A friend of mine starting talking about how they busted Michael Vick for running a dog fighting thing, because he had so many pit bulls, there were kennels EVERYWHERE. Well, he made the comment if they banned the breed the fighting would stop. I said, no, no it wouldn't, and he laughed and said okay, and changed the subject. >:( I'm furiated, I will go drive 12 hours and beat him if I had more motivation. I keep bringing it up too..my god, I love this kid, he would make a wonderful boyfriend, but, its things like this that would not make it work. lol. He's, gah! lol, just thought I'd share it.
Well he wasn't really saying attacking, just pit fighting in general. I do not believe the garbage that less pit bull there will be less attacks. Are there only a few people that realize every other dog has the capability and DOES exactly what the pits are blamed for? I know its strange, but I've had 3 standard poodles, all at the same time, when I used to live at my old house, was my parent's. They were just as bad as a pit, it was amazing to watch them hunt though, the fact they got a wild rabbit baffled me. Anywho, they never attacked a human, but other dogs, and one time, a new dog was brought it, and they surrounded her, it was like a wolf thing. I was in awe. I didn't let it continue, but, I'm simply stating a fact, even poodles are capable of "pit attacks"
Back on topic, :P, at least the government is taking a step towards pit fighting and hopefully one day it will either be extremely rare or not existent at all. I hope that day comes, I don't know what will happen if I get "caught" owning bully breeds or if I have to live out in the wilderness to have them.
I'm a APBT owner and lover . I currently have 2 females now and have owned 5 in total. I'm very well aware of the damage this breed can cause in the wrong hands if they are not properly trained and cared for. In the right hands these dogs are lovers and extremely loyal and loving who want to do nothing but aim to please. My one female Piper , we call her scootches because all she wants to do is scootch between her mommy and daddy , she's happiest being in the center of us.She actually smiles.
This breed is way overbred and a lot of times bred for the wrong reasons. There's way too many Pitties and the wrong people want them for the wrong reasons.The poor dogs suffer at the hands of humans. It's a vicous cycle .
Yea, exactly. Still, I prefer hearing the owners of the dogs should be punished instead of do away with the breed. I had so much fun with our staffie, but I can't wait until I get a bull terrier and then a pit, those two are my favorite bully breeds, especially the bull terrier. :) I love those dogs.
