Overcoming the prejudice of the American Kennel Club, biased and degrading media coverage and attacks by the U.S. legal system, the Pit Bull still ranks among the most popular and most loved purebreds in the world. Author and Animal Control Officer Diane Jessup provides evidence of the breed's excellence in areas like obedience trials, police duties, search and rescue squads, weight pulling, therapy work, dog shows, and even movies. She effortlessly proves that the Pit Bull is not purely a fighting dog, but rather one of the most versatile, intelligent, and athletic dogs of today. Although many books have been devoted to the fighting historey of the breed, The Working Pit Bull focuses on the entire spectrum of the breed's skills, giving the remarkable dog its due as a legitimate purebred, a goodwill ambassador, and a devoted companion--a true Superdog! If you're a devoted Pit Bull follower you will want to have this book on your shelf.
