The pitbull is a divisive canine - people either love them or don't like them. Learn how to draw a pitbull face and show your love for this unique dog breed.

The pit bull terrier was first bred in Great Britain during the 1800s. They were given their name in 1927.

The forebears of the pitbull were strong dogs able to take on animals such as bulls or bears.

Unfortunately, they were trained to participate in dog fights, and sometimes attacked humans as well. Today, advocates of the breed are still trying to overcome this negative reputation.

Pitbulls make intimidating and heartwarming cartoon characters. One example of this is the Pixar short Kitbull, about a fighting dog who befriends a tiny kitten. Another is Arnold the pitbull from Tiny Toon Adventures.
