Popular Dog Breeds: Pit Bulls

About the Pit Bull:

“In fact, “Pit Bull” isn’t a breed, but a term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”

Unfortunately Pit Bulls are usually thought of as dangerous and aggressive dogs.

Any incident that a dog is involved in is never the dogs fault it is only the fault of the person who is supposed to be in charge of the dog.

Why is the Pit Bull a popular dog breed?

People have created this negative stero-type of Pit Bulls and that is why Pit Bulls are commonly seen shelters.

Many people are kind and go to shelters to adopt Pit Bulls because they want to break that bad stero-type.

Did you know that Pit Bulls are actually banded from some countries?


“Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting. When those sports were deemed inhumane and became illegal 1835, dog-fighting sprung up in its place — and thus was the trait for dog aggression bred into the genetic line.” – http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/american-pit-bull-terrier#/slide/2
