You lose a lot of other things as well, Casa, along with often gaining some undesirable traits. And those skills haven't been intentionally bred out, they've literally been lost by a singleminded focus on breeding for a certain 'look' to win in the beauty pageant show ring.

NOW - Michaela . . . why don't you PM Love4Pits and ask her directly? Let's see, I think she's up to four or five rescued Pitties now, along with all of her sled dogs, several cats . . .

My CJ is a staffy bull terrier mix and lives with an Anatolian and a Bandog (neo/pit). They are a family.

My stepson has a pitbull who is a sweety. When they come over, his dog plays with all of ours.

I think it all depends upon the temperament of the dog you get.

blue,
What does "Chihuahua-start digging your grave now," mean?? I just don't get that part.

On topic though, Pits are naturally dog aggressive. They are normally great with humans, but as with any other dog (such as the Poodles, the Border Collie, & Doxie, etc. that I have been bitten by), there is a chance it will bite. Raise your dog the best you can and to the best of his potential, but never leave a Pit alone with another animal. It is in their natural instinct to be suspicious of and possibly kill that animal.
My Chi is best friends with my grandmother's Amstaff. Do I ever leave them alone?? No. But I do enjoy sitting with them in the floor playing with them.

PS. Yes, I have been bitten by a few dogs and cats, but hey... I am a groomer, I work at a vet, and I have been raised around lots of creatures. Go figure

There are few traits more undesirable than the drive to hurt and kill another dog.
