Police departments are adopting pit bulls instead of buying expensive shepherds

Police departments, cutting down on the costs of their K9 units, are adopting pit bulls from shelters and are training them.

Pit bulls have always been associated with a stigma. The breed is unfairly looked over due to the wrongly presented idea of their uncontrollable rage.
Protect pit bulls from BSL is one of the organizations working to change the negative reputation that encircles this glorious, loving, and magnificent breed.



In 2016, the mayor of Montreal, Quebec banned pit bulls in response to the death of 55-year-old who was mauled by a pit bull in her back yard. However, the ban was later on lifted since further examination proved that the ban was unfair.



The obedience and anger or a dog are not defined by the breed. Training and discipline have a huge role to play. Keeping this in mind, and under the pressure of cutting the expenses of their K9 units, police departments are now adopting abandoned pit bulls from the shelter and training them.



On average, a police dog can cost anywhere between $10,000 to $15,000. These are usually German Shepherds or Belgian Malinois. That’s pretty expensive.



Pit bulls not only cost less than the regular police dogs, but they are also proving to be amazing police dogs.



Pit bulls are strong and obedient.



For now, three police departments in the US are adopting pit bulls, so they don’t have to be euthanized.



The best part is more and more police departments are starting to agree that pit bulls are good police dogs as they’ve already begun adopting pit bulls as their K9 of choice.
