    I’m fearful that the Pit bull needs a specific kind of proprietor…these dogs, regardless of how ‘supportive’ still have teeth, are nevertheless animals without having moral principles and if they DO bite, won’t let go. As in all animals…some have a tendency to be more suseptable to instinctual habits and time and time once again, this breed tends to perform just that.
