I don't know what kind of info you are looking for, but my husband brought a stray one home several years ago. She has been abused and was in need of good home. She was, by far, the best dog we ever had. My daughters were toddlers at the time and I was very nervous because of the pit's horrible reputation. She was wonderful! I believe, as with any dog, it depends on the owner and how well each dog is socialized. We have always been a lab family, but with the wrong person, even America's #1 family dog can be aggressive and mean. Good luck!
I have never owned a full-blooded pit, however one of the best dogs that I ever owned was pit X boxer. She was loving, good with kids, patient and obedient. However, we did not take any chances and did extensive training with her. If you want the basics of the breed, you can visit the AKC website, they do have a lot of good information on every breed (without bias).
Definitely do your research about the breed...Like all bully breeds, if you give them an inch, they will take a mile, so be sure to start training right away! Use a training method like NILIF or something like it (I have heard it called the please and thank you method as well). I have a pit mix right now and she is the sweetest girl. Be sure to understand that people will not automatically accept your dog because of her breed...train her well, socialize her, and show people how great pits really can be with the proper owner! :)
He's your friend,your partner,your defender,your dog.You're his life,his love,his leader. He will be faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
hey pitbulls are feared by many people, and yes they were breed to fight, but if you train them at the ages when behavior starts which is 4-16 weeks, pitbulls can be the most loving animal. A good technique I have heard is the clicker method.. I heard about it in vet school.. and it seems like it really works good. Its the positve renforcement, which is very good! so if you want a pitbull go for it! just make sure that if it is a puppy to start training soon!
this is all great advice you are getting. i really don't have much else to add.if you get the chance read this good book about pits. it's called the working pit bull.it gives all breed specs about this breed that you need to know.
Omg! I have a pitbull and he is the sweeties dog in the whole wide world! He is energetic, alerts me to any strange things outside, great with all ages of people even babies and seniors, and just an over all great dog! I wouldnt have him any other way. The rep. for pits are pretty harsh but its all on how you train them as an owner. Treat them with respect and they treat you with some. Once they have your trust, you have a partner ship for life. Mine just recently showed me how much he loves me by saving me acually from a dog attack. This dog had a hold of my arm and shadow came running over, grabbed the dog and threw him off me, then kept him at bay while i had time to escape. I just cant tell you how much i love these dogs!!!!
