Pro: They're dogs.
Con: They're dogs. I prefer cats, and I consider the litterbox one of the great inventions of the past century.

Con: They're ugly.
Pro: They're ugly enough that some folks think they're cute.

Major con: Finding one which has been bred to be a good pet, rather than to meet someone's fantasies of a fighting dog, may be tough. I would *STRONGLY* suggest dealing only with a reputable breeder in this case. (Pit bulls aren't unique in this; there was a period where German shepherds were also overbred to the point of being damaged.)
