One central New York dog trainer is standing up for pit bulls after another dog trainer encouraged owners to turn them in for another breed.

Sal Piazza of Piazza's K-9 Services created controversy after posting on Facebook (since deleted) "Anyone who gives up their Pit Bull and gets another breed, we here at Piazza's K-9 Services Unlimited will train that dog free of charge." The post quickly went viral and prompted another dog trainer to offering free training.

Victoria Porter of Evolutionary K9 Academy in Richfield Springs is offering free training. For the rest of January and February anyone who has a pit bull or a breed similar can receive 2 free training sessions and half price after that.

"Racism and hate of any of the world's creatures are just not ok with us at Evolutionary K9 Academy. We love all dogs regardless of their breed, looks or behaviors."
