an over breeding of pitbulls? in my area there are sooooo many and they are so abundant, and no one wants them! so they all end up in shelters. its sad really! and i dont mean like stray cats that breed, i mean like these people are purposely breeding them for money!

Yep. And then no one takes them because you can't find an apt that will let you keep them or you have a kid and it makes you nervous so they get dumped. It's sad.

Not really in my area people have them however they are few and far between in the shelter.

yeah i was just reading that post to!  i felt bad and took in a pit puppy and now idk if i can keep her bc no one will rent to me and we HAVE TO move and i dont wanna end up homeless.  im trying real hard! but damn its not easy.  my husband use to live down south and he says down there people will buy them fighting. my husband use to own a rescue for those fighting pits, he would buy them and then put them in good homes, (there are steps he takes to make sure they wont go back into fighing) but up here in ny they dont use them for fighting and thats what i think they are breeding them for

Yah. I don't understand people who pay money for "purebreed" pitbulls (or chihuahas for that matter); our county has dozens of them in the shelter. 75% of the dog population is either Pits; Amstaffs or Chis. A friend of mine paid $400 for a "pure bred fawn" pitbull... wtf.... I got my "Purebred Fawn Pitbull" at the shelter for $75; and he was already trained.
