I agree with what I read here. I own a 20 month pit, she is a angle, been raised properly, loved etc but like with any animal it will take just once. The first time pits taste blood they will go for more. Then on the other side of the fence any dog depending on how it is raised will be more docille if raised that way. Both my dogs are outside during the day, inside at night, my pit knows my voice and the change if I am upset, she will act accordinally, but she pushed her limits also. Any large breed dog if bred to be mean will do just that.
