    i'm on my second pit bull puppy. the first was a breeze to raise. my current puppy...absolute nightmare the first 2.5 weeks, as she seemed pretty viscious. we are 2 months in, and she has mellowed tremendously. my hope is that the worst is behind us. can't wait for those baby teeth to be gone!

    Thanks to you Cesar now i know how to understand and take care of my dog. I have a 1 year famale Blue nose Pitbull and she is very affectionate and very energetic too, sometimes i lost my patience hahah. It's really how the owner cares to raise and discipline the dog. And Daddy, i always remember him from way back. Greetings from Puerto Rico!

    i was chased out of my own backyard by a very large one. im sure they are lovely family pets but you cannot take a chance with a pitbull. i was lucky to jump over a neaby fence. never going to be comfortable around those dogs sadly, seen many attacks and what they can do/will do.

    Animal aggression is an accepted trait by all Kennel clubs that recognize the American Pit Bull Terrier. It is most certainly the breed and NOT the deed. As stated the sole bred purpose for the breed was to fight other animals. Genetics cannot be changed, yes each individual dog may not be animal aggressive, but if you should have one that is, be proud that it has that very rare trait swimming in its genetic make up, but more importantly be a responsible owner that understands what this breed is about, understand its limitations around other animals and provide this working class of dog with a job! For those that want clarity or more information on the glorious history of this breed, check out books from Richard Stratton.

    These dogs were bred to fight. It’s in their DNA. Just like a Border Collie was bred to herd, Doberman to protect. Even when the owner doesn’t teach them they just seem to do it.

    Statistics don’t lie. In The U.S. From 2005-2015 Your precious Pit Bulls have mauled to death 232 people. Rottweiler 42 people German Shepherd 13 people. Mastiff 12. I’d like to see you pit bull lovers justify these numbers.

    If a pitbull (please note: not every dog with a square head is a pitbull, there is only one pitbull and that is the APBT) wants to fight other dogs, it's not a human's fault and you cannot train it to like other dogs. It's genetics; fighting dogs and not giving up is what they were bred to do. Will socialisation and training help? Yes, it is ALWAYS a good thing to socialize and train your dog and teach it to not growl and bark at dogs you come across on the streets. But you cannot teach a pitbull/closely related dog to be the best around other dogs and it is ALWAYS a good idea to separate your pitbull(type) dogs when you leave them alone. Stop being a furmom, accept the genetics, go challenge that dog in sports, use those genetics to make the dog truly shine in for example bikejoring, running, weightpull etc. They are excellent sportsdogs and great companions. But they were NOT nannydogs and genetics play an important role. That's why a hunter rather uses a Labrador or a Pointer instead of a pug or a Border collie. Don't deny genetics and be a responsible owner.

    Always traced back to a human? I disagree. Our pitbull was perfectly fine for months with our Dane until one day ...bam. Please explain? I see a version of my story all the time. And it’s so commonly a pitbull. We have three breeds: Dane, pit, Pomeranian and two cats. Pitbull is the only dog that has ever presented a problem

    My best Dog EVER was a “mistake”. Her owner had papered Boston Terrier, neighbor had a papered English Bull Terrier. The BT had a “mistake” puppy. That mistake was my girl and she was beautiful. Yuppies bought her from the owner, left her in a small laundry room for 12 hours a day. She dug her way out. They returned her. I rescued her. She rescued me.✌🏾

    The pitt bul terrier is the OG nanny dog. It is only after mankind discovered the doggs would do ANYTHING to please their Alpha they were used for blood sports. I am a cat person, but if I were to ever to welcome a dog to my home, it would either be a pit bull or a staffy (either one would do).

    Statistically pit bulls are responsible, by far, for killing the most dogs, cats, and people. Mauling and fighting is in their DNA. No different than a retrievers instinct is to retrieve.

  • 9xxxxxxxxx

    Pit bulls were brought to the Americas with the Conquistadors to kill maim and eat indigenous people. This history is bullshit.

    Pitbulls love to fight. You have to train them not to. They’re sweethearts but sweethearts that love to fight. They are a fighting breed, it’s what they’re wired and love to do.

      Do you believe it's possible for a Pitbull to turn on it's master? You stated that they love to fight, so could a person who owns one be keeping a ticking bomb? If a person with a Pitbull never trained the dog not to fight, could the dog turn on him?

    I used to. be afraid of pitbulls because I got chased by the known fighting ones in Saintjohns Oregon back on the days. After meeting well mannered and trained pitbulls I came to love that breed both of my brothers have a deep love for that breed now I do too. I tell everyone I talk to at my work Fred Meyers Busy grocery store that I learned it's not the dogs fault it's the owners fault.

