Chevy|4 months|Female|Boxer*Pit Bull MixThis is Chevy (short for Chevrolet). She is a 4 month old Boxer- Pit Bull mix. She is very social, super sweet and verrrryy playful.Unfortunately, a lot of the people at the dog park leash their dogs and leave once they see her. Why? Because they’re ignorant and can’t see past the vicious  monster that the media has painted her out to be.Because a few stupid people who’ve either intentionally trained their dogs to fight, or from simple lack of proper training and behavior correction, Pit Bulls have been given the reputation as ‘naturally aggressive, tenacious dogs with locking jaws and a hair trigger tendency to snap.’ This is absolutely UNTRUE. While a few pits have gone rogue, I’d like to point out that for every pit bull attack there are about a hundred dog attacks that go unmentioned by the media because they’re NOT by a Pit Bull.In reality, Pit Bulls are a very sweet, clown-like, affectionate and loyal breed of dog. They’re very intelligent, determined, and strive to please their owners (traits coveted and abused by dog fighters which, coupled with their physique and jaw strength, make them excellent candidates for fighting dogs). ALWAYS treat each dog on a case by case basis; no two dogs are the same, regardless of breed. Take some initiative and learn how to read a dog’s body language if you’re really that concerned about the safety of your dog in the presence with others.. don’t just discriminate any dog based on breed alone.
