Meet Sadie and Frank, our babies

Pit bulls have a bad rap, period. But how can you resist these faces? Pit bulls were once the all-american dog, as popular as Labrador retrievers are today. However, years of dog fighting and abuse have led to dreaded stereotypes -- including that pit bulls are ferocious man-eaters who will attack anything unprovoked. Of the 4 million shelter dogs put to sleep every year, nearly 1 million are pit bulls.

Our dogs deserve to win the cutest animal contest because they defy the stereotype and remind us why pit bulls are such an extraordinary breed. They are, in fact, huge lovers, and want nothing more than to cuddle on the couch. They pace outside of our bedroom door at 5 am every morning, hoping to find a warm spot before we get up and start our day. In this picture, they beg for a treat ever so politely, knowing that their faces will win us over every time. Help spread the love for this tarnished and forgotten breed.

Sadie and Frank are soooo sweet! My fiance and I have a pit bull (American Staffordshire Terrier) and she is the most lovable dog ever. Thank you for sharing!
