    I read it to mean the same as you, Barbara. I’m not nitpicky about their usage of grammar.

    Thank you, Nat Geo, for sharing this. I have a pit bull and he is the sweetest thing, loves people, other dogs, and cats. And funny enough I was attacked by a beagle as a small child, though when people see the (huge) scar they almost always assume it was a pit bull.

    While I appreciate the idea, the author’s use of “brought to the US with the founders” in the mid 1800s makes it read like only so much inaccurate propaganda.

      I read that as meaning the founders of the breed. Since the previous statement says the breed was “created” in the 19th century, they couldn’t possible mean the founders of the US.

      It’s possible NatGeo meant the founders of the breed.
