24. They were bred to fight dogs and bull bait, they were also bred for gentle

qualities towards humans. You have to look at the whole story.

Any quality breeder will tell you to keep pits away from other animals if they are unsupervised. However, pits still have to be socialized WITH supervision, otherwise how are they to learn to behave with other dogs? Vets will tell you the same thing. They were bred to be vicious towards other animals, NOT humans. In fact, they were bred specifically to be gentle with humans. Look up a pit bull history.

And you are right, dogs ARE bred for characteristics and THIS dog was bred for gentleness towards humans.
