This puppy looks cute and sweet, and not at all vicious. He is an American Bull Terrier, often called a "Pit Bull". If he is raised with love and gentleness he will be a great family pet. If he is taught to be mean and aggressive, people will be afraid of him. Part of preventing dog bites is in how the animals are raised and trained.
Many of us refer to our pets as our best friends, but a 4-year-old boy can claim his cat is not only his best friend but his hero. She proved that the human-animal bond is strong, and that cats can be just as loyal and protective as their canine counterparts!
