Part of the advocacy work we perform involves engaging the public in a conversation about pit bulls. We cannot dispel myths about pit bulls without first educating people about the origin of those myths. It is through a positive non-judgmental public discourse that we learn what myths are still being perpetuated and what new myths have emerged.
- Pit Bulls do not have locking jaws.
- Pit Bulls are not a recognized breed by the American Kennel Club.
- Pit Bulls do not have the highest bite pressure.
- Merle coats are the only color pattern that is not recognized as an official color. Merle is more of a coat patter as opposed to a color, see photo below:
