Pitbull have amazing temperament! That is why people buy them(loving people)They are one of the most tolerant, patient and gentle breeds. They can be
"game" towards other dogs or small animals but not people.(unless they are trained to be that way, it is not in their natural temperament) That is the same with most of the "Gladiator Dogs" They are known to have a very mellow temperament.,
The Pit was known at the
"Nanny Dog" for a long time in the US. It is easy to find info on this all over.
This is a good story that talks about how the dogs were The most reliable of any breed with children. It has some really cool photos from back in the 1900's too
This just goes into the "nanny" thing a little
