Took one of my APBTS for shots one day,A lady was
sitting down waiting with a Feisty Yorkshire terrier,Snarling,showing signs of aggression etc,
I politely asked the Lady,Could you please reel him in,I do not want any problems,by this time,My APBT is trying to get into my lap,97 pounds of muscle and bone..She refuse to control her dog,My
vet came to the desk,Told her if you can not control your dog,Please leave,He is a APBT specialist..He added if that dog gets tired of
your dogs actions,we are in for a long day..Thats
a Pit Bull,with that man,She jumped screaming,And
ran out of the Offices,she had no clue what other
breeds of dog where,But the Media had done its job with her..Pit Bulls are to be shunned,feared
ran away from..Yep its not easy,could tell you a
thousand stories about the same,I am sure the other genuine APBTS owners would support me on this just this one aspect alone???
My husband just took our dog to the vet, everyone freaked out. He decided to wait outside. Woman walks by and says "I hope you have control of him." My husband says "He sleeps with our cats. He is not vicious." She didn't believe him. Our dog has been around 4 of our cats since the day they were born. Their mom (a stray) never hissed or flipped out when he would check on the kittens.(All are fixed so no more kittens) He has never been aggressive toward any of them.

The worst story that did the most damage was that tragic story in San Francisco. BUT THEY WERE NOT PIT BULLS. They were brindle in markings. So is our dog. Brindle markings are instant red flags for people. Boxers and Great Danes have the markings also. Most people can't tell the different breeds apart. It is very frustrating.

Heck, we don't even care about the physical aspect. look how many dogs have to endure painful crippling hip displasia due to inbreeding because people just *have* to have a purebred.
Inbreeding is torture. At least Vick's dogs died quickly.
I know what you mean, seriously, it has seemed to cause a lot of problems. Jeesh we humans are really egotistical aren't we?

Hell yeah.
And a way to search for an old post from a week ago would be really nice too.
Honestly, as form formats go, Topix really sucks. Even IMDB beats Topix.
I agree. But you know, you can search, just go to google and type in your username here, topix then whatever you were discussing and it'll bring it up. It would be easier to have it all here, though.

It's a genetic defect, it exist to a small degree in many large dogs like retrievers and shepherds, but inbreeding increases the odds of a dog developing it.
Seriously though, I've always had chihuahuas, and it seems every one of them had some sort of trechea breathing problems from time to time. My vet told me it was the breed, they are prone to it...from inbreeding!!! How sad, really.
But if you think about it, if a certain breed of dog can have physical problems that are concentrated on them by their breed, why not temperment too? I know a lot people don't LIKE that idea, but comparing dogs to people is an emotional knee-jerk reaction. It's very possible that particular breeds COULD BE (don't attack me) having some emotional/mental tendencies that make it MORE prone to issues....

serious question:
How come dogs have been bred to look so very different, but cats are mostly the same?
Aren't cats from the larger cat family? Like lions and big cats of that nature? If so, I would disagree, they don't really look all alike if you look at it in the bigger aspect. I dunno, just a guess.

Here is a good example,The English hunting breeds
such as Beagles,foxhounds,pointers,wer e deemed too
small for the rugged American terrains they hunted
on..So now the American versions of these breeds
Are much larger,stronger,Breeders changed the size if you watch a big dog show,you will here the commentator,Say often,Now heres the American
whatever it is,to differentiate,from the smaller
Original English version..Same thing happened with the original English Staffie,which was a very small muscular dog,Now the American Staffie
towers over the Original dogs..You all know we have to have the biggest,and the best right???
Hope this little info helps?
Yes, this and your next post make sense. If not for our manipulation, there wouldn't be near as many "different" dogs.

Yes, I know what you mean about small dogs like chihuahuas. Smaller dogs have their own set of problems. Especially "teacup" breeds, boutique dogs that just sit and shiver all the time. It's tragic what people will do just so they can have a tiny little dog.

