Pit bulls were once held up as America’s ideal dogs. They were known to be loyal companions, who were gentle around children, which earned them the title of “nanny dogs.”
But even with such a positive, background, pit bulls today are known rather differently. Their very name strikes fear into the eyes of many and some even often warns their children to “stay away” if a pit bull is nearby.
According to a study, this change in attitude is not because the dogs themselves have transformed into being aggressive and dangerous to begin with, as some claim. Rather, what has shifted is the way in which people treat these dogs.
Sometimes its us people, not the dog’s breed, which influences their aggression. If a pit bull is treated poorly or not attended to properly, they, like any other dog, can develop aggressive tendencies.
Unfortunately, pit bulls are some of the most mistreated dogs around the world. And so in an effort to change the conversation about pit bulls, this guy on the video below a dog lover made an effort to film and prove how sweet and loving Pit Bulls really are!
This video indeed proves that pit bulls are kind, sweet and loving souls, who just want to give love and be loved. If we’d just give them the chance, perhaps we’d see that they are just like all our other beloved companions.
