Pit Bulls, once considered “America’s dog” are intelligent, crave love and affection, and are especially loyal. When asked to think of a dog that is good with children, many people think of a Labrador or Golden Retriever, but neither of these breeds has the distinction of being known as the “nanny dog.” For generations, Pit Bulls were referred to as “nanny dogs” because they were the most trusted breed of dog to be caretakers for young children.
