I am a personal injury/insurance lawyer in Morris County, NJ and I own a rescue male pitbull and a small breed female dog as well. My pitbull is sweet, gentle and well-mannered and gets along great with my small dog and is gentle with cats too. He often gets compliments when we walk in the park or on the street on how sweet and well-behaved he is. Unfortunately, shelters are filled with pitbulls and other bully breeds, who get passed over for adoption into normal families because of their undeserved reputation which is a byproduct of their popularity with a certain type of “macho-idiot” owners and irresponsible journalism. In fact, when raised in a stable, structured and responsible home, a pitbull is a friendly, gentle, loving, obedient, and eager to please companion.
