A girl and her dog. In this era Pit Bulls were called the “nanny dog” because of their kind, gentle, and loyal temperament. 

Pit Bulls were NEVER known as “Nanny dogs”. No breed of dog was ever known as “nanny dogs”.

There are no articles in the breeds history that speaks about them being “nanny dogs”.

False information kills.

The one and only, very first instance of the words “nanny dogs” ever being used was when a Staffordshire Bull Terrier fancier said that because of their love and gentleness for children, they were LIKE NANNIES but in dog form. She never even IMPLIED that these dogs were used as nannies or “nanny dogs”. Ever. Not once.

Then the dogmommies got ahold of this information (which is from the SEVENTIES when dog fighting had been going on for a LONG fucking time) and ran with it

"Pit Bulls", American Pit Bull Terriers, American Bullies, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, etc etc they HAVE NEVER BEEN, AND NEVER WILL  BE NANNY DOGS

THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE INSTANCE OF THESE DOGS BEING BRED AS “NANNIES”

STOP IT WITH THIS MYTH

Dogs are not babysitters. No dog should be left unattended with small children. Small children should not be allowed to poke, prod, sit on or test the patience of any dog.
