"She was a pregnant pittie I rescued and fostered in my Miami-Dade County residence until she gave birth. The puppies grew up there and there was even a baptism party. I still keep in touch with the puppies owners and Katana, who was adopted by one of our members in Lauderdale," Canes said.

These are just two of the cases that contribute to her relentless spirit and fight to end breed specific legislation.

"Breed specific legislation is canine discrimination and the sole reason why thousands and thousands of sentient beings, known as man's best friend, are slaughtered," Canes said.

"Yes, I will continue fighting."

Do pit bulls attack? Yes, they do. But so German shepherds, huskies, labrador retrievers, poodles, dachshunds, chihuahuas, and given the right set of circumstances, any dog will attack. So, why do pit bulls get singled out?

It seems to me that myths and fear are behind the anti-pit bull argument.

That's my take on it. I'd love to hear what you have to say.
