KENT, Wash. Pit bulls showed of their talents during the second annual Pit Bulls on Parade in Kent on Saturday.

Organizer Amanda Hoffman says this is a celebration of the breed, which she describes as athletic, intelligent and a little goofy. As for the dog's bad reputation, Hoffman says the dogs are a reflection of their owners.

We'd like to call them plastic dogs. They'll kind of mold into whatever you want them to be. If you want them to be a bad dog, they'll do that to make you happy. If you want them to be a good dog, they'll do that to make you happy as well, she said.

Bullseye Dog Rescue has pit bulls available for adoption.
