The may not want to believe it, but Pitbulls naturally have an aggressive temperament. They were initially bred to chase and catch animals and hold them down until their master arrived. Pit bulls start to develop their aggressive personalities around three years of age. Pitbulls are excellent fighting machines, and they are deadly in a confrontation. They might be so aggressive that you cannot have other pets in the house.

Many Pit bull owners will also tell you that their Pits are loving and caring animals and they like being around their humans.
