Treat ‘Em Right Rescue is proud to host a showing of Beyond the Myth.

Beyond the Myth is a film about dog breeds commonly referred to as “pit bulls” and those who love and defend these dogs.  Viewers are taken on a journey to four U.S. cities where Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) focusing on “pit bulls” has profoundly impacted people and animals:  Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and San Francisco.

The documentary intelligently explores the contributing factors behind the public’s generalized fear of “pit bulls”, and explores the contributing factors behind the public’s generalized fear of “pit bulls”, and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of BSL.  It also investigates the myths associated with these breeds, challenges he idea that they are inherently vicious, and presents eye-opening research regarding the media’s role in influencing people’s opinion’s on dog attacks.
