My husband and I adopted a pit bull from a rescue organization in Los Angeles almost a year ago. She was 2 when we got her, so she’s about 3 now. I was looking at some other Bee’s pictures and noticed other Bees have pit bulls! I LOVE this breed, they are so misunderstood! So let’s have a positive pit bull conversation (please no negative comments! I receive that WAY too much when I’m out in public!)!
My Jessie! She’s such a snuggle bug, and even though she’s 60lbs, she thinks she’s a lap dog!

Here is ours. My FI rescued her from a kill shelter when she was a little over a year old. She is such a good girl and the biggest cuddler. First picture is on a recent hike and second picture is jumping off our boat to go for a swim.

Aww I love this! Pit bulls are my absolute favorite, I honestly can’t see myself having anything but a pit. They are so misunderstood, it’s nice seeing pit owners stepping up and speaking for the breed. This is my guy, his name is Ace 🙂 A friend of mine found him roaming the streets of Orlando, hungry and scared. She kept him as long as she could but was going to bring him to a shelter that already told her he didn’t stand a chance being a male black pit bull (she was preggo and leaving to go outta town so she really couldn’t keep him). Luckily I saw her post and drove to Orlando on a whim the next day and I can’t imagine my life without him!!!!

@Ms.GoodEarth: She is a cutie! I don’t have a pit, but I have a soft spot for them. My parents had two pits when I was little and my brother has one now. They are some of the sweetest, most loyal dogs I’ve met! Very misunderstood, it makes me sad.

Pit bulls are amazingly sweet, cuddly and loyal dogs. I would rather hang out with a pit bull than most of the people I’ve met.

Shelby Sue is a pit mix but I plan to always have a pitbull in my home. They are just the best. Here she is wearing a headband I wore to a recent ugly sweater party. She was not amused…

I don’t have a pitbull, but I just want to chime in here and say I LOVE pitbulls! They really are misunderstood. I have never ever met a pitbull that wasn’t friendly. And those faces! So cute!

Here is mine; I call him Luke. I rescued him a few weeks ago from a high kill shelter. He is so sweet and thinks that he is a lapdog like my 2 little shih-poos.

I would seriously think about getting a pit bull if I thought we could bring them everywhere. We move a lot because of military, and unfortunately, because of the stigma attached to them it isn’t guaranteed that we could bring them with us everywhere we moved. For instance, we just moved to Germany last year, and they don’t allow imporation of bully breeds 🙁
But they are seriously so so cute!

I’ll take any chance to show off my boy Diesel. He is the first pittie I’ve ever had and I think I may only have pitbulls in the future. He’s such a lover. Oh man how do I rotate?

Eeep! I love this thread! It’s so refreshing to see so much positivity regarding pitties and all of your dogs are beautiful.
I know I’ve posted my pup a few times around the bee, but here she is again! This is Tippi and she is the best dog I’ve ever had the pleasure to call my own.
She was rescued from a high kill shelter in Los Angeles County and she had a horrible earache that caused her to tip (hence her name). She loves to cuddle, is terrified of cats, loves going to the dog park to socialize and play fetch, and she is so loving with kids. She is also the easiest dog ever to train and will do anything for a treat. We have luckily not dealt with much negativity towards her, other than the occasional “She looks scary”, but most people change their tune once she is licking their hand and trying to get her chin scratched.
I have to say, I can’t imagine our lives without her and she definitely sets the bar high for what I expect from any dog we adopt next.

Here is my girl. Not a pit bull but a American staffordshire (still part of the bully family)/mastiff mix.
We got her from rescue and she is seriously the sweetest thing ever. She was a breeding dog that was never socialized and kept in crate all the time. We were her first home at almost 7 yrs old. She is amazingly gentle, shy and funny. It took a long time to get where we are now but she is thriving. My FI heard her bark about 6 months ago. Prior to that we were told no one had ever heard her bark. It too makes me sad when this breed is characterized as vicious because of dogs that have stupid owners.
