I had a beautiful pure breed cocker spaniel once. Most gorgeous dog you'll ever meet. But she had mental problems up the wazzu. She would snap at the littlest thing and bite out of the blue. Eventually she was rushed to the vets with a bad stomach ache one day, turned out to be an obstruction. She was sent to surgery but didn't come through. Something about reacting to the anesthesia or something.
Point being, she looked like a sweet harmless little curly fluff ball but wasn't at all that. Don't assume that a dog is what they look like. They could be very different underneath that exterior. Take that dog you pictured. He looks like the sweetest most lovable dog in the world.
In fact, APBT were once considered to be the all american family dog. They are great with kids, love to play and loyal as can be. Then, when bear baiting and other gory activities like that were being banned, people, and I use that term loosely here, looked towards the pit bull for its sturdy body and big muscular head and powerful bite. They saw that they could throw two of them together and they would deal a lot of carnage. Then those stupid thugs started in on it and the poor pit bull lost all its good reputation to these savage murdering beasts that were "training" the poor dears to fight.
