No reprimanding necessary. You voiced your opinion with poise.I don't really wanna comment nor add to this anymore as this thread is slowly becoming about the offense and defense about the infamous Pittbulls. I already said my peice on this but as i continue to read other people's comments about the "F****g Pitbulls"
the more i can't help myself.
First one has to understand how Pittbulls come about so let me paste a little history about the viscious and most hatred Pitts: This is just an excerpt from ASPCA's The Truth About Pittbulls..
The Pit Bull’s History
The pit bull’s ancestors hail from England and were brought to North America by English immigrants. These descendants were bred from the bulldog, which some breed historians believe originally served as a “gripping dog” for hunters of large game. (The term “bulldog” does not refer to the American Kennel Club’s English Bulldog. This more recently developed breed serves as a loyal companion rather than a working dog.) Later, bulldogs were likely used as butcher’s dogs and helped control large livestock. Eventually, these dogs were bred to participate in an inhumane blood sport called “baiting.” Spectators found it highly entertaining to watch bulldogs pitted against bulls, bears and other large animals. During these violent events, one or more dogs were expected to attack another animal, biting it around the face and head. The dogs usually maintained their grip until the animal became exhausted from fighting and loss of blood. After animal baiting was banned in the early 1800s, people began pitting dogs against each other, and the cruel sport of dog fighting was born. As it grew in popularity, enthusiasts developed a lighter, more agile dog for the fighting ring. Some people bred their bulldogs with black and tan terriers, creating dogs who were only 25 to 30 pounds. Others may have simply selected smaller bulldogs for breeding purposes. These dogs were the forebears of the present-day pit bull.
I firmly believe that if a dog is viscious it is ALWAYS, and i cant emphasize the word enough, ALWAYS 100% the owner's fault. Now granted the Pitts are originally developed to fight other dogs, but what we have to realize is this trait ingrained in them is man made! with responsible breeding, responsible ownership those "F****g Pitbulls" can be and are amazing pets! they are very smart and are very strong. They need an owner/owners that can teach them and not break them. they are not for everyone, exactly like our beloved bullies. If one can't stimulate them mentally and physically then they have no business owning one but most people are just plain dumb.
I'm 5 foot 1. I would love to have a Pittbull just to show those people what they are really made of but i know i won't be able to give them the physical training that they need so i don't. I opt for a breed that i know i can handle, that i know i can train, that i have researched countless hours and yearned for years. Imagine those snippy growling Chihuahuas as big as our bullies...they get away with anything simply because they are small. Dogs' behaviors are extensions of the owners' well being. Killer and viscious dogs are man made plain and simple.
To @IPickedADaisy, I'm sorry if i hijacked your thread and is out of topic...i just felt the need to speak up. And to the mods i accept if i am going to be reprimanded .
