In other countries there are a number of strict restrictions on the content of the pit bulls.
In the US, this breed has always been popular and was used for dog fighting. Terriers and bulldogs were involved in its creation. The former awarded the pit bulls an ultrafast response, the latter with stubbornness and strength.

After a dogfight ban was imposed in America, pitbull breeding was prohibited. In the press flashed news about the attacks of pit bull terriers on people, accompanied by comments and creepy photos.
