    My early experiences with the breed were always bad ones. Always a 20 something bong smoking male with a pittie that looked like it was fed roids for breakfast everyday. I used to worry about the one two doors down from me all the time that was mainly because i knew the owners past and what he was capable of.
    Even now at the local dog park i'm still weary whenever i see one, even around Nero. Sorry i havent seen enough to change my mind yet. That said putting a dog to sleep just for appearance is beyond me.

    If you're seeing pitbulls that look like they're on steroids then my guess is you're not actually seeing an APBT. While they're certainly made of muscle, proper APBT's are not chunky muscle bound dogs, they're fairly slim, extremely athletic dogs.

    Do you want me to put up pics or links directly from breed sites so we can discuss what is muscle and what is athletic? How many atheles do you know that dont look musclular. I understand you dont like my opinion but im speaking from "PERSONAL"experience

    That was the breed we only ever had (mostly cause they were so abundant in country towns in NZ) many of ours were pig hunting dogs/indoor pets. I remember my mums b/f at the time proudly hung their lineage papers on our wall for all his mates to see (as a teen girl i found that really weird lol). When i moved here i was so excited at getting a 'fluffy, cutesy" type dog cause i hadnt really experienced having a 'pretty' dog before (grandfather had rotties, mum & b/f had pitties & red/blue heelers). As much as i love Molly, id prefer a pitty over anything anyday. But i refuse to run the risk of having my beloved pet taken away. So until that day...

    Haha Harley and Bella are like this too, you wouldn't come in the yard if you didn't know what they are like. We've come home before to friends running around the yard playing ball with the two of them, worst guard dogs ever although you wouldn't think so by the display they put on.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Aaah so this is why you hate the breed so much. Did you actually have a bad experience with the dog or was it just the owners that you dislike.

    I'm not a fan of pitbulls, but for the sake of a ridiculous poll like with an obvious purpose I voted NO.
    And yes, I am allowed my opinion, same as I have had to listen to people on this site say how much they hate/dislike toy breeds.

    FFS I'm glad your all happy with your pit bulls as I am with Neo's, but give it a rest. The post was a question to which I gave my answer, first it's guessed by mymatejack, that the dog i spoke of wasn't a pittie because I used the steroid line in describing its muscles, far out even went as far as saying pitties are athletic not muscular?? all short haired dogs I can think of show muscular form, this dog however was in incredible shape hence the comment
    Now Jadielee has come out with this is why you HATE pitties so much??? I answered a question about whether i was afraid of them, did I say I hated them so much?? Do I need to be attacked by one to be afraid of one?? Clearly it sounds like it by the scrutiny.
    Everyday I see people who are terrified of Nero, I see it as fact of life, not everyone will love Neo's regardless of thier good nature, it would be fair to say there are some not good natured Neo's out there, pity you can't see that with your chosen breed.

    I take it you can't show a purebred pitbull that is musclebound as you originally stated?
