    Default An Apology to Breed Ban Enthusiasts

    This is American, but I thought it was nice

    I'm sorry you are frightened of my dogs and are trying to have them killed because they are pitbulls.

    I'm sorry you lack the understanding of this breed's true history, gentleness with people, wonderful temperament, intelligence and behavioral conformation.

    I'm sorry you won't read the ATTS stats regarding our breed's true temperament, putting it in the top four for temperament, scoring better than breeds like Golden Retrievers, and Cocker Spaniels.

    I'm sorry that you side with and protect animal abusers by marking the breed of dog, and not the irresponsibility of the owner. I'm sorry that by your logic I could steal a car, run some people over with it and then you can blame the make of car for the accident, as I walk free.

    I'm sorry you generalize one breed of dog with one group of people. I'm sorry you can't see the love and determination that many often highly educated, non-criminal and "normal" types of people show towards this breed and the great personal sacrifices that they make to take care of their dog responsibly.

    I'm sorry you cannot go into the shelters and see the hundreds of abandoned and abused pitbulls, dying only for the inane "crime" of being born the breed they are. I'm sorry you cannot see the look of disappointment in their eyes as someone walks by their kennel, and refuses to consider adopting them based on an ill educated fear mongering reporter. I'm sorry that you cannot be there when the animal looks at a human for the last time, and in spite of being betrayed by all humans they have met; their tail still wags as someone approaches with the syringe of Euthanol.

    I'm sorry you cannot be there when law enforcement shoots one of your dogs dead inside it's own home in front of the children it mutually loves for simply getting off the dog bed and walking over to say hello with it's tail wagging. I'm sorry you cannot be there to rescue pitbull puppies from a plastic bag in a dumpster, dumped there by someone switching their illegal and inhumane activities to another, more lucrative breed.

    I'm sorry you cannot understand the difference between canine and human aggression, in the way that this breed can. Yes, I'm saying my pitbull is smarter then you.

    I'm sorry that the medieval witch-hunting genetics of intolerance, generalization, and racism make you feel the need to vilify a breed of dog. I'm sorry that justice, equality, tolerance, common sense are all things you hold dear as a fellow Americans, and expect from others, but do not yourself offer them towards a pitbull or its caregiver. I'm sorry that you don't take the constructive time to petition changes in the criminal code that would deal out serious punishment to the real criminals and animal abusers.

    I'm sorry you cannot see the disappointed look on a puppy's face when the people petting it quickly frown, and walk away when you tell them it is a pitbull. I'm sorry you feel the need to terrorize my family and my dogs for crimes we never have and never will commit. I'm sorry you don't have to live in fear of your dog's safety from hysterical and mentally unstable people trying to inflict all manner of evil upon your dogs.

    I'm sorry that you cannot see my breed working in some of the best Search and Rescue groups in the world, saving countless lives each year. I'm sorry our media censors and refuses to print the breed name “pitbull” when in connection with a positive act such as saving a person or child from a burning house, drowning, wild attacking animals, etc. I'm sorry you cannot see the many pitbulls registered as therapy dogs and bringing so muchjoy to another misunderstood, neglected demographic in our society, the senior citizen.

    I am sorry you cannot watch a pitbull kiss a child, step carefully over a kitten, or play in a sunbeam. I'm sorry you cannot wake in the morning to feel a warm pitbull cuddled next to you in bed, and know that you are their total world, and even if the house caught fire and trapped you, they would stay with you to the end.

    But, now that I really think about it, I'm not at all sorry you don't own a pitbull--you do not deserve the pleasure of one.

    I don't miss him at all. Or the other one.

    It's interesting the car analogy. I've seen people who own big 4WD judged for it, and people who ride Harleys - not just soccer mums and bikies.

    I nipped to shops in my lunch break last week. Was warned "dont go in the shop, there's a pitbull in there" by a customer outside. And yes, there it was, doing that xilly mastiff snakey dance of greeting. smiling like a dolphin, and leaning on my legs. oh yeah, very scarey dog this!
    "its a stray pitbull, be careful!" warned the shop keeper.

    Dog came to my bag, that has several decomposing dog treats in it. I fed her one of the less sticky ones. She then followed me to counter, and then walked at my heel, all the way back down street to its home. It had sutures from a op. Was contained in garden and had got out when her child left side gate open at lunch break. Very anxious owner, who knew that this could be PTS if found on streets. Very grateful to have her so called convalescing girl who had a op 2 days prior.

    thankfully, nobody else took at look at the tag with her address on it. So cant report it.

    Generally pitbulls aren't my thing, I mean most of the ones I've met are great dogs, I'm just not a fan of the beefier breeds, but I can't stand the prejudice against them. They're as harmless as any other dog, and yeah, there are bad pitties, but there are bad everythings. Bad BC's, bad greyhounds, bad GSDs, etc. There are bad dogs of every breed but that doesn't define the entire breed. Annoying.

    The only thing I'll say on the stereotype of who owns it, is a some people I've noticed have pitbulls because they're 'tough' dogs - they look like they could be mean, and they treat them bad to make it so. But this is true of any dog - take a lovely golden retriever and beat it around the head, starve it and pit it against others and it'll go mad, just like the others. Most people who have them are normal people (yeah, normal - those who abuse them and make them fight aren't normal in the head), and they're just a pet. Wish people would see some sense. These ones get the fame because their dogs are reported, spread around the media. You don't hear about the good ones because it's not news.

    Did anyone see the english dog training series we discussed on here, but i cant remember the name. There were 4 in the series, and the army dogs were magnificent. Anyhow, the guy on the show, that had a pit said that he liked his dog to pull, coz it looked well ard, viscous like.
    Is this the stereotype you mean striker?

    I remember training obedience for a GSD club back in the uk. And guys would call, roughly around 9 mnths, with a dog/dog aggression, and people reactive GSD. And they arrive that week, with the dog up on its back legs, with Muscle Mary owners on the end of the leash. That seemed to be a remarkable stereotype thang going on there.

    I have a few myself. Old people have small dogs for eg.
