Deirdre Franklin, who performs as Little Darling, thinks it's no accident that her fellow burlesque dancers and pinup models feel a kinship with pit bulls.
“They're people who chose to be on the outside and do it their way, who are used to being the underdog,” she told the Associated Press. “They identify with the pitbull — they want to change the stereotype.”
With her Pinups for Pitbulls calendar she hopes to change that sterotype and raise more than $10,000 raised to support pit bull rescue.
