From a bad reputation to a given chance
Pit Bulls are extremely strong and powerful dogs that have great intelligence. They love children and wanna be their protectors. Their reputation for being dangerous comes from the fact that these dogs were used in dog fighting rings in which they are brought up by criminals who teach them aggressive behavior. They’re a kind of dog that is often found in kennels and pounds simply because too many people are afraid to give them a chance as a pet in their own home, preferring something with a less intimidating appearance and reputation.

Pits shown in a different light

Give them some space
They don’t do well in homes without a nearby park their owners are willing to walk them to, at least once a day, or at least a big backyard in which they can run around and enjoy their time off the leash and out of the house.
