Pitbulls are wonderful additions to families! They are not only wonderful deterrents from potential bad guys but they can also have gentle natures. Their controversial use in dog fighting often gives them a bad reputation. These bad reputations often lead to local governments trying to restrict the breed. However, like all dogs, much of their behaviors stem from what they've learned. That means a Pitbull can be a wonderfully gentle dog if trained correctly. To help integrate this wonderful canine into your life, here are over 450+ Pitbull dog names!

Nature versus Nurture in Pitbulls
Pitbulls receive a really bad reputation due to their use in dog fighting. They also have been noted to not want to unlock their jaws when biting. These two components combine to paint Pitbulls as aggressive and scary dogs. However, opinion is now moving in the other direction.
ASPCA stated in a public announcement: "All dogs, including pit bulls, are individuals. Treating them as such, providing them with the care, training and supervision they require, and judging them by their actions and not by their DNA or their physical appearance."
One of the most famous dog handlers alive, Cesar Millan, often used a Pitbull to calm down ill-mannered dogs. This helps prove that training is often essential when it comes to these wonderful family additions.
However, it is possible to use this bad reputation to your advantage: Pitbulls can scare would be bad guys into thinking twice.
