Ever since the first time I met a Pit Bull, I was in love. They are just gorgeous dogs with such an awesome personality. It's no wonder that they are such a popular breed of dog today. Then again, they are also sadly an unpopular breed among many...
National Pit Bull Awareness Day began in 2007 and is "a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about pit bulls and their responsible owners. NPBAD was established to educate and foster positive communications and experiences in the communities in which we and our dogs live, and it is an initiative dedicated to restoring the image of the American Pit Bull Terrier", according to NationalPitBullAwarenessDay.org.
So are you wondering where I got my totally awesome Pit Bull pride shirt from yet? The shirt is from a company called Dog City & Co. They have created some pretty nifty products for pet lovers including T-shirts, totes, canvas prints, pillows, and much more. Many of their products are breed specific, in fact.

My dog bone earrings are from For Love of a Dog Jewelry.
When offered the chance to review one of the T-shirts, I was excited to find several Pit Bull items on the Dog City & Co. website. Here's the link to the shirt I am wearing in my photos. You can find more Pit Bull items from Dog City & Co. here. And if Pit Bulls aren't "your breed", there are many other breeds to choose from.
I was pleasantly surprised while reading more about Dog City & Co. to see that the owners are "proud pet parents" to a rescued Pit Bull named "The Squanch". The company donates a portion of every sale to animal rescues and also works directly with pet rescues to help them raise money for their efforts.
And on top of being a charitable company, Dog City & Co. also manufactures all of their products in the USA with American-made materials and eco-friendly inks whenever possible.
The shirt that I received is very comfortable and is good quality. The dog on the shirt actually looks just like Shiner, except her eye color patch is on the other side of her face. I had to do a double take when I first saw the shirt because I thought it WAS Shiner...

Here's to hoping that everyone enjoys National Pit Bull Awareness Day! I'll be enjoying mine in my new T-shirt with my very own Pit Bull by my side.
