Pitbulls are among the most tolerant dogs tested

This infographic shows that Pit Bull Terrier’s are among the most tolerant dogs.  I visited the American Temperament Test Society’s (ATTS) page just to confirm this graphic and it looks to be accurate.  The bad reputation pit bulls have are based on multiple factors from the media perpetuating this myth, to irresponsible owners who use pit bulls.  According the ATTS pit bull terriers rank among the highest of nicest dogs.* 

* It should be noted that the infographic above only shows breeds that had 400 or more dogs tested. There are several other breeds that rated higher in the “nice” factor but did not have a high quantity of dogs tested for that breed.
