Because many people aren’t skilled at properly training dogs, pit bulls have received a bad reputation for being vicious and aggressive due to attacking people. However, the nature of a pit bull is not aggressive at all; in fact, with the proper training and care, pit bulls are the most loyal and kind dogs you can have. While they don’t necessarily socialize well with other dogs unless raised around them, pit bulls are great with humans. Because of these issues, pit bull dog names, when considered, often lean toward the attack dog stereotype. However, pit bull dog names don’t have to be aggressive, especially since your dog can be mellow.
Rather than focusing on the negative media that has been given these well bred, tough and sturdy animals, choose pit bull dog names that are flattering. Think of names that sound tough but not aggressive or angry. For example, one favorite name for such a strong breed would be Hero. Also, if you rescue an adult dog or one old enough to have developed a visible personality, you can choose pit bull dog names that fit this personality. Below are a few thoughts that may give rise to an entirely new outlook on pit bull dog names. Feel free to use them, if you like.
