Beyond the Myth Film Screening Houston, TX
This screening of Beyond the Myth is hosted by Treat Em Right Rescue, a Houston based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of the American Pit Bull Terrier and other "bully" breeds.
Jagger, Treat Em Right Rescue's spokesdog, will be the special guest of honor at this screening. Jagger was confiscated from an officer involved in dog fighting ring in December 2010. Treat Em Right Rescue stepped up and took him in along with two others when their custody was released by the court in January 2011.

Beyond the Myth is about dog breeds commonly referred to as"pit bulls" and those who love these breeds. Viewers are taken on a journey to four
U.S. cities where Breed Specific Legislation focusing on "pit bulls" has profoundly impacted people and animals: Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and San Francisco.
The documentary intelligently explores the contributing factors behind the public's generalized fear of "pit bulls", and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of breed
discriminatory laws, commonly referred to as breed bans.
It investigates the myths associated with these breeds, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, presents eye-opening research regarding the media's role in influencing people's opinion on dog attacks.
