Good PR for Pits

Worried about proposed legislation targeting the American Pit Bull Terrier as a dangerous dog, the United Kennel Club is hosting the National American Pit Bull Terrier Association’s Dog Show, October 7, at the North Texas State Fairgrounds in Denton, "to see the true nature of this breed as a gentle, hard working and eager to please breed, as well as the positive results that come from responsible dog ownership," according to the group, which notes that pits are "one of the most popularly registered breeds in America."

From the group: Established in 1898, the United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. More than 60 percent of its 12,000 annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training and instinct. UKC prides itself on its family-oriented, friendly, educational events.
