Like the term “canine racism,” canine profiling is used by pro-pit bulls groups to thrust the race card into the pit bull problem and to anthropomorphize it. Canine profiling, however, is a more recent term and likely arose after the hit movie Men in Black II (Frank the pug dog). Google Search shows that Bledy VanKarnage, then with the ASPCA, latches onto the term about a year later and institutionalizes it among pit nutters and pit bull advocacy groups. What began as a joke in a movie became critical pit bull propaganda.
