    As Choppa mentioned in a previous post..the AUSTRALIAN CATTLE DOG is also a dangerous dog and one I too wouldn't trust unless it were my own...I don't see the point of this arguement with "DogSavvy"...it all seems very arrogant/biassed and purely ignorant

    You put ANY dog into the hands of a bad owner...and they will surely turn out agressive with problems. It's got nothing to do with the breed

    This is my last post on the matter but until I can see proof that EVERY and I do mean EVERY PB owner becomes RESPONSIBLE about the breed they own as well as become RESPONSIBLE owners/handlers when they have their dogs out in public, I might have a different attitude to the breed than I do now. There are quite a few pitties in the area I live and NOT ONE owner I would call responsible. The dogs are either roaming or at the front of their properties unattended and RUSH out at anyone walking past with their dog , OR, the dogs are being walked with chains thick enough to pull a Mac Truck drapped around their dogs necks.
    Not that long ago a friend of mine was walking her GSD off lead in her local park and coming from the opposite direction was a guy with his PB off lead. My friend called her dog, put him on lead and yelled out to the guy would he mind doing the same until they both were well past each other. The guy reacted quite badly to this request and yelled back,"My dog could kill yours any day." Needless to say this upset my friend very much and she is now too fearful to return to that particular park.
    PB breeders need to DRUM responsibilty into EVERY owner they sell a pup to imo , responsibility to their breed and responsibility and RESPECT to other people and to the community in general.

    IMo each and every PB owner should be given the following to read every day, especially the last paragraph.

    The History of the American Pit Bull Terrier Summed Up by Jason Mann. (Pit BUll Owner/Breeder)

    History is the recording of the past or the telling of the past. As I mentioned above the history of the Pit Bull is filled with blood and battles against all kinds of animals including their own kind.
    We can not change the history of the breed. We can however change the history our children's children will be writing about in the future.
    History shows us where we, as people, made grave mistakes in judgment and where we made great improvements.
    I for one am grateful of my breeds history. It has helped shape them into the greatest dogs .
    With that said, our actions from this point on will dictate if they stay the greatest dogs known to man or if our actions will cause their total annihilation from our society.
    Best Regards,

    Jason Mann

    ANY dog can end up agressive in the wrong hands, as stated many times already.
    The reason dog breeds like the GSD, Rottwieler, Dobermon and Pit Bull get such a bad rep for it, is because when they are brought up badly, they do the most amount of damage if they did attack.
    How many badly behaved Chihuahuas do you see and hear of? Personally, a lot.
    But being so small, it isnt enough to cause as much damage as the above breeds, therefore, never makes the news.
    I could go on and on and on and on, but I wont.
    I would LOVE to know what breed you own DogSavvy.
    Puggerup, I dont believe anyone needs to be a professional trainer to own a particular breed of dog, you just need to be firm and able to read them.
    Height has nothing to do with it, if you can control a Pug, you can control a Great Dane.
    This is my favourite Pit link, and im sure ive posted it before, but everyone should have a read up.
    The Truth About Pitbulls

    P.S, The Pit Bull was bred to fight! They didn't just chose a naturally agressive breed, they bred them big, they bred them tough, they bred them to constantly want to please their master.

    Oh ok thanks Four!

    Well this is great!
    I cant believe you think so little of the PB when you own two of the breeds seen a lot of the time as dangerous!
    Hows the irony. I could get up all the news articles of attacks by Rottis and GSDs if you like?
    I dont think they're dangerous, its the exact same as the Pit, but according to the media, you own dangerous breeds.

    There could be a battle with this one... how many dog owners in general are responsible about their dog or it's breed??

    You may as well wait for the moon to turn to cheese - there will always be irresponsible people with any and all breeds of dog.

    This basically proves the point of the whole argument, that the expectations and presumptions about this breed are based upon the people that own it and their actions - and not upon the actual breed itself.

    I must be honest and say that I am not a fan of many breeds, and the PB is one. I must also confess that within me is a fear of these dogs, not a terrifying fear, but a fear nonetheless. I have never personally known a PB. I have met several PBs and Amstaffs however but only for a brief pat at a show.

    I do not expect that the majority would behave aggressively toward me, but I do believe they would behave agressively towards my dogs. This goes for many breeds though but for me, and I am being honest, it is more directed toward bull breeds.

    Is my perception based on the media? I would say it is. My first knowledge opf the PB was an american film footage of a PB very aggressively attacking an SPCA Officer. I had never really noticed the breed before this, which happened at least 15 years ago now or more. My perception is alo based on the fact that I have never had much to do with these types of dogs.

    I like to think I am intelligent and well read. I have, after all, supported the EDBA and others in their attempts to ban BSL. I do not agree with BSL and I never will. I tears me to shreds knowing that innocent dogs are being killed, whether it is because they are unwanted, or because they are PBs.

    I will never support BSL. I do firmly believe in the statement "blame the deed and not the breed".

    In answer to the question that this thread is based on, my immediate thought when I hear the word Pit Bulls is not a positive one.

    I know this may upset some but I hope you understand that I am simply being honest. I love the Pug because they are docile and non-aggressive and physically do not have the capacity to cause damage even if they tried.

    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Maybe "dogsavvy" worked at the rspca ??????....wonder what their reaction was when or if a APBT or other bull breed came into their work/vets. Makes you wonder how a vet nurse could be so biased against certain a breed????, ppl like them shouldn't be in any job that involves animals while having the "attitude" they do towards certain breeds.


    read this post of theirs..

    Diesals mum, sorry to read about poor Deisal. Some years ago when I was Vet nursing we had a Boxer come in to the surgery with Tetanus. Very very sick dog , it took weeks but he did come good.

    Hope your boy recovers soon and is back to his old self.
