Pit Bulls have gotten a bad reputation for being vicious, aggressive dogs, which is tragic considering they are gentle, nurturing animals who, we can say from personal experience, are excellent at snuggling. One of these gentle giants, Bubba, has an especially soft spot for friends of the feline variety. Rebecca, Bubba’s mother, brought her home at three months. Rebecca’s roommate at the time was fostering a litter of kittens and Bubba was immediately smitten. Finally, at age six, Rebecca surprised Bubba with a new addition to the family.

This is Rue, Bubba’s new kitten.

For Bubba – it was love at first sight.

Rue was quite taken by her new friend as well.

Rebecca remarked: “The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door.”

And she was 100 percent correct.

Rue and Bubba are inseparable. They even got ready for trick-or-treaters together.

But mostly they just like to cuddle.

It\'s NOT the breed! The sad part is that the humans that often desire a Pit Bull are often the less likely humans on earth to have decent values and social skills. These creeps breed their dogs to be vicious and the breed suffers for it. I\'ve read these comments about nice Pits suddenly attacking for no reason and I suspect it\'s the breeding that\'s the problem—and any dog can be vicious just as any human can be. A top notch Pit bull will run you some money—so much easier to buy one from your local drug dealer and then complain about how nasty it is! We had a little mixed breed mutt years ago that was nasty through to it\'s little dark soul and nothing could help—we ended the problem humanly. But it was the poor dogs breeding at fault. Maybe what we need is better breeding for humans! Next Saturday I will play Santa for the animals at a local store and I expect to have a couple of Pit Bulls on my lap as in years past. They will NOT "flip out" and no persons will be killed nor other dogs harmed. Life isn\'t perfect and humans, as well as cats, dogs, horses, etc can flip out but it\'s NOT normal for well bred, well loved dogs of ANY breed to do so! By the way, why don\'t we go back to calling the breed by it\'s correct name which is a Staffordshire Terrier and let the low life\'s have their "pit bulls". Have a nice day, thanks for reading this and now go and hug your dog!

Having raised Akitas for so many years, they taught me a lot about prey drive. This applies to "most" breeds of dogs. The higher the prey drive the more they want to kill or attack. My old girl Akita was the most gentle of Akitas. She didn\'t have a mean bone in her body. Adored kittens and puppies and got alone with other dogs and people. On the other hand, I\'ve had Akitas that would take you down in a heart beat if given the chance. I know what Akitas are and what they can do and I don\'t pretend to tell people they are a "misunderstood" breed of dog. Same with Pit Bull dogs. There are some that have low or zero prey drive and will love everything and everyone. Then there are the ones with a high prey drive and want to take down any and everything.

only the first two pics in that series worked, but, who cares. Most pit bulls are trouble.

Not true, most Pit Bull OWNERS are trouble and they give an amazing breed of dog a bad name. In a decent and caring home Pit Bulls are simply big puppy dogs full of love and devotion.

Sorry Joe, but it\'s not pitbulls, but that perception, or incorrect belief that\'s the trouble. Pitbulls aren\'t bad,or trouble. It\'s the humans that force them into situations where they have to fight or die. Those people need to replace the people in prison for BS drug charges and learn not to abuse animals, or anyone, before even being considered for parole. And no contact with animals afterwards without being supervised AND recorded. If there is trouble involving a pitbull, it\'s time to look deeply into the people that dog has been with.

There may be truth to both statements that Pit Bull breed dogs are both loving and vicious. Look at the human race. There are those that are raised with love, encouragement, direction, support, all of the good things, then the "snap" happens and there is the dark side showing itself. Brain chemical imbalance? Blow to the head? What brought about the "snap?" Then there are those that complete their lives as loving, giving "normal" type people. To tito, who claims to have a psychopath Pit. Have you had some psych testing done, or even blood tests, scans, etc. to determine if there is a physiological reason for the dual personality? Hope you live close enough to an advanced animal vet who practices that particular type of treatment/diagnoses. It would be interesting to see the outcome of some tests. I have a difficult time believing that there isn\'t something in the dogs backstory to account for its behavior. Hope you investigate, if only for your own peace of mind. Or, you could spend a week or two with Caesar Milan, and your dog, and see if it might be how you are with your dog. Anything is worth the effort instead of you having to live in fear of letting people around your dog.

How many times have you read about grandma and grandchild and their loving pit bull who would never hurt a soul; walking home from the store. When suddenly the dog attacked and killed the child and mauled the grandma. And no one could explain why the friendly pit bull did it. He just snapped reads the headlines... That\'s why they are the most deadly dog in the country.
And I would rather have my child alive than trying to understand why the dog suddenly flipped out and now my son is dead.

I agree that they are not worth the gamble. Yes, some can be gentle and others viscous, so why take a chance? Other breeds do not have the nasty reputation of Pit Bulls. There are too many other nice breeds available, so why pick one that has a bad history? Think of how they got their name PIT BULLS and you may better understand why this breed needs to be completely removed from this planet.

After researching what science has found out about dog attacks, I completely disagree with your "it just snapped" opinion. Dogs do not just "snap." Dogs do, however, become aggressive and dangerous when an uneducated pet owner does not recognize the signs of a dog\'s challenging authority or never having been raised correctly. In my experience, people who say their dogs "snap" have been letting their dogs get out of hand or never had control over them to begin with. Some who report this were found to let their dogs be unsupervised with a child. Another may have put their babies and dog together on a blanket and oo and ah over it. Yet another may have allowed the dog on the furniture. Then there is allowing the dog to be possessive over toys or food, or not training the dog, crating the dog, walking the dog, exercising the dog, or allowing it to get loose, run the neighborhood, or mouth anyone\'s hands. These dogs, then, never "snapped": they just advanced to the next step in their challenging the pack order, starting with the kids, because the alphas (the adults) were not qualified to have protection dogs.

And then there are the reports on dog bites. One statistic that catches my eye every time is that in 97 percent of all reported pit bull attacks on children, the adults are not supervising. They are absent. So the parents most often have no idea what really happened to incur the attack.

And in response to Charly\'s opinion, there are statistics on dog temperament tests ordered by animal control. Ninety percent of the dogs ordered to be tested are pits, and yet they place third of all breeds for best temperaments. So this breed is the most scrutinized and does very very well under that scrutinizing.

I would, however, agree with the both of you that other breeds might be better for people who don\'t think of these things. We chose to go with bully breeds, and we did the necessary work, and the dogs enriched our lives.

I have to disagree. I have a red nose pitbull and he\'s a psychopath. He will be nice one second and out to take your head off the next. So when it come to pitbulls, it does depend on the dog. The have a reputation for a reason. I love my dog and I am very responsible with him so I do not trust him around people!
