Pit Bull Terriers as Pets - Yes or No - and most importantly - WHY, especially if you answered yes?


I personally am against having Pit Bulls as pets (especially for a family with children) for the very simple reason of “instinctive trait”. Pit Bulls were selected and groomed to be fighting dogs based on traits that were identified years ago by men interested in engaging in Dog Fighting. This is not a new practice as some breeds have been identified by certain traits that make a certain dog ideal for guarding and herding livestock. My rational is, if you get bit by a Sheltie, it will probably be in the hand or lower leg; if you get bit by a Pit, it will be in the chest/neck/head area.
