Take a moment to reflect on these names; do they sound like good sources for the family pet? A Google search for "pit bull breeders" returns over 843,000 similar results.
These known breeders are the tip of the iceberg Many of the pit bulls used as status or weapons dogs are under the radar, bred by backyard breeders, and it is these dogs that are filling humane shelters and draining their resources.
Shelters are then faced with the unenviable task of euthanizing these dogs or adopting them out as family pets. Ironically, few shelters or humane agencies have shown any interest in passing legislation to limit backyard breeding.
