I have a pair of Pilgrims. I love them dearly but everyone is deathly afraid of them.. They are fine with dh and now even my kids are scared of them. I don't think they would actually bite anyone unless they were reached out at or provoked.. I guess I can't say for sure but I think their bark is worse than their bite. Back to my rant.. My family is afraid of them... most of my visitors are afraid of them. I feel like I am really outnumbered here! Dh tells me all the time to get rid of them because no one likes them. I DO! Is anyone else on here outnumbered like I am?
