Pit Bull : The Most Dangerous Dog Breed ???
Some Books to help you raise or face a Pit Bull
"Pit Bulls" : This is a common term which is offered to these breeds in general-
American Pit Bull Terrier, American Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Brindle Bulldogs, Bull and Terrier, Bulldogs, Half and Halves, Old Family Dogs (Ireland), Pit Bull Terriers, Pit Dogs, Pit Terriers, Rebel Terrier, Staffordshire Fighting Dogs, Staffordshire Terriers, and Yankee Terriers.
Getting a APBT involves a lifetime of raised brows from all corners of society. The general notion about APBT has been formed on such rumored lies that no one really thinks well of this breed unless you are the proud owner yourself. In this article we shall discuss all good things about Pit’s. We will trace their history, their development, and their so called “dangerous” temperament. Also we will lay down some basic do’s and don’ts which will help you stay alive by not mocking a Pit Bull.
What comes with owning a Pit Bull-
- Law headaches- Bad PR, Breeding restrictions, hefty insurance premiums , and most important more possible lawsuits.
- State sometimes goes crazy and searched for ”ill tempered Pits”
- Extra labor you need to put in to train them owing to simply counteract the bad public image they have. “ Train him properly If you don’t want to land up behind the bar” – Type comments
- This one’s is genuine. Pits do not really like other animals in particular. So be careful if you have other animals like rabbits or Cats.
- Another Genuine one is they shed like Autumn every time. This same reason my first Pit’s called Autumn.
Truth for the matter of fact is that APBT’s are one of the most easy going dog breeds in the world. People who have lost a couple of fingers or toes to them wont really support this statement but the fact my friends is that a Bull wont charge you unless-
- · It feels threatened by your presence or acts.
- · It feels his owner’s safety threatened by your presence or acts.
- · (This one comes with a 100% dog bite guarantee) It feels safety of its puppies threatened by your presence or acts.
I will advise you not to test the patience of a Pit Bull and then make noise over the dangerous nature of the breed.
So why are Pit Bulls so aggressive?
I pray Whoever says so should step on the tail of a sleeping female APBT with her litter nearby. Pit Bulls are never aggressive toward humans. If we look into the breed’s history we will find that before the fights it was mandatory for the dogs owner to wash the coat of the opponent’s dog before the fight. Now its highly impossible that if Pits would be aggressive toward humans they would really tolerate a stranger washing their coat.
They are only aggressive towards other Breed or animals because they have been bred in such a manner. This behavior also can be corrected if pits are trained from puppy stage to adjust with other animals.
Biggest proof ?
How many people have you met who have been bit by a APBT? And How many people you have met who have been bit by infamous ankle biters “Chihuhuas” or other small breeds. Ratio will be like 1 to 10.
Truth About Lock Jaw ?
They say that if APBT it wont open its jaw again but will only tear out the flesh. This is pure nonsense.The truth is that the jaws of any pit breed are very week to do any of such tearing fancy stuff. Golden retriever has more powerful jaw muscles then Pit Bulls.
Why Punish the Breed?
They say punish the Deed not the Breed. if an animal is raised to fight then they will be aggressive but all of the Pit Bulls are fully capable of being family oriented if brought up that way. ANY dog can be vicious due to many factors. Inbreeding, breeding to fight, and abuse are just a few. A dog that was bred to wrestle has a probability to create fierce litter. The same dog may also produce very peaceful, very adoring brood. Inbreeding and maltreatment are more liable to produce a brutal dog of ANY breed.
So Why are Local Papers full of APBT incident's? why so bad image?
"Attacks" by small dogs usually aren't reported in the news because they don't make the same "great copy" as an "attack" by a large dog. They're not as thrilling. news on dog attacks also almost NEVER give the backdrop of the event or the full legend. Some are even disgustingly MIS-reported.
Bites by bigger dogs are disproportionately reported, because public who are bitten by larger dogs are more likely to seek health treatment. ANY dog of ANY breed can be irritated to bite. When probing dog bite figures, the breed of dog is not important; the state of affairs earlier and right away following the bite are much more significant. Any dog of any breed can be aggravated to bite. Truly risky dogs are a product of out of place socialization and/or training, not of breed.
This Hub is dedicated to all those APBT lovers who love the
breed for its greatness and who fight the glare of the
society to ensure that they can live with one of the most
easygoing canine friends.
