Bringing home a staff terrier/pit bull

Not looking forward to the social issues surrounding her breed though. I told a coworker we were getting her and the 1st thing he told me was “Did I tell you my wife got bitten by the neighbor’s pit bull a year or 2 ago?” Well, everything I read (it’s been interesting researching the Staffordshire bull terrier vs. American staff…it’s all a bit convoluted) says they are very affectionate and crave human attention…I think the problem ones just don’t get enough (or get out enough!)! I got good vibes from her, so we will just watch for any aggression and socialize her well. I just hope people aren’t afraid of us…lol, how could they be with my 3 little kids and I walking with her???
Taking her in Saturday for a checkup with the vet my sis works for (I will be LOVING the discounts, she gets good ones for up to 4 pets!)
Thanks for any support!
