The truth about pit bulls, is that they are actually kissbulls. I also refer to them as wigglebutts and smiley dogs. I have never met a pit bull I didn't like.
I'm a proud mother of two pit pups and they are like children to me. I have never had such loving, people-friendly and snuggly dogs. Together, we walk, run, play, snuggle, act as couch potatoes and sleep. They love nothing more than being with their people.
Stop spreading hatred people, especially those who have never even owned a pit. Enough of the ridiculous sensationalized news stories...how about some of the good images of pits--with their families and working as therapy dogs or polics dogs.
They are a wonderful breed, and kinder and gentler than most people I know.
You should write a hub about this, it would make a good topic!
I have.. ;-) A bunch of them. With the title "The Truth About American Pit Bull Terriers" being one of them.
Snowgirl, if you write about the breed, make sure to do so in an unbiased mannor, as you can't deny any of the allegations of their attacks or the possibility that one can occur if the dog is untrained and unsocialized. I will admit that, and I, too, am an advocate of the breed.
We aren't saying that require the same exact training, as one cannot even train a retriever the same as a chihuahua. We are stating that by training and socializing a dog of a bully breed status, you will have a better balanced dog. No one stated anything about how to train or socialize them. We are referring to in general, training and socializing.

Took my 3 doggies (a mini doxie and two chihuahuas) to the dog park this afternoon for their 4th of July celebration. Was there for about an hour with all of the dogs (about 30 of them, big and small) having a great time. Then the pitbulls started coming. One pit came in through the gate with his...

7 year old Tanner Monk was killed by 2 pit bulls in Texas last week. Another sad tale in the long history of pit bulls. I just had to write a completely factual hub about pit bulls and their history. Tanners death is no joke, what is a joke is not having laws banning these menaces...
