Ethnographic interviews were conducted with pit bull owners to explore how they experience and manage breed stigma. Names of pit bull owners were obtained from two shelters in large eastern Massachusetts cities. The forty most recent pit bull adopters from each shelter were sent a letter describing this study. Of this group, a total of 28 owners were interviewed. Except for one pilot interview, all participants had adopted a pit bull within the past year and a half. They lived in cities and suburbs throughout the central and northeast part of the state as well as in southern New Hampshire. The vast majority of respondents were Caucasian, between the ages of 20 and 50. Both blue and white collar professions were represented, although the former were more common than the latter.

More common, they claimed, was a sense that strangers were fearful or apprehensive. Most respondents, for example, could recall situations in which people on the street tried to avoid their dogs, either by walking around them or by crossing the street. One owner who lives just outside Boston in a city with a prominent pit bull population said, that in the morning when he walks [his dog], sometimes he crosses paths......to continue reading this article please click on here...
