Why Pitbull?

Pitbull Racing was formed to honor the strength, determination and awesomeness of the pitbull breed. Our team embodies the best qualities of this breed: Fast, focused and fun. Pitbulls are not how they are portrayed in the news. They are fantastic dogs that have been exploited by criminals, gangbangers & thugs. Our goal is to dispel the bad reputation of the breed and encourage people to adopt the dogs waiting on death row in their local shelters.

Members of this racing team have worked with law enforcement officials to shut down Pitbull fighting rings. If you suspect dog fighting in your area, please contact your local police department. If you don’t say something, more dogs will die. You can always email us for information on how to put these losers out of business. Thank you.

Some things you should know about Pitbulls:

Myth: A pit bull is more likely to bite me than another dog.

Fact: Pit bulls are even less likely to bite than many other types of dog! Breed groups commonly identified as pit bulls have consistently scored at or below average for aggression when compared to other dogs. Temperament evaluations by the American Temperament Test Society give American Pit Bull Terriers a very high passing rate of 82.6%, while the average passing rate for the other 121 dog breeds tested was only 77%.

No spayed/neutered, indoor pit bull has ever killed a person.

According to studies by the CDC, a person is more likely to be killed…

– by a family member
– by a falling coconut
– in a bedroom slipper-related accident
– choking on a marble
– drowning in a 5-gallon bucket
– getting struck by lightning

…than by a pit bull.

What do they act like?

The most important thing to know about pit bulls? They’re just regular dogs. While pit bulls are known to be fun-loving, energetic, and social, they all have unique personalities and should be judged as individuals.

Because their lineage can vary so widely, it is impossible to make broad statements about the “pit bull temperament.” A dog is just a dog, regardless of whether it’s been labeled as a “pit bull,” and all dogs are individuals.

Though few shelter pit bulls can be directly traced to the classic American Pit Bull Terrier, a standard temperament has been identified for this breed that defies common stereotypes. The United Kennel Club describes the American Pit Bull Terrier as follows:

“The essential characteristics of the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) are strength, confidence, and zest for life. This breed is eager to please and brimming over with enthusiasm. APBTs make excellent family companions and have always been noted for their love of children.”

The United Kennel Club goes on to state, “The APBT is not the best choice for a guard dog since they are extremely friendly, even with strangers. Aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed.”

A pit bull’s behavior, like that of any dog, is a reflection of the humans who manage it. When loved, cared for, and set up for success, they make ideal family companions.
