I fail to see the reason anyone would want to own a pit. They were bred to bring down bulls. Seriously, who has a need for that?

The reason I own my dog is because I fail too see what a breed has to do with dog ownership. As I stated in my original reply "there are no bad dogs,
only bad dog owners". Any animal due to its living conditions can be unbehaved, violent, and aggressive, little dogs and big dogs alike.
I got my girl as a pup, I raised her from the first moment we were allowed to have her, after seperation from her mother, she was always loved always
treated as a friend, never struck, and her attitude reflects that upbringing.
I own her because she is the most loving animal I have had, her best friends are a small himilayan cat, a obease pug, and a 17# boston terrier. I own
here not cause she's a big, mean looking dog but because she is a beautiful animal with lots of love to give back.
You mention what their original breed was for, and yes we no longer need animals to take down bulls, we have cattle prongs and all sort of other
inhumane ways to fall them now. But I think you let the past use mislead you from what mother types of animals pits can be, how loyal and friendly
they are if treated with the same sort of loyalty and respect.
Maybe you have had a bad experience in the past, or you just fail to use your own sense of perception to guide your own thought, I feel if you were to
be in the presence of loved animals you would see that the general misconception of there breed is a long way off from what the dogs can be.
With an open mind you may as well see as I stated before that, "there are no bad dogs, only bad dog owners"
I own my dog because, I love her, she loves me and my family and friends, she is well behaved, and non aggressive. I love my dog cause she is like a
second mother to my child, I love and have my pit cause she is a dog like any other dog, and treated well she will remian just a dog regardless of
breed. I have a pit not for status or because I am a douchebag, but because I understand the animals and the way they behave. I have my pit because
I'm not afraid to give an animal a chance to have a great upbringing, loved bye all around her. I have my pit cause like any dog owner she's my dog
and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Ban bad dog owners, not breeds, cause just like people there are good and bad but they should never be lumped into one catagroy either way based on
