Once Deuce settles I have considered adopting another dog from Villalobos, avid fan of the show and Tia's work. I am a huge fan of APBTs and any of the other "misunderstood" breeds. We had actually settled on a Cane Corso until the town over from us put a ban on pitbulls. So we were opted to retaliate and support the breed in our town which is still pit friendly. I have always been attracted to the powerful breeds of dogs because of their devotion to their family, not to mention the security of not worrying about being robbed in the middle of the night. Really tho I have owned several mastiffs, GSDs, a Rottie, and a few Pits and none of them have been anything but model family pets. My GSD/Wolf mix however hated other canine and was selective about people, we still never had a problem with him because we simply kept him in the yard when people came into the house.
I do feel like many people do not do ample research into these types of dogs...and many find themselves unable to deal with a dog which is stronger than them. I also think that the "bad rap" many breeds have comes from a lack of socialization, lack of training, lack of discipline, and owner ignorance. I would say that Deuce is bomb proof around other animals and humans...would I leave him unsupervised with someone's infant or a 2lb lap dog...no because that would be stupid. People do not think, they also do not understand that even bomb proof animals still have natural instincts which occasionally kick in. If a pit were to attack someone because it felt as if its family were under threat...there will be serious bodily damage. If a yorkie attacks because it felt its family was under threat...you might owe that person a new pair of pants or shoe laces. Pits also dont look stereotypically "cute" thus they dont get away with bad behavior as a fluffy little dog in the public's eye. I have seen far more aggressive yorkies, dachshunds, and chihuahuas than I have GSDs, rotts, pitts or dobbermans
