"I've raised American Pit Bull Terriers for more than 25 years...not as a breeder, but simply as a pet owner. Most of the dogs I've raised were either shelter rescued or fostered from families that could no longer care for them. I may be biased, but I sincerely believe the APBT to be easily within the top 3 of the absolute best dog companions that a person could care for. They are loyal, fun-loving, energetic, bold, courageous, and playful...although not for everyone. Because of their natural tendency towards dog aggression and their indomitable spirit, they should be raised by committed and skilled owners who are familiar with their history. I currently have two, a male named Kane and a female named Trinity. They are both rescues from the local shelter. Kane is approximately three years old and I've had him since he was around six months; Trinity is 18 months and I've had her about a year. Kane was found as a stray before being taken to the shelter, and Trinity was surrendered by a family that could no longer care for her. Although, there were some initial challenges, the life of my family has been greatly rewarded by the inclusion of these two great dogs. I would encourage anyone who is looking to own a member of this beautiful breed of dog to do their research, become familiar with their local laws regarding ownership of the APBT, and consider adopting from a rescue organization or animal shelter. And, by all means, please spay or neuter your pet. Currently, the American Pit Bull Terrier is probably the most exploited dog in the world. Because of their desire to please their owner, they are successfully being utilized for both legal and nefarious purposes, and their reputation precedes them. This is the #1 breed of dog that is euthanized in shelters. This breed does not need any more back yard breeders. There are a sufficient quantity of APBTs being kept in shelters to satisfy the most discriminatory owner. If you are the right owner for this breed, your rewards will be immeasurable with the proper training and care of an adopted dog. "
