For any of you Redditors out there this might be old news but we thought it was still important to share as much and as often as possible: pitbulls can be loving and gentle creatures and they used to be known as nanny dogs. That’s right-nanny dogs. They have gotten a bad rap through their use in dogfighting and selective breeding for aggressive traits thanks to certain humans who view such barbarism as a form of entertainment.
Each and every animal must be properly assessed for their personality and temperament and each and every person should research any breeds before adoption; please put thought into pet ownership. These (slightly less) furry critters want responsible and loving humans.
