er-- seems to me that is 'positive spin'. This is a pit bull-- a much maligned breed-- that is being characterized in a postive way. I don't see why one would object to this.

Then they need to call it by its full name- American Pit Bull Terrier.

I still dont think the type of dog should even matter. Plus the majority of people will only see the words Pitt Bull and think a cute little child was ripped from its mothers arms and shredded into a million pieces, furthering the idiocy that is breed specific legislation.

They don't say anything about the breed other than to mention what it was. It's not like it says "surprisingly, the pit bull didn't kill anyone." They're just offering up detail. Whatever problems you may have with the issue of breed-specific legislation, doesn't automatically mean that everyone is out to paint pit bulls with a mean brush...and it doesn't mean that you need to project your issues onto every little mention of pit bulls. The fact is, news journalists like to include details with their articles to give depth and context and show that they did their homework. Sometimes the details are meaningful, sometimes they just show that the reporter asked questions.

And you really think they're gonna put "American Pit Bull Terrier" in the article? Do you think that anyone knows or cares about the difference other than pit bull owners?

Seriously, RDWHAHB. This isn't part of the conspiracy to malign pit bul...er, sorry, American Pit Bull Terriers. It's just some small-time reporter giving context/details for his small-town article.

It's stories like these that make me want to quit my job and join the MSPCA. Go bust some heads until stories like these are a thing of the past .....

I don't necessarily see the problem with referring to the breed of dog in the headline -- I think the writer was just being descriptive -- same as saying "Super-Sweet Golden Retriever ...." I can see as a PB owner you might be sensitive to stories about them in the news, though.

And our dog used to lie frog-legged like that when he was younger, but now he doesn't. He still has his "stud pose", though. Flat on his back, legs spread. Come and get it ladies .....
