American Pit Bull Terrier   (Pit Bull)

The American Pit Bull Terrier is a good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and affectionate family pet that is usually good with children as well as adults. This breed is almost always obedient, and is always eager to please its owner/s. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is full of vitality. As it is a terrier the American Pit Bull Terrier is highly protective of his owners and their property; it will fight an enemy to the death. It is usually very friendly, but has an ability to know when it needs to protect and when everything is okay. The American Pit Bull Terrier can be wilful with meek owners and needs a firm hand. They are generally okay with other pets if they are raised with them from puppy hood. The Pit bull is generally very friendly, but not recommended for most people, because most people do not understand how to properly raise and treat a dog. The American Pit Bull Terrier has a strong pleasure to please. Their natural aggressive tendencies are toward other dogs and animals, not people. However if they are properly socialized with a firm, but calm, confident, consistent pack leader, they will not even be aggressive with animals.
