These signs include yelping, trembling, hiding, ear pinning back, lips tightly curled, eyes rolled back in the skull, and an aggressive posture.

5 Signs a Pit Bull Will Attack
Some people believe that all pit bulls will attack, but this is not true. There are specific characteristics that identify a pit bull as being more likely to attack.
One of the most common signs a pit bull will attack is when the dog starts to show aggression towards people or other animals that it may not have previously shown aggression towards. This can be seen as early as when the puppy is just a few weeks old and can escalate over time.
Other signs that a pit bull may be ready to attack include growling, lunging, and charging at people or other animals. If you see any of these signs in your pet pit bull, it’s essential to take action immediately and seek advice from a qualified animal expert.
