WATCH WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A GROWLING PIT BULL IS SHOWN LOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME!

All the dogs that get written off as a "bad" dog were almost always previously abused, mistreated or neglected in some way. Pit Bull's in particular get a notoriously bad rap for being aggressive and hostile due to their potential to be trained by the wrong people and turned into fighting dogs. Because of this, many people fear them or avoid adopting them over other breeds and, as a result, there are quite a few sad and homeless Pit Bulls in the world. In Chicago, for example, Pit Bulls make up 40 percent of the animal shelter population and two-thirds of the dogs that are euthanized.

The dog in the accompanything photos and video is a prime example of one that has been mislabled by someone who didn't give it a chance to prove itself friendly. SHARE this article with your friends on Facebook as a reminder to keep an open mind when it comes to prematurely judging any person (or dog)!

He looks so happy to be touched! It's heartbreaking to think of how much this quick, low energy gesture means to him when it's safe betting that any loved dog experiences attention like that multiple times every day.
