Pitbull Haters

  1. This is totally off this site I just wanted to share this link with animal lovers, read on...

    I grew up with neighbors who had about 7 pitbulls, one had 18 pups once. Anyways, I hated them with a passion because I never felt safe. When one of their dogs breaks its chain to attack another neighbor's dog, more pitbulls would break their chain and had like four pitbulls at once attacking another dog. It was so sad to live in a place like that. Once I'd hear a dog screaming, I mean literally screaming, I new it was a pitbull loose. I had 3 dogs....2 mix and 1 who was half shepard and mix. She was like a white shepard named snowball. She hated the pitbulls and was always willing to put up a fight whenever the pitbulls got loose. She would only attack the pitbull when they came onto our property. Since I knew the attitude and minds of the pitbull (my neighbor's dogs) I never did like 'em. This site got my attention because when you're reading it, you can almost feel the love.......click on the link below;

    I don't trust pitbulls because of their breeding and because I was bit by one. I have a Border Collie/Australian Shepard and a Chocolate Lab.

    I don't completely trust any dog breed. Given the right circumstances (self defense, protecting food/puppies) any dog can turn. We have a black lab (5 years old) who is wonderful with our children, but I still respect the fact that she is an animal and will defend herself when they get too rough with her or when she's eating...

    Here's a quote off that link...


    "If there are no dogs in Heaven,
    then when I die I want to go where they went."

    These are my pitbulls......Herbie and Priscilla

    I have lots of pics and a lot of pit bull stories. Right now my son is home from the military and don't have a lot of time. I'm just dropping in now and then.

    I'm not trying to put you down but I will say that people who don't trust pitbulls because of their breeding really don't know the breed or the breeding. Prissy is a therepy dog and Herbie is a grand champion. When I come back I'll post pics of Prissy and her "children"... btw she came from a fighting ring.

    Some breeds, though, were bred to be aggressive. Pitbulls have a bad track record, even though there are some fine pitbulls that are harmless. Statistically they are one of the more dangerous breeds and are even banned in some places.

    Dear Dazzle,
    I'm sure your dogs are fine and well brought up, but there are many pitbulls, rotweillers, German Shephards, dobermans, etc, that perhaps have not been so carefully managed, and are more prone than other types of dogs to be aggressive, since they were originally bred for that and these traits are hereditary.

    Here's and interesting statistic I found:

    From 1979 through 1998, at least 25 breeds of dogs have been involved in 238 human dog bite related deaths. Pit Bulls and Rottweilers were involved in more than 50 percent of these deaths.

    This is just a subject (pit bulls) that is pretty near and dear to me. My husband and I have been envolved with the breed for many years...we've seen some awful things humans can do to these dogs and still not make them mean. I could tell you stories that would make you cry.

    Real quick. They are not more prone to aggression and in fact they make terrible watch dogs.

    18 mos ago I had to put a Lab down because he just about took my hand off

    I know you don't mean to but it really hurts to hear how bad these dogs are. Laws are being passed all over the country to make these dogs illegal and people are losing their pets. Pets that are loved like you love your dogs. How would you feel if one day someone came knocking on your dog to take your dogs?

    I used to have that article. Its put out by the CDC correct? Anyhow if you read the whole article it will say that the statistics cannot be verified due to the fact the breeds were not identifiable... ie Boxers Labs Great Danes ... on and on...are often mistaken for pit bulls. In Chicago a couple years ago a woman jogger was killed by a "Pit Bull".... long story short it wasn't a pit bull it was a Lab. Of course a Lab killing doesn't m ake a good story.

    It'll be a few days but there is on the internet somewhere "Find the Pit Bull"... pictures of about 20 breeds and see if you can find the pit bull. Most people have no clue what a true pit bull looks like.

    Any dog, poorly-bred and brought-up is a potential menace to society. That would include any animal from a much-loved golden retriever to a chihuahua. If an animal is shown cruelty, negligence, deprivation and bred poorly, who can blame it if it turns out vicious? Sad thing is, we don't always know which animals may be prone to attack, and therefore, I am wary around any dog I don't know until I can see how it behaves first. Pitbulls may be involved in many attacks, but I believe that is due to breeding and upbringing.

    Meant to add:

    I do not hate any breed, but I do despise ignorant and abusive dog OWNERS. Behind every vicious dog is a neglectful, abusive or ignorant human being who owns it. That is what I believe with all my heart.
