I was afraid of Pit Bulls because of their bad rap, a friend from work talked me in to getting one. After a very short time I thought what did I get myself in too! She was six months old and not train. I have a male Border Collie who is so smart and obedent, so I was not use to this wild child. She would open doors and jump the fence and run after people. She loves kids so she would go across the street wanting to play with the kids there. I had to put up a 7 foot fence all around my house I have about five gates. It took some training and now she is very sweet and a 75 lb. baby. I have her loose when company comes over. Which is family. She has come along way and is loved and is part of the family. The only habit she has is that is hard to break is she will lick you to death. These dogs are not killers. It is the wrong people own them and starve them and beat them and abuse them, so they think everyone will harm them. I can go on for ever on this subject so I better stop for now. So Thank you for your time.
