Pitbulls are sweet, loving pups, and have, in popular media, the undeserved reputation of being aggressive and violent.
Although bred initially as fighting dogs, these pups have won the hearts of people with their affectionate disposition and gentle nature. While you can argue they’re predisposed to violence due to their breed’s original purpose, any good Mom or Dad call tell you a dog will become violent if their needs weren’t met and their training not properly done in the first place!
And in the case of Momma the Pitbull, she’s certainly well loved and pampered! Relaxing on the front lawn, she has some light-hearted play fights with Lucy the Dachshund puppy. Meanwhile, Mom’s in the background trying to take a photo of the two of them. But Lucy moves around too fast! Hopefully she managed to get a shot that isn’t too blurry.
Of course, regardless of how gentle and careful the bigger pup is, it’s always best to monitor any playtime between a big pup and a little one!
