My dog is the biggest sweet heart and never hurt anyone. How can people be so blind and hateful?

I try and pass this education as much as possible but with some people they are so stuck in there ways they do not even hear you. That is the frustrating part. There have been a few responses on here that were insulting to say the least. I do not appreciate your opinions... especially sense I did not aske for them... in fact I asked you not to give them. I try to make my dog an ambassador but I just find it hard with the stereotypes. It just gets tiring. I just want to see some change. Again thank you all for your kind words.
