    Sorry Crazy but that site does not and never will warrant me giving it any air time whatsoever. And I hold all that they sprout in high doubt as to its authenticity and truth.

    Oh sorry, not saying I beleive all the rot they write about pitties but just pointing out that the bloodhound was once thought of in the same way but not anymore & really it just shows how it can be a fashion as to what is thought of as a dangous dog. Look at Bloodhounds today, I can not say I have heard of many attacks yet they have the blood of these so called killer bloodhounds flowing through their veins today yes? Really for me this article shots their veiw down & yet they can not see it.
    I do not think any breed is more dangous than another & it's far to simple to say it's in their blood & they will always want to fight. Nothing is ever that black or white for me. That said I think alot of large dog owners need to take more care & respondasibility of their dogs training & containment but it's diffently not just a pitty problem.

    Also a great read where I found these pics about them being the feared breed of old & treated much as the pitbull today.
    The TRUTH About Pit Bulls: Scapegoats: Part 1 - The Bloodhound
    What you have to realize when you go further into the lineages of todays Bloodhound, is that it comes of a total different lineage to the blood hounds shown in those pictures. The blood hound of those days, used for finding escaped slaves, were blooding dogs and allowed to hunt and kill them. they were allowed to bite. The terminology was used blood hound
    The blood hounds of today are scenthounds, like foxhounds and beagles. They are not at all related to the Cuban Bloodhound which was more of a mastiff type dog from Spain and actually closer in relationship to the Pittbull.

    Personally i will never blame any breed for anything. But I have always loved a true Bloodhound and I love Tracking, so I know the breed, known previously as a Sleuth Hound, a much nicer name, they should have kept it

    Its ok

    But the fool who writes that drivel can hardly be taken seriously.He is out only to tarnish the APBT and will go to any lengths to do so. He is an extremely hateful person ....
    *shudder* makes me so damned angry.

    But you are right in one way as to the changing breeds that are brought to the forefront of histories different ages. I would certainly not of thought of the bloodhound as 'dangerous' etc ....but then as we all know,any dog can be dangerous.

    I think alot of whats been written re; history is also open to the individuals interpretation . What my neighbour may class as a nanny dog for example and what I class one as is probably poles apart. However,if it is authentic historical record than it should not come under question. Should it ?

    For example ; what was the exact reason/reasons for the country to ban the GSD in the past ? I still dont think I've ever found this out. Does anyone know?

    Oh thanks newfie, I had actully thought the bloodhound of today had anceister within these Cuban Bloodhounds. So they are totally different breeds then is that right?
    I love reading about different old breeds but it can be hard to sort the thruth from fiction, lol.
    So what become of the Cuban Bloodhound then other than being an anceister to todays pittbulls, do you know?

    another on the ban, seems to be mostly about livestock killing fears from what I can gather.

    Exactly. "Improving" the breed standard. Some such breed is supposed to be this tall? Let's make them BIGGER because the standard puts an emphasis on taller dogs (example, of course).

    Yes and they were paranoid about them (GSD) crossing with Dingoes in the NT.
    Again personal knowledge, because my Dad brought three GDS's into Australia early seventies, when we came from the USA with his work. We had a lot of issues getting those dogs in. But because we had long time ownership of them and they had traveled all over the world with us, they were allowed to come in under special licenses. I was only young and don't know all the exact detail

    I can't help you with where the Cuban Bloodhound went...I only know lots about the Today's Bloodhound, because I have a great personal interest them and would love to own one. I really study my breeds before I consider going into them. the actual gene pool is a little too small for my liking here in Australia, so I am leaving it until I win Tatslotto and import some (as if)
