    I own 2, and my son own one. Very loving and loyal dogs. Pit-bulls get a bad rap.

    my best friend has 2 of them, and has had 2 litters of puppies. they are very good dogs, quite loyal and loving. they are very protective tho, and if u do not have sufficient room for him to run and time to give a lot of attention. if you do, i'd def take that dog. here are some pictures of my buddy's dogs.


    this is Chance (stud), Major (pup), Karma (bitch)
    Chance and Karma live with him the other pup's were sold to mostly friends so we still get to see them regularly.




    this is Jade, she's from the second litter. if i had the room for more then my lab i would have taken her. i love that dog

    I personally have never had one, but I think they are beautiful dogs if they are taken care of properly. Here in Ohio they actually made it illegal to own a pitbull in certain areas, I don't remember right off hand what areas but it was on the news a few months ago. I just think it's a shame that because of a couple of bad cases surrounding these animals,that the entire breed gets a bad name because of it. I would say go for it, for $75 you could end up with a friend for life.

    Like Cesar Millan says it's not the dogs that are the problem it's the owners! It's a shame pit bulls get the rap they do because of bad owners!

    Never owned one but have friends that do. They are very loyal dogs. They will protect what is theirs though. My buddies girlfriend was wrestling with him and the dog thought she was hurting him. I thought it was gonna jump on her. Fortunate my friend calmed him right down. My german shepherd was the same way so it is not breed specific. It is the morons (like Mike Vic) who make these dogs have a bad rap. Also make sure you know where it was bred. Inbreeding can cause severe problems with these dogs.

    I would say go for it! I've heard bad stories, but (as people have said) it's the owners' fault.

    Ageed! My buddy has 3 dobermans. I think they get a bad rap too. His first one, Zeus, is HUGE and intimidating, but he's the biggest pansy you've ever seen!

    pittbulls are great dogs. ive had one pure breed and one pitbull/rotee mix. both were very smart and loved to eat spagetti off a fork. its all how u rais them that is going to decide how they act. if u train them to be a killer then thats what there going to be. if u show them love and care then they will be the best dog u can ask for.
