I never had any real love for pits, they're just not my kind of dog. But, I've never been around one that didn't want to be loved on, petted, praised, or cuddled.
There are a couple of breeds I don't like. Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, Dachsunds (the only ones that ever bit me and meant it), and I don't really care for mastiffs, although I don't dislike them, but it's only because if I want a horse, I'll get a horse.
I've been planning on getting a Ladner yellow black mouth Curr (what a mouthful, right?), that's the same breed as ole yeller. A coworker breeds them. But, expenses and a lower paying job are taking their toll. I shall have to wait for a dog. Some more.
That sorry Hoe never wanted a dog. Oh lord, we always had to have a cat infestation, but I suffered the wrath of a woman scorned any time I brought up getting a dog. I was allowed one at one point. He died less than a month after I picked him up from the shelter, he had advanced stages of distemper when I brought him home and I didn't realize it. She laughed.
