4 Reasons Why a Pit Bull May
Not Be Right For You
There is no question that Pit
Bulls are good looking animals. But while they possess
a certain noble
look that many people find irresistible, their most distinguishing
feature is in their personality.
Almost all Pit Bulls share similar traits. They all carry
with them a
legacy of physical as well as mental characteristics that were once
essential for their ancestors’ survival. Pit Bulls are exceptional dogs
who need exceptional owners. Whether their traits are considered
positive aspects of the dog’s personality or an obstacle to the owner
in creating a lasting bond, depends entirely on the owner.
Below are four reasons why a Pit Bull may not be suitable to your needs
in a pet dog.
1. A Pit Bull is a strong and very muscular dog. He is also very
energetic. He will make a great pet if you want a dog that does not
break easily. You will also make a great match if you are the type of
person who is always up for an adventure and would not mind a canine
companion. However, if you are not the active type and would rather
have your ten year old walk your dog by himself, or if you are always
busy with work and have no time to take your dog out for a stroll, then
a Pit Bull is not for you.
2. A Pit Bull is a very intelligent and confident dog. This works great
if you know how to properly train your dog and you have figured out how
to apply his wonderful play drive and sense of humor to guide his
intellect. But if you think that you can push your dog into obedience
or if you expect him to hang onto everything you say, then a Pit Bull
is not for you.
3. A Pit Bull is loyal and bonds deeply with his family. This is great
if you are also loyal to him, consider him as a permanent member of
your family, and do not mind taking him along on family trips. But if
you consider having a Pit Bull as a temporary pet and then abandon him
after a period of time or if you always leave your Pit Bull home alone,
then having a Pit Bull will not work out for you.
4. A Pit Bull is perceived as a tough “macho” dog. This is great if you
live alone and want a dog that makes you feel safe and secure. On the
other hand, if you want a dog that is easily approachable and is
welcomed by everyone, than a Pit Bull is not for you.
