Pit bulls have a bad reputation. Some landlords won't allow tenants to have them, people move away when they see a pit being walked down the street--frankly, the breed has been discriminated against. I believe it's because of bad owners who have taught the dogs to be agressive, NOT because it is the nature of the dog.
Some of THE SWEETEST dogs I know are pits. I came across the story of Baby, the pit who rescued her family from a fire, and just HAD to share it.
Yay for Baby--for proving 'em wrong!!!
