I've been around many kinds of dogs, a lot, and been bitten three times in my life. A chihuahua, an English Springer Spaniel and a St. Bernard each bit me (also roughed up by a Newfoundland once,) but never a pit bull. Over and over, they have defied their reputation to me and proved to be gentle, loving guardians.
