This was Mojo. 
Mojo was an APBT bought from a “good” breeder as an 8 week old puppy. He had UKC papers and was an attractive blue brindle and white (picture is bad, but he was truly a gorgeous dog).
Mojo was housebroken, knew sit, stay, and down, was good with other dogs, and even good with children. 
Mojo and I have a history. He was first owner surrendered to us because his owner’s apartment no longer allowed pit bulls. I remember after a long day with the “difficult” dogs I expected a large bully like him to be hard to walk and manage–nope, he sat for me to leash up him up and walked calmly around the shelter, sniffing other friendly dogs and ignoring the reactive dogs. I made sure to spend a lot of good time with this big sweet boy for the couple months he was there.
I was so happy when he was adopted, and surprised when he came back a month later because his owners were “moving”. 
It took another month, but he was adopted again to what seemed like a good home. He growled while playing tug, which anyone who knows jack shit about dogs is NOT an aggressive behavior, and was promptly returned because they didn’t want to take the chance of him being “an aggressive pit bull”. 
After yet another month and a half, he was adopted again. At this point I wasn’t hopeful. I was right not to be so. He was returned a month later because “the wife didn’t want dogs anymore” with a little cattle dog mix friend. 
Today, Mojo was euthanized. Yes, with his UKC papers, his training, and proof of being friendly with kids and other dogs. We ran out of space, and staff at this point didn’t think any adoption was going to work out, so they gave up on him. He was only 3 years old.
Don’t EVER feed me that utter bullshit that it’s okay to breed your dog because he’s got “good lines” or “papers”. The shelter doesn’t give a shit about your papers. People don’t give a shit about papers when it’s a pit bull type-to most people, a pit is a pit. 
Mojo’s death made me realize something today: People that can say it’s okay to breed pit bull types when they’re they account for 1/4 of all shelter euthanasias in the U.S. sicken me. Period. End of.
