This often misunderstood breed can actually become a loyal and lovable companion and family member.
American Pit Bull Terriers were voted #9 on the 2021 best dog breeds. The American Pit Bull breed is often used interchangeably with PitBull which is a term to categorize breeds such as the American BullDog, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and American PitBull. They often get a bad rap because of their origins as a fighting dog breed for sport. The truth is these dogs respond very well to nurturing and love. Once you look into the eyes of an American Pitbull you will see the depths of their love and loyalty.
One last rumor to clear up is that “Pitbulls have locking jaws” this is completely incorrect there is no “locking jaw” in the Pitbull breeds or any other dog breed. Thankfully people are better understanding this breed and it is surging again in popularity! If you are looking for an active, intelligent dog that will love you unconditionally consider opening your home to an American Pit Bull Terrier.
