Well, that would depend on who is telling me they own a pitbull.
I can't really say I react in any particular way. I've worked in a dog grooming salon and dealt with many pit bulls. They can be really great dogs if trained and treated properly. A pit bull doesn't automatically mean a bad dog. I've come across very bad dogs that weren't pit bulls, and had some damage done. Oddly enough I've never had any trouble from a pit bull. Any dog that is trained to fight, attack or just treated very badly can be extremely aggressive. Breed isn't everything, it does play a part but environment and training does too.
I would ask what color their dog was.i have a brown pit,a white pit,a brindle pit and 3 pit/boxer/chow/rottweiler mixes.i would not have any other breed.my husband and I have rescued 3 pits from abusive environments.Our dogs are extremely intelligent and loving.In my opinion little dogs are way more aggressive than larger breeds.
Well I get to see this reaction all of the time because I have pitbull! Pitbull-mix, and I've had many people say very mean things. However, we adopted her for this reason (among others, of course) to show people it's all in how you take care of them. We just get back from the dog park and played with a Shar-pei, boston terrier, and another dog about her size. They were all a little timid at first, but they put on quite the show and were very entertaining! There were also kids there. And guess what, they weren't attacked! I love my dog, she's napping from exhaustion now. I think people should be more accepting towards them as a breed. They are just like all others.
Unfortunately, this breed has acquired a bad rep. However, even though I realize a pit does not a bad dog make, I am bit intimidated by the breed. Pits are built like tanks, and thus, can inflict a lot of damage so if one does attack, the entire breed gets painted with the same brush.
Any dog raised in a loving environment can be a gentle dog; any dog raised in a hostile environment can react with fear or aggression.
The same way that I do with anyone that says they have a dog. I tell them I have newfoundland dogs.
