The photos are tasteful but revealing and they reflect the same sense of fun and bold innocence that we admire in our dogs. We're proud to say that, freckles and all, pit bull owners have nothing to hide.

About BAD RAP Exposed: Donna Reynolds, executive director explains, "Pit bull owners with loving pets endure a surprising amount of criticism for owning these dogs. Our calendar was created as a humorous response to breed myths and intense public scrutiny. The photos are tasteful but revealing and they reflect the same sense of fun and bold innocence that we admire in our dogs. We're proud to say that, freckles and all, pit bull owners have nothing to hide."

Photographed by portrait artist Anne Truitt, the calendar photos will be displayed as part of a larger juried art show, attracting art lovers and pit bull supporters from around CA. The Tuff Love Art Show will provide a uniquely personal vision of Pit Bulls from the artists who have come to know the breed as both subjects for their work and as companion animals.

Proceeds from the event will benefit BAD RAP, a Bay Area 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The mission of BAD RAP is to secure the future of the American Pit Bull Terrier as a cherished family companion.
