If there’s one breed of dog that is the most misunderstood and faces the most unfair prejudice, it’s the pit bull. Despite research that proves to the contrary, many pit bulls are considered dangerous and many are abandoned and abused as a result.
Those who do own pit bulls know the breed to be sweet, loyal, and loving and to be great with children and want to alter misunderstandings about the breed. One such owner is Shelby Rae English and his sister, Stacie.
Hurley is a pit bull and Labrador mix that belongs to Shelby, and the pup turned out to be quite the hero when he broke out of his leash during his walk with Shelby. Why had he done this? He’d heard a scream and was running to the rescue.
