What Do You Really Know About "Pitbulls"?


Pitbulls make extraordinary companions! The term "Pitbull" is NOT a breed; it is a catch all phrase to describe 3 distinct breeds of dogs: the American Pitbull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Any way you slice it,Pitbulls are some of the most affectionate, loyal, and people loving pups on the block. With consistency, clarity, training, and leadership, you will never find a more constant companion than a Pitbull. Contrary to what the media would like you to believe,these dogs are far from "vicious" and they do not have specialized "locking jaws"- they are NOT alligators! Pitbulls are generally goofy dogs who are full of spunk, energy, and fun, fun, FUN! In fact, in a recent study by the American Temperament Test Society of 122 different breeds of dogs, Pitbulls achieved an average passing rate of 83.9%. That's better than Beagles (78.2%) and Golden Retrievers (83.2%). There are so many myths out there about Pitbulls that simply just aren't true. They are loving, loyal, and cuddly as teddy bears…come fall in love with a "bully" today!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
