My stepson's pit is the sweetest dog you'll ever meet. He loves everyone. With any dog, it's all in how you raise the dog.

I have to disagree there. You can't raise a Pit just like you would another dog. You can't raise a Pit like you would a Labrador. You can't let a Pit run loose at a dog park like you would 'any other dog'.
Yes, you have to socialize them, train them, etc. like you would 'any other dog' but they need more of a constant watchfulness.
I'd say since you are used to Akitas and Dobes, a Pit should be ok. Pitties are wonderful with kids and people, (they were bred to NOT bite people) but they are dog aggresive and they should never be fully trusted around other dogs. You also have to make sure that your Pittie will never get into trouble. If it does, that is just one more bad thing the Public associates with Pits.
Anways, good luck to you.

Pit Bulls are wondeful dogs, however, they were bred to fight other dogs. The goal was to have dogs that were aggressive towards other canines, but sweet and calm towards humans. Once a fight had ended, the owners of the dogs needed to go into the pit to get their dog without being bitten. To be calm and well-behaved, it's important that pit bulls are socialized with other animals and small children.
Pit bulls and dog parks do not match. They are dog-agressive, and it doesn't depend on how they're raised--the breed is still dog-agressive.

Sorry about not being able to get the dog, but keep looking and I know you'll find one that's meant for you.

I'm not sure I agree with what your saying here. Why would you have to make sure you tell your company that your dog is a pit bull? I have people around my pit bull (3 and 4 year old kids included), and there is no reason for them to be uncomfortable or not do anything quickly. If you tell someone that comes over, "Don't make any quick movements" they are going to think your dog is mean. My 7 year old nephew runs around and plays chase in the house with my pit bull. A friend of mine brings her 4 year old son over sometimes, and he cuddles with the dog on the couch. If a dog is trained right, there is no reason to worry about it biting someone. Yes, a pit bull is very loyal and wants to protect their owners, but just because someone makes a sudden movement doesn't mean anything.
