The idea that pit bulls aren't friendly is one that Hello Bully founder Daisy Balawejde has worked for more than a decade to squash.
“When people meet pit bulls, they’re always like, ‘Oh my gosh, this one’s so nice,’" she said. “That’s the pit bull, that’s the actual dog.”
Hello Bully is a nonprofit rescue center that retrains pit bulls used in dog fighting and transforms them into family pets.
Balawejde started the rescue in 2005 and has recovered more than 1,500 dogs since then.
