Did you know that Pit Bulls have been called “Nanny Dogs” since they are so good with children?
Did you know that Petey in the Little Rascals was a Pit Bull?
Did you know that Pit Bulls are common therapy dogs? They are helping in senior centers and also helping people with emotional and physical turmoil.
Did you know that Pit Bulls were the mascot in both World War I and World War II?
Did you know that Sgt. Stubby was a Pit Bull and a war hero? Stubby was wounded in action twice, he saved his entire platoon by warning them of a poison gas attack and he single handedly captured a German spy.
Did you know that Pit Bulls commonly have the highest scores on the American Temperament Test with an average score above 83%? They score higher than Poodles, Golden Retrievers and most other breeds.
Take a chance and Adopt a Pit Bull or Pit Bull Mix. You will never regret it. We now have a 1/2 Dalmatian 1/2 Pit Bull and a 1/2 Great Dane 1/2 Pit Bull. They are both loving, fun and protective dogs. Archie (Dal/Pit) protects my entire family but he really stands beside my daughter. He sleeps with her and looks out for her. It’s amazing. Our new Pit Mix, Max is a character and so far he is a pretty awesome puppy just with a few lessons to learn (like what to chew and what not to chew, respect other dogs….you know what every puppy needs to learn.)
Take a look at a Pit Bull or Pit Bull Mix. They are truly great dogs and perfect with kids. They live up to the name of being a “Nanny Dog.”

“The purpose of this pit bull campaign is to help everyone see what loving companions pit bulls can make when given the right training, care and environment. We hope to also reinforce the bond between pit bulls and their owners, while promoting pit bull adoptions.” – Dr. Gary Weitzman, President and CEO
