“Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan keeps many pit bulls in his pack, but his favorite was “Daddy.” When Daddy passed away about two years ago, Cesar was devastated. He had raised the dog as a pup and used him as an example of good behavior and leadership.

The famous trainer recently told Huffington Post that getting rid of a dog breed is “Genocide.”

“We say we love dogs. We can’t just say we love certain kinds of dogs. Otherwise, let’s just say we love some dogs. Let’s not say we are a nation of dog lovers,” Cesar said.

It’s no wonder that the self-proclaimed pack leader is hosting a new documentary about his love of pits. “Cesar Millan: Love My Pit Bull” is scheduled to debut Friday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on Nat Geo WILD.

In this sneak peek, Cesar and a fellow pit bull trainer show that the breed is born with the same potential as any other, but humans have failed them. This should come as no surprise to One Green Planet readers, who know that abuse, unethical breeding, and poor training practices lead to behavior problems, and breed has little to do with it.
