Question: Can American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) be Service Animals?


Despite the stigma attached to the Pit Bull, they do make excellent Service Dogs. They are large enough and strong enough to pull a wheelchair, as well as offer physical support for those with balance or mobility issues.

Their loyal, dedicated, and intuitive nature makes them a natural for offering emotional or physical comfort for those individuals with psychological or psychiatric conditions like PTSD, depression, or social anxieties.

The American Pit Bull can also be trained to be a Medical Alert Service Dog. These animals respond to various health issues such as low blood sugar, oncoming seizures, or low oxygen levels. They can also be trained to remind people to take their medications.

Service dogs are entitled to public access rights with their handler. This means that you and your service dog can go anywhere that you are allowed to go - like office buildings, stores, no-pet apartments.

If you think a Pit Bull is a breed that will work best for your disability, be sure to seek out a reputable breeder or rescue organization. Get all the information you can on the specific dog, then go to work training it up in the ways of service.

You will be happy you did.

Directly from the Delta Air Lines Web Site

Please be advised that Delta Airlines (and many others following suit) are changing their policies regarding service and support animal. Also, effective July 10, 2018, each customer will be limited to one emotional support animal.

Additionally, they are no longer accepting Pit Bull type dogs as Service Animals or Emotional Support Animals.

On Delta flights, service and support animals are expected to be seated in the floor space below a passenger's seat or seated in a passenger's lap. Service and support animals and their associated items travel for free. The size of the animal must not exceed the "footprint" of the passenger's seat. Remember - This Excludes Pit Bulls!!!!!


Delta Airlines will ban all 'pit bull type' service and support dogs from flights.

Delta Airlines, acting in response to two employees being bitten last week and the mauling of a passenger on a plane last year, has issued a blanket ban on both emotional support and service dogs that are classified as 'pit bull type' beginning July 10, 2018.

Both dogs in the Delta cases were emotional support dogs, not service dogs, which have a higher level of training. People with service dogs also have protections under the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act, allowing them to take their trained dogs into areas other animals would not normally be permitted, such as restaurants and airplane cabins.

Delta spokesman Ashton Kang said the airlines are regulated under the Air Carrier Access Act, which gives them the right to "exclude animals that are too large or heavy to be accommodated in the cabin; pose a direct threat to the health or safety of other; cause a significant disruption of cabin service or are prohibited from entering a foreign country."

The ACAA currently contains language indicating service animals must be trained to behave appropriately in public and can be removed or restricted if they pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others or cause significant disruption," Bicker said. "This is breed discrimination based on visual assessment of an unskilled airline representative pressured to make a quick pre-board assessment.

While the veterans can choose other carriers, if those airlines follow suit, the vets could find themselves grounded.

In a statement issued by Delta, the airline attributed the change to an increase in incidents with support animals. The ban is part of a crackdown the airline began in March to root out fake service and support animals.

According to the statement, the ban, which comes as the peak summer travel season is underway, is "the direct result of growing safety concerns following recent incidents in which several employees were bitten." is now a Non-Profit company. We have been working hard this past fall - and got all the required paperwork completed to become a NON-Proft company. (Our tax status with the IRS has been filed and from what we understand it may take several months to get approved by them. However, it states that while we are in the process of getting our letters back - all individuals that have donated funds to us will be included in the write-off.

Our mission is to provide help, assistance, and education for the public related to Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals. We are asking our member to donate monies ($5 or $10 or maybe even $1,000 to our fund so we can help those in need to get a membership with our company.

So, by donating $65 to us, we will use that money to pay for someone that is in need and does not have the funds to register. We will pick the most needy people, who may be less fortunate than us. Most of these people, through no fault of their own, end up in a shelter, living without a home - and don't know where their next meal may come from. It is almost impossible for those to afford the cost of our package. But, how do we ask them to give up their dog - who has stood by their side - no matter what.

You probably can afford that next meal - maybe a trip to Aruba or Tahiti -- Perhaps you don't think twice about buying that StarBucks coffee every morning - but many of our members - can't afford or don't know where they will get their next meal, let alone pay for a registration to make their dog a Service Animal.

Think about it!!! -- Think about not knowing - How would you feel if you got put in that position and now you have to decide between youself --- and your most trusted -- dog. Would you give him up? "Not a chance!!" Right?

Thanks for your support!!! Thanks for helping!!! Blessed are the meek....

The American Pit Bull Terrier is one of the so-called bully breeds often labeled a pit bull. In fact, "pit bull" isn't a breed, but a term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Some people say the American Pit Bull Terrier is the same as the American Staffordshire Terrier. Others, just as forcefully, say they're entirely different breeds.

But all experts can agree that the confusion started with a decision by the AKC in the early 1930s to give it a new name, American Staffordshire Terrier, to separate it from its pit-fighting past. The American Pit Bull Terrier has not been recognized by the AKC, while the American Staffordshire Terrier, which is slightly smaller, has been. The bull breeds are often grossly misunderstood. The qualities that make these dogs tenacious players in obedience and agility games also attract highly unscrupulous people looking for strong competitors for their dog fighting rings. The sorry result is that bull breeds, in particular the APBT, have gained a reputation over recent years for being dangerous.

Nothing could be further from the truth. But rampant misinformation and fear caused by the actions of a minority of dogs kept by criminally negligent people have provoked legislation against the breed in a number of cities and countries around the world. As the owner of an American Pit Bull Terrier you must be aware that you may be met with anger and hostility by people who are misinformed about your wonderful dog.

This is not a breed for everyone, especially those who aren't willing to invest time in training and socialization and can't or won't provide consistent firm guidance. When raised with the proper training and socialization, the American Pit Bull Terrier makes an excellent companion for children. He is loving and gentle with people and often makes a lousy guard dog because of his tail-wagging eagerness to greet the person at the door.

American Pit Bull Terriers are devoted and loyal to their family and will, if necessary, defend them to the death. These dogs are extremely intelligent and learn commands and tricks with ease. They have a zest for life and love to be involved in everything going on around them. They maintain a puppyish demeanor well into adulthood, and that vitality makes them a joy to live with. Once you have met and gotten to know this breed you will wonder how you ever lived without one.
