I am one of THOSE pit bull owners that thinks my pit, Jack, would never harm another living soul. In fact he is the sweetest most docile dog I have ever had. I have had him hide under my skirt when a car backfired and he has let me take chicken bones out of his mouth without any kind of complaint. Is this nature vs. nurture? I don't know, But I HATE it when he gets lumped in with the ideas of vicious pits. I have a baby. Because of the nature of the breed (turning unexpectedly) I do not allow them in the same room together alone. Once a day or so, I hold my baby and slowly let them get to know each other. Ya know why? I am realistic. I think people are too quick to judge these great dogs and I think owners need to not be in denial if they are going to own this type of breed. What do you think?

ANY dog can turn on someone not just pitts....I was a pitt owner for many years and raised them, I never had any problems with them and I think they are GREAT dogs! I just read an article about pitts in history, they were considers "nanny" dogs and many families had them to help watch over their children. I only had 1 child when I raised pitts but I never worried about them and him being alone around each other.
