Pit Bull Lovers website maintains that pit bulls are just like any other dog and are safe with children using the precautions you would with any dog.
Here in Pittsburgh, another pit bull attack was reported by WPXI News just last week. A 5 year old girl is recovering after being bitten on the face, receiving 600 micro-stitches.
A website known as the Pit Bull Awareness Center has dedicated a whole website to warning people about the dangers of this breed, using graphic stories and images.
Yet, Rescue Every Dog, a dog rescue website maintains that pit bulls tend "to love all people, especially children. The only caution I would add is that, because they are very exuberant and energetic dogs, they can sometimes overwhelm very young children and accidentally bump them or knock them over, particularly when they are pups."
Pets Do website lists pit bulls as #1 on their list of most dangerous dog breeds while Dog Politics website lists the top 10 most dangerous dog owners, rather than naming breeds.
