I have a British bull dog, and he is one of the sweetest dogs one could ever desire to meet. He loves company and will often try to ly on someone as a way of showing affection. He is also afraid of water and barks like a small dog but I still love him. I'm glad you like pit bulls too, they are also very sweet dogs if treated right.
I too miss our old dog Huntson. I remember that my brother (he was his dog) would tell me that Huntson would sometimes try to pull people's pants down when he was a puppy. He would bite their pants only, not their backsides thank goodness.
