Today’s National Pit Bull Awareness Month honoree is nomited by Celine Brotherton:
I would like to nominate Melanie Coy who writes for the Southeastern Missourian. Melanie has been a pit bull fancier for 29 years. She’s also been involved in obedience and other training and showing animals. Coy became involved in animal legislative issues in the mid-80s to dispel myths about the pit bull breed and fight against breed-specific laws. She advocates responsible dog ownership through training and educational programs, and helps shelters make dogs more adoptable.
On behalf of Bless the Bullys and The National Pit Bull Awareness Campaign, thank you, Melanie, for your hard work and dedication to pit bulls. Keep up the great work!
