    Default I find this very annoying.

    Just about everyone that see's Brynn says to me "she looks identical to a pitbull, omg she looks mean... then they will back up." Last night we went to the pet store and as we were walking out a lady put her arm in front of the person she was walking into the store with and said "wait.. that dog.. she's a pitbull looks like she could attack us just wait for them to walk by so we can go in" So I turned told Brynn to sit and said "I am sorry, but how nice of you to be so stereotypical as to say my dog is going to 'attack you' 1 - if for some reason she were that way why would I bring her to a pet store with random people? 2 - she's an english bulldog, get your facts straight before you are so quick to judge 3 - have you compared an english bulldog and pitbull - I can most definitely tell a difference. And, she's actually quite a big baby... so thank you for assuming based on looks... I am sure she would have her own opinions of you as well. Have a nice day. " So we walked away. But, this isn't the only person I have heard something like this from... it just annoys me to see how judgmental people can be so they just assume she is mean. she will lick you to death and take over your lap before anything else.

    Just another reason the human race continues to disappoint me...... total ignorance.

    And, BTW, Pitty's are some of the most loving dogs EVER and will snuggle and love you to death before biting. It is the asshole owners that have caused them to be vicious.

    I could not agree with you more. I have a friend, whose Pit is actually in labor as we speak, but she has two pits... and ironically my 1 year old godson is able to crawl all over both of them and they just sit there. Don't mind at all. But, I had a pit attack my yellow lab awhile back... also come to find out that this pit's owners RARELY let this dog out and used it to guard their marijuana operation - before the cops took control of that - the dog ran from their house a ways down the road and my lab was in her own yard minding her business. In that sense - dipsh**t owners again ruined another dog.

    I've had the same issue w/my boxer Roxie. For some reason people think that she's a pitbull too, and I've had people leave the aisles at PetSmart or pull their kids away at the park. Roxie is the sweetest dog that I've ever owned, she wouldn't hurt a fly but people are ignorant. Pitbulls have gotten such a bad rap, and it really is sad. I think your Brynn is a beautiful baby, just ignore all the haters

    I really really really wish people would do their homework before they judge!!! Back in the 1800 Pit Bulls were known as "Nanny Dogs" reason? They were so good with children so much so they would "babysit" the children they were put in charge of. My husbands cousin's little girl had a pit bull she worked for weeks cleaning the puppies yard picking up poop watching the little ones and chasing them down once when they got out of their enclosure, she did odd jobs to make the money to get this puppy well she had worked so hard when the puppies were of age they gave her one and she still worked odd jobs to afford the food and toys and other things she wanted to buy for her puppy she hand raised this dog and anyone could love this dog she was beautiful and loveable and believe it or not someone stole her from this beautiful little girl that worked so very hard. This little girl is nine years old....It just burns my A$$ when people judge a dog and not the owner!!!

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    Kudos to you for speaking up. I tend to walk away and think kf rhe right words only after it's too late. Sorry you had to go through that but at least you made an effort to correct these people and stand up for your pup.

    People are ignorant to say the least. If you can't tell the differnce between a pitbull and an english bulldog I really feel sorry for whatever pet you are about to buy supplies for.

    Stupid people. You can thank the idiot owners that have fought pit bulls for giving them such a bad name. 99% of the pits I have ever know have been big hams. This reminds me of the time that a moron thought Harlea was a pug. /faceplam
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    That's what I think also - no one actually knows their breeds when they're saying something. I have a hard time biting my tongue with ignorant people, especially for animals that can't defend themselves. Exactly though, most of the pit bulls I have ever been around are the biggest babies... but I have never actually heard myself of an english bulldog attacking anyone. So, to say Brynnlee looks like she would attack... please she wouldn't even waste the energy - she'd rather eat LOL. Judgmental people... however, I can bet if I had a little Pomeranian or some fluffy small dog they would have said how cute she was. It bothers me how close minded people are... before they even know the dog or give the dog a chance..
