    • like with all dogs it’s about
      like with all dogs it’s about you, not so much the dog, if it turns out to be a bad dog. pits have a bad rap that isn’t exactly true. yes there are some that are dangerous, but to say that all pits are bad or dangerous because of that is just stupid. pits are very affectionate towards people by nature. if you raise her right, treat her right, you won’t have anything to worry about and will have a great family pet

    • I want to first tell you that
      I want to first tell you that my name is Shane and I am the proud owner of an American Pitbull Terrier!! I would like to respond to your cry for advice on your situation, I have owned several pitbulls and please let me be the first one to tell you that the Pitbull meaning in your case Jazmin is not a vicious dog, it really comes down to how you raise your dog!! It is the publics stupidity to think and raise so much hell about the pitbull, because it’s not the breeds fault that they are given the title of being the most feared dog in america!! The truth of the matter is that the pitbull is one of the most loyal and family orientated dogs that there are, it is the stupid idiot owners out there that don’t need a dog because they are irresponsible and nevertheless don’t know how to properly train nor raise the pit!! My china my pit ok was brindle and was of the bully breed, she was the best dog that a owner could have be it a woman or a man she loved kids actually would let them pull on her ears sit on her etc, she loved to give affection to Senior Citizens and etc she was an all and all great dog!! I would advise you to not give a shit about what others tell you because it’s just that SHIT it doesn’t matter it is just a matter of opinion and it is actually the wrong one it is all about how you raise her !!!

  2. i have a 3 year old son, and
    i have a 3 year old son, and a pit bull and they are best buds. Pit bulls are very good with children (used to be called nanny dogs), especially small children who tend to play rough as pit bulls have a high pain tolerance. I highly doubt your dog will “bite someones face off” thats just something said by ignorant people who have no idea what they are talking about or any actual knowledge of the breed itself. Pit bulls love people and i dont think you have anything to worry about. Socialization and excercise are key. Thankyou for giving that dog a chance despite what you’ve heard. They are great dogs. No other breed can compare to them. Once you go pit you dont go back lol. also please spay or neuter the dog, it helps prevent any aggression in the “teen years” and prevents escapes during “mating season” not to mention unwanted pups. i hope you have many great years with your new family member! 🙂 If your still feeling anxious, read up on them and their history, they are great with people.

  3. oh you should also know that
    oh you should also know that the pit bull requires quite a bit more patience, time, training, and work than other dog breeds. BUT, they also give you alot more love and its totally worth it.

    Like with any other breed you have to socialzation and walk them daily.Just treat like a part of your family.
