After all it is a dog at the end of the day! And why they are very tolerant that's no reason to put them to the test that would be stupid and unfair to both the dog and the child.
Do you question the nanny dog claims Bigboy?

Judging by my comments No there's no reason too cause I believe they are Nanny dogs And yes there will be bad dogs in any breed it's a combination of things that make them bad! Only today I saw a very laid back staffy pup only 12 weeks old and not boistrous one bit ( Not saying a boistrous pup is a bad thing either so long as that is kept in check too!) so that pup is going to be a great dog from the onset providing it's brought up right

because you can't say that every dog of a certain breed will definately have certain traits... any label is unfair but in my experience they have a certain gentleness around children other breeds don't have.

I've never seen a pitbull full bore pile over a toddler like i have another breed. I've seen their wiggle butts knock one over but never a full on hit. Or never jumping up and excessive roughness...maybe excessive kisses that gets too much....but there is a difference. Other breeds will trample all over a kids with no regard whereas a pitbull will use more care and caution...

At least that is the typical experience I have seen...even with the most high strung pitties....they all seem to tone it down around the kids

Okay, so lets be clear on this. After reading the entire article, the four of you agree that you honestly believe that the pit bull was actually referred to as the nanny dog as early as the latter part of the 19th century and the first part of the 20th century?

That answers my question as far as Monkey, Bigboy, Techie and Big red are concerned. Thank you for your responses!

I wish I knew how to post a poll in regards to this question. Perhaps a poll would provide more responses.

So you now how to set a poll up then! I think you are allowed 10 options and of course multiple choices etc or are you saying you aren't sure of the questions you want to ask? I think a poll is a great idea BTW

I honestly don't know how to set up a poll. Here's a general idea of what I would want to ask and the choices for responses. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The question would be along these lines:
After reading the entire article do you still believe that the pitt bull really was referred to as the Nanny dog in the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

Choices for replies would be:
Undecided: I wish there was more factual information available.
Yes. I still believe it.
No. I think the myth began with the much more recent pit bull advocate groups.

Applesmom you set up a new thread in the normal way Then before you submit your new post scroll down the page and you will see a poll link (set up a poll) click on that and there you can add a a title for your poll then you set up the options you can leave certain things blank like number of days the poll will run for and you can also set up so just for registered users only etc, etc I am pretty sure you can do it! Good luck
