Are you familiar with Colorado at all? What is a big city and a huge city to OP? There's Denver, there's the sprawl north and south of Denver, and that's about it.
Jobs are the important factor. I doubt you'll get many answers without more specifics, so let's hear them!

Default No

Colorado is only pit bull friendly if you hang in a neighborhood full of cage fighting, tattooed-up, low rent idiots. This mainstream idea that pit bulls are so sweet is just ridiculous. When a pit bull goes off, people always get hurt. No, we do not need anymore pit bulls................

Default hard facts

dog bites 2012

I am not sure how people can argue with these kind of stats. 30 dog attack deaths this year and only 7 did not involve pits or rotts.

Oh and in our town the cops just look for a reason to shoot pit bulls...................they are sick of dealing with them.

You are ridiculous and that's a bunch of crap. I'd rather live next door to a pitbull than someone like you.

Clark, according to the Animal Law Center, 8 communities in Colorado have pit bull bans: Aurora, Castle Rock, Commerce City, Denver, Fort Lupton, Lone Tree, Louisville and Wellington.

Check out Canon City-there are a bunch of threads on it. Lots of prisons there and you will probably be able to find a job in criminal justice. It's pretty close to Colorado Springs for city stuff. The RE market is affordably priced, just steer clear of the epa clean up site (Cotter mill). Construction jobs will be a little tougher since building has stalled here like everywhere due to the bursting bubble.
My ex has a pitbull and she says it is the sweetest, most loveable dog that she's ever had (and she's had lots!). I think it comes down to how the animal was raised.

Way to be rude... just because pit bulls have a bad rep because of the way they are rasied gives you no right to tell me anything about my dog. And for your information judging people because of their dog... really?
