Most people have a misconception of Pitbulls. Either people have had a bad experience or a great one when encountered with this breed. I am of those people who's had great experiences with the Pitbull breed. I’ve had three Pitbulls when I was really young, and I adored them. They were all red-nosed Pitbulls, and I believed that there was no other dog better than them. There was one in particular that stood out from the others. He’s name was Sanford. He was tall, dark and perfect with his luscious dark coat and white belly. I couldn't believe people saw Pitbulls as vicious animals because all my Pitbulls were the sweetest things. He kept all of my secrets and I kept all of his. Like when I dropped a bunch of eggs after I was told not to touch them, and Sanford cleaned it up for me. He protected me with his life. For instance, there was a time where I was almost attacked by a German shepherd while my family and I were taking Sanford for a walk. I saw the dog coming towards me and my mom, he was so fast practically a blur, but Sanford rushed out and tackled the dog. That's the only time I had ever seen Sanford become vicious, the awful stigma that follows the Pitbull breed. He protected me and mom. So I hold his memory deep in my heart. All Pitbulls are not bad, so the onus should fall on owners.
