Melissa Ignacio, Colorado 7/7/2015 12:15:58 PM I have heard pit bull owners swear by their dogs but what about when a stranger comes to call? I remember my neighbors bragging on how great their dogs were. Then a baby came up to the dog and poked it in the eye. The dog instantly locked its jaws on the baby's head. In the same week, a little girl was swinging at the playground at her school. She swung back and hit the dog. He jumped at her on the swing and bit her calf off her leg.So please tell me how a pit bull is so wonderful?
