People's opinion of pits are so sad. And honestly, most of the dogs that people report as being a "pitbull" are not... since that is not a real breed. American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, American Bull Terrier, American Bull Dog, etc... all of them and mixes as well as a whole bunch of other breeds get labelled a "pitbull." Any dog breed has a capacity for aggression to dogs and people, if not trained properly or is abused. You have to know the breed's history to determine type of training, often times the dogs bred for guarding like German Shepherds and Great Pyrenees will become territorially aggressive if not trained and socialized! It really comes down to humans being at fault, for not understanding how to take the necessary steps to have a healthy, happy, well adjusted and trained pet. And people who approach strange dogs and think it's ok to pat them on the head, or hug them, or lean over them from above and then are surprised when they get bit are the worst! there is a right way and a wrong way to approach a dog, and just because dogs "usually love" you doesn't mean every dog will. Always ask the owner, and approach the dog calmly with the back of your hand outstretched. If they appear nervous or fearful, don't pet them!! 90% of the time ANY dog bite is the human's fault.
