Bella the Pitt

I have had great experiences with Pitt Bulls, I owned a Pitt/Dalmatian at the time and he is an incredibly well tempered dog.
We decided to get him some company, her name was Bella, she was a pure breed Pitt Bull.
Unfortunately, Bella is an example of a large breed dog that was not trained right from a puppy. She had previously been abused by her owners and neglected. She was very sweet and playful, but she was too much to handle. She was more of a "hunting dog". Fast and agile, could jump 5+ feel high, saw her catch a squirrel a couple times...
With that came jumping on people, destroying furniture, etc... But more severely, although she was friendly towards people, she started attacking my other dog, so I sadly had to give her away.

This has not been my general experience with Pitt-Bulls. When properly trained I find them to be amongst the best, most loyal dogs you can own.
