Pit Bull Awareness Month: Celebrating the History

Pit Bull Awareness Month: Celebrating the History

October is a special month for many reasons, but it has a special significance for those of us who have experienced the loyalty, affection, and tenacity of the American Pit Bull Terrier. As we step into Pit Bull Awareness Month, let's dive into the rich history of this iconic breed, understand what makes them truly exceptional, and explore the ways we can give back to these incredible canines.


The History of Pit Bulls

Originating from a mix of Old English bulldogs and various terriers in the United Kingdom, the initial intent behind the breeding was to combine the strength of a bulldog with the agility of a terrier. Though their past involved use in bull-baiting and later in dog fighting, these dark eras of history do not define the breed's true nature. Once these sports were outlawed, the Pit Bull quickly transitioned to a role they were always meant for: loyal companion and family dog.


In the early 20th century, Pit Bulls were seen as the perfect "nanny dogs" for children due to their protective nature and gentle demeanor. They were war heroes, movie stars, and the darlings of American households. Remember Petey from "The Little Rascals"? That charismatic pup was a Pit Bull.


Why Pit Bulls Make Exceptional Companions

Loyalty and Affection: One of the standout traits of Pit Bulls is their unwavering loyalty. These dogs bond deeply with their human counterparts and can be incredibly affectionate, often thinking of themselves as lap dogs, regardless of their size!


Intelligence and Trainability: Pit Bulls are smart, eager to please, and respond well to positive reinforcement, making them one of the more trainable breeds.


Resilience and Strength: Their history has equipped them with a high pain threshold. They are resilient, strong, but also sensitive, valuing the emotional connection with their owners.


Our Pledge: Supporting Sheltered Pit Bulls

Despite their positive attributes and historical significance, many Pit Bulls end up in shelters due to misconceptions and breed-specific legislation. This Pit Bull Awareness Month, we're taking action. With every purchase of our Pit Bull Loyalty Bundle, a portion of the proceeds will be directed to Pit Bull shelters across the U.S. to ensure these animals receive the care, love, and homes they truly deserve.
