5 Banned Dog Breeds That Deserve Your Love
Can you imagine looking at someone and judging their entire personality just by how they look? It may be unfair, but some dog breeds experience that prejudice every single day.
This is the most commonly banned dog breed in the U.S.
PetHelpful reports that the pit bull is banned more frequently than any other breed — despite the fact that it’s not actually a singular breed. The term “pit bull” actually applies to several breeds and mixes of breeds, but all of them face stigmas as “aggressive” and “dangerous.” PetHelpful notes, “Every time there is a biting incident, especially if it is serious, a pit bull is blamed. It does not matter if the dog is not a pit bull, since no matter what the dog breed involved, if no one identifies the dog it is assumed to be a pit bull.”

Many of these dogs have unfair reputations for being dangerously aggressive -- especially pit bull breeds like the Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier and American pit bull terrier -- but they actually make for very loyal and loving pets."
