Pitbulls: man's best friend, just another animal, or the enemy? Pitbulls are the most misunderstood breed of dog. American Pitbull Terrier — this is one of the many names of the Pitbull. Pitbulls have a bad reputation but not all pitbulls are as bad as people say. Because of all the negativity about pitbulls, people are scared of them. Pitbulls should not be judged before you get to know them. Pitbulls are now being put to sleep because of their bad reputation. And people who say that this breed is the worst breed a person could have has never had a pitbull as a pet.

Pitbulls mostly get their bad reputation from the way people treat them. An example is people using them for dog fighting. People also put these dogs on heavy chains, or even tow chains. This breed has a bad reputation because of the way people treat them. These dogs should not have the reputation that they do, but people are scared of this breed and are making the reputation worse. These dogs are treated terribly and that is why they turn.

Pitbulls are just like any other breed of dog. They play, they eat, they sleep, and they cuddle. These dogs just like any other dog can bite, but if you treat them right they will be loyal pets. People say that pitbulls bite down and shake their heads. This is true, but so do other breads such as German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and any other breed of dog. Even cats bite and shake their head to kill their prey. And wild animals bite and shake to kill their prey.

Pitbulls were known as nanny dogs because of how kind and protective they were of children. Pitbulls are still very protective and kind with kids. Pitbulls are sweet, loving dogs. People says that they are aggressive animals but the way you treat them has a big impact on how they act and how aggressive they are. If you treat the dog right and don’t abuse them then they will not be aggressive, but if you abuse the dog then they will be aggressive. Pitbulls are just like any other dog. If you treat them badly, they will be aggressive, but if you treat them well, they will be loyal, loving dogs. Aggression is not what an animal is born with. They are not born aggressive. They become aggressive because of the way you treat them.

There is a saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Well it is the same for animals. Get to know the dog before you judge them. Many people do not get to know pitbulls because of all the bad things they hear about them, but something they don’t hear are the good things about pitbulls. Pitbulls are great with babies and they are great guard dogs. Pitbulls have been put down and shamed for being bad dogs. Pitbulls are capable of being great pets. It’s all in the way you raise them. They are very loving animals if raised right. But they can be a very aggressive dogs if you do not raise them right, but so can any other dog. Pitbulls are said to be one of the worst breeds of dogs, but there is no evidence to back that up.

People say a lot of bad things about this breed. Being a person with a pitbull, I have only good things to say about the breed. I’ve had my pitbull for almost a year and I’ve been getting to know the breed for over three years. These dogs are not what everyone says they are. They are not monsters. They are loving animals that can be amazing pets. Pitbulls are very energetic dogs they love to play and run around. They are amazing animals that have a terrible reputation. These dogs are not bad dogs if treated right. They are great, amazing animals that will love you and be loyal. These dogs are not bad dogs. People should really get to know this breed before they judge and fear them.
