That's totally normal. It's a powerful breed that has been over abused in the past.
Pit bulls are ***** cats compared to some dog breeds. Dogo Argentino, Caucasian Ovcharka, tosa inus, fila braselieros. The fila braseliero is the only dog breed where the judge is not allowed to touch the dog AT ALL. That is how they should be around strangers. Dogos and Filas can and will kill jaguars in their native lands, the cat with the most powerful bite force. Filas are left to babysit young children in Brazil. Intensely loyal dogs. Tosa Inu used to be the "pit bulls" of Japan, bred to fight for entertainment. These are huge powerful dogs. The difference is that these are rare breeds, and NO breeder would sell them to an idiot who can't handle one. I feel like this is how pit bulls should be treated. Sadly, there are so many, and mixes of them, that this really isn't possible without serious action from the government. And I doubt the government is going to go through all this just so people can have a dog they want. Until dog fighting stops completely, there isn't much hope, since they will continue to be bred for aggressiveness. Many once aggressive breeds, like Dobies, have been bred down back to calm family pets to be more welcome in the modern day. I think breeders of pure registered pits should (and I'm sure they all do) have this as their main focus. :/
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
