves.

Is Dogfighting on the Rise in Greece?

Dogfighting and betting on it is illegal in Greece. But, after finding some 200 abused pitbulls around the region of Attica in the past few years, animal advocates are concerned that this "blood sport" is become more popular. The discovery of so many pit bulls around Athens has led to suspicions that the animals are being held there in cages in wooded areas, but, so far, advocates have no actual evidence to back this up.

R&B singer Chris Brown is now selling pit bull puppies online for $1000 each through his website CB Breeds, much to the dismay of animal advocates. Brown's rep, Maureen O' Connor, confirmed that the site is legit and the pups he's advertising were from a litter born at his family home in Virginia, but that he's "simply selling them to make sure they go to good homes" and notes that it won't be a new business, reports the AP. Unfortunately, in Brown's world the only thing a prospective buyer needs to do to be a good home is click on a PayPal link to add a puppy to their cart and fork over some cash ...no questions asked, which can hardly ensure that these puppies will end up in a good for...
