I love pits!
Pit bull love 4 sure !!!!! ;)
I love put bulls. People think they are born bad, when really it just relies on how they are raised. Some of the nicest dogs I've met are pit bulls.
It's not that other people think they are evil, it is just the statistics. I love dogs, don't get me wrong, but facts are facts. D pitbulls bite more than others?
Depending upon the community in which you live and the ratio of pit bulls within it, yes and no. But whether a pit bull bites more or less than another dog breed is not the point. The issue is the acute damage a pit bull inflicts when it does choose to bite. The pit bull's "hold and shake" bite style causes severe bone and muscle damage, often inflicting permanent and disfiguring injury. Moreover, once a pit bull starts an attack, firearm intervention may be the only way to stop it.
Despite the "quagmire" of dog bite statistics, pit bulls are leading bite counts across U.S. cities and counties.
It may be true that their phisically capable of doing that kind of damage. However . If their raised in a loving and responsible environment . Those issues will not arise.unfortunatlly there are a lot of irresponsable pittbull owners. And that's the problem. My pittbull is the sweetest loving dog I have ever had and she loves everybody!
1)it IS that people think they are evil. There are people who want them all dead because of the misconceptions that the media and other people have given them. All that any pit owner wants is for their dog to be given a fair chance just like any other dog. 2) Some other facts are that you are far more likely to be attacked by a smaller dog than a pit. I know that they don't do 'real' damage but tell that to little kids who have scars on their faces from them. Another fact when pits were first coming around 400 years ago they were trained to fight various animals and dogs but they were bred to not have human aggression. That is how they came to be known as nanny dogs because they were bred so that humans could safely break up fights. When a pit attacks they do more damage but it is not as often as people would like to think. Even the website dedicated to wiping them out says that pits also get the blame for attacks committed by at least ten other breeds.
The issue is how often they bite because that is the basis for BSL and people wanting them dead. People need to educate themselves more about the actual breed. They have one of the highest scores on the temperament tests. They scored higher than golden's and labs. When a pit attacks in a neighborhood setting it is not because of some thing inside of them that makes them do it; it's because of irresponsible owners who did not properly train or socialize them which could cause any dog to turn on someone. Don't be so naive as to think any breed of dog is completely safe.
@Rebecca Woehler-Moss Have you ever owned a pit? Loved a pit? Known a pit? I've been around many in my life, and I've owned a few. Pits are what I like to call, "powerful sweethearts." A handful of pits have attacked, but the whole breed is getting the blame. My pit Chuy loves babies, napping in the sun, and when I rub him behind the ears. His favorite toy is a teddy bear he used to sleep with as a puppy, and will carry it room to room. He's more likely to lick you to death than to bite you. My point being; they are capable of hurting you, but they are also capable of loving you. Please give them a chance.
@Rebecca Woehler-Moss The pit you know is on newspapers, the pit we know is in our own backyard. I urge you to please search a dog named Sharky on youtube. He is the true embodiment of pits.
@ Deborah B- I doubt Rebecca Woehler has ever owned a pit, loved a pit or known a pit because she has no clue about pits! Love mine and love them all! such sweethearts that will love you unconditionally!
I'm really happy to see that most people love pitbulls and there are only a few ignorant people who choose to judge by"statistics".
i did a speech over pits, and while i was researching them, i found that most dog attacks recorded have been from other dogs. Also the pits do not actually have "lock jaw", they are just a breed with a tough jaw. During the 1700's to late 1800's they were used as companion dogs for the queens. They are also one of the very best nanny dogs, and blind dogs. My mother was very cautious about adopting our pitbull pup about two months ago, but she loves this dog more than anything now. If given the chance, they are the best dog you can have.
@michelle rich I thought of you when I saw this pic.
absolutely beautiful pic!!!!!
Aww so adorable!!! I love the way they stand so proudly. Reminds me of my own.
Discriminating against a dog based on breed is like discriminating against a person based on race. Both are supported by the ignorant and uneducated.
Pits smell......... Unless you put on deodorant! Haha
Omg I love this pic. And my pit bull ;)
Love these dogs!
If we judge all Pit Bulls over biting incidents some Pit Bulls did. We should judge al people of making war and hate. Does that sound logical?
@Courtney, I too used to do a lot for the breed.. Most are so misinformed. It is false that they lock their jaws. They are a terrier breed which means they were bred to go after vermin and were able to never back off and hold on to the vermin. You are also correct in stating this breed has far less bite incidents then other breeds. The have less jaw pressure then other breeds as well. I spent a lot of time proving that no animal is born with the instinct to kill including the wild as it is taught to them. Proven with wolves and other wild animals kept in captivity and were provided the kill to them. When released into the wild they could not survive. Much more that society does not know!!!!
I think you are completely wrong. Look up bites of people in the US. Bred to Kill. Now it is an instinct that cannot be bred out.
When people talk about how a pitbull bite does more damage than a small dog, what about all the other large breed dogs? Should we ban German Shepherds, Dobermans, Rottweilers, Chows, American Bulldogs, etc.? Why focus only on pitbulls? I am also pretty sure there has never been an attack by an altered (neutered or spayed) household pet pitbull. That tells you what type of people own the dogs that attack people -- fighting dogs are never altered and are usually used to breed more fighting dogs. In addition, dogs which are chained or tethered are more likely to be aggressive.
Love me some pits!
This is way too cute, I want to give that dog loved.
Funny thing... both of my babies are "fight-ring" rescues. Born and bred to tear things apart BUT they are proof that its all in how they are raised. Both of my boys (yes both males) are gentle giants and I would trust them around anyone and anything!
All I know is the only harm my pit is going to do to anyone is cause a rash from all the licking he loves to do. Love the breed and can't wait to get another one.
❤Love his smile 😊
Beautiful picture... ♥ (mother of 3 rescue pitties that would never hurt a fly)
