92. I have a friend who works in pit bull rescue
These dogs rarely come from "loving, well cared for " homes. Nonetheless, Pit bulls are rarely human aggressive, and when I stay at her place, my friend's pit bull guards me in my sleep. She's not much of a fighter, but she is a good barker. Unlike another friend's mini daschund who is vicious. But given her size, most people don't view her as much of a threat.
