Pit Bull Con's

“Baptist Johnson has said that pit-bulls are aggressive animals”. “Pits can get overly aggressive towards other animals. They were bred to fight and sometimes to even kill” (Johnson). So being an owner of a pit bull you have to look at the facts of owning one, because of the aggression towards others and the attention that they require. They are also very rambunctious around others and that could end up badly if it isn't controlled properly. “Baptist Johnson thinks that pits do need a lot of attention” They will get their exercise by destroying your things, so don't leave your pit bull home alone for along period of time. You have to make sure they do get their exercise all the time.

2. Automatically vicious- Not all pits are vicious, it depends on how they were raised and who's the owner.

3. If a pit bull was never trained to fight, they would be safe with other dogs.
