DENVER (CBS4) — After a three-decades-long ban, pit bulls are now allowed to be adopted in Denver, under a breed-restricted permit. To celebrate, the Dumb Friends League is hosting a “Pittie Party” this week.

People adopting a pit bull from the DDFL this week will get half off the adoption fee (for pit bulls one-year-old and older,) a pittie parent t-shirt, a KONG toy and Hills Pet Nutrition treats.
