There are many reasons to adopt a Pit Bull as a family pet but for you I have put together the best top 10 list on the web to help you make a stronger decision. The American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) is the source of much controversy but I believe there are many people seeking the truth. This top 10 list was made for you.
Reason #1 – The shelters are full of homeless Bully Breed dogs, most destined for euthanasia. You can get a new best-friend and save a life at the same time, you hero. You’ll also be supporting your local shelter and helping to keep homeless dogs off the streets which is a selfless reason to adopt a Pit Bull!
Reason #2 – Companionship is essential to the human spirit and we say “dog is the man’s best friend” for a reason. Despite the myths you hear, the APBT is specifically inclined to please their owner and the rewarding nature of my relationships with my dogs can’t be described in words.
Reason #3 – You get your own personal (and portable) heating pad…Throw out your snuggie and adopt a Bully Breed! It may snore but it loves to cuddle and will keep you warm on the coldest of nights! This reason to own a Pit Bull that will come in more handy than you think!
Reason #4 – Raising and training a responsible, charismatic and well-mannered APBT is very rewarding and produces life-long results. Not only will your “Nanny dog” enjoy its special place as a member of your family but a Pit Bull that knows its place in the hierarchy of your home is a calmer, more obedient and thus happier, pet.
Reason #5 – You would have your own piece of history; few dogs make such an iconic American Pet with as rich a history. The Pit Bull has sported the rank of Sergeant as “Sergeant Stubby” who served in the 102 Infantry Division in WW1, saved many lives and is popularly known as the Georgetown University Mascot. Join the likes of Mark Twain and President Teddy Roosevelt as a proud owner of the APBT and adopt a Bully Breed today!
Reason #6 – Because we all need a good work-out and having an APBT is like having a personal trainer with motivational experience. (you do NOT want an anxious pup tearing up your Dad’s expensive couch…Sorry!) They are a ton of fun to play with and always guaranteed for a good laugh!
Reason #7 – They are great with children! Contrary to popular myths the American Pit Bull Terrier is fantastic with small children and babies. They were once deemed ”The Nanny Dog” because they were left to babysit!
Reason #8 – Stick it to the man! As responsible Pit owners we have an opportunity to mold an ambassador for the breed; A Bully Breed who is friendly, passive and well-behaved. This goes a long way when meeting strangers who always heard about how vicious they can be.
Reason #9 – When you adopt a Pit Bull you always have something fun to do! For someone like me it’s perfect because it gives me an excuse to go walking at the shopping-outlets without a human when you talk to girls you won’t look like a loser, your awesome! its great socializing the dog and the people.
Reason #10 – YOUR HEALTH! A healthy reason to adopt an APBT is because their funny, athletic, smart, joyful and these qualities rub off! Their characteristics magnify the truth that owning a dog can extend your life. AND owning a Bully Breed is great for your mental health too! No bull! More exercise and a more rewarding relationship.
These are all compelling reasons to adopt a Pit Bull or Bully Breed and I guarantee they are far more fun to witness in person! An APBT makes a great family pet and I hope you can put the myths aside and find out for yourself!
