Pitbull Pet Insurance
Pitbull Health Insurance
Ironically, Pitbulls (also referred to as American Pit Bull Terriers, Bull Terriers, Pit Bulls) have ancestry that traces back to the U.K. during the 19th century. They are a medium-sized, muscular dog breed that are relatively healthy with an average lifespan between 12 to 14 years, which is longer than most medium-sized dog breeds. However, like any purebred dog, Pit Bulls are susceptible to hereditary disorders and other health issues.
