Let's talk about how to select a Pit Bull Terrier, also known as American Staffordshire Terrier. This is a frequently maligned, but wonderful breed of dogs, very good athlete, great at sports; would be, in general, a good jogging buddy. These should be well socialized with dogs as youths, but not all adult Pit Bulls would choose to be friends with lots of strange dogs as adults. That's not to, that's not an un an atypical characteristic of many breeds of dogs. Akitas are also like this, so nothing special to Pits. Pit Bulls tend to be friendly towards other people, and good with children, and protective of their family, so in all, a wonderful breed of dog. If you're interested in this breed of dog please do read up more about them. Talk to people who know and appreciate the breed, and read up print and online to find out if this is the right dog for your family now and many years in the future. Hopefully, your dog would live with you for fifteen or more years. In this particular case, I would strongly recommend you consider adopting a dog from a reputable rescue. These are fairly hard, difficult dogs to place because there are people out there who maybe have the wrong idea of how these dogs should be treated, and we always want these dogs to be placed in a good healthy home where they can have live out a good life and enjoy themselves. They're they're generally not as big as people think they are; maybe mid-fifties to mid sixty pounds, and an important thing to note; that the dog on The Little Rascals, Petey, was a Pit Bull.
