Pit bulls have an unfair reputation for being aggressive and dangerous, and, because of it, thousands of affectionate pitties are stuck in shelters, waiting for forever homes.
One U.S. city wants to change that.
With the help of local shelters and rescue organizations, Louisville, Ky., has launched a citywide campaign featuring families who adopted (and fell in love with) rescued pit bulls. The campaign is called "Pit Bull Dogs Are Family Too," and the photos are just too cute.
