Don't let pit bull prejudice keep you from appreciating these cute canines. 

It's no secret that pit bulls have a bad rap. They're known for being used in illegal dog fighting rings, and with breed discrimination laws, many housing communities--and even whole cities--ban the breed altogether. But the truth is, the only scary thing about these square-faced canines is how incredibly adorable they are.

In an effort to end the stereotyping of this misunderstood dog breed, social media users have taken to Instagram to show off their #PitBullLove. The Instagram project is full of photographic evidence of the breed's terrifying tendency to melt hearts.

So go ahead, uncover your eyes. Let these 15 pit bulls prove just how adorable the breed really is.

Does this puppy's cuteness make you want to scream in glee? Yes, yes it does.

Blame the deed, not the breed.

Resist the cute, I dare you. 

Dirt don't hurt, and neither does this dog.

This face is pure evil. If by evil you mean adorable.

Pit bulls and pit bull mixes are judged, shunned, and stereotyped based on an image that was given to them by bad people doing a bad thing. As a result, animal shelters are overflowing with harmless pit bulls looking for families and places to call home.

To welcome one of these adorable, goofy, and good-natured dogs into you home, visit your local animal shelter. In the meantime, check out #PitBullLove to fall deeper in love with the breed.
