The good, the bad, and the snugly about your new best friend

No breed of dog is the subject of more extreme feelings--both good and bad--than the Pit Bull. Man-eating monster or heroic nanny-dog: What's the real story? Are Pit Bulls the very best breed for kids? (Not always.) Is it all in how you raise them? (Not totally). Will they lick you to death? (Absolutely!)

In the fully updated 2nd Edition of Pit Bulls For Dummies, Dr. Caroline Coile--Dog Writer's Association of America Hall of Famer and former Pit Bull owner--sniffs out the reality behind the myth, rips through the dogma that both vilifies and sanctifies this unique family of dogs, helps you find the best source for your new family member, and shows you the latest and greatest ways to raise, train, and live with your own partying Pit Bull and reap the rewards of happy canine companionship for years to come.

* Decide if a Pit Bull is for you
* Evaluate Pit Bull sources, whether adopting, rescuing, or buying
* Care for all ages, from puppies to older dogs
* Deal with bad behavior
