I love pits....have one of my own (brindle). She is the most affectionate dog I've seen...with people that is. With other dogs it's a whole other story. One day I was walking my dog off-leash around my apartment complex. She went up to another dog that was being walked....the other dog growled at my pit....my dog snapped and sent the other dog to the vet. Luckily the owner was a very understanding lady and wasn't one of those anti-pit people. I felt real bad and offered to pay for the bill. TRUST me....my dog will NEVER be off-leash again.

I've got 2 pure bread chocolate labs and 1 pure bread black lab, if you didn't notice i love my dogs, lol. I've always liked Pitbulls,labs, boxers, rotties, they are all really nice dogs and i've never met an unfriendly pitbull, by nature they are supposed to be like a boxer so silly and playful. I'd love to get one in the future, for the owners of pitbulls what would you suggest i do as far as checking out blood lines and so on.

The best way to go is to check out some reputable breeders. I favor breeders with kids because they seem to pay closer attension to temperment. You can check out many breeder near you on the web, when you find one that looks good, go give them a visit. Look for good living conditions, pay attension to the temperment of the ***** and sire of the litter, and get hands on with all the puppies. A really good breeder will ask you many questions to make sure their pup is going to a good home. Also, shop around, remember its a purchase youll be living with for the next 10 to 12 years.

Great pic bro! and beautiful dog!! I have 3 of them myself. All males.

I have never had any problems with pits. I have had 3 and the only thing that I notice is aggression towards other dogs.

I have 3 friends who have pits. They all have kids too. Never heard anything but how wonderful their dogs are. Dogs get bad raps in alot of cases. Alot of the dogs that scare people are actually some of the best. My cousin has a mean looking doberman but it is a big baby and really friendly. I have a golden retriever, which is anything but mean or scary. He's like having a big clumsy, happy, kid around.

I find that the smaller dogs are the more vicious ones, i had a ****apoo bite my one lab, and finally my dog had enough bite back and threw the thing, LMFAO!

My other pit, Gunny, i gave to my sister. She has four kids and cant imagine life without him now. He is the best dog they have ever had. My sister laughs about ever imagining having a 70lb pitbull as a beloved family member.

I have a 15 month old son and another 1 on the way in June and I have 3 pits. They let my son walk all over them, my sister on the other hand has a dalmatian that has bite her son twice already. Why she still has it I will never understand but anyway. Pits are in my option the best breed to have with kids because they love and would do anything for there family and can take anything that kids can dish out. Had to give my 2 cents when I seen talk of pits

The common myth about pitbulls is that it is an dangerous but the truth is that fighting breeds tend to be people/human friendly and animal(eg dog) aggressive because of selective breeding.
In any case, I would train children to always leave a dog's food/blankie/toys well alone and never pull whiskers/ears/tails or grope around maw. And never ever disturb a sleeping dog especially an old cranky dog.
It might be endearing to see dog treating infants as their own but it has some drawbacks. The problem is that dogs administer doggy discipline with a warning bite on the snout. A puppy has tough skin and fur but it might take out an eye and leave puncture wounds on a child face.
The point is that dogs deserve the same amount of respect another child would receive, and older dogs more so. The reason that dogs put up with annoying children is that the dog thinks its the omega dog at the bottom of the totem pole. Of course normal horseplay and roughhousing is something totally different.

Yah I agree the owners are what give pitbulls a bad name I have one and she’s very gentle. You have to know your dog and there is one thing I noticed about pit bulls and that is they are sensitive and maybe a little insecure. That’s a really bad profile for a guard dog, discipline is not the answer with this breed love is. Yes they need lots of affection and reassurance. Given a good loving home, a pitbull makes an excellent pet.
Do not go gentle into that good night...Rage! Rage! against the dying of the light!!

I too have owned Pittbulls and I loved them...in fact...I had to take a double look at that rednose in the pic...I had a male rednose just like that one with seal cut ears and everything...I learned something the easy way with both of my dogs...my dogs were there for me during a tough time in my life...we were kinda like a family...I purchased a new house with a big backyard and they were in heaven...they became very territorial (sp) and soon they were barking at anything that came close to my fence...at first I was glad they were guarding my stuff...then, I noticed them barking at children that were coming over to my house...not just barking...they were trying to eat them through the glass...this kinda scared me and I started watching them closer...the problem worsened over time...I never taught my dogs to be aggressive nor have I ever beat them or did anything to make them aggressive...they did this on their own...it goes with the breed..they are bred to be aggressive dogs and they were just that...I had to give them away to great homes and they are still treated like a perfect king and queen...for that I am grateful...however...they are not to be trusted around children no matter how cool they seem...they just wake up pissed off one day...check out some of the pittbull attacks on children on ogrish.com...this can happen to any child that is near a dog...dont leave it up to the dog to ruin your kids life...now ex wives...thats a whole other story.
