Cesar Millan, probably best known as the Dog Whisperer, takes on the cultural perceptions and myths about pit bulls in his latest Nat Geo Wild special Love My Pit Bull.

Pit bulls were once a very respected breed for their strength and loyalty. President Theodore Roosevelt owned pits. So did General George Patton and Helen Keller. But their image has been perverted over the years by gangs and dogfighters who encouraged and bred their more volitile tendancies and instilled in most people a fear that a pit bull was just waiting to attack and kill.

Cesar, a lover of all breeds of dogs, puts forth the ideas that we as a society need to stop fearing pit bulls but instead encourage better training, of both dogs and humans, to get a handle on the image and the reality of these dogs, and bring them back to being well loved instead of revilled.

He also takes time in this special to examine the legislation being pushed in some parts of the country to ban ownership of pit bulls.

All in all, Love My Pit Bull is an interesting hour about a breed of dog you may know little about. Catch it on Nat Geo Wild on April 18th.
