Because that is what Reese is — a puppy. Do puppies bite? Yes; they’re teething, it’s to be expected. Has he ever bitten me on purpose or when he was upset? No. And I doubt he ever will.
And tell me, Anon, why should I be afraid of him mauling me? Is it because he’s a Pitbull? If you’re going to say yes, let me tell you right now that that’s a load of bullshit (see what I did there?), and discrimination against Pitbulls isn’t something I care to hear about.

I trust Reese, and I’m confident that he’ll grow into a friendly, well-adjusted dog, because I know how I’m supposed to raise him. He is immensely obedient, loving, smart, and friendly — and he adores meeting new people and spending time with them, so long as they let him sit on their feet.
If he turned out any other way, it wouldn’t be his fault; it would be mine. Don’t blame the dogs — Pitbulls or not Pitbulls. Blame the people who decide that they want dogs like these, but who aren’t responsible enough to put in the effort to ensure that they are well-adjusted, happy, social animals.

And don’t ask me stupid questions about Reese again.
