Pitbulls are as Dangerous or as Loveable as Any Other Dog
by Krystal Maestas
I've always thought pit bulls were gentle creatures portrayed as the villains of the canine world (along with rottweilers). That is simply NOT TRUE. Dogs are just like people in a sense that their personalities are created based on the environment and treatment given to them at an early age.
Because pit bulls were once used purely for fighting, from the beginning of their life they were met with cruelty. Thus, when they grew up, cruelty and fighting were the only thing they knew and what kept them alive.
Its the same as with people. If people are brought into an abusive life, their personalities will be warped and that's how many of the criminals are born into society. This is the case for any type of dog, but pit bulls are always the ones the media focuses on because of the breed's history in dog fights.
My Uncle and my neighbors own pit bulls and they are the sweetest and most loveable dogs I've seen (other then my own of course). The only fear you have from them is that they will lick you to death. And the reason they are so sweet and gentle is because they were brought up RIGHT! They were not abused but loved and treated as any dog should be treated, not just as a pet but as a member of the FAMILY.
The same uncle who has a pit bull has a puppy he cannot keep due to himself being in the hospital. She is a blue nose pit bull and her name is Luna and my father and I are going to take her in. She is a sweet a beautiful baby and I plan to prove with her that pit bulls are not the monsters everyone sees them as, but sweet little creatures that are as loveable as a lab.
