Five Reasons Pit Bulls Make Great Pets

Pit Bulls have a bad reputation due to commonly being used as fighting dogs. The truth of the matter is; however, that these dogs make great pets. 

Here are the five reasons why:

1. They are very loyal to their owners. If you take care of them, they will be right there by your side when you are sick or upset, lying next to you and licking away your tears.

2. They are lap dogs. Yes, even though they are muscular and weigh a ton, they still like to roll up in a ball on your lap at the end of the day. Be warned though, they are not going to want to get back up.

3. They are great guard dogs. They may only be medium-sized dogs, but their bark says it all. And they will do just that, they will bark to let you know that someone is approaching your house. They will continue to stand guard and bark until they are sure that you are safe.  

4. They do not judge you. That is right, you can come home from a bad day at work and bring it out on your dog, but this particular breed is understanding and gutsy enough to walk right up to you and lick you in the face anyways.

5. They are actually challenging to beat at tug-of-war! Pit Bulls are illegally used as fighting dogs because they are so strong, but they would much rather use their strength to play games with you. They will eventually let you win so that you will challenge them again one day, but they love showing off their special talent. 

So, if you are thinking about getting a dog, do not write-off Pit Bulls. Give one a chance and I guarantee that you will see just how lovable they really are.
