I've heard people say pit bulls get a bad rap. They deserve it. When's the last time you heard or read about a golden retriever or a Labrador mauling someone?
I had a pit bull for a couple of days a beautiful, seemingly gentle dog that fit into my family and was accepted by my German and Australian shepherds.
Part of me wanted to keep him but the part that recognized the bad rap said I'd have to be crazy. Sixty percent of dog maulings are by pit bulls.
