What you need to know about American Pitbull Terrier

Despite the common opinion about the American Pitbull Terrier being vicious and blood-thirsty, this breed is very friendly and reliable. Once used for dog fights, Pitbull Terriers of today are very communicative and playful. It took great efforts of devoted breeders to get rid of the aggression typical of the ancestors of modern Pitbull Terriers. A well-bred and properly trained Pitbull Terrier kept together with the family is a funny and merry companion with no hint of viciousness. This breed retains its energy, power and spirit to battle with other dogs, but attacking people is not typical of the Pitbull Terrier.

These dogs like to use their strong jaws and teeth on things, which may be considered as signs of aggression by people who don’t know the breed. When the American Pitbull Terrier displays destructive behavior, it means that the dog needs to burn off its energy. When kept indoors and taken for short walks only, these dogs may become nervous and destructive. Such behavior is typical of all dog breeds, but in a case of the American Pitbull Terrier, the consequences may be serious.

Many people cannot believe that a large and powerful dog with a fierce appearance can be reliable. Irresponsible breeders and unknowledgeable owners add to the problems by encouraging aggression in their dogs and not giving them proper training and socialization. Not any purebred American Pitbull Terrier should be bred. Only high-quality dogs that meet the requirements of the standard and possess stable personality and good health can produce high-quality puppies. The problem of dog overpopulation is acute nowadays mainly because of poorly bred dogs that are surrendered to rescues. While smaller homeless pets can find new families, large and potentially dangerous breeds like the American Pitbull Terrier are rarely available for adoption.

There is no reason to be prejudiced against Pitbull Terriers to the greater extent than against any other breed. A poorly bred and unsocialized dog of any breed is potentially dangerous. The American Pitbull Terrier is just a victim of ignorant people who don’t want to forget about the original function of the breed.
