StubbyDog is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) transmedia organization that’s focused on changing public perceptions of pit bulls and dismantling the associated stereotypical thinking.
We develop and disseminate emotionally resonant and entertaining content, showing pit bulls as the loyal and loving dogs they are.
We recognize the good work already being done by humane organizations to rescue abused pit bulls, lobby against discriminatory legislation, and shut down dog-fighting operations.
We also recognize that people are still afraid of pit bulls, and that this fear is based largely on rumors and sensationalized reports, which lead to the same kind of irrational stereotyping and prejudice that’s found in any other form of discrimination.
That’s why a new approach is needed – one that recognizes and celebrates the amazing qualities of these dogs as heroes, therapy dogs, fun loving companions and devoted family pets.
