It’s good when people can realize that…with a responsible, loving owner there’s really nothing to worry about as with ANY breed for that matter. I have met more mean German Shepards than any other breed, but I do not hold a grudge against the breed because I also have met friendly dogs. For the record I have never met an aggressive or mean pit, only loving face lickers! My neighbors actually love my dog, well all except for ONE! She’s just a huge bitch anyway.
