Posts like the one I just reblogged upset me far too much.
Honestly it’s mostly because my dog is a cross between two ‘aggressive’ and ‘dangerous’ breeds, but he’s absolutely beautiful and harmless.
I’ve had people avoid me in the street when I’ve been walking him on a lead and screamed at in public parks for having him off the lead. I trust my dog and I know he’s harmless, as does everyone who gets to know him, in fact, people joke about what a terrible guard dog he’d make because he’s so soppy and trusting and wouldn’t hurt a fly.
There’s no such thing as a horrible dog, only a horrible owner that brings them up that way. People shouldn’t judge a dog by its breed.
