American pit bull terrier (pit bull): all about the breed of dogs
American pit bull terriers are medium-sized dogs, however unusually powerful. They are distinguished by fearlessness and devotion towards all members of the family in which they live.
The ancestors of the American pit bull terriers were Old English bulldogs and white terriers, a breed for dog fights, as well as harassment of bears and bulls, was bred. However, at present, these cruel amusements are prohibited, so the pit bulls had to master peaceful professions. They successfully "work" as partners, athletes, rescuers and therapists.
The American pit bull terrier is extremely peaceful in relation to people, but with other dogs is not averse to sorting out relationships. So on walks you have to take precautions. And be careful if you take another animal to the house.
In memory of Dred - the pit bull, “with whom we have one soul”, Diane Jessup dedicated the book “The Dog Who Talked to the Gods”. She made the striped pit bull Damian the main character of her work.
