Pitbull a often get a bad rap because when they do misbehave they have a lot of physical strength. That being said, the majority of pitbulls that I have encountered are some of the sweetest dogs I've met. Whatever breed of dog you have, it is more about what you do with the dog than what breed they are. Any breed of dog can be well behaved and safe to be around.
