Letter to the Editor: Adopters should be careful with pit bulls

by | Dec 20, 2021 | Letter to Editor

We were surprised and concerned when reading the December 8th edition article “Devoted dogs seek new home.”

The adoptable dogs are two pit bulls weighing 50 and 90 pounds and came as an “owner surrender.”

We would hope that if the dogs are adopted no babies or children are in the home, and it should be advertised as such. There are too many stories about these type of dogs attacking and even killing babies/children.

— Marcia Chwalek, Hopkinton
