Do you know any famous Pit Bulls?  Well you are about to meet some great dogs!
See if you recognize any of the dogs below.

 

 



The pet of choice for the lead character on
UPN's TV show, 'Veronica Mars', is a pit bull.

The name of Helen Adams Keller is known
around the world as a symbol of courage in the face of overwhelming odds, yet she was much more than a symbol.
She was a woman of luminous intelligence, high ambition
and great accomplishment. She devoted her life to
helping others. Helen chose a Pit Bull as her family
companion. Here is a picture of Helen and her dog.

 



The Pit Bull was so respected in the early 1900's that the US Military chose an image of a Pit Bull to represent our country on war posters.



“Bud” was the first dog to take a cross-country drive in 1903 with his owner Horatio Nelson Jackson and a bicycle mechanic named Sewall Crocker. “Bud soon became an enthusiast for motoring," Jackson bragged, especially after his masters put a pair of their goggles on him to keep the stinging, alkali dust out of his eyes. Riding in front, Bud learned to watch the road ahead as intently as Crocker and Jackson, bracing himself for every bump and turn -- and becoming, his owner said, "the one member of our trio who used no profanity on the entire trip."

 



The Pit Bull is the only dog to have ever graced the cover of  Life Magazine three times.

 

 


Pit Bulls were also used in advertising campaigns.
