Profile of a early 20th century pit bull owner and his pit bulldog
Pit Nutter Mission statement established in 1903. It's time for a new one guys! :-)
Outcault is probably laughing in his grave at how accurately his depiction of pit bull owners was and would still be 100 years later.
Buster Brown is the pit bull owning cartoon created by R. F. Outcault in 1903. Nutters wear this famous pit bull as a badge of honor but they fail to realize that Tige is no Lassie or Rin Tin Tin. In fact, Tige's primary contribution to the comic seems to be Buster's partner in mayhem.
