My favorite dog breed is the american pit bull terrier. Of course I'm biased because I have these dogs and I have had them for a long time. With the right genetics and socialization, they are wonderful & loving family dogs.
I have a large family- my parents, me (i'm 15), my younger siblings ages 12, 5, 3 and 1, and 2 cats. They do well in our chaotic environment. My older dog is an APBT who is 14 years old. My other is a 7 year old APBT/Staffordshire bull terrier mix (the term pit bull describes both of those breeds, but "pit bull" isnt an actual breed.)
I have had them both for 7 years and they are my favorite. They are sweet, loving, playful and cuddly all in one. They are very enthusiastic about everything and have hilarious hyper moments of running around with their butts tucked down! The only thing dangerous about my dogs are their tails- you don't want whacked in the face with a pit bull's hard tail! LOL I realize that not all dogs- and not all dogs of this breed are this way. But I have met many loving pit bulls at the no kill shelter I volunteer at. It sickens me to see the way they are misunderstood by society and how jerks raise some of them to be. All I can do is have true APBTs and Staffys to lead an example of how america's family dog can be. :)
Here is DeeOhJee, the 7 year old. (APBT/staffy)
And the 14 year old... This picture is from 6 months ago. His health has rapidly declined since and he doesn't looks this good anymore. He has cancer and catarax. :((
Sorry I couldn't choose between my babies <3
