My hubby and I decided to try and get homeowners Ins for our house instead of just reg Ins. Well the guy from the Ins agency comes out to look at our house. He was happy with all the updates we had done to the house but he wasnt happy about our pool. And then he saw our dog. He says"Is that what I think that Is?" I am like ummm its our dog. We tell him that yes he is a pit bull but very friendly. The man even walks up to him and pets him. Then he tells us that the ins company doesnt like pits that they are on the dangerous breeds list and we will have to pay extra if we want to keep him and we have to sign a paper saying that if the dog bits anybody the ins company is not responsible.I am like WTH. Ok first off what does the dog have to do with home owners ins and secondly NO I am not getting rid of my dog. Has anyone ever heard of this?

Pit bulls are actually bred to be affectionate towards people.
Pit bulls have been bred for hundreds of years for strength, agility, high pain tolerance and absence of aggression toward humans. Because they were traditionally fighting dogs and most were also family pets, the dogs required extensive handling. So even though they were bred to be aggressive towards other dogs, aggression toward humans has never been tolerated.
