Pit Bulls: Are They Misunderstood?

Many people think of pit bulls as dangerous, overly aggressive and not an ideal family pet. Is this true?

According to the experts, pit bulls are not inherently dangerous. Like any other dog, they can become violent, aggressive, and mean through a lack of training, abuse, neglect, and irresponsible ownership and breeding.

Your Turn . . .

Do you think pit bulls can be a good family pet?

    Pit Bulls are wonderful loving dogs. Just like any other thing on earth. Be animal or human. They are what you make them…. My son has an amazing pit bull and he has loved both of their children from birth. He is part of the family… As should be. In the house, INCLUDED, NOT left alone in the yard on the end of a chain with no life to look forward to.
    Remember. Change the world. Love and Kindness.

    Put bulls are loving dogs. Your more in danger of being loved to death by a pit bull. There can be dangerous dogs in any breed. I have fostered several pit bulls. Biggest problem was they all thought they were lap dogs. They usually weigh 45-50 lbs or more. Not exactly lap dogs but they don’t know that!
