I Let A Pit Bull Near My Baby And This Is What Happened
Allow me to introduce you to Akamara.
She’s an American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT).
Now, I’d like you to meet Siegmund.
He is 1 day old.
He is a human.
Siegmund was born on November 26, 2014. He first met Akamara on the 27th. the parents NEVER leave Siegmund alone with Akamara — after all, she’s dangerous to him. She might quite figuratively snuggle him to death. Here’s what happens:
She gets pretty sad about it, but she’s only allowed to put her head near him, and only with eyes on her at all times. He’s just too small and she’s too insistently snuggly.
So, as you can see, this “ferocious” pit bull is not taking no for an answer…
he is determined above all — to cuddle this infant of 2 days.
Akamara really can’t help but cuddle the baby. It’s her instinct! Little known to most people, but American Pit Bull Terriers — one of several breeds commonly referred to under the broad title “pit bulls” — are nanny dogs.
As the United Kennel Club (UKC), which recognizes and classifies APBTs as a breed, states in their breed standard:
“APBTs make excellent family companions and have always been noted for their love of children.”
