This is an overall good pet, in my opinion. They are good with kids and easy to train, but the pitbull side gives them their stubbornness. There is no such thing as a bad dog or breed, just bad owners that train dogs to do the things that give them their bad reputations.
I can not stress this enough, if you are deciding to go with any type of this breed, be completely certain and well-researched in your decision (only from reputable sites of course) as they are the most prone to abandonment and shelters all over the country will put them down before even attempting rehabilitation.
