They believe they are bred to fight, they are aggressive and they are dangerous. But what happens when people meet pit bulls and spend some time with them is truly astounding.

They realize that pit bulls are actually wonderful dogs that do well with other animals and take on a very protective nature in the home, whether it’s with the kids, the cat or the rest of the family. They might even love you too much.
