Tho, pit bulls can be dangerous if not trained properly (just like any other breed of dog) they only become aggressive when they are at a last resort and feel threatened.

Pit bulls are thought to be vicious dogs by nature. These animals have been tested by the American Temperament Testing Association and were proved to have a better temper than golden retrievers, Labradors, and poodles. The same association proved that these animals do not have an inherent behavior to be violent toward humans. The size of the human does not matter either.

The public turning against these dogs really gave them a bad name. In the 1980s, pit bulls were known as a super-predator. The media started filling the public’s head with rumor’s about the dog’s behavior and anatomy (Delise 96).
