There is a lot of useful information on this site about pit bull behavior. Can you tell us more about the situation with this girl's puppy? Did she have a litter and this is a leftover? If so, does she plan on spaying the mother so she doesn't bring more puppies into this world that she may have a hard time finding homes for? If not, how did she acquire this puppy.
You should have some background information on this puppy if at all possible to know what kind of temperment the puppy may have. If this girl bred 2 dogs with less than perfect temperments, those traits can be passed onto the puppy. I also wouldn't recommend supporting her breeding efforts by taking one of her puppies.
If she bought this puppy from a breeder and can no longer care for it, maybe you could ask her which breeder she got the puppy from and contact them yourself. They may even let you meet the parents if they have them on the premesis. If she adopted the puppy from the humane society or SPCA, ask her for the paperwork that came with the puppy.
All of that aside, I would actually recommend going to a rescue and getting a pup from it. The chances of knowing what the pup's temperment whether that girl got her puppy from a breeder or if you got a pup from a rescue are about the same. At least if you go through a rescue, you are saving a pup's life and you are not supporting a BYB.
Good luck with whatever you choose to do. I hope you'll post pics of whatever puppy or dog you and your family decide on.

We just always make sure we are supervising if they are with the dogs. But that just seems like common sense, right?
Just keep in mind they need lots of exercise and it doesn't hurt to get them some good obedience training. Suprisingly, the PetsMart training we used for our dogs was pretty good. Just something to think about! Let us know if you have questions!!!
