easypeasy labs, goldens, GSDs, belgians, collies, beaucerons, airedales, hovawarts, bloodhounds, dobies and rotts. where's america's dog? why isn't the most athletic, most popular, people pleasing, loyal, most versatile breed represented here?

i looked, but the only pit bulls i could find in the 911 rubble were wrapped in old glory and posing next to lady liberty. convicted felon KRIS CRAWFORD carefully placed this image at the beginning of her shameless pit bull propaganda training film titled Heroes - A Tribute to SAR Dogs. thief/con artist KRIS CRAWFORD tries to manipulate people into thinking pit bulls were involved in the 911 rescue efforts and thus improve their image. KRIS CRAWFORD no doubt also hopes to personally profit from her misleading video by duping the gullible.

KRIS CRAWFORD has a history of stealing and lying and has a criminal record to prove it.
one of KRIS CRAWFORD'S victims and vocal critic writes: "Animal Farm Foundation has received several emails, and calls. Jane Berkey said this was, essentially, people just out to ruin Kris, and it did not matter what she did, it was more important what the pit bull community reaped from her (purported) activities."
DIANE JESSUP defends CRAWFORD, "I don't know Kris that well (I've met her once) but I admire very much the extensive, extremely positive PR she and her search and rescue dogs have given the pit bull breed."
in the words of TIA TORRES, "Kris will end up killing or hurting someone physically." (p 16)
and in the words of DONNA REYNOLDS, "Sad business. Many of us have known about Kris' problem for years, but kept it quiet because it didn't seem to be causing anyone any real harm. Unfortunately, people were getting hurt beyond losing a few dollars." (p 26)

it's sad business that so many in the pit bull community are not only willing to overlook CRAWFORD'S criminal activity but also aid and abet her because she is an advocate for the breed.
