The Pit Bull is an exceptional breed that requires exceptional dedication and ownership. These dogs are not people-haters. Their pugnacious tendencies which are natural to the terrier can tend to be towards other dogs and animals. This comes from centuries of breeding. It is a historical fact that these dogs were originally bred for fighting. It has also been noted numerous times the one quality that was never bred into them was human aggression.
Even during their fighting hay days human aggression was not tolerated. While it is understood that yes, some of these dogs do indeed bite people. They are not representatives of an entire breed of canine. In other words, while 20 dogs out of 5,000 may bite, that doesn't mean the other 4,980, will. Any dog of any breed has the propensity to bite. Any dog of any breed needs proper training and supervision.
The Pit Bull possesses a tenacious athletic ability, loyalty, intelligence, and high energy. These dogs are not lap dogs (though many think they are) or a dog for the lazy person. In doing the research for this article the following are attributes that I found touted over and over again:
