Does THIS look like a dog known for "its ability to fight"?!?!

Because apparently Merriam-Webster thinks so.

When you look up "pit bull" in the dictionary, it offers the following definition:

Pit bulls and pit bull lovers across the world are NOT happy about this newfound discovery.

"Why are you trying to stereotype us?" —these two, to the editor of the dictionary

I think we can all agree: Merriam-Webster's dictionary has some serious editing to get to.

(Not to mention its synonyms/related words entry.)

"Peace and harmony are our middle names." —these dogs

"Can you add something about how we promote interspecies acceptance?" —this guy, to the publisher of the dictionary

"I always hug it out, I don't know what these dictionary people are talking about." —this dog, in an official statement

"Well, OK, fine... One time we fought. I guess you could say it got pretty ugly." —these guys

Pull yourselves together, dictionary people.

And maybe reconsider that entry?!

"We can pretend it never even happened." —this cool dog
