Pitbull: 5 things to know about this dog considered dangerous

The Pitbull, his real name American Pit Bull Terrier, is the victim of a bad reputation. Considered the most dangerous dog in the world, its possession has even been banned in several countries, including France. Indeed, it is prohibited to sell, import or acquire a Pitbull. However, if the Pitbull is not raised in the wrong hands, he is not more aggressive than another! The proof in 5 points.

1. An origin that is lacking

Appeared at the end of the 18th century, the Pitbull was immediately used to fight the bulls and dogs in the arena and then entertain the audience of the time. That's where his reputation for aggressive and ferocious moloss comes from, a killer dog attracted by the smell of blood.

The Pitbull is not considered as a race in itself but rather as a type of dog. It is usually associated with the American Staffordshire Terrier.


2. It is balanced

The Pitbull is not the ugly duckling you might think. In fact, he is one of the most balanced dogs ever. Indeed, the Pitbull has a character as stable as the Golden Retriever or Newfoundland for example. So we see that the bad dog tag that is associated with it is completely false. In reality, everything depends on how he is educated, like any other dog.

Gentle, affectionate, playful, gentle and patient, especially with children, Pitbull's temperament is completely devoid of aggression towards humans. On the other hand, he can sometimes be a little quarrelsome with other dogs.

3. It is very robust

Beyond its powerful musculature (20 to 30 kilos of muscles all the same), the Pitbull enjoys an iron health. Indeed, he has no particular health problem, except for skin problems. And for good reason, the skin of Pitbull is more fragile than that of other breeds of dogs. It is therefore more likely to develop allergies, inflammation, or even skin diseases.

In addition, its hair is very short, Pitbull is not protected against hot weather or cold. Thus, it is necessary to shorten the walks in summer and winter, otherwise it will catch a sunburn or a cold snap.

4. He is tireless

True ball of energy, the Pitbull has a great need to spend. It is essential to have a physical activity every day so that it can flourish. Thus, even if he has access to a garden, this great sportsman must go out to walk at least twice a day so that he can socialize with other dogs but also explore new places and new smells. Indeed, the Pitbull hates staying in an enclosed space for hours at a time. He needs to be constantly stimulated.

This dog is not suitable for people who do not have enough free time to meet all their energy needs. Especially since the Pitbull must benefit from a strict education (but without violence!), Which requires some involvement on the part of its owner.

5. He is not a good watchdog

One might think that this dog known to scare thanks to his impressive physique is an excellent watchdog. What nay! In reality, the Pitbull is far too sociable with humans to be able to take on such a role. Indeed, he will tend rather to go to a foreigner to beg him for a caress and not to make him flee ...