And then there's the pug. Bred to have breathing problems so bad, many of them have to literally gulp for air. And all beacuse it's just soooo cute to have a dog's nose pushed back into their face.

That is so cruel breeding dogs to have built in bad breathing problems..Pekinese,Pugs,Boston s,Boxers,Bulldogs,
Tons of the toy mixes.The owner usually spends half the dogs life treating,and trying to deal with the problem..They normally have very bad reactions to dust,pollen etc..so taking them out in rural areas in the summer can be a nightmare for them.Have always faulted the AKC for some of the breeding practices that take place.The standards that affect the dogs health etc?? All
working,utility dogs dog have different snouts for good reasons,The Blood Hounds,Coon Hounds,have long swinging ears,and wrinkles,that act as sensors,and keep the sent fresh on the dog
to help him..So do not be escaping from Angola,in
Louise Anna..They will be tracking you all down!

^^^ So what is the answer? Don't buy or adopt them? Just buy/adopt mutts (mixes)? I can't imagine the demand for pure breeds would go away...the pure breed of the dog has for some reason become a status symbol.

The answer is do research see if you can rescue one
two? Check out,if it fits into your lifestyle,Are
you energetic,intelligent,secure in the knowledge of high energy,lively muscular dogs,do
you have good excercise access,Do you have fenced
properties,will you train the dog to be a good
member of society etc..Is this your first ever dog,not recommended,What type of dogs are you used to? check out the UKC standards recommendations and tips.Then enjoy yourself,immensely!!!!

Breeders have been breeding human aggression from pits for over 100 years. Any dog that would show aggression towards a human would be put down, along with the entire line. Breeding dog aggression from pits is a separate issue entirely, it can't be done. When the popularity of these dogs rose and breeding fell into the hands of douchbags, we lost the handle on safely adjusting these dogs to society. You never know what kind of dog you get unless its a puppy. My neighbors got a pit at age 2 (guess on their part i am sure) and I will not allow my dogs to even meet it or socialize with it. Don't want to take the chance. It's fine around people but shows some aggression when rough housing even with humans.

You pit owners can't tell me that if your dog is loose with no leash in your front yard even with you present and somebody comes along your sidewalk with their dog on a leash that you aren't apprehensive at a minimum of what may happen next.

It's simple, pointers are bred to point, retrievers are bred to retrieve and pits are bred to kill other dogs. You can say this and that sweet poochie whatever. It doesn't take much at all for these pit's to go off on another dog. If you want to be responsible for one of these machines its on you. All I know is if the neighbors' other dog comes through my fence again they will end up with holes in them and next stop will be doggy heaven, and I love dogs.

You have some good points,Rescuing APBTs and taking home a APBT that may,or may not have issues,is a strong point for me,As I believe
that in these cases,1st time dog owners are
not recommended,but at the same time,I clash
unintentionally with the pressure to adopt the
APBTs cooped up in shelters,I have been an advocate over my years with them,That a Pup,
from a reputable,Breeder who is registered
with the UKC,and the ADBA,who has been breeding
successfully from a particular line..is a good
thing to do...This is a unique dog..there are some dogs,Such as the MVick scumbags,dogs that
were all adopted out 50-from 52,with no repercussions,and they were selected to be
dog aggressive..so there is pros,and cons,
all the way.My pet pissed off peeve is that
the Communities take the easy way out by killing
dogs,and not taking care of the real problems,that lead to APBTS dying in the first
place? such as the drugs,gangs,thug culture,and the worshipping of gangsta culture,Believe me MLK
would be ashamed!!!To witness what took place after Civil rights!!

It's not. Or it wasn't. It was a picture of Michael Vick holding a puppy. But enough people have mistaken me for black lately that I've decided to replace it.
You got any false analogies that concern cartoon Mexican wrestlers?
Of all my posts, this is your only response? Thank you, that speaks volumes.
