Is this a Pit Bull? Would you be scared if you saw this dog on the street? Actually, it’s an Alpha Blue Blood Bulldog. Any heavily muscled dog with a big head and short coat has come to be known as a Pit Bull and to be feared. There’s been a lot of talk about a Pit Bull ban in Santa Fe since two Pit Bull-type dogs attacked and killed a Chihuahua and injured it’s owner on Alameda Street last month. Today I talk to Nina Stively, the Education and Outreach Director of the Espanola Valley Humane Society about Pit Bull type dogs, the myths and the realities and what we should be doing to keep the community safe from dangerous dogs, Pit Bulls or otherwise. You can see some really cute puppy pictures and follow all the good works of the Espanola Valley Humane Society here and of their facebook page. Scroll down for their own Who’s Your Daddy Quiz.
