This leads to another mislead myth towards the American Pitbull Terrier that if they get aggressive with smaller animals then humans can possibly be next in line. That is untrue because if any dog got the chance they would attack a squirrel just like the American Pitbull Terrier. Also if any dog for this matter feels threatened by an animal then of course it will attack. Pit bulls have been bred to also obey humans and attack only animals if they feel in danger. They are very submissive towards humans and love to play and be around children.
Another myth about this breed is that if it has not been trained to fight then it will be okay with other dogs. These dogs have been bred to not stand down to any animal larger but that does not mean it …show more content…

Scientist have proven this myth wrong. Their jaw structure has the main things like every other dog breed. There is nothing to proven that the American Pitbull Terrier locks its jaw when it bites into something. Also proven wrong of a myth is that just because an owner of an American Pitbull Terrier has a treadmill does not mean that the owner is trying to train the dog for fighting .

Yes these dogs are fighting dogs but they love people so they will more likely only attack other dogs or smaller animals. Which leads me to that they are not good guard dogs because they love people. They are a people dog so if you want it to be a guard dog then you are going to have to pay a lot of money to get the pit bull properly trained to scare off intruders, so if you are looking for a guard dog breed then you are not looking for the American Pitbull Terrier. There is a bad perception of these dogs in the media and because of that a lot of them get killed because of fights so if anyone is planning to adopt an American Pitbull Terrier then they are going to have to make a positive role model of the dog so nothing bad happens and to prevent the dog from being killed. A lot of people like to put big heavy chains on pit bulls but the thing about that is that it is very heave for the dog and can be a big burden to them. Also it can irritate their skin and
