Pit bulls are constantly thought to be the “bad” dogs of the bunch, but according to Jarad Derochey, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
“An authority of temperament testing in dogs proved that pit bulls were ranked at 86 percent of passing temperament, while the average dog ranks 77 percent,” Derochey told InsideEdition.com. “That means pit bulls are the second-highest temperament of all breeds.”
But some are still skeptics. So Derochey often posts videos and photos of his two young boys interacting with the family’s pit bulls to try and help break the stereotype and ultimately prove that any dog will act how you train and raise it to act.
We have certain demeanors because of what we grew up around, so why do people think it’s so different for these beautiful dogs?
The video below features just some of the wonderful bonding moments Derochey showcases on social media. If you’re a dog lover, you’ll enjoy each and every one of them.
His dog Belle and 1-year-old son Cruz cuddling on the couch is definitely a sight for sore eyes.
But he still gets hateful comments.
What do you think about these adorable photos and videos, are they too close for comfort? Or just comfortable enough?
Derochey says his kids are safe, and from the looks of things, I would have to agree.
