Thread: The Words Pit Bull

    Default

    Thankyou Anne for being honest whilst still being corteous and explaining why.

    Your's is almost a classic story/perception , which as you understood , was what I was trying measure here with this poll . The media has influenced you into a fear of the breed,even though its not for yourself its for your dogs ,its still a fear seeded and nurtured by the media in all its different forms .

    The media is our biggest enemy I feel , it reaches and influences so many. I think we need to turn the tables somewhat and get the other side of the coin out there using the same medium , maybe then we'll reach some and even if its only a few , those few will go on to help a few understand better and so on and so on .

    This is our hope anyway

    oh well isn't that interesting Floyd?!
    I would of thought a vet nurse would encompass all breeds put in front of her? And judged them accordingly?

    I do realise that each and everyone of us will have differing views and opinions when it comes to these things but I think there is a difference between being uneducated about the breed and having facts misconstrued ( and point blank don't wish to learn ) to those that genuinely have not met/understood the breed .There is a difference between 'bagging' the breed and having an influenced fear of fit . And DA is a trait we all are aware of .

    Like I said, many of you PB owners only have yourselves to blame in destroying your own breed.

    One last thing , I have REAL breeds of dogs , a Rottie and a Rottie X Shep

    Guess you Rottie owners also have yourselves to blame

    Boy's head crushed in Vic dog attack


    A child safety advocate has called for compulsory obedience and social training for dogs after a boy was mauled and critically injured by the family dog north of Melbourne.

    The five-year-old boy suffered severe head injuries after the Rottweiler grabbed his head between its jaws in the backyard of his home at Broadford, about 80km north of Melbourne, about 2.30pm (AEDT) on Sunday.

    The boy was taken to nearby Kilmore Hospital by car and transferred by ambulance to the Royal Children's Hospital, where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

    Kidsafe Victoria president Mark Stokes said the attack, which followed two other dog attacks on Victorian children in August, showed training must go hand in hand with dog licensing.

    "Dogs and young children, especially babies and toddlers, do not mix and dog attacks can leave children disfigured for life as well as being fatal," he said.

    Kidsafe proposes certified training for all dogs as a part of the licensing system.

    "No training, no licence, no dog," Dr Stokes said.

    Monash University research showed about 435 people were admitted to Victorian hospitals suffering dog bites each year, while more than 1,260 others sought treatment at hospital emergency departments.

    Children under five should not be left unattended with a dog, Dr Stokes warned.

    I love this statement !



    And yep Dogsavvy , you own real dogs.
    Dogs that can fit a five year olds head in its mouth and crush it.

    But as an owner you'd know that right ?






    Poor little tyke , I hope he pulls through

    "Your immediate thoughts /response to hearing the words Pit Bulls ."

    YOUR question Chuppa Chup and yet when people such as myself give you an answer you don't want to hear, you are like a PB with a bone - gnawing on it for all its worth.

    I hate reading about dog attacks no matter what the breed and I am very sorry for the child but unlike you , who is trying to milk this 'poor kiddie, bad Rottie' for all its worth, I always QUESTION what did the child do to the dog. Dogs , those not bred purposely to fight that is, don't attack FOR NO REASON. There is ALWAYS a reason and when children are involved ,one has to ask 'what did the child do to the dog' because children are cruel all too often to the animals within their household.
    This along with too many dogs being poorly raised/owned by screwed up people with little or no knowledge of dogs and pack structure is just a disaster waiting to happen.

    True Story..

    Family, consisting of father, mother and 7 year old child , had a young Rottie male. The dog started snarling at the child so the parents called in a trainer/behaviourist as they were worried the dog would eventually hurt the child. Trainer/behaviourist observed the child interacting with the dog while he was talking to the parents. His observations were the child was showing cruelty and bullying towards the dog, so he told the parents his thoughts on the matter but the parents refused to see the problem was their child and not the dog. The behaviourist even offered to take the dog to rehome it in to a safer environment but the parents told him,"oh no because we LOVE the dog."
    Long story short , a matter of weeks later the dog was taken to the Vet to be PTS for biting the kid. On examination , the Vet found a stick had been JAMMED down the ear canal of this poor dog, a stick jammed in by that shit of a seven year old. But no sympathy was given to the dog ,only for the bloody cruel kid because he had been bitten by a "savage Rottweiler."

    Jodz, I can understand your 'once bitten twice shy' as a friend of mine and her Springer Spaniel were badly bitten by a PB a couple of years ago. My friend is elderly and while walking her SP, this PB came rushing out of its property straight at her and latched on to her dog. Before my friend knew it she was on the ground and being dragged out onto the road. People from neighbouring houses heard the commotion and came to her aid beating off the PB. Her dog sustained several deep punture wounds and my friend also had bites on her lower legs but although she can't remember exactly what happened due to shock setting in at the time, she believes the bites on her own legs could have came from her own dog in his terror to get away from the attacking PB.
    Turned out the owner of the PB , a ******** in his twenties, left the dog with his mother and mother let the dog out for a run JUST as my friend was walking past. ******** owner ended up with a hefty Doctors bill , Vet Bill for the damage his dog caused plus unknown trouble he got from the Council.

    Oh for crying out loud...would you like some violins to go with that ?

    Yes I did ask the question and I thanked those who gave honest,free from 'hype' and 'wrong facts' replies.
    All you had to do was say I have had a bad expereince with APBT so am now not very accomodating of them.
    Instead , you let go with a good ole breed bash.

    Here again,we didnt breed bash the Rotty , we were merely pointing out to you that your breed is also quite powerful and can at times be unpredictable.
    I have not yet personaly met a Rotty I would trust and yet I had no worries coming forward and doing the Not The Rotts video for BSL after the last attack on a child.

    But you have to get that stick in at any availible oppertunity dont you.....
