BullsEye Dog Rescue is a
Proud Sponsor of The Responsi-Bull Project
Make it your mission to be a
Responsi-Bull Pit Bull Owner!
A three part program, The Responsi-Bull Project includes FREE spay and neuter, a FREE responsible pit bull ownership workshop, and FREE obedience classes for pit bulls and their owners.
In the early 1900's, the American Pit Bull Terrier was so respected for its loyalty, intelligence and determination that the U.S. military chose an image of this iconic breed to represent our country on war posters. Today, due to irresponsible owners exploiting the very characteristics that once made pit bulls an All-American breed, they have become the most abused and misunderstood dog breed in history.
Despite their top-rated temperaments or their once respected status, pit bulls have become the breed of choice for many irresponsible people, and consequently are flooding animal shelters. An estimated 1/3 of dogs entering our shelters are pit bulls or pit bull mixes, and 90% of those dogs will not find a home.
February signs ups for the workshop and obedience classes going on now!
The Pit-Ed workshop will be held February 8th, 2014 with classes beginning on February 15th, 2014. Pit-Fix starts Febuary 1st, 2014.
