Pit bull owners in the country are trying to dispel the negative stigma attached to the breed following the public's outcry to have them banned.

A loving father and pit bull owner took to TikTok to post a video that captures the gentleness of one of his pit bulls. His son played with the dog and even hitched a short ride on the treasured family pet. He said:

"Hi guys, this is our dogs. We really love them, and there is nothing wrong with our dogs. The problem is with the owners. They are part of our family; our kids really love them, and they are friendly to our kids

Other pit bull owners shared that they agree with @maziyapitbul and that they also have kind and predictable pit bulls.

But most people were not budging in the comments section, saying that, hopefully, the family won't one day regret not surrendering the dogs to the SPCA.

Video of man running away from ‘playful’ pit bull has the people of Mzansi in stitches: “Molefe don’t run”

Briefly News reported that there is no denying that pit bulls are one of the most feared breeds of dogs in the world. So, when a man had one start chasing him, he was taking no chances.

While the negative stigma attached to the breed is slowly changing thanks to those who are now treating them with love and care, people are still hella weary.
