  • Yes I would. It's the owners that are bad, not the dog. But people like yourself and my son know that love can go a long way and you have a wonderful dog. No worse than any other dog if treated well.

  • I had one growing up, & he was always around a baby had just learned to crawl, he was soo loving with the kid. Half the time I felt bad for Alex *the dog* becuase the baby would chew on his ears & everything & he'd just stay there & let the child crawl & chew on him...

    I would own on in a heartbeat again if my hubby didn't have mean ass little dogs....

    Its all about how a dog is raised, not his breed.....

    for those wo wouldn't have one bc it can turn, ANY dog at ANY time can turn. its a chance you take when you choose to own a dog of ANY BREED

  • I had them growing up and none of them were ever mean or violent because they were not raised or taught that way. But I don't think it is a good idea to have young children around dogs because they don't know not to hit or pester them and ANY dog can get tired of being hurt by a child and snap... Scary stuff.

  • Tell you the true people always say that pit bull are bad breed and they well attack you lol. I think it how you treat him.

    Any dog that you mistreat will attack you in the attempt to escape from all the mistreatment.
    I always own pit bull I love that they are so loyal and they are there to protect me. Mine just pass way he was old already I was so upset. Now we own a American bull dog.
    Never had problems with my kid been around him. It's not like I would ever leave my son alone with any dog not only pit bull any.
    Any dog can attack .

  • I'd have one in a heartbeat. There are no bad breeds only bad owners.

  • Honestly, I wouldn't. Not because I think they are bad dogs, but because they just aren't the kind of dog I would want.

    Besides, I'm more of a cat person.

  • I would as long as I knew the breeder really well. I would also invest in some heavy-duty dog training programs because they are so strong. They are a very intelligent breed, I think they're adorable as well. It's unfortunate that people have used them in inhumane ways, the breed has received quite a bit of undeserved negative publicity. It really is about the owners and bloodlines.
