    Here is what is happening with pit bulls used by law enforcement. The dogs are cherry picked from shelters by Animal Farm Foundation (extreme pit bull advocacy with unlimited funds). The dogs receive a few weeks of training by a professional paid by AFF, The dogs are then given, free of charge, to cash-strapped police departments. Cities that can afford better, obtain bred-for-task dogs, frequently bred and trained in Europe. The traditional police dog has already been extensively trained before it even gets on the plane and gets another 14 weeks training with the new handler in the United States....

    Pit bulls have never had the best reputation in Montreal, or really in any other city. Especially over the last couple years there's been a lot of back and forth on whether or not a pit bull ban will be enforced in the city. After Valerie Plante was elected mayor, dog owners thought the fight was over as the pit bull ban was revoked. But, for the last few months Bill 128 has still been in talks, and it doesn't look good for the dogs. Despite the bad rep, there are still a few places in and around Montreal that...
