I Support Pit Bulls stamp by zelos22 I Support Pit Bulls stamp by zelos22
pretty self explanatory stamp right here. kinda simple, but thats ok :)

im against the banning of pit bulls and putting them all because of their breed. it just isnt right. dogs are all the same on the inside. theyre all born as innocent puppies. its a shame a few irresponsible pit bull owners would force people to turn against all pit bulls.

there are no bad dogs. just bad owners.

use this stamp if you love dogs.

edit: a video with a few heroic pit bull stories: [link]

edit2: related stamp "anti-Michael Vick" [link]

edit3: a very nice site about pit bulls: [link] thanks to ~yamanaku for the link!

I own a Staffordshire terrier (APBTs are banned over here) and he is the loveliest dog I've ever met. He's eager to please, friendly, and good with other dogs.

However, as soon as he sees a rabbit, squirrel, bird or even goat, he goes insane. He has killed two of our pet rabbits despite a six-foot wooden fence and an electric fence and has maimed a goat almost to death. And when they're dead he plays with them; he almost ripped our rabbit in half and was flinging him up in the air.

That's not to say I don't love him. We're managing his environment so he never has chance to attack animals, and he's going to agility soon. Pits are definately wonderful dogs, but many (not all, but many) do have a huge prey drive and will attack small prey animals. They are also EXTREMELY strong and can be stubborn, and though they can't lock their jaws, they have a very powerful bite.

Pit bulls are NOT for everyone. Genetics do play a part in whether or not a dog is aggressive, though most genetic behaviour problems can be overcome with dedicated training.

I do really love pit bulls, and have never seen one that's aggressive towards humans or dogs (in fact I know a Labrador that bites people), but it's not all the owner (though often is) and genetics do play a part, as well as temperament.

Accually this makes 100% sense. Pit bulls were breed and they lived fighting. that trait was the built into their DNA. This is because OF THE OWNERS! I support the pits.

(Sorry to say this pit lovers)
I have always hated pit bulls. Reasons below
·My Chihuahua was killed by one (AND THE PIT IS TRAINED!)
·A 3 year old boy was killed by two pits
·I prefer little dogs or at least a dog that isn't as fierce as a pit bull
(HUSKIES FOR DA WIN!)

While I do believe that there are "bad dogs", I do not discriminate by breed.
Like, for instance, my Beagle, which is supposed to be one of the nicest breeds or dog, has been highly aggressive since puppyhood, and despite many different training methods throughout her life, did not change. Nobody had ever abused or neglected her in any way. That would be my definition of a "bad dog".
But one of my best friends has a pit bull, and it's one of the nicest dogs I've ever met. The other nicest dogs I've met were labs, so as I said, I do not discriminate whether a dog is "bad" or not by breed. I discriminate only by the individual dog's temperament, because no dog is the same. Pit Bulls should not be stereotyped.

my step-sisters are always taking in pit bulls, and there's nothing wrong with any of them. My little nieces play with them and they're totally gentle. Heck, one of my nieces gave a heavily pregnant one a titty twister and nothing happened. It's actually said that Pit Bulls were the original 'nanny' breed.

I got my chocolate lab-pitbull mix 7 years ago from under a shed as a puppy (which took my dad 2 hours to get him and his sister out from under it-- not to mention glass shards). He's sweeter than any other dog i've ever had *v* not to mention he's a scaredy-cat and wouldn't hurt a thing... except maybe a fly... 
Honestly, most people who come over to my house are horrified of him because you can see the pitbull in his jaws XD but he just kinda backs away when someone besides me and my parents goes to pet him ^^; it's still good for if a thief tried to break in... they would run out screaming at the size of him xD...
We didn't socialize him when he was a puppy so instead he's a very large lap dog/couch potato xD;;

I totally agree. I thought the exact same thing when me and my mom were in a video game store and saw a guy getting harassed by a police lady about his pit bull

BTW the pit bull was perfectly happy, friendly and good-natured looking
