    Pleeeeeez dont hate me for this but for me its the APBT......
    I have owed many in my younger days however after witnessing the most horrific thing I have seen involving the death of my female Belgian Shepherd,
    I can"t even look at a Red Nose without having flashbacks.....literally.
    This was more than one dog attacking another, it was terrible. The vet of 30yrs said it was the worst thing he has witnessed & two of the vet nurses recieved counselling after dealing with my beautiful girl,
    what was left of her.....

    I'm sorry this happened to you and your dog, I respect your decision not to like this breed after such a bad experience.

    Off topic, of course, but were you all aware, writing of young men without, and staffies with, that in America, of course, a company has made a fortune making prosthetic testicles for owners desexing, that DON'T WANT THEIR DOG TO FEEL INFERIOR. ...PLUS, they choose, usually, the size LARGER... I think I know the nadir of human stupidity, and they get me, every time.

    Fenriz, so sad to read your story. It's such an horrifying image, you flinch at the thought of it.

    ruby mc, you made me cry. BIG, BIG hugs

    Fenriz, that is absolutely horrid, and totally understandable. And like Cav said, the owner should have to pay dearly!!!!

I reckon that is the saddest one around lol, and they have an obviously entire dog (if he is pissing every where lol) to make them look a bit more macho lol!!

    Oskar is an American staffy and he is beautiful natured. I suppose I am biased, but I love every staffy I come across (except stray dogs in general. I always am worried around strays)
    Just because a male (or female) dog marks doesn't mean it isn't desexed. Carter marks he has had the snip, my friends Koolie marks he is desexed and my bitch Keira (also desexed) marks. Lots of desexed dogs mark, it has naught to do with having balls.

    I dislike Dachshunds, have yet to meet one that doesn't have an aggression issue. Not a fan or JRT's. Labradors annoy me to no end. Any Small fluffy really. Oodles, although some are ok.

    Sorry ClareBear have to disagree with your assessment that Pitbull's who have been treated badly are more likely to have aggression issues then other dogs.
    51 dogs were rescued from the Vick property. 2 died in custody (suspect circumstances), 2 were PTS (1 was crazy from overbreeding, 1 had an untreatable injury) the other 47 were rescued, many were rehomed with families, including children and other dogs and many are now therapy dogs with their CGC, some of these dogs include champion fighters and bait dogs, none were ever treated as anything other than property, they were never socialised properly, they were mistreated and fought and they came out the other end better then most dogs of other breeds would have.
    The team who initially assessed these dogs were not even expecting to save 10% of the dogs.
    They are no more likely to be aggressive coming from a bad circumstance then any other breed of dog.

    Also never off leash in public? Really....
    Many Pitbulls compete in a variety of dog sports including agility, dock diving, flyball, disc dogs etc, all requie the dog to be off leash in public with other dogs and lots of people.
    What about the PBs that are therapy dogs.

    I am all for the fact that they need extra responsible owners, who are willing to put in lots of hard work socialising, training and bonding to their dog and who understand the possibility of a dog becoming DA or dog selective and needing someone who is willing to take on the responsibility of managing a dog IF it does become DA ie: knowing its limitations but I don't agree with this stigma that they are more likely to be more aggressive then other dogs if from a bad background or that they are not to be trusted off leash in public ever. If that is how Pb's lovers think then of course other people of the general public are going to be scared.

    I trust Phoenix off leash because I have spent 18 months building an unbreakable bond with her, working on excellent recall and off leash control and socialising her so that she isn't so overwhelmed or over aroused by the sight of other dogs that she forgets I am there.
    Just last night she was off leash at agility, multiple dogs off leash around her, lots of people, lots of noise, no dramas, she was with me the whole time barely even looked away. And in fact most of the Border Collies and working breeds at these classes are more aggressive then Phoenix (not heresay, the owners admit it outright).

    Thank you Ruby McNuggett. I appreciate the time and effort you have put into your reply to better inform me on Staffies. I can see you love your dog beyond words and I LOVE your motto. I have a boy with high functioning autism and he loves his cat in the same special way you love your dog. Mind you he loves his computer and World of Warcraft just that little bit more!

    Ruby is just as lucky to have you as you are to have her.

    Keep fighting that lonely road, one step at a time. Hopefully things will get better and easier for you.

    But this is why Ruby McNuggett is so special - she sees your magic.
