No i presume you volunteering at BDH would suggest you are care for dogs and animals in general.Your comments are not substantiated and they show you have absolutely no knowlege of this breed, or dogs for that matter. Uneducated experts always stir the pot.Having been a volunteer at BDH I know that the staff/pitbull terriers are in the top 2 of their 'inmates' as enthusiastic owners quickly realise that they cannot control an animal that through breeding is volatile, nervous and very unpredictable. Being in a 5x4 kennel with one of them is scary even as an experienced handler and i therefore give them a wide berth on the street. sadly, from experience of my one small street in SE1, i can see they are increasingly the latest 'must
have' status symbol.