    I have a sweet German Shepard/Pitbull. We call him the babysitter. He loves children. I don't know why. But. the rowdier the better. He will play, wrestle, run, follow them around. And sleep with them. He keeps an eye on them. Not sure if it because he was raised by older women. My mom is 70 and she helped raise him. And spends a lot of time with him.

    I have schnauzers but I always thought the terrier in pit bulls made them act so similar! THEY ARE LOVERS AND PROTECTORS! Some naturally defend but have hearts of gold. My schnauzer will sounds like he will rip your soul out if you have bad intentions but he would never bite anyone! He’s been attacked by dogs and he still never fights back. He will stand his ground and growl but never bite!!

  • Rafael Mejía Valencia

    Real Pitbull nature is fighting with any animal, they do not have fear to die. they are very loyal and will protect their human. Their temperament is the strongest of all the dogs even though Pitbull does not attack humans. People have cross pitbull genetics with other dogs creating a great variety of Bulldog types, which are wrongly named "Pitbull" and that had lead to unequilibrated dogs that attack humans. You do not work with Pitbulls, you work with Bulldog types, that is a big difference. Pitbull dogs are not even for sale to ordinary people, there are people encharged to preserve this great dog breed and I think the best one. and if you have one you are very lucky.

    There are hundreds of them in shelters since people lose interest when pitts mature and can be hard to handle. If you have a pitt and understand them adopt a "hard" to adopt one from a shelter.

    If a well socialized, friendly pit bull gets into a fight for a toy or for intense playfighting at a dog park, there's a bigger chance it will hurt another dog badly. They're catch dogs. It's in them. Don't sugarcoat it. A poodle, a boxer or a collie won't send another dog to the hospital if they have a "disagreement" (which is normal, dogs get in each other's faces and act like jerks sometimes in order to assert dominance, for example). That's why pit bulls need experienced owners with a very good understanding of what these dogs are. They're excellent dogs if in the right hands. They're eager to learn and very intelligent, durable and healthy, beautiful and loyal.

    Well said at the end it’s like dog racism . I have a soft spot for pits Bc they remind me of myself . If they “look” menacing or mean it’s ok that’s just how they were born it’s how they look but they have the most tender souls . Once I was 18 my mom told me she was scared of me Bc if how I looked 😂 Bc I would buzz cut my head have tattoos etc etc she said I looked like a “cholo” . But I couldn’t change how I looked physically my resting bitch face, height .i was just born like that , that’s me .after that I always remembered how she always called pits bad dogs . And I thought wtf pits are just born like that ,that’s them . I live in the south and it’s very taboo here to see chili culture but us being from Cali . Best believe me and my dog walk as confidently as every other “proper dog” at the dog park . We’re just like every other dog and owner in that park , we’re just bred different ya fee me lol

    Why is he showing a Blue dog as a PITBULL. I like Caesar alote but he's wrong on showing a blue dog as a 'PITBULL' that just keeps people misguided on what is and what isn't a True PITBULL.

    Actually, the Victorian baiting Bulldog **IS** the current Pit Bulldog or "American Pit Bull Terrier". The English Bull Terrier is the cross between the Bulldog and various Terriers. Look at the drawings and paintings of bull-baiting, lion baiting, bear-baiting and dog-fighting. They look the same as our gamebred (dog fighting strain) Pit Bulldogs. And gamebred dogs WILL fight. Most people have American Bullies or Staffordshire Terriers. So they are clueless about the original article or fighting strains of the dog (which... IS what the proper Bulldog is). I wish less people were interested in them.

  • deplo

    yes Cesar, I agree. However, every breed has different power and the consequences of not properly educating them are far different from a basset hound to a pitbull, and I think you should always stress that. So, if a poorly educated basset hound bites somebody or another dog the consequences will be nowhere as serious as if a pitbull is involved. That is why your discourse is fine but it doesn't take into account the fact that owners should be made way more responsible on this. Great power = great responsibilities. Cheers

    I am sorry but the pit bull was not bred to be a fighting dog. the pit bull was bred to kill rats. unfortunately for the pit bull wooden boats were becoming obsolete as ships were beginning to be built with steel; therefore the necessity of a ratting dog was not as important. rats were in abundance in London, and that is how the dog became to be known as the pit bull. Gamblers would place the dog in a pit and build wages by placing bets on how many rats the dog could kill in a minute. They would increase or decrease the time through the wagering process. the greatest known champion known at the turn of the century was a pit bull named Charlie who was recorded to kill 73 rats in one minute. In early 20th century America is where the Pit Bull became a dog fighter
