non-existent to high, but it's important   To note that pit bulls were never bred to be 
aggressive toward humans. They are actually   Better known for their friendly nature and 
score exceptionally well on temperament tests.
  They may alert their owners to the presence 
of someone around their home and may defend   Their owners if they are threatened, but 
they are not reliable guard dogs. In fact,   Pit bulls are often at risk of being stolen

day, and make sure it's a combination of physical   And mental challenges. Mix up your routine with 
walks, training, and brain games to keep your   Pup focused. On Monday, take a long walk, on 
Tuesday play some trick training and sniffing   Games in the yard, on Wednesday hit the park – get 
creative! And if your pit bull has a dark coat,   Try to avoid the hottest hours of the day 
when taking walks to prevent overheating.
  But hey, let's be real; while these dogs are 
neither super lazy lap dogs nor working dogs   With endless energy reserves, they do need a 
moderate amount of daily exercise to stay healthy.   Ultimately, it all depends on what you consider 
a "considerable amount," but we would say they're   About average.

Question number 9: Are they affectionate?
  This one is a big yes; they are very loving 
companions. In fact, since the 1900s,   Pit Bulls, Staffies in particular, have earned

Question number 10: Do they have locking jaws?
While it does sound kind of cool,   This is a misconception.
It turns out that the idea that   Pit Bulls have locking jaws is a complete myth. 
In reality, the structure of Pit Bulls' jaws is   No different from that of other dog breeds. Pit 
Bulls were selectively bred for their strong jaws   And musculature, with their ancestors being 
English bull-baiting dogs used to hold large   Animals like bears and oxen. After bull-baiting 
was banned, some individuals began breeding Pit   Bulls to fight each other, crossing them with 
smaller terriers to produce more athletic dogs.
  Yet contrary to popular belief, there is no 
special physical mechanism that allows Pit   Bulls to lock their jaws. A comparison of a Pit 
Bull skull to the skull of any other breed will   Reveal that they share the same characteristics 
and general bone structure. However, one trait   That Pit Bulls are known for is determination. 
When they bite down on something, they do so   With a great deal of enthusiasm, which can make 
it appear as if they have a locking jaw.
