American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, Cane Corso, Doberman Pinchers,  Dutch and German Shepherds, Presa Canario, Rottweilers, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers, the much maligned breeds that we have found to be so loveable and affectionate.

Breed-specific legislation is WRONG. It is the backyard breeder, the irresponsible owner and how the dog is trained or untrained that is responsible for their bad behavior.

These dogs are intelligent and eager to please which makes them so trainable. If you are having problems with your dog, training is essential and should be started as soon as possible and corrected when problems first start to appear. They may have big jaws but they have long warm pink tongues and give great kisses too!

Many of the other breeds above are given a bad rap or confused with pit bulls, they too are welcome here.

I would like this group to be able to showcase what these wonderful breeds are capable of doing for their owners and families.

In order to participate in dog events, your pet must be spayed/neutered and up to date on shots

PLEASE BE ADVISED, it has come to our attention that when you try to join this Meetup using a smartphone with the Meetup app, your application for membership never reaches us, so we have no idea that you are trying to join the group! Please join the group using a home computer, rather than a smartphone (because the Meetup app does not work to join but does work for other Meetup features). If you are joining from Facebook, you may not be able to control how your photos upload to your Meetup profile.
