My name is Carma Poodale. I am a poodle who is a friend of pit bull owners. I do not believe in BSL (Breed Specific Legislation). BSL determines whether a dog is a safe breed by the features of the body. Dogs like German Shepherds, Akitas,chow chows, and even mastiffs were on the list at one time. This also included dogs who were mixed with one of the breeds. Since starting BSL laws the number of dog bites have not went down. The laws have not made a huge difference like the lawmakers thought it would.
Ask any pit bull or any breed owner what they love about their dog and some of their answers will be "unconditional love", "best dog in the world", "happy to see me when I come home" or "I love the breed". If a poodle parent says it about their dog and a pit bull parent says it about their dog, then why do people look at pit bulls in a negative stereotyped way? Isn't everyone's dog, the best dog in the world??
In an effort to change the way people see pit bulls as a "bad dog", Animal Farm Foundation created The Majority Project. Animal Farm Foundation is a non-profit organization who helps animals to find new homes, as well as making grants to other humane organizations, since the mid-1980's. The mission of the Animal Farm Foundation is to get pit bull equal treatment
The Majority Project is a collection of photos showing how many pit bull dog owners are making a difference in their communities and showing the world that a pit bull should not be a banned breed.
I bet you are wondering why I, a poodle, would want to tell you about The Majority Project? Did you know that I was adopted from a pit bull rescue?? I spent a lot of time playing with pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Many pit bulls are also used as service dogs.
One of my best friends is a red nosed pit bull who finally found a home of his own after waiting for 7 yrs. Dozer says "I am the MAJORITY"
When we start treating all breeds the same , it will create a safer environment. Instead of blaming the dog for the breed, we need to make the owners accountable.
Animal Farm Foundation partnered with actor and “pit bull” dog owner, Jon Bernthal to create this upcoming public service announcement (PSA) to raise awareness for The Majority Project; some of the photos submitted will be chosen to appear in The Majority Project PSA to help raise awareness for the
