    Pugger if you lived in our area you would like Dobes...We have quite a few around here and the owners are heavily into Obedience and they are all lovely dogs, We have about seven that we meet at trials and shows here. I like them.
    Pets are forever

    Yeah, for all my bitching and moaning about Aus breeding and temperament, I like Dobies, too, Newfsie.

    Don't see many round the obedience circles here- just in the conformation ring (don't get me started on that)...

    But, seriously, I was just trying to say that there are multiple breeds who are prone to the 'idiot moron bogan factor', not just APBT's. I don't have head in the sand, I just can't see BSL being an answer to a very serious question.

    No, Pugger, a Pug mightn't. But my dogs, my mother and myself were attacked and injured recently by a JRT. (Reported to council, no action taken. Council people laughed at us despite mum having bite on leg).

    Which leads me to another question- is it the terrier, not the pit or the bull that is linked to the determination seen?

    There are many bogans who will get a PB for the tough guy factor. The "don't mess with me or the dog will kill you" type attitudes. They don't bother containing their untrained menaces or they just can't control them because they have no idea how to control a large breed dog. Why is it that 90% of the time, it is a PB "type" mixed bred or full breed that makes the news? Do you think the general population are so stupid that they will get a labrador mixed up with an AMstaff or PB? The general public aren't that stupid.
    A PB in the right hands, bred properly and well contained, I have no issue with. That goes for any dog.. especially a large breed dog with the type of "traits" a PB has.
    I know many of you will blame the deed and not the breed and are fighting a great cause, but seriously, get your heads out of the sand. They are a problem breed because the wrong people have them and/or breed them.
    The dogs are not the problem. The owners are. BSL makes them even MORE appealing to the 'idiot factor' simply because they are banned...

    Yes people do mistake labs for pit bulls... They also believe that only pitbulls attack people, that every other breed is safe so if a dog attacks a person it has to have pit bull in it...

    Education is the answer, regardless of your personal feelings toward the breed.

    Oh, btw, don't believe everything you read in the media. Pitbulls are the scapegoats at the moment so of course they will be heavily featured in the news. Did you hear about the man here in qld who had his up & down his arms bitten and bleeding from his two ridgebacks? How about the 5 year old needing plastic surgery after being attacked by the family's maltese cross poodle? Or the lady whose Border Collie was torn apart by a loose german shepherd? Or the hundreds of other bites from many other breeds and crosses that have happened over the last few years? Those 3 examples have occurred in the last 5 months.

    I think people should have a look a Heelers as these are known people biters.
    So as it has been said a many time on here it just isn't down to one particular breed they all have teeth and this means they all can bite and it is time others start to listen to those who know more about this than I do.
    I am listening to them so it ain't that hard to read and understand people.

    What I am trying to say is that the breed attracts moron owners.

    My ex had a Husky which bit a girls face off. The dog was caught wondering by her mother and tied up while waiting for the pound to come and get him. She put a bowl of water out and left her 3 year old out there alone with him. She went for the bowl and SNAP.
    The fact was, my ex got the problem dog off a friend. He never socialised it and he didn't contain it. He was a dipshit pure and simple. If it had of been a different breed, perhaps the outcome may not have been as severe..who knows.

    As far as Jack Russells go.. they are a vicious, hyperactive breed. I wouldn't mind if they were put on the dangerous breed list with some of their owners. The difference with JR's is, they don't attract as moronic an owner, as in, they don't get it them as big scarey, tough guard, fighting dogs. They still seem to not be able to train them to be decent pets though (there are always exceptions to the rule).

    My neighbors are prob the most stereo type of these gog owners.
    Just got a lovely little pup. When I asked what breed although it was quiet obvious I was told a red nose. hmmm.
    Well ive never seen the pup leave its yard and it's been there for about a month or 2.
    The male owner early 20's was arrested and charged with drug offences and has been in jail for about a week now. So I guess the Pitty is protection for his girlfriend

    Unfortunately that is the type of people the pity and other "tough" breeds attract.
    I know for a fact that this dog is not registered as a dangerous dog ( or at all it wouldn't surprise me )

    And when the 'Pitbulls' are gone what breed will these undesirables move onto next ?

    Rotties , Mastiffs , Bull Terriers ....the list could be quite extensive.

    Most know what happened to us earlier in the year due to 2 wandering ACD. The ACD has sat at the top of the bite stats for quite some time now . The ACD is a well known human aggressive dog.

    Best be picking another breed to sit on that tuckerbox do you think?

    Tessa it doesnt need to be registered as a Dangerous Dog . It is supposed to be registered asa Restricted Breed. And see....here comes that red nose again Just because a dog has a red nose does not make it an APBT .

    My mistake. Had restricted in my head. Dangerous came out.
    I no there dog is a pb cos their braggin all over Facebook about it.
    I'm not saying anything bad about the breed I know several ppl who have them and they are the most gentle loving dogs. What I ment in that post was that my drug f**ked criminal neighbour is one of the ppl that give the breed a bad name by letting the sweet puppy grow up without socialization and

    I own 2 rotties and know that they are up there with the dogs that those kind of people like and that they do have the potential to be aggressive and dangerous if not correctly socialized and educated. I hope I'm doin my part by having 2 well behaved good examples of the breed to show that they can be family pets.
    When lily comes to work with me and all the people at the nursing home want pats and no one flinches or is scared of being eaten it really makes me proud.
