I always feel safe with my pit around. Best dogs ever no matter what people say about them. I have a 100 lb colby pit who's awesome. Great with the kids and great with house protection. They're just naturals at it.
Mine was fawn colored and about 80 lbs. In her prime. She was so loyal and such a great friend. Although she was as tough as any beast walking, she was nothing like the media version of a pit bull.
