My family has had a few pitties over the years and they are the biggest babies. They were well trained but if you made them sad they gave these huge pouty faces and would give puppy cries. It's pretty ridiculous seeing this big dog on his back crying because the belly rubs stopped.
66 you do. #62 is completely right. Ever since I got my pit I've became an advocate for pit bulls. We also have two 20lbs dogs and they're 10 x meaner than he is. They've growled and bite people. My pit has never growled or had bitten anyone. He was raised around children. If he sees a kid he starts to cry cause he wants to run to them to meet/play with them. He even runs to check on a child if he hears one yell. The only thing that is hard to train him on is to get him to sleep at the foot of the bed. He only likes to sleep between my boyfriend and I, he thinks we'll leave if he doesn't have a paw or his head touching us. Any dog can be mad to be mean if that's how you let him. If our house got robbed my pit would be excited cause there will be a human to pet or keep him company.
direct quote from the ASPCA. "Todays’s pit bull is a descendant of the original English bull-baiting dog—a dog that was bred to bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head. When baiting large animals was outlawed in the 1800s, people turned instead to fighting their dogs against each other. These larger, slower bull-baiting dogs were crossed with smaller, quicker terriers to produce a more agile and athletic dog for fighting other dogs."
That's hilarious. Mine goes crazy when I get cheese out for anything. she's only had medicine in it once.
