Some of you may already know that I have a pitbull. I would like to tell you about pitbulls and how friendly they can be, and maybe change your mind about getting a pitbull yourself. I can tell you how a pitbull acts because I know from experience. When I first got my dog, Beatz, he was very scared and had to get comfortable around his new environment. Beatz was from Mexico and was still a pup when we brought him over to the States. When he arrived home, he was very small at the time, but had a lot of energy. He loved to run around the house and backyard and explore everything. He was rowdy, chewed on stuff, and destroyed all the dog toys we gave him into little pieces. There were times when Beatz used to destroy the furniture, but during the years we have been training Beatz to be a respectful dog and he is so calm around new people and acts very nice towards them.

As the months passed, Beatz grew up and gained more knowledge. He gave more respect towards us and the house and started listening to me and my family members. I taught him time to time when to go to the bathroom and how to be patient when waiting for food. We also taught him to do tricks like sit, paw, laydown, roll over, and put head down. Since my family is a religious family, they taught Beatz to keep his head down and pray together before he eats his meal.

I realized that pitbulls are just scared puppies that need someone in their lives to keep them company and show love towards them. When Beatz wants attention, he goes up to anyone and wants to be pet and scratched because he loves people more than he likes other dogs. Whenever my brother gets up from the couch to get anything, Beatz always gets up and takes his seat, pretending he is still. Beatz hates to be left alone and starts to cry and whimper loudly until you come back. Everytime one of my family members gets home, Beatz gets very excited to see us and starts to play and mess around. 

Pitbulls are very helpful in many ways. Whenever you feel down or sad, dogs are always there and comforting you to make you feel better. Pitbulls are also funny. They do the silliest things to get attention, such as chasing their tails, laying on their back, or sitting like they were humans. Beatz is the most lovable pitbull ever; whenever we have company over, he gives everyone the same amount of love. Even when there’s toddlers over, Beatz is like a father figure towards them he protects them as if they were his own kids and will keep them in one spo t. And when it comes to the younger kids, Beatz plays with them: they play catch or they just mess around with him. When Beatz goes up to the adults, he lays around the couch and wants to be pet. 

Having a pitbull is the best thing in my life. Beatz is my best friend and my brother at the same time. I love my pitbull because it loves me and everyone else. I hope I changed your mind about pitbulls. Next time you see a pitbull, just remember to show him or her some love and you won’t be scared.
