There are a lot of comments stating that pit bulls are not family dogs and that they are very dangerous. The truth is that EVERY breed of dog can be deemed dangerous at one point. Is it the dogs fault? Should ALL of the breed be considered dangerous and be banned in a lot of places like the pit bull? NO! There are no "bad dogs" just bad owners. The ONLY reason pit bulls have such a bad reputation is because they are the NO.1 choice for dog fighters. It has been proven, by many temperament tests, that this is mainly because the pit bull is very loyal to its owner. You want a cold hard fact??? Here's one for ya: "According to the American Canine Temperament Testing Association, 82.5%of the American Pit Bull Terriers that took the temperament test passed, compared to a 77% passing rate for all breeds on average." And also: "Pit Bulls have achieved the fourth highest passing rate of all 122 breeds tested." Don't believe me??? Look it up. You can find these and other facts on
and also on
. Don't go by what other people say. Just because people say that pit bulls and other breeds of dogs are more dangerous than others. I have owned pit bulls all my life...the pit i have now and my 2 year old daughter have basically grown up together. We got our pit about a month before my daughter was born and she never once acted aggressive toward any of us and neither have the other pits we have had. They were all just as lovable as can be. Our pit even sleeps beside my daughter's crib whenever she sleeps and any time she falls asleep on the couch or something, our pit curls up next to her. I can't find the article right now, but there was a case not long ago about a couple who left their baby in her crib while they went to make her bottle. They also left their dog, a pomeranian, in the room with her. The couple heard the baby screaming, so they ran in. Before they could get in the room in time, the dog had already jumped in the baby's crib and bit her face off and killed her instantly. A POMERANIAN!!!!! Do research before you say something next time please. And don't just focus on all the negative things you read about pit bulls.
