It’s no accident that dogs are referred to as man’s best friend. They love you unconditionally, they protect your stuff, they’re unparalleled chick magnets, and, like you, show no shame when it comes to pissing in public.
#1. Pit Bulls Aren’t Evil
A couple of kids get their faces gnawed off and people develop an irrational fear of pit bulls. When any dog breed — pit bull, golden retriever, labradoodle — goes to the Michael Vick School of Dog Training of course it can go haywire and cause damage. When trained properly, pit bulls can be sweet, lovable, and loyal pets.
