    Not wanting to get into the arguement, just purely procrastinating so I don't need to study for my 8am exam tomorrow morning ...

    They look pretty 'meaty' to me....

    In my eyes this is how an APBT should look (of course without cropped ears )...




    This is an American Bully, which I think is some cross breed possibly...


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

    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.
    You say we can't see that there are good and bad in our chosen breed, how did you gather that? Short story for you... my little sister has 3 APBT's now, one beautiful boy who wouldn't hurt a fly, one that needs to be PTS because there is just something not right up there and a pup that may turn out the same. Now if I thought all APBT's were fabulous dogs (like you seem to think I do) I would think they are all fine and that she should keep the two bad cookies. These two dogs issues are purely due to bad breeding. Drugo's breeding dogs because they are illegal like the drugs they sell, it makes them more lucrative. Now there is a town full of drugo's that all have "red nose" pitties, that's going to end well isn't it. But who's fault will it be, the owners or the dogs?

    The reason why I say you hate them Peter is because the only time you seem to post any more is in posts relating BSL and the APBT and you never have a nice thing to say. Now you can like or dislike any breed you want, I'm not a fan of a lot of breeds as well. Yet I just keep it to myself. I also wouldn't want them wiped off the face of the earth either.

    I just couldn't say that I'm scared of pitties because I'm sure I wouldn't be able to identify a purebred one.

    I couldn't find the poll, not that I would have voted in it anyway, I could'nt care less what people are afraid of or are not afraid of, that's personal issues for them to work out if they want to. Some people are afraid of there own shadow eek.

    Lets get something straight, yes i posted in the Thurstons post because i disagreed with others because in my eyes they broke the law, thats my opinion isnt it. Wouldnt have cared less if it had been a poodle.
    Second this post was asking whether i was afraid of pitbulls, i merely stated that i dont trust them. i havent had a good experience that id be happy to write about, sorry.The fact that you keep your opinion to yourself is your choice not mine. sorry if you just want all good news stories unfortunately thats not always the case.
    Yes i said you cant see good or bad in your breed, you also said i hate the breed, mymate jack believes your breed doesnt have a muscular breed ( clearly photos show otherwise), can you see where this going? Nowhere, so why dont you just let me have my view and stop trying to change it or manipulate my words, its my opinion not yours.
    by the way i posted in the ipad thread yesterday.

    Well everyone knows my response

    I find it sad and frustrating that these posts often do nothing but perpetuate that the 'majority' of this breed is either 'bad-scarey' or owned by 'utter dead sh its' . It seems we are constantly trying to defend our breed .

    I have not yet been 'afraid' of a 'Pitty'. Have I been cautious around an obvious 'bull' breed I was not familiar with ? Of course ! But I am that way around any dog regardless of breed that I am not familiar with .
    That , I always thought , was just plain common sense ..... but then we all know what happened to plain old common sense over the years.....

    I'm very sorry that I need to single you out in this thread Peter , as it seems you have not yet had the pleasure of meeting a Pure , true to Type APBT . But because of that I need to draw on your post to hopefully , just maybe , educate just one person as to what is the usual backyard bred , tuff guys image of a 'pitty' ... 99 percent of the time these dogs are nothing like a Pit , in fact are that far removed from a 'true' Pit its downright laughable. Yet sadly this is why the breed is in even more peril . People claiming dogs that have been bred using Mastiff/Stafford/Boxer and yes , perhaps a dog that was made up of some Pit type blood somewhere along the line... but claiming they are in fact APBT . I have even seen a GSP mix recently that very much to an unexperienced eye could well have passed for a Pit 'type' dog , thing is , it wasnt. But if this dog figures in tomorows front page dog attack , guess what it is going to be labeled *sigh*

    Jadie put up a fair likeness of the breeds and even still I say the top dog looks slightly overdone to me for a true to type APBT. ( could be it looks like its a well loved - note- not spoiled- show type dog)

    An APBT is one of sleek , well defined 'hardness' of body , muscled yes but still flow in symmetry and be able to fulfill strenuos , athletic activity. The muscle bound type dogs being spoken of are certainly not of 'sleek' proportion and would not be able to undergo any form of hard exercise without detriment to their health/form and are not bred to do so. They are not APBT nor are they of 'type'.

    The Ambullies have been on the Eastern shores here now for a few years , it is only logic that they have spread , every breed has breeders that sell to whomever asks as long as they have the right amount of dollars in their hands. Half the piggers in town here have 'Ambull type' looking dogs.....and sadly yes , getting called 'Pit Bulls' . Seems to be a very hard uphill battle we fight for our breed ..... but I geuss , like our dogs , we just dont know what it means to give up when it involves something so close to our heart.

    edit to add - was posting at same time Peter. I certainly am not trying to actively condem your experience of what you believed to be bad "Pitties"...rather , I would hope that an experienced dog person such as yourself within your chosen breed , could mayhaps understand that the dogs you are afraid of are in fact not true 'Pits'

    Am I afraid of them no, am I very aware of them? YES.

    They are a powerful dog that is often owned by people who who cannot manage them properly. By this I simply mean that they didn't make sure that they gave this type of dog a good sound upbringing by covering all the basics and then some. I also feel that there are many other breeds that need a dedicated and educated owner too and again I'm aware of them.

    I could put a Whippet into the majority of homes and it would turn out OK, I can't say I'd feel the same way about an APBT.

    And when I say I'm aware of them, when it's just me they don't worry me, but if for instance I was walking my dogs I am of course aware of any large breed, I think that's just natural, because if something goes wrong my dogs will come out of it worse off.

    I've met some very sweet APBT and some very fear aggressive ones, but I can say the say the same of just about any breed.
    If my dog was to take offense at a dog getting too much in he or she's personal space naturally I'd much prefer that other dog to be anything other than a large powerful breed. The fact remains in the dog world that size does matter.
