American Pit Bull Terrier Dogs

American Pit Bull Terriers are affectionate, loyal and happy dogs with loads of energy and a natural eagerness to please their guardians. This breed has sadly gotten a bad reputation in the media due to owners who raise them for the wrong reasons. With proper socialization and training, as with any dog, your American Pit Bull Terrier can be an exemplary member of the family.

What They Are Like to Live With

They love to play fetch, go for runs and accomplish tasks - American Pit Bull Terriers are natural workers, excelling in agility trials, search-and-rescue and obedience trials. Keep them busy and loaded with positive reinforcement, and they’ll continually surprise you with an upbeat and steady temperament.

Things You Should Know

American Pit Bull Terriers may sometimes display protective or competitive instincts around other dogs and animals. They are strong enough to handle rough play from a child, but strangers and unfamiliar dogs can sometimes trigger their suspicions.

A thick, powerful neck slopes down to a broad, powerful chest, muscular legs that seem always ready to dart forward, and long tapered tails. American Pit Bull Terriers can come in just about any color.

Talk About American Pit Bull Terriers  Loyal and very smart

My favorite breed is the American Pit Bull Terrier. I have had these dogs for over 20 years and they have always been loyal and smart. I live on a farm and they get along well with my horses, cats and other dogs. They are not for everyone though as most strong breeds aren't. They need to have a gentle but assertive owner. Pit Bulls need to be socialized and obedience trained and loved! They need to be in your house loved not chained in some back yard! They were wonderful with my children and have very stable temperaments. I volunteer at the Indianapolis Animal Shelter and see wonderful do...
