The Working Pit Bull based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
I am learning a lot about American Pit Bull Terriers by reading this book and I am plaining on owening my own American Pit Bull Terriers sometime in my life. The American Pit Bull Terriers are truely amazing dogs.
I love that Diane Jessup has produced a book on her breed!! She, unlike many other authors of similar books, has been able to promote the good aspects of this awesome breed, while providing the reader with realistic ans helpful tips and info exclusively for their American Pit Bull Terrier. A great book for helping eradicate BSL.. I've placed one at the Shelter where I work, so that all the other ACO's can see the dog behind the bad breeding, and poor treatment!!
This book had excellent photos and information about the breed.I do think she should have put more emphasis on the sweet disposition, common sense way they conduct themselves, and possibly cautions to prospective 1st time owners.The only real problem I had was that she obviously feels disdain for certain breeds and for 'show' dogs(there are many that can still perform the duties they were intended for!),and that in an effort to show how wonderful this breed is, others are dismissed(there are a few other breeds just as versatile as APBTs - that is why 'they' are used so widely)as less 'admirable.'
What I like about this book is it doesn't act as if Pit Bulls are only good for fighting and worthless if they are not champions in the pit. This book shows you how the breed really is: a dog that can do it all. If you love Pit Bulls this book is a real treat to read.
