    My Dog At The Pet Store

    When I take Sophie to the pet store, she LOVES it. That is because she gets so much attention, and everyone wants to pet her. I don't know if there are a lot of people in my area that like pit bulls, or if it's just that she is so cute. The first time we took her, she had a...

    I Don't Understand It?

    I really don't understand how people could think pitbulls are aggressive, unless they haven't even met one before. I've met tons of pitbulls, and they are honestly very sweet and nicer than some dogs. We just adopted a pitbull off of someone else, and she loves everyone she meets...

    Yes, They Are.

    Pit bulls are very wrongfully judged. They are no more dangerous than any other type of dog. The only problem is the people they are "raised" by. When pit bulls are mistreated by their owners (i.e. put into dog fights, beaten, or verbally abused), they act out, just like any...

    I have two and they're

    both sweethearts, but you have to be careful with them as they will just jump on top of you and anything around you and try to lick your face. The youngest (but biggest) gets really anxious in public and will bark at people occasionally which scares people and then makes him...

    The Dogs Are Not Bad Its The Owners

    Punish the Deed Not the Breed

    It is unfair to ban an entire breed of dog just because some idiots thought it was a good idea to bait and fight them against each other. I am proud to say that I own a pit bull! There is no difference between pit bulls and yorkies the simple truth is that they are dogs...

    I Think the Owners Are to Blam Not the Dog

    a puppy is like a child you have to teach it right from wrong but the bad thing about a puppy is if you are mean to it or you dont feed it or you just neglect it it will probably end up in the sleeping chamber for biting some one now to get on to the point all those people out...

    Statistics

    I was going to research a bunch of statistics, but I'm sure most of you will get the point without the exact numbers. There are people who want Pit Bulls (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier, to name the most common) banned...

    My First Pit

    So my first Pit is a rescue dog. I took her from her previous owners when they said "I don't think I can breed her again, I doubt she will survive it, you can keep her." She is only 4 years old but has had 5 litters, the smallest being 7 puppies. When we got her she was around 30...

    It Usually Not..

    The dogs fault... It's usually the owners. That's what I say.... My poodles are annoying because we can't train them. Pit bulls are mean because they were allowed to be aggressive and usually mistreated because most of them are owned by drugs dealers ect... I'm not trying to...

    I Love Pit Bulls

    In college, I had to give a presentation on any topic. I chose to focus on dogs that have a bad reputation. I did a load of research, getting facts and figures, but I was nervous the day of the presentation. I hate speaking in public. When it was my turn, I stood up and the...

    Breeds, Trains, Plaintains

    They're dogs, bred to be tough and loyal. Thus, the owner has to know what they're doing with the dog. These dogs aren't for the inexperienced, or those who want one because "it's a pit bull, bro".

    How Can You Be So Cruel?

    Something bothers me. I have worked with dogs since I was young, no matter the breed the only thing evil and cruel is the people that make them what they are. Dogs are man made, they are made to be there for us. Pit bulls were originally bred to be nannies, HUMANS had the...

    The Unfortunate Myth

    I have owned and been around enough pit bulls to know that they are only aggressive when they are trained to be. My mother's pomeranian is more aggressive than most of the pit bulls I have known.

    Wrong People Not Wrong Dogs

    It is not the dogs that started fighting each other in the beggining, It was people who taught them to fight for money and entertainment. I think that if they are trained they can be cute and not fight like the animals they were trained to be. They are wrongfully judged by the...

    My Duty As A Pit Bull Owner

    Lowe's Home Improvement now allows dogs inside, as long as they're on a leash. So... after I wore him out at Heritage dog park, we went to Lowe's to buy a box fan. We're standing in line, waiting to check out and the guy in front of us does a double-take on Nibbler. He turns and...
