Pit Bulls have a terrible and unfounded reputation of being some ferocious beasts that would jump at your jugular the moment they get the opportunity. They are ferocious looking to be sure, with their muscular bodies and the snout that sheds fear in your bones.
But when given the chance, a true, unprejudiced chance, then you will be convinced that that Pit Bull Terrier dogs are no different than you average Labrador or Husky. As a matter of fact, you could even say that a Chihuahua is more menacing than a Pit Bull.
When given the love and respect they deserve (first and foremost) as living beings, you will see that a Pit Bull dog can be as gentle as a teddy bear, capable of so much love and understanding. The only bad side about keeping a Pit Bull as pet might be their tendency to constantly ask for attention!
Check out this family Pit, for example. Gemma the Pit Bull tries her best to win over her human brother Elliott while he plays learning games on the family’s iPad. She definitely wants all the attention!
It is videos like these that bring hope in the hearts of people that Pit Bulls are actually amazing with kids. They can be so good with children, that you can probably leave them alone in a busy park and no one will be able to approach your child, because the dog will take excellent care of them. Pit Bulls are very protective of their owners, so having one as a family guard dog is probably the best idea you just had!
