Thread: Pick the Pit Bull

  1. #1

    Default Pick the Pit Bull

    This is an interesting page:

    Pet Pitbull - Find the Pit Bull

    How many dogs in attacks are identified as Pits when they could be anything else, or just mutts?

    We all know the media all love a pit bull attack story. But how many of these attacks really have pits involved??

    This is so sad but true

    I guess to the non-doggy person a DDB could be taken for a pitbull???

    Recently in WA a poor elederly woman & her two dogs were attacked. On the news they said 'local rangers believe the dog was a pitbull...'

    They had already impounded (wording?) the dog. It made me so angry- they should correctly identify the dog and THEN say it was such and such a breed. Even better they should leave breed out of it entirely! If it turns out to not be a pitbull the damage is already done

    I like this site! I got my brother to go through it and it took him a bit to get it but admitedly a lot of the breeds on there are bulls that are not in Australia. But what a good idea to show just how easy it is to get it wrong!

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!

    I think the DDB mix up can come with the commonly held myth that ABPT all have red noses. That's how ridgebacks and crosses can get mixed up in it as well. Sad but true...

    I didn't do too badly. I narrowed it down to two but my first pick was wrong. Right second time though...

    Yeh I had two picked and the APBT was one of them. It doesnt help that the pick is only a pup and the rest are adults but yeh, I think I only got it because I have researched a lot of the other breeds so I recognised them for what they were.

    It is interesting seeing just how many dogs could be mistaken for APBT. It isn't just the media that gets it wrong though. There are many dog owners out there who claim their dogs are APBT when they are not. I guess it sounds better than mutt but you can't blame the general Public for being mislead about what an APBT really looks like when there are people claiming their xbred APBT or mixed breed dogs are actually APBT. I know that the breeder of my bitza dog claim the pups are pure APBT when not.
