Pit bulls have a reputation as a dangerous dog but some say the breed has gotten a bad rap.
Haven Humane in Redding is trying to change some of those negative stereotypes.
They do say pit bulls are big dogs which have a lot of energy. And that can cause some problems for those unprepared for the dog.
But experts say a lot of them are great for almost all ages, and those at Haven Human are temperament tested.
If you’re looking for a good dog, Haven Humane has several pit bulls up for adoption right now, for only $20.
Normally the fee is $130 and all dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated.
