Aaron, a proud Pit Bull dad, has always been aware of the stereotypes and prejudice surrounding his beloved breed. He wanted to help his dog, Gigi, socialize and make friends with other dogs. However, he often faced challenges in doing so, as people would avoid Gigi and not allow their dogs to play with her at the dog park. This was disheartening for Aaron, as he knew that Gigi was a friendly and loving dog. Despite the prejudice, Aaron never got frustrated or angry with people who avoided Gigi. He understood that they were going off of their beliefs without truly knowing him or his dog.

Instead, he decided to take matters into his own hands and create a space where Gigi and other Bully breeds could play and socialize without fear of judgment. Aaron was encouraged by people who reached out to him, suggesting he organize a meetup for Bully breeds. Excited and determined, he held the first-ever Bully breed meetup in San Diego. Gigi, initially unsure of what was happening, soon began wagging her tail and playing with the other dogs. Aaron felt a sense of accomplishment and happiness seeing Gigi and the other dogs enjoying themselves.

Following the success of the first meetup, Aaron continued to organize more events for Bully breeds in the San Diego area. He found joy in watching these dogs grow, find their comfort zones, and bond with their humans in a safe and welcoming environment.

Gigi’s journey began in January 2021 when Aaron adopted her as a companion for his older Labrador. The two dogs formed an immediate bond, but sadly, the older dog passed away in December of the same year. This loss was difficult for both Aaron and Gigi, as they grieved together and leaned on each other for support. Through this difficult time, their bond only grew stronger, and Gigi learned to trust Aaron more.

Aaron and Gigi’s story is an inspiring example of overcoming stereotypes and prejudice. Through determination, love, and understanding, they have managed to create a community where Bully breeds and their owners can come together, free from judgment and fear. By doing so, they are slowly changing the narrative surrounding Pit Bulls, showing the world that these dogs are just as loving and deserving of companionship as any other breed.
