Artist's Description

The American Pit Bull Terrier was created by interbreeding Old English Terriers and English Bulldogs to produce a dog that combined the gameness (a quality of fighting dogs or working terriers; eagerness despite the threat of substantive injury) of the terrier with the strength, tenacity, and athleticism of the bulldog. These dogs were initially bred in England, and arrived in the United States with the founders. In the U.S., these dogs were used as catch dogs for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt, to drive livestock, and as family companions. Some have been selectively bred for their fighting prowess.
The United Kennel Club (UKC) was the first registry to recognize the
American Pit Bull Terrier, in 1898.

American Pit Bull Terriers successfully fill the role of companion dog, police dog, and therapy dog.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………… “Pretty Pitty” is a painting that began as a freehand pencil drawing. Color was then added. Then it was digitally enhanced to intensify the colors. Graffiti, stars, and other shapes were added digitally, one by one. The creation of this image took more than 40 hours of detailed, tedious labor. The result is a unique piece of art that has a modern and contemporary look, yet a whimsical flavor. The dog’s eyes are particularly whimsical, showing a lovable side of the pit bull. Although pit bulls sometimes have a reputation of being attack dogs, many are family protectors.
