First of all, it is important to have all dogs spayed or neutered.

Pit Bulls are very strong but are a very popular breed because the rarely bite.
Pit Bulls are unpredictable and will attack other animals.....FALSE!

Pit Bulls always test high as one of the top 5 most stable dogs in the country. They are extremely patient and tolerant of children. Our Pit has been mobbed by 25 kindergarteners trying to pet her at once and her tail never stopped wagging.
Pit Bulls are easy to train.....TRUE!
Verbal training comes very quickly and easily for the Pit Bull. They are very sensitive and eager to please you so they learn very fast.

The bad reputation is caused by their owners. Poorly raised and abused animals will be aggressive and unpredictable. Dogs need attention, exercise, and love to be responsible members of your pack...please make sure you are ready before adding any animal to your family.
