Honestly I'd be more afraid of what little Tessa would do if she had 5 mins alone with baby than Harley or lily.
    Lol Imagine how many people do actually get rid of them though as soon as baby is on the way

    i've just had my aunty and uncle over for dinner(they're over from tassie). They've met jack several times before and love him(they actually stayed with me when jack was a pup and jack chewed up my uncles sleep apnea machine = $$$). Just after my aunty greeted jack and commented how good he was with the kids, she said "i love dogs but those dogs bred to fight should be banned outright". I had a laugh and asked her "what do you think jack's breed was bred to do?". The look on her face was priceless as i continued on to explain that the SBT is basically the first cousin of the APBT ... one more converted, maybe ...

    Haha my Nanna absolutely adores Harley and Bella, yet my little sister has 3 gorgeous APBT's and she hates them. You can't explain to her that they are pretty much the same thing. Lol She refuses to believe me.

    Oh man, that totally cracked me up!

    My 7yo daughter went to look for a dog for her grandmother in the pound a while back and came home with some phrase like "pitbulls can kill a child in minutes". It wasn't the worst I'd heard but I immediately set her straight on the myth that there are dogs that will be dangerous regardless of how their owners treat them or train them.

    And today she explained to me in detail how she saw a dog owner licence system work. No mention of breed in her meticulous plan.

    She's the black dog in my pic The vet thinks that she's crossed with dalmatian and a lot of people on here think she's crossed with kelpie, her body is finer than a labrador but she's quite tall (about 62cm to the wither). Do you know what yours is crossed with?

    I can see why people think she is a KelpieX. Mine is a Lab X KelpieRottie. I think he qualifies as Bitsa, but a lot of people think he is a Lab and complement me for keeping him in such 'good shape' His sister from the same litter looks very much like Molly in the picture above, she isn't very tall though.

    My first rottie, took to laying outside my babies door. Cute we thought. Then proud grandma vs gaurding rottie scenario ensued. I must admit, in that moment, and that is the only moment ive actually been frightened of my rotties, I could see why people ask.
    Seriously, grandma's rights are something you need to teach at puppy pre school for large breeds, coz of the potential flash point when just coz you say grandma's ok to hold onto your rotties new baby, doesnt mean to say your rottie believes you. Ours soon accepted folk just picking his baby up. But would not relax till they all left, he'd given the baby a good bloody clean! and we can all take a nap.

    Jadie thats a bit poos!

    I think its not just a breed thing, it can be a size thing too. People cross the road or take a very wide berth around Barney. And you should see them jump if he kinda strains and sniffs a bit LMAO.

    Maybe you should move to NZ, the prejudice is much less. When we had our pitty/whippet mix, he looked just like a pit as a baby (well his head stayed that way, just a smaller version on a whippets body LMAO, can ya imagine, it was quite funny) and I couldnt take him ANYWHERE without being mauled by people who wanted to pat the gorgeous pitbull baby. I would get people yelling out "is your puppy a pitbull" and I would say "half yes" and they would rush over.

    However, that could be because he was a baby I guess, and it was 10 years ago. I dont ever recall Lennox having people fall over themselves to pat him and I had him at the same time as Moff LOL
