Hello, I am writing to correct an error in your "Babe: Pig in the City" review.

Despite what I understand to be Universal's own information, the dog who plays PB is a registered Bull Terrier (bred in Australia) and not a "Pit Bull" as you state. The Pit Bull is not even related to the Bull Terrier --the Bull Terrier breed dates back to England in 1812 and is a cross between the Bull Dog and the now extinct White Terrier. Given the public panic that often accompanies Pit Bull sensationalism in the media, it is a true disservice to the Bull Terrier to misrepresent the breed in this fasion.

Bull Terrier breeders around the world are known to take extreme care in breeding selectively for non-agressive behavior and for personally placing their pups in approved homes only. In addition, Bull Terrier people have spent a great deal of time trying to educate the public as to the difference between the two breeds and my fear is that this movie, and the misinformation surrounding the actual breed of P.B., will negate a lot of genuine and honest effort.

I hope I can count on you to correct the information found in your review.

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,

Your name here.
