Working in rescue, I have come across many breeds of dogs, but the one that sticks to me the most is the Pit Bull. We've ended up with many and many different personalities from abusive homes, Neglect, off the streets, a couple thrown from cars, some extreme cruelty cases, puppies, geriatric seniors, and even a deaf baby. You know what they all had in common? Forgiveness. Every single one of these dogs would greet you with the hardest wagging tail you have ever seen and endless kisses. Each one was so happy to be with you. They are very playful and quirky and you can't help but smile at their complete optimism despite how their life started. These dogs love to learn and be with you. Easy to teach cool tricks, and basic ones. The learn where their crate is, though they sometimes want to share it with their best friend if left to freely come and go. They know when it's time to eat and won't let you forget. They don't typically require a special diet and grooming is super easy with their short hair and "open" ears that let air flow. They love a belly rub and to snuggle up as close as they can to you. Out of all the Pit Bulls we rescued (We rescued at least 50 in the time I worked in that rescue), not a single one was bad. We only had to put one down due to aggressive behavior, but she had been thrown out of a moving car and vet results showed significant brain damage. We are very certain her aggression came from the injury. I love these dogs and wish more people could truly see how sweet and forgiving they are. I would definitely recommend this dog for anyone, be it Man, Woman, Family, or bachelor. They live to make your life happy.
