Pit bulls are often feared, as they are labeled dangerous, vicious, and unpredictable. This, however, is far from the truth. Pit bulls used to be the #1 family dog. People such as President Woodrow Wilson, President Theodore Roosevelt, General George S. Patton, Helen Keller, and the list goes on, all owned pit bulls! Take a look for yourself! Follow this link to learn the history of pit bulls and learn the truth about some huge myths!

This is my pit bull, Roxy. We're not sure if she's purebred or mixed - I personally think she has some lab in her. Either way, this type of pit bull is called "blue nose" - odd since their nose is not blue. Pit bulls are quite controversial due to the negative media coverage. However, I firmly believe that it is the owner, not the dog that dictates how a dog will behave.
