Overview

From king of the canine world to feared predator, the fact that the reputation of the American Pit Bull Terrier has so drastically shifted from friend to fearsome foe is seen by many as a telling statement regarding violence in America. Often considered a loyal and intelligent companion until its image was adopted as a symbol of power, violence, and aggression by those daring and greedy enough to exploit its vicious animal instincts, the pit bull's reputation has been forever tarnished by the underground subculture of pit bull fighting. In this documentary featuring actual footage of dog training, pit bull fights, and police raids, the tragic history of the pit bull is explored in graphic and revealing detail.

Off The Chain is the most accurate documentary on this topic I have seen to date. It does not sugarcoat yet also does not sensationalize. It portrays pit bulls accurately, as loving and gregarious family pets and as dogs aggressively trained to fight other dogs for the financial gain of their owners. Off The Chain is difficult for any humane individual to watch, but is necessary if you want to know the truth. And we need to know the truth in order to get legislators to pass laws giving sentences that match the horrific crimes perpetrated upon these dogs. Thank you for making this movie!
