    Finally!!!!!! A good story about pits. Last night on the news they said that an elderly lady was walking down the street and a chow attacked her. A man in his house saw it, and started to call 911, and his two pit bulls ran outside and pulled the chow off of the lady! I didn't get to see the whole story, but that was the majority of it. The headline was like "2 pit bulls save womans life". I thought it would be nice to share that little bit of information.

    Oh, thanks for sharing!! I love stories like this. This just goes to show, that Pit Bulls are not bad, vicious dogs, like so many people think they are.

    That still won't change most people's minds about Pit Bulls but at least they did the article for Pit Bulls instead of against them. Thanks for shareing it.

    Surprised they reported a story about pits doing something good. Too bad we don't hear more stories about the good things pits do.

    You wonder just how many times a day things like this happen, maybe not so dramatically, but no less important to the person who is helped by the intervention.

    It just goes to show, you can't judge a dog just because he is of a certain breed. It is all in how they are raised. :)

    That is so true, but when I showed this to the town cop he diden't think that pit bulls could ever help anyone.:( Thats the main reason why I don't like him.

    I don't think that the media is ignorant, I think it's just their jobs to report what people want to hear. People don't care if a lab attacks somebody, so their not going to report it. But right now, if a pit attacks someone they are going to report it, because pits are in the news right now. So, I wouldn't put the blame on ALL the media. Our own Saje is a reporter and she has a job to do too. If she has to report on a pit bull attack, then she does. It's her job, not her personal opinions.

    I think that's a wonderful story. And it is stories like that which will help. I wish there were more like it. Not to take away from the Pits, but here's a touching story about a Doberman, another one of those breeds that are so discriminated against:

    Yeah I understand that....I didn't mean to offend anyone. I understand news is a buisiness and it has to compete with other news shows. If they don't report what gets people's attention then they would go out of buisiness, I completely understand that.
