Tanya Mustard had her hands full. With three young children, a dog, and a cat, she couldn't imagine squeezing one more body into their already-crowded home. But then she met Prince Charming, a one-year-old brown and white Pit Bull Terrier, and she knew she had to make room for one more.

Adopted Pit Bull DeniroPrince Charming, now named Deniro (pictured at right with his human sister Violet), is sweet, mellow, gentle and affectionate—exactly the kind of dog that the founders of National Pit Bull Awareness Day hope will change the negative perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners.

American Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes embody the best qualities of our favorite canine friends—lovable, loyal, eager to learn, friendly and great with families. Unfortunately, they are often overlooked by potential adopters because of misconceptions about the breed.

National Pit Bull Awareness Day, which takes place on Saturday, October 27, was established as a day to educate and foster positive discussions about Pit Bulls and Pit Bull ownership amongst each other and within our communities.

The ultimate goal of NPBAD is to promote the truth about this misunderstood breed, a truth that families like the Mustards already know: you'll never find a more friendly, loving, loyal, devoted dog than a Pit Bull.
