There are several breeds of dogs that get a bad rap and are judged purely on negative stories people have heard about them.  They get labeled as a "bad breed" and in my opinion there is no such thing.  Poor training, ignorant owners, and lack of proper socialization create bad pups.  One such breed that gets that bad rap are Pitbulls.  They mean a lot to me as I used to have a Pit/Boxer mix and he was the sweetest hound.  One of those dogs that would hold the flashlight for someone robbing the house.  I was able to get him through a Pitbull rescue and I hopefully gave him a better home than he had come from.
