Gator, Doodles, Sydney and Jet are American Pit Bull Terriers...
Some are rescues, and some have been raised around kids, but they have one thing in common: They've never bitten anyone.
Kristen Marion says, about her dog, Gator: "He will love you, he will kiss you, he will sit on you, he will lay on you but he WILL NOT bite you."
These pit bull lovers say the Breed Specific Legislation some Etowah City Council Members are proposing isn't fair to responsible owners, and well-behaved dogs.
Gator's owner and Etowah Resident, Kristin Marion,says she will move out of the city if it means protecting the rights of her pit bull.
"They did the same thing with Rotweilers back in the 90s, they did it with the German Shepherds, they done it with the Dobermans, it's just now they're actually being able to push it forward because people are so intimidated."
Marion was one of over a hundred owners that gathered for a march against the legislation Friday night...
These Pit Bull advocates say they just want the Mayor and Council members to learn the facts about the breed.
Marc Allyn, McMinn county resident and owner of Doodles and Sydney, says he's owned pit bulls for 30 years and described the breed as misunderstood.
Allyn says aggressive ones, like any dog, he says, result from negligence, even abuse, from the owner.
His eight year old granddaughter Courtney, he says has grown up around the dogs.
Courtney told me she feels safe playing around the Pitts. Her dad, Brian Allyn, says his daughter and Doodles were raised together and he's never been worried about her safety.
"They were the WWI WWII Mascots of the United States, saved more lives than any other animal, any other dog. And they were the Nanny dog. That's why they're called the Nanny dog because they were bred to take care of the family and kids," says Allyn.
"It's unfortunate they're being so specific and going after one breed. It's all about making the owner responsible," he says.
These Pit Bull enthusiasts say if anything, judge the owners, not the dogs.
