Thinking About Adopting a Dog?

Some things to consider in your decision-making process

What is a "Pit Bull Terrier" really?

Let’s clear up the misinformation about breed identification. This is not actually a breed, but a generic category of similar breeds, including the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (plus about 18 other breeds with some similar physical characteristics). This is why we always refer to these dogs as "Pit Bull Terrier Like" dogs—it's impossible to categorize any one breed-specific behavior or physical characteristic from this large of a collection of breeds and blends.

What will you tolerate?

Ask yourself that question. Make a list of things you won't stand for as a pet parent. Share it with anyone who is assisting you in finding the right match. This will help you determine what dogs may or may not meet your expectations.

Expect more responsibility—and expenses

Be prepared for prejudice and work to change hearts and minds!

As a Pit Bull Terrier guardian, you will be constantly required to defend your choice of pet. You will have friends, family members, or co-workers who may fear your dog. Some people will cross to the other side of the street as you walk your dog. Some will refuse to let their children play at your house. Your only defense is a well-trained, well-socialized pet that demonstrates how wonderful these dogs can be.

Are you prepared for these changes, responsibilities, expenses, and commitment?
