Pitbulls are the same as any other dog the way they turn out is dependant on the owner.. If your neighbour is a macho idiot the dogs is most likely going to be that way too but if your neihbour is a gentle person theres a good chance the dog will be as well..

Oh no!!!!...馃槵 neighbours in my area are just a complete nuisance and also stupid to the core!!....
I am scared they might use the dog for their "Dominance" purposes...Chances are that I am getting killed by a Pitbull!!馃槄

Whoa wait a minute.. How much do you know about beagles?
This is not an easy dog . dont be fooled by the cute look , big eyes and the floppy ears, they are pure hunting dogs with a prey drive like you wouldnt beleive. My 14 year old blind beagle took off after a rabbit and I had to chase him for 45 minutes.. They are not trustworthy off lead.
On a related note (related to walking off leash) below is a short video of basset hound races (yes, that's thing). I won't tell you how it ends but when you watch is just imagine trying to walk a basset hound off leash. 98% of a basset hound's brain is hard-wired straight to their nose.... I'm sure many beagles get distracted like this too.

On a side note, my current dog is a poodle. Poodles have intermediate prey instincts and well developed herding instincts. They aren't often used as herding dogs because there are even better candidates for that job but a poodle's herding instinct makes it an outstanding dog off lead. They are intelligent, obedient and check almost constantly to see where you are.
