In England, Pit Bulls are known as the nanny dog because they are so gentle with children; as Heather says, its the people, not the dogs.

In England pitbulls are banned. https://www.gov.uk/control-dog-public/banned-dogs We called them nanny dogs, find a few clips of Little Rascals, they had Sparky a pitbull who watched over them ..

And from a quick search, here are three examples of the proven point of how seriously, selflessly, sweet, precious pittys can be (and many more where these came from!) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUV1oTciznE , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75GEzD6wh8o , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLnhy6oHQ1M

This is absolutely true. But people tend to only see how an animal acts and then think that is how he/she acts naturally, completely neglecting the heavy influence of the training and treatment he/she got from the people.

My pittie is a Nanny dog! He absolutely loves my 2 granddaughters. When my youngest granddaughter was just learning to walk....he would let us know when she was 'sneaking' to the stairs and when she was upstairs, he would position his body between her and the stairs....NO way was going to fall down the stairs on HIS watch. :) Love my pittie, Dakota!

Becky, I am sorry to hear about your cousin. But, it isn't the breed. Some dogs have a wire loose, just like people do. I volunteer at a 100% no-kill shelter. We have 5 "VIP" dogs. One has actually been diagnosed bipolar. He is friendly one second, and the next he viciously growls. We have 2 others that will act normal and then start pacing the yard and bite without warning. These dogs are used to us because they are permanent residents, but will still bite. Certain people take them out, not...

These dogs are used to us because they are permanent residents, but will still bite. Certain people take them out, not knowing what their attitude is that day. NONE of these dogs are pit bull. No trace of pit bull at all. Pit bulls aren't vicious as everyone makes them out to be. I work with all kinds of dogs all the time and I honestly have never met a smarter and more gentle breed of dog.

I really believe the animals have a right to live just as other animals do ,it is not the dogs fault the owners treat them the way they do I have owned and raised pittbulls myself they just need to be part of the family.

We have a pit bull mix and she is the best gaurd dog and is the best with my 16month old son (who gets rough with her) she has never even offered to bite anyone. She lost her back leg when she was 2 years old, she was hit by a car, and you can't tell that she's only got three legs she never let's it bother her. Its not the dogs who are bad its the people who raise them. She went threw trama when she was a puppy, we found her on the side of the road at 5 weeks old she was as skinny as a stick...

I am a proud owner of a red-nosed pit bull and her name is Ruby. She is the best lap dog and pillow taker I have had. She brings love to my heart and I am proud to be her friend.

Pits are an amazing breed of dog. I have been raised with them my entire life and I am now raising my girls around them. Cruel and heartless people are what make this breed dangerous.

We still have to live with this unjust and discriminatory law banning pitbulls in the UK, don't let them pass any more laws banning them in other countries. Ban the owner not the dog.
