All photos used have been approved and released for use in this photo gallery and taken by the families who agreed to be a part of this photo gallery to help inform the public about the breed they love so much!! These photos are 100% approved for use by the Pit Bull Advocates, families and supported of Bully Breeds in CT and beyond!!!

This photo gallery was inspired by some very ignorant and hurtful comments about the pit bull breed on my personal account. #PeopleAndPets is what my show's are all about, nothing but positivity! When we're kinder to animals we're kinder to people and that's a fact!

So what are pit bull's? They include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Bully, and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The American Bulldog is also sometimes included, but not as a general rule.

AND another thing - how do you spell it?? LOL - these are common and accepted:

Pitbull, Pit-bull Pit Bull, Pitties, Pibbles, The NANNY DOG, etc....

Famous Pitties!!

Pete the Pup from the movie Little Rascals

"Jack Brutus" who served for Company K, the First Connecticut Volunteer Infantry during the civil war

Billie Holiday's companion "Mister"

Helen Keller's dog "Sir Thomas"

President Theodore Roosevelt's Pit Bull terrier "Pete" 

Sergeant Stubby who served for the 102nd Infantry 26th (Yankee) Division during World War I
