This is Maisie. Maisie is a recent rescue of Hope for Paws, and she is possibly the sweetest stray you’ll ever meet. But many people wouldn’t give her a second look, much less try to approach her or help her, just because of her breed. Maisie is a pit bull, and while we don’t recommend approaching every stray dog you meet on the street (and especially don’t recommend grabbing a stray by the leg like you can see in the video), we hope that this video can dispel some of the myths of Pit Bull aggression and violence.
No breed of dog is innately more violent than another, just as no race of people is innately more violent.
Right now, Maisie is safe in the care of Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue, who are fostering her. But she is still waiting for a forever home. Find out more about Maisie and Hope for Paws here. Help us spread the word so that people can see what a real Pit Bull is like, and so that we can find Maisie the loving home she deserves.
