Interesting. The people whom I know that have these breed of dogs are exactly the personality type you describe in this article. When my husband was younger and rough, he had a pit bull. If you crossed him, he'd latch onto you and never let go. With that type of lifestyle behind him, today he has no interest in dogs at all. When we first got together, I had a Boston Terrier. Yeah, I am quite obsessive (well-focused) when it comes to writing and researching on the computer even though I don't have the dog anymore.

Great article! I own a 2 yr old Greyhound who races competitively - but if I had a dog at home it would definitely be a Bulldog. I wonder what that says about me!
