Many Pit Bull parents will tell you that they’ve never owned a sweeter dog, but the Pit Bull suffers from a scary reputation, due in large part to some irresponsible owners who have cultivated aggression in their dogs.
The word Pibble is being used more and more to help rehabilitate the Pit Bull brand. According to a recent article in The New York Times, Pibble is joining the word Pittie and some other cute nicknames to help convey the sweet and gentle nature of this loyal and loving breed.
According to dog breed experts, the public perception of the Pit Bull has improved since the years when dog fighting rings were often in the news. But people can still be afraid of them, and unfortunately some are still raised to be intimidating guard dogs.
Pit Bull advocates are eager to spread awareness about the true nature of this misunderstood dog, and feel that the smile-inducing name Pibble can help win over hearts and minds.
