I came across this great website, StubbyDog, advocating and informing the public about the misconception of pit bulls. One of my biggest passions, educating people on what great dogs pit bulls are. I have owned several and know these dogs first hand. I owned my pits when I had small children and can tell you they really are “nanny” dogs!

This site is named after Sgt. Stubby, a Bull Terrier mix, was picked up as a stray in 1917, by Private J. Robert Conroy when the homeless dog appeared at the training camp of the 102nd Infantry at Yale University. He won many medals and became a folk hero, in demand for parades, war bond rallies, hospital visits, and press interviews.
