Man, joe I saw this thread title and was ready to go ape-sh1tz. Lol great pic.
My rednose pitbull died a few years ago, he was extremely people friendly. So much so my mom would be struggling to hold him back when a strange person came to the door, they would usually think he was going to attack them if mom let go, when actually all he wanted to do was play!! All the tail wagging would give him away to any dog lover.
He got along great with my older black lab female, they were best of freinds. But a strange dog came on the property, look out he would run 'em clean off the property. and god help the groundhogs he would stalk and quickly eliminate from the farm.
He would eat a few shoes but his real troublemaking would come in the form of disecting sisters stuffed animals. Wouldnt shred em but would bite off the eyes and noses then carefully full a few stitches out of a seam then pull all the stuffing out thru the seam and eyes. Sort of a reverse build-a-bear!
Sis would freak after finding a hollow eyed,deflated teddybear and a grinning pitbull layin on her bed!
It really is the way you raise them- they are not the "dangerous breed" many are trying to ban.
Sorry long winded
Dibo, miss you buddy-RIP
