St Francis Terrier is really not an appropriate alias for America's Dog, it just doesn't capture the true essence of the pit bull.
I propose a new nick name for America's Dog: Quietus
noun ( pl. quietuses )
death or something that causes death, regarded as a release from life.
Ah, the good ole days.
When people were held accountable for their dog's behavior and the dog was shot.
