Are Pit Bulls Dangerous?!

I live in a house with two shih tzu's and a Pit Bull. My Shih tzu's are 5 and 7 and our Pit Bull Capone is 1. He just turned 1 June 18th, 2013 (Happy Birthday Capone)! When my husband first got Capone I had a BIG problem with it because

1. I found out I was expecting a baby and 2. I formed an opinion on those types of dogs based on everything I heard from the media. It was a constant battle between me and my husband and I made him keep the dog at his moms house until I felt i could accept little Capone (he is not so little anymore) lol. I then started to do research and found out I was over reacting after about 3 months of really learning about the American Pit Bull Terrier I finally accepted Capone. The question I was most curious about is Are Pit Bulls dangerous?? And the simple and honest answer is that ANY dog can be dangerous. Depending on your definition of what dangerous is to you. I honestly feel its the type of owner the dog has. Pit bulls were actually known in the early 1900’s as “nanny dogs” because they were tolerant and gentle with children. Also “Pit bull” isn’t a breed; it’s a label used to describe multiple breeds including the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and American Bulldog (ASPCA).
Ive noticed living with Capone that as long as he is taken care of meaning he is fed and taken on walks and given the right attention he is the most loveable dog ever. He reminds me of a big baby. He lets me know when he wants to go outside by doing a big baby whine (thats what I call it). For anyone who is considering adding a Pit Bull to their family I would recommend doing lots and lots of research but that goes with any dog you are thinking of adding to your family. After about a month my dogs got used to Capone and have formed a bond with him. He is a great protector and VERY loyal to our family. My husband has started the Pit bulls of Chicago organization and has big plans to help Pit Bulls and rescue because he loves them so much. You can view more photos of Capone and his daily activities on Instagram at Pitbullschicago.

                                                                Capone LOVES kids!
                                                         With some of his birthday gifts!

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill.

I am important.

My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more
money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.

And Here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.

I get to chose what kind of day I will have.

Make it a great one!
