Owning A Pit Bull
Own a Good Dog Own A Pit Bull
There are many different qualities to consider when choosing a dog. Pit Bulls have all the qualities needed to become a great companion. Although, if you treat them wrong when they're growing up there is a good chance they will get out of control. If you raise them right you will have one of the best dogs ever. For example my friend had a Pit Bull that he would hit for no reason and one-day the dog attacked him and hurt him pretty bad. This is a good example of why you should treat your dog right. From my experience raising a Pit Bull I have come to believe they are the best bread of dog. As with any dog you need to raise and treat them right. Naturally they are loyal, smart, strong and courageous.
One characteristic of a good dog is loyalty. Loyalty is obviously a good characteristic to have in a dog because you want your dog to protect you and be by your side. Pit Bulls are very loyal and faithful dogs. For instance I have a 14-week-old Pit Bull that I am raising now and unlike most puppies that will just run away from you when you walk out side, my dog will walk right next to me even without a leash. He also gets defensive and barks when some one comes to my house or knocks on the door. He barks at the window when people walk by my apartment. He is very protective. Whenever I go to sleep he comes and sleeps right next to me. When he was little and could not jump on the bed he would sit and cry until I brought him up on the bed. Wherever I am sitting in my house he will come sit next to me or lay down by me. Even when I am in the shower he sits outside the shower and waits for me.
The second important characteristic of a good dog is strength. This is important if you want your dog to be a guard dog and protect you from intruders. Pit Bulls are one of the strongest dogs. They were breed to be strong fighting dogs. They originated from Ireland. They mixed a Bulldog and a Terrier, so they had the strength of a Bulldog and the speed of a Terrier. Pit Bulls were fought in pits so that is were they got the name Pit Bull. Pits also have amassing jaw strength. They can smash these dog toys called kongs with their jaws. I can't even smash one by stepping on it. They are so strong that you can hang a rope from a tree and they will lock their jaws on the rope and swing from it. They can also jump very high. My Pit can already jump onto my bed and that is almost double his height. Some Pit Bulls can even learn to climb trees. Pits are also known for being very and muscular. My dog already weighs forty-five pounds at four months old.
