In this article you will learn the basics about Pitbulls including why they have gained such a nasty reputation and what the real truth is.

As odd as it sounds, the thing that pops first in my head is peoples' reactions to the word. I'm not afraid of the breed at all as I'm sure everyone here is not either. But thanks to the good folks at the media, now most of the uneducated public now has the stigma.

But keep in mind, the bad rap isn't always necessarily bad. Let's say an unwanted solicitor comes knocking which they do in my neighborhood from time to time. They hear the barking of a couple of "dangerous" pitbulls, that's enough to make them turn & leave rather quickly.

i just read the article.
it does not address any myths or state any facts concerning aggression. such as breed temperament rating. or statistics related to frequency of dog bites/attacks.
while i appreciate advocacy for the breed. i would much rather see a well-researched, educated article from a person who has first hand experience. the fear of bull breeds is irrational and based on the human emotional response. a rational and logical explanation is the only way to dispel myths and change stereotypes.

how is this author an authority on bull breeds? how is she qualified to write and share "what the real truth is"?

Good points Joe. I wonder that as well. What are the qualifications that deem her able to tell her "truth"

roxieyap is an unknown quantity at this point
I have to admit that I used to be "one of those people" who were swayed by the bad publicity about pitbull. But when my boyfriend introduced me to the breed, I've come to love them ever since. I am glad that more and more people are being educated about pitbulls.

You can teach any breed to be 'bad'.
But all that does is reflect on the owner....
Be proud of your pet, have it be an honor,
For you to be able to take them with you, with no worries...
