Are pitbulls mean dogs by nature?
I don't believe that pit bulls are mean by nature by any means, I believe that they are what YOU make them. I have raised pit bulls for the last decade and I have never had one turn on me or my family. I have raised pits that came from really abusive homes and puppies from the swap meet. Pit bulls are very big hearted dogs that have gotten a very bad rap. If the owner does not train them right then of course like any animal or HUMAN, they have no choice but to run on instinct, which in most cases is survival of the fittest. In these cases it is not the dogs fault at all but instead the OWNERS fault for not teaching and training this animal the rules and for sure not allowing that pit to be spoiled. hope this helps you.

Pitbulls, like any dog, could be good or mean although, pitbulls most of the times are docile dogs that would rather be mean towards other animal but well trained, these dogs …obey the master.
Pitbulls do not naturally kill other dogs. Their owners have taken advantage of their natural aggressive nature to teach this.
Pit bulls are not naturally aggressive. But, i am not saying that all pit bulls are super nice and loving. People train these dogs to be like that. Yeah people might say that …even if the dog hasn't been trained to fight, they still do. That is probably because one of the pup's ancestors or relatives did. I read somewhere once: "No human is born evil. They become evil. No animal is born evil. They become evil." It is true. If people never trained these normally loving dogs to fight, they wouldn't.
Pitbulls are known by several names, such as the American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, and Pitbull Terrier. They are not a mix…, they are a breed of dog.
In my opinion Pit Bulls should be kept as pets and loving, loyal companions. They can be used as therapy dogs, rescue dogs, They can be trained for agility courses. Th…ey are smart, gentle, loving dogs! great choice for a pet!
They can live in any environment as long as the land lord or apartment owner approves and you take the dog for a long walk.
You should not get it mean This is not something that you should even be contemplating with this breed of dog. First and for most this breed can be dangerous if not trained …properly. In my experience with the pit bulls they don't want to be mean at all. People make them mean, they just want to love and be loved by their owners. Owners who want to make them mean are asking for trouble, not just with the dog but maybe with the law as well should that dog bite someone. Please for your dogs sake please don't try to do this to him or her she already has a bad name just for her breed. If any of us know about a dog fighting arena it is our duty to our dog and its breed to turn it in to the authority's and stop this blood bath of a sport that only kills this beautiful breed. "How do get my pit bull mean?" Unbelievable it's people like you that give The Breed a bad name. Even if you are looking for protection you don't need to force aggression. They can read your emotions and if you are a loving positive master, pit bulls will do incredible things to please you or "protect you".
The saying goes : Blame the deed not the breed! All the Pit Bulls I know are just as gentle (if not more!) as the retreivers and wouldn't hurt a fly! Try pointing the fing…er at the idiots who don't properly socialize them!
The Pit Bull Terrier (or American Staffordshire Terrier) was first bred from large Staffordshire Bull Terriers - a similar English breed. American breeders wanted a larger ver…sion of the English so selected the biggest offspring for further breeding. They were (and still are illegally) used for fighting other dogs in organised fighting rings.
Rottweilers are bigger than pitbulls. There are some breeds of pitbulls that might be larger than rottweilers. Bluenosed pitbulls, rednosed pitbulls, and the shockerline pitb…ulls are usually bigger than rottweilers.
I have a mostly indoor pitbull and he does excellent. You will need to walk and interact (play) with your dog to keep him/her from becoming bored and possibly destructive. The… key to keeping dogs indoors is attention and affection.

The same way any other dog does.

I never had to train my pitbull as a guard dog. I only teached him not to bite anyone when I'm walking him around and other basic teaching like the only place he could go to t…he bathroom and to be a docile dog. Pitbulls are smart and when they grow up, they will tell when they are needed in a situation. I rather deal with my problems alone. The dog could guard my home when we are not around.
Pitbulls are good to job with unless it sees a dog.
They're not any worse than any other dog. Society loves to talk about how they break people's arms & eat babies, but fail to mention that they're also used as guides for d…isabled people & that Pits were actually used to help rescue people on 9/11. If they're trained LIKE ALL DOGS SHOULD BE, they're not "fierce." In fact, their temperament is 6 points LOWER than Cocker Spaniels.
