Many of us know that pit bulls can be some of the most loyal, lovable dogs around. Indeed, it is their strong love for and loyalty to their owners that often are manipulated to make them willing to fight – a behavior that is actually common amongst basically all dogs. Yet still, decades of thinking of them as aggressors can create a bias that we need to continually address to ensure their humane treatment.
Along those lines, here are 10 photos of pit bulls that will show that they really are just another breed of human’s best friend! When you get to the end, ask yourself if these photos are in line with what you hear or dare we say might even believe about them.
