The Pit Bull, APBT is often referred to as an Amstaff. This breed is known for being friendly and is often an energetic dog that loves kids and attention. Although this medium-sized dog is not always aggressive, he has a fearsome reputation because of his background as a fighting dog. We have seen this breed get a bad name because of their past in dog fighting. To this day people still illegally fight these dogs and place bets. This breed is not often bred as a guard dog because it is often friendly with people, however if trained can become a good guard dog. this breed can be a wonderful family companion.
American Pit Bull Terriers were once an iconic American breed. They were American military mascots, advertising stars, and popular farm and family dogs. But when dog fighters criminally exploited the breed’s loyalty, tenacity and bold nature, the Pittie’s reputation took a hit from which it hasn’t yet recovered.
The Pitbull tend to have a bad reputation, however when in the hands of loving owners and given the right amount of socialization, training, attention and love, they can be a great affectionate family dog.
Unfortunately, people who have Pit Bulls may face restrictions on where they can live or which homeowner’s insurance they can purchase.
Pit Bulls can be highly people oriented, but they don’t necessarily like other small animals because of their past in being bred to initially hunt vermin and dog fighting. Some Pit Bulls may become friends with other dogs or cats in the household and seem to love every dog they meet, but they arguably are not typical of the breed. If you would like a dog with no stigmas attached and you can peacefully take to the dog park then a pitbull is not for you.
The Pitbull typically weighs 60 pounds or less, and is very muscular. Pitbulls are powerful dogs and can be a challenge to walk on a normal leash at times, they are also known to break their dog collars or leashes because of their shear power.
A Pit Bull’s grooming needs are simple. Their coat needs brushing a couple of times a week to help manage shedding, and his ears need to be kept clean and his nails trimmed.
