Got a special place in your heart for a pit bull? You’re not alone. Those square-headed beasts have a bad rap, to be sure, but plenty of pitty lovers are putty in the paws of the misunderstood pets. At the third annual Rock-A-Bully, you’ll get a chance to meet up with champions of the breed — as well as plenty of breed champions, too. From 1 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Sue Ellen’s, 3014 Throckmorton St., pit bull fans will gather for live music from Fish Fry Bingo, Mojo Dolls, Kickback, Barefoot Hippies and Bandmates, plus a doggy pageant at 3:45 p.m. and a pet first aid demonstration at 4 p.m. At 4:30 p.m., keynote speaker Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss will speak about his experiences with his beloved breed, dispelling myths and even taking part in a Q&A session. Your $10 suggested donation benefits Animal Rescue of Texas and DFW Rescue Me. Dogs are welcome to accompany their humans; find more information at rockabullyevent.com.
