Congrats on the nice lookin' pup.
I own two myself, and you will find that these are very intelligent dogs.
Pitbulls in general get a bad rap due to the fact that some morons train them to be mean.
Heck, you can train a poodle to be mean, it's all in the way they are raised.
F.Y.I. Did you know that Helen keller and Teddy Roosevelt had pits as pets.
As a matter of fact, back in the 1800's (before people gave pits a bad reputation)
their nickname was the "child's nurse maids" because people could leave their children at home with the family pit while they went into town,
knowing that the dog would protect their children.
Google "historical pitbulls" I think you'll be amazed what you will learn about this amazing breed.
Oh, by the way, don't believe the crap about them with cats either, if you socialize them with other animals, cats included, they will be fine with
As a matter of fact, our two play with our cat all the time, and my buddy's pit's best friend is a ferret!
I will have to read up on posting pics so I can show you our two babies.
Again, congrats on your new pup, but please, don't believe all the hype you hear about these amazing animals.
