American Pit Bull
Having a Pit Bull is one of the greatest experiences of my life. These dogs are not for everyone and it is a good idea to educate yourself on the breed before making your purchase or adopting. This video is a clip from the discovery channel that showcases the American Pit Bull. They are truly a strong tenacious breed that requires patience and lots of love. They are painted by the press as demon dogs, however we are quick to forget they are a part of the American fabric.
The video shows the history of the breed. Many people do not understand how important they were to Americans. they also talk about the negative press and breed bans in different cities. I like the way they present the breed, except when they talk about snapping. They touch on responsible dog ownership and the importance of socialization at a young age. the video also shows the anatomy of the Pit Bull. This was interesting how they develop their jaw strength. I really enjoyed this video and the positive messages about rescuing Pit Bulls from shelters.
