The American Pit Bull Terrier was referred to by many as a “nanny dog” because of the way they look after, display gentleness toward and care for children. The pit bull’s likeness was used in print advertisements as a symbol of stability and honor.
In an effort to get back to the ‘glory days’ of these dogs, I have compiled an album of some great historical photos showing Pit Bulls of the past. While it’s hard to pick a favorite, I’d have to say I am partial to the picture of Hellen Keller with her beloved Pit Bull. Enjoy your trip and looking at these vintage Pit Bull photos.
