Unfortunately that’s not the case. They were bred from Staffordshire terriers and Bull Terriers to Pit Fight. They do make great catch dogs, but it’s the fighting heritage that makes this so. Pitbulls have a bad hunting nose but their strength and “gameness” make for great catch dogs. For those who don’t know how this works: bay dogs corner the hog off the leash and a catch dog(s) will be brought in on a lead to hold the boar/sow down. The pig is then either hobbled or killed according to the hunter’s taste. Dogs with fighting heritage make wonderful catch dogs as is evidence in the Dogo Argentino and its Cordoba Fighting Dog heritage. It is not a natural behavior to latch onto a 300lb muscle with knives on it’s face but a game dog will have a go. Pits can be great dogs but they require very vigilant owner.
