Being a Responsible American Pit Bull Terrier Owner

By Nathaniel Muhammad

Happy New Year! Yes, a new year and a new decade are now upon us all. We all, I am sure have many New Year’s resolutions. As a proud owner of The American Pit Bull Terrier, one of our many New Year’s resolution is to become a more responsible owner of such a fantastic breed.

To start the New Year off on the right foot, I would like to highly recommend that you renew your dog’s license immediately! It doesn’t matter if your American Pit Bull Terrier stays inside your house or outside. It takes only a few minutes to apply and receive the license for your dog. One must be mindful that the dog’s license isn’t only a law; rather it is a protection for both your dog and yourself.

In the unfortunate event that your American Pit Bull Terrier has been lost or worst yet, stolen, the general public will be better able to assist in returning your dog to you. However, most importantly, having a license for your American Pit Bull Terrier is an excellent way to display to the general public and those who hate the breed for whatever reason(s), that you are truly a responsible owner of the world’s greatest breed of dog, the American Pit Bull Terrier.

Do not give “reasons” for the public to classify you as an irresponsible dog owner, simply by not taking a few minutes out of your day to register your American Pit Bull Terrier with your local municipality. “He who is faithful in the least shall be faithful in much.” That is a scripture from the Bible. I am in no way trying to give you a sermon. I will leave that up to your reverend, Minister or Pastor. However, the whole reason as to why I quoted that scripture from the Bible is just to highlight the importance of doing the little things well. Getting your American Pit Bull Terrier licensed is a very little thing to do yet it will help to prevent and alleviate many “problems” later down the road, which may be caused by people who are anti - American Pit Bull Terrier.

So all you proud American Pit Bull Terrier owners out there please go today and get your loved ones licensed. I wish you all a very productive and successful 2011!
