Hard to fault that ID, as the AmStaff is one of 4-6 specific breeds that are legitimately considered pit bulls.

Never said they were evil. Either of them.

I'm happy to report my dogs have extended their lifetime streak of no murders. Additionally, the stray pit I scooped off the street the other day is back home with his family.

I've met a lot of pit bulls over the course of my lifetime, and I've never met one that isn't well socialized and friendly.

Not to say that there aren't mean and ornery pits out there, but that is more a function of how they were raised and/or treated. Somebody can take any breed of dog, any size, and if it isn't socialized properly and treated correctly will turn into a menace.

One of my neighbors has two dogs, Storm a pit bull and Choral, an English bulldog. Both are good dogs, but Storm is amazing. Whenever I approach his tail is going a mile a minute and he is always happy to see me. He's that way with pretty much everybody, as is Choral.

Interestingly, only Storm can go the the local dog park. Choral, the purebred bulldog, does not get along with other canines, other than Storm. Storm is as good with other dogs as with people.

Since Pits get a lot of bad press, I figured I would put an article with some good press for once!
