My ex and i raised a blue pit, and hes one of the nicest dogs i know. I love pits, when raised right they are like having a 2 yr old in the form of a beastly looking dog. lol I have an akita/shepherd mix. i love my dog. Hes so smart, it scares me. but hes awesome.lol Your very knowledgeable about dogs, i was unaware. Thats so cool!
