No matter the breed, dogs are dogs. Those were the days where they were asked to be nannies and farm dogs. These days, they have been abused and oftentimes, abandoned. Call it improper training. According to Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer, It’s not about the breed, dogs are great companions. After all, why would they even be called a man’s best friend if they aren’t? Just like humans, each dog has its distinctive personality. There are those who are friendly and fun-loving. Meanwhile, there are those who sleep all day and do nothing at all. And there are those who do not even care to listen to their parents (human owners). Dogs are just being dogs. Whenever they are sad, they howl. If they’re mad and want to protect their owners, they fight back. It all boils down to how you take care and raise them. Humans have responsibilities – train them. This is where the key to maintain a good relationship with your pet comes in.

Each and everyone should be aware what pit bulls really are. Stop those negative feelings about these dogs. Although the government may have pit bull laws, but if you would be able to know one, you will probably may have change the way you look about them.
