SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Spokane woman who owns pit bulls says she wants other pit bull owners to start being more responsible.
This comes after a pit bull attacked a little girl last Thursday, then two pit bulls had to be shot and killed by law enforcement.
Kris Standford is the founder of “Responsabully”, a pit bull rescue and education group. She said she is mad at what she has seen on the news lately concerning the breed.
“If you’re going to own a bully breed, know what they’re capable of doing, or you’re going to ruin it for everybody,” said Standford.
Standford formed 501C3 to educate pit bull owners. The group met for the first time Wednesday.
She said being a responsible pit bull owner means doing things like locking the dog up properly, having a strong enough leash when you walk them and being sure they can be around children.
Standford said it is the little things that can pose the biggest danger.
