Pit Bulls are magnificent, loyal animals who are often maligned and misunderstood.

I have had the pleasure of meeting two Pit Bulls, they are vigoursly controlled in Europe where I live and so are not often seen these days. Both these dogs were gentle, playful animal,both played happily with the dog I had at that time, a large Staffordshire Bull Terrier liberated from a fighting ring in the UK.

The truth is this breed is just one more in a long line of breeds given very bad press because of mistreatment by stupid, cruel humans. Train dogs to fight and expect them to be gentle? I don't think so.

Being a dog/cat lover, I have had encounters with the 'miniature' breeds with biting, growling and excessive barking (yapping). The large pitties are affectionate, loving and very loyal. If shown and given love, this breed like the many other ones in the past that were scorned, they too...will love back unconditionally. We owned Dobermans (growing up) in our family, they are an exceptionally great breed also. Thanks, Cher for this one.

Thank you Dear Cher...Sorry, DID NOT SEE YOUR SPECIAL NEWS at know some Pit bulls that are soooo loveable and take care of my cousins little babies...They are getting such a bad RAP....Kinda like German Shepards did also DOBIEs (UMMM I LOVE THEM...) all of the above three breeds that I have mentioned are kissable without a bite, and loveable to the extent that they will protect you to no end....but, if you do call them off, they stop. Only BAD OWNERS, NEVER BAD DOGS!!!! GRAN PAT!!! YEP....Will try to star you, but RIGHT ON!

I am "mom" to a 10 yr old pitbull. His litter mate crossed the rainbow bridge last year. Both were/are wonderful and I enjoyed having them. They are "mushes".

My son dog-sits a pit bull named Angel, who is beautiful in all ways.
It's never the breed - it's the owners.
Thank you for the article, Cher - noted.

Noted.. as someone who is not strong enough willed to own a pitbull... I will never have one but the ones that I see from time to time are always friendly and I have worked at a vet's office and a groomers and the only breed of dog that ever tried to attack me was a chichuaua sorry about the spelling.

I do love pitbulls. I have never met one who wasn't a sweetheart. For some reason, this gorgeous breed is the favoured dog of macho idiots , who encourage their dogs to be aggressive. It breaks my heart.
