Have you seen a pit bull or bully breed in a pet food commercial?Excluding bullies, pit bulls and pit bull mixes from pet food commercials is a form of breed discrimination. All dogs, including pit bulls can be loving, intelligent animals. On temperament test, pit bulls score higher than 121 other dog breeds. Dogs labeled as pit bulls work; as service animals for those in need; as police dogs serving the community; as military personnel helping our soldiers in combat and some are ambassadors for the breed. A pit bull was Hero Dog of the Year for 2013. For these reasons, pit bulls deserve positive representation in the pet food industry.

Currently, their pictures aren't used on pet food products and they do not appear in pet food commercials. Millions of Americans have pit bulls as family pets and would like to see dogs that resemble their pets represented in the pet food industry.
Each year thousands of pit bulls and pit mixes die in U.S shelters because many do not view them as pets; they judge them for their looks. Not using pit bulls or pit mixes in pet food commercials or on pet products fuels harmful stereotypes about the breed.
Let's dare pet food companies to be fair by using pit bulls and pit mixes in the pet food industry.
By signing this petition you agree that dogs labeled as pit bulls, pit mixes or bully breeds should be used in pet food commercials and their pictures on pet food products.
