Have you ever seen a dog unleashed in the park and became nervous that you may be attacked? What about if you were on your daily morning walk and a dog came running towards you? Would you be afraid? I’m sure a lot of you would say that it depends on the breed whether you get scared or not.

If a Chihuahua or Pekingese came running towards you, you most likely wouldn’t be afraid. There are some breeds that unjustly have bad reputations, but are actually some of the best dogs if they’re trained right.

1. Pit Bulls

Pit bulls are probably the most feared dogs in the US because of their bad reputation that’s not true at all. If pit bulls are brought up the right way, they’re incredibly loyal and loving dogs.In fact, pit bulls are known for their lovingly protective and gentle ways even with young babies and toddlers.
The problem with these dogs is that they are very strong and they can be good fighters, if they are brought up that way. Some people abuse this feature of pit bulls and train them to attack other dogs, even other people.

The sad thing is that they do it by hurting and torturing the dogs so they become defensive and aggressive in order to protect themselves.
The important thing is to raise awareness about the abuse of pit bulls so this breed can get the appreciation, care and love it deserves.
