The Definitive Guide To American Pitbull Terrier Dogs
Sweet tempered, loyal, and as gentle as they are strong, they were known as the Nanny Dog in Victorian England, from whence some of their ancestors hail. They were left to care for and oversee small children, and they did a remarkably good job. This medium-sized breed is solidly muscled, and forms intense, life-long bonds with their human family. Courageous in the face of both danger and sporting challenges, they are champions when it comes to pulling competitions or feats of agility and strength.
