The American Pittbull Terrier: an American tradition, a "nanny dog," a loyal protector and companion...NOT a monster.
Pitbulls were originally known as nanny dogs - because they are great with children and they will protect "their" children no matter what. They will literally put their own life on the line without giving it a second thought.
