40 Crossbreeds Between Pit Bulls and Others Bring Out Adorable Dogs

Most people fear Pit Bulls and we cannot blame them. Pit bulls have a reputation for being aggressive dogs. The argument is that it depends on their socialization as puppies. The Pit Bull, by itself, is not a specific breed. It includes several breeds with similar traits.

Bronwen Dickey is the author of The Battle Over an American Icon, “Pit Bull.” In the book, she tries to put pit bulls in a positive perspective. Jeffrey Sacks has looked into Pit Bull attacks, and in most fatalities, there have been incidences of mistaken identity of the breed. This he relaid to National Geographic.

People have put Pit Bulls in one category as having a large head and a coat of short fur. On fatalities that happened between 2000-2009, the American Veterinary Medical Association journal pointed out that other factors were surrounding the training and handling of the dogs. Also, the notion that these dogs are bred for fighting is not factual on a case by case basis. Originally the American Pit Bull Terrier was bred for fighting in 1889. The other dogs grouped as Pit Bulls were more of dog show breeds. Grouping them in one group is not necessary. Their looks don’t present their behavior.
