Astoundingly, for most of our history America’s nickname for Pit Bulls was “The Nanny Dog”. For generations if you had children and wanted to keep them safe you wanted a pit bull, the dog that was the most reliable of any breed with children or adults. Vintage Pit Bull #pitbull #pitbulllove #vintagepitbull
vintage pit bull...these wonderful dogs were once called "nanny" dogs because of their devotion to their people. Remember, it was people who destroyed the reputation of these dogs, and it will be up to people to restore it. Report animal abuse. #thatpuppyface #elduropits #championblue #stud #bulliesofinstagram

And they are...would trust my pitty against ANYONE trying to take/harm one of my own! Such sweethearts, otherwise.
Touching story about the history of pitbulls, which used to be known as "nanny dogs." They make WONDERFUL pets!
Saying their prayers before bed :) "Pit Bull’s jaws do not lock, they do not have the most powerful bite among dogs (Rottweilers have that honor) they are not naturally human aggressive (in fact pit bull puppies prefer human company to their mother’s two weeks before all other dogs), and they feel as much pain as any other breed (accidentally step on one’s toe and you’ll see)."

despite their current unfortunate (and untrue) reputation for being vicious killers, pit bulls are great family dogs and used to be called "the babysitter dog" back in the early 20th century.

Check out this video of this sweet pitbull dog playing with a baby only 5 months old and you will see just why pit bulls were considered nanny dogs.
I don't recommend leaving babies with any dogs or animals, or kids over all but this is a cute picture!
Found this photo idea on The Chive. Absolutely adorable picture of a nanny dog ( aka pit bull) and a baby
I love dogs, especially pit bulls. But, I hate to see pictures like this. Wait till the child and dog have had time to get use to each other. At this size, a baby is similar to a dog toy.
How can anyone hate these loving animals? They are so sweet but are very misjudged. We need to spread the word that they are not a "bad breed". Awwwwwww | 37 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Pit Bulls

The APBT is not the best choice for a guard dog since they are extremely friendly, even with strangers. Aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed and highly undesirable. This breed does very well in performance events because of its high level of intelligence and its willingness to work. Fits a women's shoe size 6-8.5.

Judge the deed, not the breed. So give a Pit Bull a try before sentencing them all to die. <3 <3 <3 #pitbull #puppy #dog
This is for all pitty and pitty mixes everywhere. LUV,LUV,LUV this! So true! I always tell people my dog didn't choose the skin he was born in. Judge him for his sweet soul!!
This is for the pit bulls and pit bull mixes I have known and loved, especially Bruno. #pets #BSL #dogs #education #discrimination
No one will understand the HATE in my heart for all the people sentencing Pitbulls and other argressive breeds to death because of their breed , It's the owner not the dog . END OF STORY PEOPLE ! Educate yourselves !
Pit Bulls, when appropriately trained, they are the BEST family dog. Don't judge a breed by the scumbags who raise them to be fighters. They only want to please their masters.
All dogs can become aggressive, but the difference between an aggressive Chihuahua and an aggressive pit bull is that the pit bull can do more damage. That's why it's important to make sure you are a hundred percent ready for the responsibility if you own a 'power' breed, like a Pit Bull, German Shepherd , or Rottweiler.
yes pit bulls are cute & sweet but often pits are spoiled & have everything & have great owners but they can decide to turn on you just like a wild animal! I have heard many stories from people know who have sweet loving pit bulls & then they go & attack the owner or another dog! it runs in their breed no matter what they are sweet but they will always have that wild animal fight in them you never know when they may turn on you this is a great breed it just has issues wether it was abused or not

The adorable, sweet and loyal American Pit Bull Terrier. It's a shame these wonderful dogs have garnered such a terrible reputation because of the handful of ignorant people who own them. #dog #animal #american #staffordshire #terrier
Pitt Bull - So sad that so many people are scared of these dogs. They are actually among the most friendly. If trained correctly, they can be the sweetest of dogs. shipleym87 I have met so many sweet pitbulls. definately has changed my idea of them
Can't wait to be a pittbull mom one day. This is a guide about raising a Pit Bull puppy. Pit Bull puppies need the same training and socialization as any puppy. There are some additional steps you can add to your training schedule for these energetic powerful dogs.

Pitbulls. So misunderstood and mistreated. My sister has one that's trained and licensed to help at hospitals and nursing homes...the kids in the neighborhood come over and ask if he can play with them...he plays with the cats and squirrels... Pit bulls are awesome dogs and beautiful creatures.

Pit Bulls are the best dogs. Trust me, I would know. I have 47 dogs and three are pits. One of those pits sleeps with me every night and plays with my baby. There are no bad dogs, only bad owners.
Punish bad owners for turning these sweet dogs into fighters. They are lovers by nature! Ive owned pittbulls for years and none of them have had a mean bone in their body.
Hate how people think they are so mean ... well they wrong it all depends on how the owner trains them if owners mean they'll teach dog mean things if owner is kind like me then the dog will be kind to others my dog is so sweet #bestdog!
At the beginning of the 20th century Pit Bulls were considered loving and loyal FAMILY dogs. Then the media, as usual, over hyped a very few instances of dogs in horrible situations and gave birth to the "monster dog" myth. In truth it's the owners who deserve to be called monsters.

Previous pinner wrote: "Pit Bulls - they're not all bad. Don't judge the dog!!!" Bad dogs of any breed are almost always the fault of bad owners. Some of the sweetest dogs in the world are American Staffordshire Terriers.
Just like ANY DOG!! they will behave how they are taught! Being a dog owner, I believe that any dog, Chihuahua to Great Dane has the capability to bite someone, even if they are a tame dog. If people know how to respect animals, i.e. waiting for them to come to you, or giving them space if they walk away from you or are in their safe zone, then there will be less need to worry about how the dog could hurt someone... Especially Pit Bulls!
Love pibbles! They truly are nanny dogs
