Dog aggression may be the only thing that would keep me from getting one. Not that I'm worried about managing it in public, it would be that I would only be able to get one dog. So if when the time comes I only want one dog an know I will not get another then I may very well get a Pit. If the time comes and I know I want multiples then I will not get a Pit. I love Boxers (I very much want one) it just seems they have horrible health. My cousin's dies at 4 or 5 years old. He was coming into the kitchen after his owner called him to get a treat and he just dropped dead in mid step.
