Ive owned pitbulls my entire life, and never owned one that was any bit aggressive, and would never ever harm anyone.. I've had them around peoples small children-- pulling their ears, poking their eyes, pulling their lips, and skin never once did anything but walk away.. wouldnt even push a kid over.. Why? Because I am one hell of a trainer I suppose.. and because I teach my dogs to respect people- I do not baby my dogs.. I treat them like dogs not like spoiled children-- that's where you get into trouble with a dog biting. My dogs are very well disciplined and socialized.
My friends have told me 'i wouldnt let my kid around an ankle biter but I completely trust my kid around your pitbull'
I used to take my 90 pound male pitbull with me everywhere with out a leash on.. he loved people. I thought it was kinda funny when theyd go 'oh my god that's a pitbull!' congratulations caption obvious- take note as to how he's not 'ripping your face off'
People against pitbulls are always the ones who have never owned, been around the breed at all, and just speculate from what theyve heard on the news.
If you tried to do me some kind of harm- yes my dog will protect his master because he's loyal not vicious. My hubby would protect me too.. he's no 'ticking time bomb' either, lol. (Totally not my hubbys 'master' either, lol.. point is- a loyal person will also protect you)
