Pit bulls are the most misunderstood and misrepresented breeds among the canines. But did you know that: Pit Bulls are commonly used as therapy dogs. Pit Bulls are used in Search and Rescue work, as well as narcotic and bomb sniffing dogs. Pit Bulls are great with kids. They weren't referred to as the "nanny's dog" for nothing, and Pete the Pup never bit any of the Little Rascals. Check out vintage posters from WWI and WWII...pit bulls were our nation's mascot, and Sgt. Stubby was a pit bull war hero. He was wounded in action twice, saved his entire platoon by warning them of a poison gas attack and he single handedly captured a German spy. Pit Bulls are not human aggressive, and score an 83.4% passing rate with the American Temperament Test Society, which is higher than many other breeds. Many times when a pit bill is reported to have attacked someone, the breed has actually been wrongly identified...Check out this site, http://www.pitbullsontheweb.com/petbull/findpit.html, and see if YOU can find the pit bull. And please check out this YouTube video that is attached, and think about it...How often do you hear about a person getting killed by any dog, let alone pit bulls, in comparison to how many children are killed by their own family members?
