The American Pitbull Terrier is the most misunderstood breed of dog on this planet. I have owned one for the past twelve years, and she has never been anything but a great dog. You can’t ask for a more loyal and true friend, I love my dog.
If there is one thing that you have to know; it’s that a dog is only as bad as the people who own it. There is a reason why they call a dog; man’s best friend. All dogs will bite in the right situation, but this particular dog gets the worst reputation, when it doesn’t deserve it.
Dogs don’t just go around biting people because their a pitbull terrier, or any other kind of dog. The mean ones have been trained to be that way, and a lot of them have been re-trained never to bite a again.
At some point maybe the media should concentrate on the people that make ptibulls do what they do. Rather then to just take the easy way out, and blame it all on the dogs. A dog can’t train itself to be a fighting dog; dog fighting is a horrendous sport that needs to be done away with.
My dog is a loving caring dog, a dog who would gladly give her life to save mine. It disturbs me to see that people still insist on making dogs fight. I know it’s just the criminals that do this sort of thing, so why not expose them, instead of the dogs.
I’ll bet the drug dealer that fights the pitbulls does far more damage then these dogs do. Why not take some of the media time that you waste vilifying this great dog, and use it to vilify the people who do this to them.
People don’t like to take the blame for their shortcomings, and you can blame it all on the dogs. But at some point in time the truth will come out; it’s people that train these dogs, or any dog to do what they do.
If you must place the blame; you should look in to it a bit more. It’s possible that before you do another news report on how horrible any dog is; you should look at the people who own them. These people do all kinds of horrible things to the dogs to train them.
They will do whatever it takes to make the dog perform for them. They beat the dogs; they starve the dogs, and that is the best of what they get. If somebody done the same things to you that they do to these dogs; you might want to kill something to.
So before you go out an try to get the news to do another expose on how horrible the pitbull terrier is, maybe you should go learn about it for yourself. Pitbulls are some of the best looking dogs on the earth, and they make a great family pets; please don’t sell them short. You can check my site for more information about pitbull. It will also show you how to properly take good care of them and how to deal with their behavior. Knowing these things will help you become a responsible pet owner.
If you socialize them; they have no problem getting along with other dogs. Get them to the dog park often as a puppy; you can’t keep any dog by itself all of the time, and expect it to get a long with other animals; it doesn’t work that way.
Spend time with your dog. Don’t just throw it in the back yard, and expect it to be perfect without any human contact. Take the time to train your dog; a dog needs to know who the boss is. But most of all use love to train your dog; not meanness.
