If ever there was a breed of dog needing good publicity it's the Pit Bull. Whenever you hear a pit bull story it's always the bad stuff. Growing up it was the german shephard, then the doberman, then it was the rottweiler, now we focus on the Pit Bull. Since we always hear about the bad, here's a story that is good for a change. Equal billing right.
Elle is a 5 year old Pit Bull who was named the 2013 American Hero Dog of the Year by the American Humane Society. Elle works with middle schoolers in North Carolina. Students are given the opportunity to read out loud to her for 20 minutes, giving them the chance to practice reading and strengthing their confidence.
