Pit bulls are “just like any other dog” is a phrase mainly trumpeted by animal groups connected to Ledy VanKavage (aka “Bledy VanKarnage”), such as Best Friends Animal Society (lobbyist) and Animal Farm Foundation (board member). Unlike a similar phrase used by the same groups, “all dogs are individuals,” the slogan, pit bulls are “just like any other dog,” is a complete denial of the existence of breed traits. This false myth winds up killing an untold number of family pets each year (due to pit bull dog aggression), and seriously injuring and killing innocent people (due to the breed’s “hold and shake” bite style). These two influential groups deliberately created the slogan to disseminate to their Nutter followers — strategic disinformation.

As scientific study and research continues to prove that “pit bull” dogs are just like any other dog, we’re now facing a different, equally challenging, hurdle: proving that “pit bull” dog owners are just like any other dog owner. – Animal Farm Foundation (Fat chance given their “human kill rate” and antisocial owners!)
Well-matched dogs not only love this work, but their presence out in public amongst people and other animals helps advance the idea that AFF works so hard on — that pit bull type dogs are just dogs like any others– nothing different, nothing unique. – Animal Farm Foundation
