Pit Bulls Are Good Animals.

Should They be Allowed as Pets? Yes or No? By: Caroline D.

I think pit bulls should be allowed as pets because they are very friendly, they are very trainable, and most of all because they are fabulous guardians.

Friendly

To begin with, pit bulls should be allowed as pets because they are very friendly. For example, on the website Global Animal it shows a pit bull with a chick on his head, a basket in front of it, and he was not attacking them... he was the happiest elf on the block, also on the website Global Animal it states that pit bulls are very friendly, and from my knowledge pit bulls only attack if provoked.

Trainable

Another reason why pit bulls should be allowed as pets is that they are very trainable. For example, it takes 30-45 minutes to train a pit bull to find its way home, it takes about 4-6 months to potty train a pit bull, and it takes 3-4 days to train a pit bull to not bite.

Guardians and Helpers

Although, pit bulls should be allowed as pets because they are very friendly and because they are very trainable. My last and most important reason why pit bulls should be allowed as pets is because they are fantastic guardians. For example, the website The Dodo specifically states a pit bull stayed with an abandoned toddler in the woods all night, a dog named Baby saved her family plus 5 other puppies from a fire, and a pit bull saved a mother an her child from a man who threatened them. The American Kennel Club classifies pit bulls as "American Stafford-shire Terriers" and describes them as "people oriented, intelligent, and excellent guardians." While some people think that pit bulls are dangerous, I think they are just being protective of their owner and that is what I see in a good dog.
When all is said and done, these are all the reasons why pit bulls should be allowed as pets. As you know some of these facts can be found on The Dodo or Global Animal.
