thats so weird..i was literally thinking about posting this thread today?! initially i was getting a boxer because they are an athletic breed with a good temperament and when i was going through the a-z of dog breeds to research the boxer, obviously one of the first up is american pitbull terrier and purely out of curiosity i clicked it and was shocked with the description of a loyal, stable dog afterall if the only thing you hear about the breed is negative this is pretty shocking i half expected to see "unpredictable" "tempermental" etc...long story short after about 6 months researching the breed i decided it was for me and went to see a litter,i knew people with staffies but not pitbulls didnt stumble into the breed i had to go looking for a good while....but glad i did Laughing

Very strong dog,fast,clever (if she needs Laughing ),but never that used against me,my family or people around me.I mean lot of people don't like her from fear,but she loves everybody.She's my first pitty and I'm very happy,she made my life match funny...

only 2 breeds are any improvement(physically) on the wolf I.M.O. The american pitbull and the greyhound.Compared with other breeds that suffer from a myriad of genetic problems they are both relatively healthy and able to lead a functional happy existance throughout their lives(in an ideal world).Greyhounds are selectively bred for stupidity(never get sick of chasing a very poor imitation of a hare) so that wins it for the pitbull.. I have only ever come accross 1 apbt with an untrustworthy temperment(and he was O.k most of the time).I think of all breeds ,they are very in tune with the emotional state of their owners--so with problem dogs ,the problem can often be at the other end of the lead.

I never knew anything about them untill The Dog Whisperer and Daddy came along, and since I first saw them about 8months ago I have barely looked at anything else. Admittedly I did think the blue bully breed was the pitbull for about 2 weeks Sad (please forgive me) But now I know what they are supposed to be like :D

Some men i'd see walking their Pit Bulls n Staffs, i was terrified of them first. They looked so big and dangerous looking. Until one came over wagging her tail, she escaped out of her garden. I knew then how warm these powerful dogs can be to a total stranger. About a year later someone had a litter, he had no interest about the dogs. I gave him the price of a packet of cigarettes for him. He was 4 weeks old, covered in fleas, after that i was addicted. I havent regreted it ever cheers

wow if we read most of these story's most of us have all rescued our dogs, this is just the perfect example of backyard breeders and using the bread as a cash flow, and not giving a hoot about the breed itself, fair play to you all for giving your dogs a kind loving home were their respected and loved.

a friend of mine from belfast bought a pit pup ..he was last one..he lived in limerick for a time..his son only 4 at the time ,well the dog from day one was in bad hands...the kid just tormented the pup..his girlfriend locked him in a small room and never put time into the dog..
eventually the dog turned on the kid,,did not break skin but gave him a real fright...i took the dog,had to pay him too....
i have kids myself so i knew i was takin a chance..had him casterated...
a month of proper care and he was better looking and a way safer dog..
i had him 6 years . he ashes sits beside me now in a little wooden box..i also have bitch that i took in from scumbags...
she is vey old now..
i only had one litter from her 4 years ago..i kept back a dog and recently i got american staff...i love the breed they are the most loyal and trusting dogs in the world...would not trust any other dogs with my kids..

wow and the crazy thing about it is that the breeder even though he caused that pup to be the way he was he was also ok to pass the problem to some1 else. its true that a little understanding and knowledge goes a long way, lucky little fella its just as well you took him god knows what would have happened to a child if he had falling into the wrong hands and even worse an uneducated owner.
well done mark.

Well said Lilly, and fairplay Mark. You gave to dogs a better chance in life. People wonder why dogs attack them??? If more joined this forum, we would be glad to help and educate them in anyway we can.

since i was 10 years old i wanted a pit because of the bad press they were getting and their bad rep. a fella i new had one and he was treated so bad. but the dog was still so loyal to him. i wanted to get one to prove to everyone they are a great dog and i wanted to help clear their name. i know i dont have a hope of clearing their name on my own but even if i changed one persons mind about them i'd be happy. but my parents wouldnt hear it. no, no, no is all i got. moved out at 18 and looking for a reputable breeder. couldnt find one. 2 years ago got a staffy (supposed to be staff x pit. doubt it very much now though). month later found lilly's number on net and asked her to get me a black one with white paws. "u dont ask for much" is what i got off her!! she wouldnt give me one!! bout 10 months later found snickers. my parents minds are changed about pits now! even my friends wouldnt trust him for a few months. well not all of them. but now everyone who meets them properly love them! delighted
