Sweet pit bull pictures that make your heart swell
Ah, the pit bull—one of the most lovable, yet misunderstood, dogs around. Pit bulls are known for their stocky and strong builds, athleticism and commitment to their owners; in fact, many consider them some of the most affectionate and loyal dogs around. And they’re more common than you think—pit bull–type dogs are estimated to make up about 20% of the total dog population in the United States.
It’s no secret, though, that the pit bull has a bad reputation. Pit bulls have often been described as aggressive, vicious and straight-up dangerous. You can find them on the restricted breed list for many rental properties, and several cities in the U.S. have pit bull bans and restrictions. However, as is the case with every dog, a pit bull’s behavior is influenced by several factors, not just its genetics. That’s why it’s crucial for pittie parents to properly train and socialize their pup and ensure they get plenty of daily exercise.
Take some time to educate yourself about pitties—and look at these precious pit bull pictures to see their sweet and goofy side shine through.
