Owners of Bully Breed Dogs Rally to Their Defense in Lexington

Nearly 300 turn out to attend the second annual Bully Breed Awareness Walk in downtown Lexington. The event, presented by PAWS: Promoting Animal Welfare and Services, a student-run organization from the University of Kentucky's Center for Community Outreach, is designed to raise awareness of breeds such as pit bulls and bulldogs, which organizers said are often mischaracterized as dangerous.
