I may have to slightly disagree with the only bred for killing thing,

Quote:
In America, farmers and ranchers used their APBTs for protection, as catch dogs for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt, and to drive livestock.[6] The dog was used during World War I and World War II as a way of delivering messages on the battlefield.
I doubt many breeders would say they're breeding for killing (jackasses maybe), but most that legitimately breed do so to further the health and temperament of the breed. Look at the Shar Pei's, "chinese fighting dog", same realm as a pit bull and it doesn't have the same nasty reputation but still bred originally to kill. My TFT is a member of the fox hunting.... the little dog can't smell out or track anything and just barks at the wind. It wasn't bred to hunt foxes, it was bred for better health.

I think bullies are sweet dogs but do agree that not everyone should be owning them. I love them from my experience and ironically one of the only breeds that my kiddo ISN'T afraid of, but I'd never own one myself. I have a fear of owning an animal that if it got out of my control that I wouldn't have the strength to stop it.

Quote:
The essential characteristics of the American Pit Bull Terrier are strength, confidence, and zest for life. This breed is eager to please and brimming over with enthusiasm. APBTs make excellent family companions and have always been noted for their love of children. Because most APBTs exhibit some level of dog aggression and because of its powerful physique, the APBT requires an owner who will carefully socialize and obedience train the dog. The breed’s natural agility makes it one of the most capable canine climbers so good fencing is a must for this breed. The APBT is not the best choice for a guard dog since they are extremely friendly, even with strangers. Aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed and highly undesirable. This breed does very well in performance events because of its high level of intelligence and its willingness to work.
Sounds like a real killer.

Seriously, Pitbulls are the sweetest/cutest dogs I have ever been with.

I was bit in the face once by a lab. I must have tugged at his ear too hard because it was extremely uncharacteristic of the dog. My fault.
