This is sad, how can anyone shot a living animal this is like shoting a child in my eyes because my pit bull IS my child I love him to death maybe if the elkton police did things like there suppose to they wouldn't be getting sued they should have told you guys to put the dog away first.

I agree it is sad. Pit Bulls have been getting alot of negative attention from the Baltimore Area lately. I hope for vindication for the couple sueing but I personally do not think it will end in their favor. The Maryland Court has deemed them a bad dog breed. If a settlement is offered they should take it.

You are so right East Coast!! Don't most computers have spell-check? Jenn--try using it.

Pitbulls get a bad rap because of bad owners. I have a wonderful, loving Pit and wouldn't trade her for all the money in the world.
