    I own an APBT and she is great. She loves children and people in general. She would never be aggressive unless she was trying to protect someone close to her. It isn’t the breed of the dog that matters, it is the people who own them and how they are raised. They are terrific family pets and good gueard dogs. They statistically one of the least likely breeds to be human aggressive. There have been studies, many studies for this issue and many other issues and they have found that Pit Bull Terriers are no more likely to harm anyone or anything than any other breed of dog. This situation is a bunch of crap and people need to have experiences with these types of dogs before just throwing them away or having them killed. I am very upset about all the bans going on and if there is anything else I can do to help, please let me know. I am very upset about this and I am only traveling to Arkansas for a week! I don’t even have to live there. If the ban does go thru, you will lose a lot of residents and support towards the political figures of the state. Good luck to them at getting re-elected!
