Pit Bull Awareness Day ! Each year , October 24th features a day of appreciation and education designed to change perceptions and stereotypes about bully breed dogs which are commonly referred to as " Pit bulls ". Dogs recognized as pit bulls are actually cross breeds of bulldogs and terriers like boxers , American bulldogs , bull terriers , etc . Pit bull terriers make-up the vast majority of dogs found in shelters . Arlington Animal Services recommends all pet owners educate themselves prior to adopting a dog of any breed . It is important to know their history , temperament , and any physical or mental requirements special to that dog . It is also important to socialize your dog appropriately so they can grow into a confident , well-adjusted adult dog without fear or anxiety .
