These are our first dogs. Had both of them since about 8 weeks old. Both dogs are rescues. Bentley is the Pitbull and he's now about 55 lbs. Unsure if he is pure or a mix - he physically appears to be pure bred. We got him as a companion for Daisy the boxer mix. They get along well and are good playmates.
We became interested in the breed through a dog park. One of daisy's best friends was a pit mix so we thought we would go with that. He is very smart and loyal. Shows no aggression towards humans even during feelings. I can put my hand in his food while he eats and he won't touch it at all. I can put my hand in his mouth and he will pull away or push my hand out. He can be mischievous with shoes and flip flops so we have learned to watch him. We crate him when we are out to prevent him chewing things up. Overall very pleased with the dog.
