When I got my first, I was in my early 20s, (can't remember exact age). She was a mean ole unregistered blue pit, someone neglected.
My husband and I got our first together 2 years ago. Hubby wanted a pit, and I didn't but it as either a pit or a rott, and I couldn't see having a rott myself, so we went with the pit. We ended up getting him a friend, and well now the rest is history.
