I will admit that when my husband first suggested we get a pit puppy, I first said “Are you out of your mind?!” But I went online and found a lot website (including this one!). And we went and visited my husband’s friend’s dogs (he has three pits). We have two young boys in my house (7 and 3) and our puppy has been amazing with them. She might not just be a dog person – I never really thought of myself as one either, but I’ve fallen in love with our Tank! I hope things work out for you!
