Would you adopt a Pit Bull? Went to the local animal shelter to look for another cat. Noticed that 8 of 10 dogs and pups are pit bull or pit bull mixes. A few are really cute as pups. Really considered getting one but animal shelter said it's a lot of work and risks. Too many people ditch the pits at the shelters. One pit bull dog in my neightborhood tore up another dog and its owner. I have young nephews and nieces visit me all the time so I don't want the dog to snap. I heard once they're in frenzy the owner has a hard time regaining control. But they sure are cute.
