The American Kennel Club has long ranked the Labrador Retriever as the most popular dog in the country with Chihuahuas coming in a close second. Recently, third place was filled by the American Pit Bull Terrier, which even took the #1 slot in Rhode Island. According to a National Geographic survey, 30% of dogs in shelters are labelled as pit bulls and 86.7% of those dogs end up being euthanized. The Animal Farm Foundation in Bangall, NY is taking a different approach to pit bull adoption by treating every dog on a case by case basis and using training methods that bring out their family-friendly charm.
