A star NFL player spends the day (3/26) encouraging responsible dog ownership, all for a good cause.
Former FSU linebacker and Philadelphia Eagles Star Ernie Sims hosted his 2nd annual pit bull fun show along with his 4th annual car and truck show.
Training demos, agility contests and other fun motivational activities helped show a side of the Pit Bull breed that Sims says is usually misunderstood.
Sims also says,"Over the years pit bulls have gotten a bad rep because of the society we live in. I just wanted to start this to give the community a pit bull awareness. And let them know that pit bulls are not as fierce and mean as people think they are."
Both events benefit Sims Charity, BIG HITS, which helps to instill tools for Success to help at risk youth and promote animal humanity.
