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.

One dog breed achieved such a rock solid reputation with children that for 150 years it was known as America’s “Nanny Dog”. It could be found on the poorest farms and bleakest city neighborhoods with kids, rich people acquired them because they were the safest, most tolerant breed to have around their gilded progeny. Rich, poor, and everything in between, until recently Americans agreed that there were only a CERTAIN TYPE of people who would own a Pit Bull. PEOPLE WHO LOVED THEIR CHILDREN
