    Off The Chain -- Everything You Never Knew About Pit Bulls

    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!
