Well, I've had two pit mixes, and both seemed to be of similar disposition. They were quite affectionate and pleasant the majority of the time, but when they got enthusiastic it was game on. Biting and chewing were the biggest issues, never enough to break skin or do any major damage, but enough to be bothersome.
The female, for instance, made quite sure that my owning slippers was quite impossible. She would get a hold of them and, if I failed to slip my foot out of them in time, drag me straight to the floor. Amusing, yes, but not always the best activity when you're trying to relax after a day of work.
Beyond basic house training, neither made easy work of learning anything. That being said, overall they were entertaining to have around and always ready to play, but certainly not for the mellow types. If you like a dog who is generally mellow, this is likely not the way to go.
