Pitbull is a dangerous breed of dog. Its breeding has been banned in USA. Nor it can be exhibited in a dog show there because of its violent and unruly temperament. Pitbulls have recorded history of biting their masters and their close kins. It is unfortunate that we the Indians fail to learn from others!
