Some dog breeds like pit bulls get a bad rap because of negative stereotypes, and as we all know, they're more false than true. Freelance Illustrator Laura Palumbo pokes fun at some of the associations when it comes to some dog breeds with her series of minimalist illustrations.

"Many people I know say they would like to have a dog, but they exclude Dobermanns, Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and so many other breeds from the start, because there’s still a belief that they are too aggressive," Palumbo told Bored Panda. "I think it’s true that every breed has different traits but with correct education, every dog can be suitable with kids. I believe that dogs are what their humans are."

This is my favorite because I run a rescue with my aunt and we rehabilitate bully breeds and we really want to show their sweet side

I have the most rad 1 year old pure bred chi. He's easy going, loves people, loves other dogs, is super inquisitive, loves swimming and is the most independent puppy I've ever known! He's unlike most Chi's and for it, I am so grateful. I couldn't imagine him being a little asshole.
