    Default confused... about pit bulls

    so i was looking at this link (these laws are just rediculously stupid! )

    Cookies must be enabled | Herald Sun

    anyway... so on the map thing at the bottom that lists dog attacks, on some of the areas... Pit bull terriers and American pit bulls are listed as different breeds....
    i thought they were the same....

    (i know Bull terriers and pit bulls are different... but this definately says Pit bull terriers and American pit bulls.... i'm confused... lol)

    Pit Bull Terrier is a blanket term used to describe any muscular looking dog that people think possibly resembles a APBT. It could be made up of any mix of dog... some not even Bull breeds at all and than an APBT is an APBT :P

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Don't worry about it, I am a tad confused as well. I also have heard that there is not an actual pit bull, and that all bull breeds come under the pit bull status. Oskar is an AMstaff x, and not a pit bull.....i don't know, I can't get my head around it either.

    A "pit bull" refers to any of a number of breeds of dogs used in "pit" at some time or another.

    Pit bulls, staffs whatevs. They all technically come under the "pit bull" umbrella.

    AmPit is the actual specific breed with standards etc

    I think all dogs with the term bull in it is under that law, WHICH I THINK IS RIDICULOUS. I hate this law. It makes me so angry. And i often have little arguments with my boyfriend because he believes all this crap. It is the owners fault if they haven't socialized and trained there dog properly. Not the dogs!
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    Wow... who ever came up with these laws is just plain stupid!
    its suposed to be a ban on pit bulls... not a ban on anything that looks even the slightest bit like it has a bull breed in it O.o
    but even then... banning pit bulls is not the solution the the problem at all!!!... as many people have said before... ITS THE OWNERS NOT THE DOGS!
    i absolutely HATE these stupid laws!!!
