HIIIIIII!!! Here's my 4 yr old loving AmStaff/Pit Mix. I've had him for 3 years; he's from the pound and he's SOOO Loving!!!! He even got attacked by a Red Nosed Pit about 3 weeks ago and she bit his throat and ears in such a way that he couldn't breath, but I've trained him to not bit anything but his specified toys, so he didn't even try fighting back, he just looked at me. So, I dove in and got bit on the hand, but I saved my baby!!! He's so loving with EvERYONE - kids, cats, squirrels, strangers, YOU NAME IT!!! I just wanted to share that there are loving pits in shelters and as long as you work with them properly and teach them boundaries!!!! He just woke up when I took this pic! hehe.
