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.
Jennifer Lopez used a pit bull in her 'I'm Glad' music video.
Petey from the “Little
Rascals” TV show was an American Pit Bull Terrier.
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.
Bulls were also used in advertising campaigns.
