Yeah, I totally agree that not always is a pit bull the right dog for you. There's very few people that have virtually every dog as the 'right dog', but there's also virtually no people that have NO dog as the 'right dog'
Pit bulls stubborn? Well I've found mine is, but at least he wants to please. Shasta's the other way, he is the most docile dog you'll ever meet, he learned "circle" in less than 10min, and he can do pretty much any trick you want him to... but he doesn't want to please all the time, if there's a big open field or another animal, he would MUCH rather chase them than try to please me... =\ That's just how he is though.
Every dog, even within it's own breed-standards, is going to be different. I'm sure there are TONS of pit bulls who are total opposite of stubborn, and I'm also sure there are probably tons of Border Collies out there who ARE stubborn, lol! [haven't met a stubborn one yet, I did meet a really really dumb one though (yeah, world's smartest breed - and nobody told him, lol!)]
For God so loves the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have everlasting life!
