Looks can be deceiving, and the same certainly applies for these gentle giants. 

There is a common misconception that breeds such as Pit Bulls, Staffies or Rottweilers are aggressive or to be feared but, as any loving and responsible owner will know, this can be far from the truth.  

These photos show that they are really big softies at heart, who will go out of their way for a little love and affection! You can’t get any sweeter than that!
