    Thats true Minibull & I've noticed he's selling off alot of his Quarter horses too.
    I hope he says away he really is a doofus. When Black Hawke a Tibetan mastiff was imported they did a peice on this rare Tibeatn Mastiff but it was a nightmare. They put a 8wk old pup that was not Black Hawks in front of him just out of quarrintine & he grumped at the pup but it was on put in the storry & some bull about how agressive they where.

    Ha well if that wasn't bad enough here is a link and an excerpt from another one of Don Burkes "fact sheets".

    Burke's Backyard > Fact Sheets > Dangerous Dogs
    There are certain cases where in fact it is the breed that is dangerous and owners need to be made aware of the risk that these dogs pose to the general public. One such breed is the American Pit Bull Terrier which has been bred specifically for fighting.

    The NSW government's policy on dangerous dogs extends beyond the deed and looks at specific dog breeds and suitable owners. For example American Pit Bull Terriers, Japanese Fighting Dogs (Japanese Tosa), Argentinean Fighting Dogs and Brazilian Fighting Dogs have been labelled 'prescribed' breeds by the NSW government, because they are known to be dangerous.

    The NSW government's research also found certain breeds of dogs are more likely to bite people than others. These breeds are Australian Cattle Dog, German Shepherd, Bull Terrier types and Rottweiler. These results support the 'Burke's Backyard' story earlier this year where the five breeds of dogs it was recommended to avoid were: Australian Cattle Dog; Bull Terrier; Doberman; German Shepherd; and Rottweiler. Our statistics showed that these breeds were responsible for 75% of dog bites in Australia. Despite these figures it is important to note that even so-called aggressive breeds can make great pets provided they have the right training and temperament.


    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR that makes me SO ANGRY

    I will give them that they have mentioned that these so called "aggressive breeds" can make good pets with training etc but still he is supporting BSL for dogs that already come under BSL.

    Once somebody try's to be an authority on all breeds they have to wind up making fools of themselves, to really know a breed you need hands on experience of many individuals in that breed, if a dog is of a breed who can be protective you also need a sound education in judging temperaments to be able to choose your breeders.
    Bourke could not have had that, his knowledge would have been very limited indeed.

    I'll never forget about 15 years ago, D*** Bourke wanted to do a story on Afghan Hounds. The Affie club all got together and the day was spent filming about 30 Affies all interacting happily together. At one, and only one, time during the entire 10 hours, one dog grumped at another- a growl, small bark no more- and THAT was the bit they showed in their segment. I can't remember now exactly what was said, but to the effect that the 'dumb blondes' of the dog world weren't suitable to have with other pets.

    Unbelieveable... Unless you've had experience with this twat before.

    It's hard, because even though the dog worl know he is an idiot, the uninitiated actually listen to him. My family boycott everything to do with him... I think he's a dangerous breed all by himself- has small amount of knowledge (ie can recognize a canine at 2 paces), but thinks he's an expert. Bad combination!!!

    Real breeders breed for health, temperament, beauty. And in that order! These breeders put huge amounts of time, effort and money into their well thought out breeding, and rarely contribute to Australias huge shelter numbers.
    75% of shelter dogs are crossbreeds. Where do these crossbreeds come from? Puppy mills and backyard breeders.
    I have a regretful pet shop Jack Russell X Maltese, with terribly bowed legs. But whats funny, is he's one of the lucky ones! He 12 and going strong.
    You know whats not fair? Dogs spending the first 3 years of its life with hip dysplasia and a heart murmur, until they die from a seizure.
    I have lost a lot of respect for Don, and I can't believe you are encouraging such disguting acts of cruelty. Have you ever heard of the RSPCA's 'Oscars Law'?
    If not, then do some research."
    Just one thing, I thought Oscar's Law was started by an individual called Deborah Tranter and I don't think it has anything to do with RSPCA?

    I can't believe this idiot still has a website, surely most young people wouldn't even know who he is.

    Thats a very similar story to what happened with the TM's, he left out all the good stuff & made a huge deal of the pup being grumped at & thats all it was a grump.

    Unless DB likes the breed, it does not get a fair overview. His bias is so obvious, but the 'public' can't see it.

    I CANNOT fathom why he is so popular... Even the young kids I work with in schools know who he is.

    Natty's right, we need an upchuck emoticon!!!!
