Yes there are plenty of other sites that also have improper info. However when I see them listing things such as Human aggression in regard to the APBT it is honestly infuriating and absolutely not true.
I sent a more detailed list to the Admin and honestly still haven't had a chance to fully go over it step by step...
After taking just a very quick glance at my breed here are several things I noticed that are wrong with the APBT info given that just popped out at me. I didn't have time to really dig into the whole thing and pick it apart better.
... For some reason instead of going directly to the standard they seemed to look elsewhere to find some of the info listed; thus, ending up with some inaccurate info.
To see a good and accurate list of everything about the APBT you can go to: ww.apbtconformation.com which also has links to the UKC and ADBA standards
In the description section some of the things that need changing are: "They are one of several breed that are classified as pit bulls" Actually I find this quite misleading. I think it should have been better explained. There is only one true American Pit Bull Terrier. Though over the years many other bully breeds and mixes have been confused and or misidentified as an APBT. They are also often put into a generalized category under the term of pit bull even though they are not APBTs.
Where it says the head "should have wrinkles"... that is false The standard even states the head should be free of wrinkles.
APBTs are reg with Both UKC and also ADBA.
As for their coat color the info given is also wrong. The standard states... Any coat color color, pattern, or combination is acceptable, except for merle.
Height and weight info is also wrong. As per the UKC standard again, The exact weight and height are not as important as the the correct proportion. The Desirable weight for a male is between 35-60lbs. Desirable weight for a female is between 30-50 pounds.
Though height is not listed in the standard. Most APBTs are between 17-19 inches give or take a inch or so, thus, the average dogs do not fall in this extreme range that was listed certainly not 14-24''
In the temperament section... wow the person who wrote that has no clue...
"It is not necessary or recommended that this breed be entered into an guard dog or watch dog training as much of this is naturally inbred in them"Really that is news to me... APBTs in general make terrible guard dogs because they are NOT people aggressive and are bred to be trusting and loving to humans.
Human aggression is certainly NOT nor has it ever been something purposely bred into APBTs by responsible breeders. That would be signs of a flawed or unstable temperament and is not stereotypical of the breed and is frowned upon by the APBT community.
Also: Prey drive and human aggression are not one in the same...
Sorry but that section along with other parts of the temperament comments really annoyed me.
As for grooming, I find the rubber curry brushes and or zoom grooms the best grooming tools for their coat.
There are also many other health problems that can run in the breed that are not listed.
I'm sure if I found those so quickly that there are probably other discrepancies about the breed listed as well. I just don't have time to go through it all...
Hope that helps to fix some of the misinformation given
