Pit Bulls are an often misunderstood breed because of their strong physique and history of poor treatment. These dogs are commonly believed to be aggressive watchdogs when their true temperament is the complete opposite. Pitbulls are sweet, gentle dogs that make excellent family pets. They love to play and have fun, and with proper care, would never have a reason to hurt the humans in their life. In fact, Pitbulls are frequently referred to as "nanny dogs" because of how great they are with kids. Once you get to know a Pitbull, you'll find that they are a perfect addition to your family.
