A Call for Pit Bull Photos

I am posting this for a friend who is working on a project called Stubbydog. Stubbydog is working on a donor package photo project with the intent of showing bully history from its game/family origins to today’s turning point between demonization and reinstatement as beloved, socially acceptable companions. They are looking for high quality, high resolution images that fall into the following categories:

-History/Vintage
-Mascots
-Entertainment/Media/Celebrities
-Pit Bull Smiles, Portraits
-Abuse/Fighting/Nature vs Nurture
-Social, Racial, Breed Profiling
-Other “Dangerous” Dog Breeds targeted in the past
-What is a Pit Bull? AmStaff, American Bulldog, APBT, etc.
-Breed Typing (other dogs mistaken for pit bulls)
-Fact vs Fiction
-Politics
-Rescue/Shelter/Euthanasia
-People and their bullies/Bonding
-Pit bulls at Play/Sport/Work
-Art
-The Future

Attached is a call-sheet to give you a general feel for the overall image they want to project. All due credit will be given as requested – this is totally nonprofit, a passion project with the sole mission to end the madness and pain! Email janets@stubbydog.org with questions or to send pix.

Our dog Maisy is the best Pitbull. She loves all dogs and people and is a bundle of energy! She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. We walk her everyday and try to get the word out that Pitbulls are not mean dogs. I hate that they get a bad rap and wish that more people had open minds in regards to Pitties.

Julie says:

I have amazing pictures of my purple ribbon APBT! I would love to send for this cause. But I am not sure how to do so. Please contact me with where to send the photo’s. He is a 7 1/2 month old pure breed, razors edge, purple ribbon brindle Pit Bull. He is the most gentle and loving dog I have EVER encountered. My husband and I are eager to help show that because 1 in 100 pit bulls may or may not bite or have an aggressive tendency it does not mean EVERY Pit is the same. It is all how you raise a dog. Any dog can be trained and raised to be mean.. I look forward to hearing from you!

I have a passion for pit bulls that is hard to put into words. Love the breed and yes, I do have one of the great exceptions. She was used for fighting in the earlier years of her life and abused. Then I had the opportunity and pleasure of getting her and proving that just because they have been mistreated and fought, they are good dogs and just want love like any other breed. She is now 11 years old and from day one has never given me any problems, maybe that’s because she feels the love I feel for her and know the history of her life. She is my Shadow Baby.
