Almost half of the dogs at the Pulaski County Humane Society are pit bulls
Pit bulls fill the cages at the Pulaski County Humane Society.
The humane society in Dublin is at maximum capacity with dogs right now, and almost half of its pups are pit bulls.
Employees say they don’t have any theories on why so many dogs of one breed have been dropped off at the humane society recently.
None of the dogs show signs of aggression or temperament issues, according to employees, but pit bulls are often a difficult sell to potential pet owners because of preconceived notions about the animals.
“Adopting a pit bull from a shelter is no different than adopting it from a breeder. They might have their issues, but not aggressive issues,” said humane society office manager Kelli Sparks.
All of the pups at the Pulaski County Humane Society are looking for forever homes or foster homes.
