“Pitbulls are ALL EVIL” /s
I appreciate your sarcasm. I have a pit cross that I got from a shelter abhout 6 1/2 years ago. She doesn’t know she is a dog, just a short person with a funny looking fur coat. She is absolutely the best dog I have ever owned and I would not hesitate to have another one. I have never seen her aggressive/protective side and don’t want to. She could be a formidable foe for someone if the situation dictated it. 60 pounds of muscle....red
I have no personal experience with owning a pit bull, but one of my neighbors had one. He was one of the nicest dogs I have ever met.
It’s my opinion that a dog is ultimately only as good or bad as its owner.
I have a couple cross pits too. (didn’t know it when I got them) Both are wonderful with the grand kids and other pets. Now, the wild pigs, raccoons and coyotes haven’t found them too friendly. :)
We have a Pit Bull too. Biggest love monkey ever, but mess with the kids and you get a warning growl.
He watches sentry when they play in the yard. Best dog ever.
I have a dog that’s half Pit Bull, quarter Rottweiler and quarter Great Pyrenees. He’s a big baby who constantly sits on my wife’s and daughter’s feet. I adopted him as a puppy so he could help protect my family when I’m not home. He has a real deep sounding bark that will make someone think twice before coming into the house.
Agreed. We adopted a rescue from our local Humane Society 3 years ago because our oldest, then 10, was absolutely petrified of all dogs, and we thought if we adopted one, she might generally improve, which she did, quite a bit. We ended up with a pit mix, very small, and not much pit in her (you can see it in her body shape and if you look straight at her face), but enough that the shelter made sure we lived in a town that allows them.
Anyway, she has the sweetest disposition I have ever seen in a dog. She has never snapped at our kids, never growled at a human with any sort of menace, loves our elderly cat, loves all people and loves other dogs even more. She’s very careful with hands etc during play and the only aggression we have ever seen was one snap at a larger dog at our local dog park last summer (it came at her from behind and above). I know she has defensive capabilities, she just hasn’t had need to express them, but I have no doubt that if she got a danger vibe from one of us, the person on the other end would be in serious hurt.
She’d be the perfect dog, if I could just break the burying instinct that rips holes in comforters and sheets...
WE NEED A PIC OF THE SWEETIE!!!
