If you look up verizon wireless pit bull ad it's still up.
But I don't understand how it's AGAINST pits...
I guess just because they made them junk yard dogs?
If they had rottweilers or dobermen people would probably be saying the same things...
Sigh..

I also never saw the ad, as I don't have TV, and it was pulled from YouTube before I saw it. I think the issue around stereotyping pit-bulls is mostly due to lack of education about the breed, and folks not caring enough to bother to find out. They don't realixe that dog attacks can occur with most breeds. Also that many factors go into a dog attack. They don't just attack for no reason. They don't just kill for no reason.
