Pit bulls are a breed of dog that are no stranger to controversy. They are banned in the UK, and parts of Canada. The Grennan Family is here to dispel the stigma against Pit Bulls. Owners of a dog training business called Dark Dynasty K9s, Marlon and Lisa Grennan are owners of a 175-pound Pit Bull named Hulk. He’s very intimidating in appearance; however, he is anything but in nature. He loves kids, playing in the snow, and a good petting. Marlon and Lisa’s three-year-old son, Jordan, loves Hulk like a brother (as he should!). The couple completely trusts their dog with their son. He’s been closely trained by the couple, and they believe he would never attack without a reason (as the myth with Pit Bulls demonstrates).
“I don’t think it is irresponsible at all for people to have pit bulls around their children, they’re dogs like any other dog,” Lisa says. “No matter what the breed, it’s all completely on how you raise them.”
The most shocking thing about this whole thing, is that Hulk is only 17 months (not even two yet!). He is expected to grow for another two years. Imagine owning a 250-pound Pit Bull? That is one dog (no matter the breed) that we would not want to mess with. Animal Fair Media is about breed equality, and we’re happy to see that this family is working to give back this breed’s good name.
