Pitbulls were originally known as nanny dogs - because they are great with children and they will protect "their" children no matter what. They will literally put their own life on the line without giving it a second thought.
Interesting! Pitbulls use to be called "Nanny Dogs" they were the number one dog trusted with children and adults! Check out these photos
In the 1920s, pit bulls were referred to as "nursemaid dogs" because of how well they behaved with children!
