Pit Bulls as Nanny Dogs.Posted: June 4, 2011
Pit Bulls used to be the ultimate baby sitter apparently, it’s nickname even being the ‘nanny dog.’ One blog put up a bunch of these pictures here, showing off the breed as babysitter.
“In temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before he bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the Golden Retriever. The second most tolerant was the pit bull.”
… and more on it on Yahoo here.
So not only did I finally figure out a use for our dog, but it’s nice to know we have a babysitter now, too.
