*These are my WONDERFUL Blue Amercian Pitbull terries, First picture is T-Bone, second is our female SAKI and the last one is PEPE* WE love our Dogs they are FAMILY*

*As we sat outside today playing with our dogs that we love OH so much, i thought i would take the time to put them in my daily challenge pictures*

My husband and I have been raising Amercian Pitbull Terriers going on since we have been together for 10years, and he and his family has raised them pratcially all his life, But it does bother me that they have SUCH A HORRIBLE REPUTATION. It is all on how you RAISE THEM!!

When discussing the temperament of the American Pitbull Terrier you have to talk about two categories: Responsible Owners, and Non Responsible Owners. The proper pitbull temperament is created by responsible owners. A well raised pit is said to be one of the most loyal, loving dog breeds. Pits can also be great with children. They tolerate children playing much better then other breeds. Remember though, these are the dogs that are raised by responsible owners. They are intelligent, easily trained, obedient, and they are eager to please their owners.

What the media misses in its coverage of the breed are the many positive aspects of owning a pitbull. The history alone tells you, if raised properly and handled with care and love a pitbull can be a wonderful pet.

The majority of the stories you hear on the news about pitbulls are those with irresponsible owners. The problem with the media's portrayal of the Pitbull terrier is the fact that they are grouping a variety of different dog breeds into one. The American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier are often included in these reports of bites or vicious behavior, when in fact they are not actually American Pitbull Terriers. This only adds fuel to a fire that continuously burns in the news.

I could go on and on about this post today, but i will leave it at this!! But Please never JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER NOR FUR
