Beyond the Myth:
A film about breed specific legislation

Beyond the Myth is a film about Pit Bulls that explores breed-specific legislation and how such laws are unfairly condemning thousands of dogs. It was made in 2011 but you can still host a screening in your area or purchase the DVD. See this movie trailer to learn more. This documentary was the brainchild of Libby Sherrill, as she notes, “I developed the concept as part of my senior project while attending graduate school at The University of Tennessee. After I received my M.S. in Communications, I left an eight-year career with Scripps Networks (HGTV) to produce Beyond The Myth.” You can read more about the myths surrounding Pit Bulls here.

Now that lawmakers can legally smoke weed in Colorado maybe they'll lighten up get a clue and change the stupid pit bull law. My dog is a pit mix and we lived in the mountains where the law was not enforced and obvious pit mix mutts for adoption are usually labeled terroir mix/ but if you needed to make a move it could tear your family apart:( I enjoyed fostering a pure pit in Hawaii who happened to be from Boulder, lucky for him it was not a forced move as laws were different then. No matter where you live or what kind of dog you have, owners need to be responsible for their dogs safety and training, if you aren't cut out for it get a cat,but as you know they'll attack if necessary, one made headlining news this week!
