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.

This is so true. When i was younger me and y mom basically raised pitbulls and they were like little kittens. Though they can get rough at times*thats with almost all dogs though* but this is just a case of people judging a dog by its collar.

I used to not like this breed very much and I didn't want to ever ever come near one or own one because I was scared or owning one if it was going to kill my chihuahua.
But one day my parents went to go adopt a dog at the dog shelter while I was out doing something one weekend and come home being told we were getting a pit bull and that she had already met my chihuahua and she never hurt him the whole time they met.
She's been a great dog so far,I love her so much,she made me see the good side of pit bulls :heart:

Yeah, pit bulls are great dogs with a bad name.. My mom had a friend who had an old pit from the shelter. My brother was little, and he had a chicken nugget. The old pit went up to him, and took it gently right out of his hand. My mom told me about it.
Even when I was little, I had a hard time believing there was a bad dog in the whole world. If a 3 year old could see it, why can't adults?

My grandparents' has a pit bull, and we have two pit bulls. One of them is the pup of my grandparents' dog, and the other was brought in this family because of her previous owners didn't took care of her. They were even gonna dump her out on the streets if no one wants her. Luckily, my dad got her before it can happen. So now she's having a really good time. :)
Also they are very protective for the family. My parents feels comfortable when it would be me and my little sisters at the house with our two pit bulls, in case something happen to us.
I hate it when they blame the pit bulls when something goes wrong. It's the owners' fault of how they treat them.

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.

·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

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;;

Wish my mom would feel this way. Were getting a dog and I saw a cute, friendly looking pit (under a year old), but she said absolutely not. According to her, pit bulls are savages and we shouldn't get one because they're all dangerous. =.= guess we'll just get a lab. She's got a thing against mutts too, no clue as to why.

I have a pitbull that was abused in his life.
We got him from these people we knew that kept him locked in a small bathroom
all day everyday.He got sick and lost his fur and was very skinny.

Each time we visited their home they always said he'd bite us
and that he was mean and vicious.We took him away from them before
things got worse.He would have died!

This dog from the day we brought him into our home
has never bitten or attacked us or anyone.
He's the kindest and sweetest dog ever.

He just wants to be loved!

I'm also against banning pit bulls.  My aunt owns two pits, one purebred, and the other a mix.  They're both lovable rascals, and they wouldn't hurt a soul.  Okay, well, her purebred might accidentally step on your foot, but that's about it.

YES! My dad tells this to me all the time. "There are no bad dogs, only bad owners." The only way a dog without having a bad owner is bad breeding for looks instead of temperment and the like. Also, don't forget, Pits aren't the only ones who face genocide. Lots of unknowing people think of Dobes, Danes, and a whole lot of other dogs as 'villains' and want them put down.

The thing that irritates me (that was pointed out in a Time magazine article) is that this isn't the first breed this has happened to. Before pit bulls were used excessively as fighting dogs, people were terrified of german shepherds because they were associated with the Nazis during WWII. And before german shepherds were demonized, it was bloodhounds, as they were used to track down runaway slaves. Who knows what breeds were unfairly hated before that, but it's awful!

In fact, the other day I was walking home and one of my neighbors owns a pit and he had her off her leash (in his own yard) and she came up to me and he had the instant reaction of "oh shit she's going to be scared of this dog, gotta call my dog back" and I didn't even process that it was a pit and that pits were a problem until he had come up to me and was apologizing and all sorts of ridiculous stuff. I was totally fine with the dog, she was an absolute sweetheart, and the guy was so stupidly grateful that I wasn't flipping out or backing away or just being intimidated by his dog. I say stupidly because nobody should have to worry about people being scared of their dog unless their dog is actually a problem dog yknow?

I respect this stamp.
I do know for a fact that American Pit bull terriers are being badly bred now; results are an aggressive dog.
But, if they have the proper breeding and a professional dog trainer or handler, they can be wonderful pets. 
If a Pit bull terrier, or ANY dog, attacks out of the blue(there is a Golden retriever that attacked a family of four,
sending them all in the hospital for example. Any dog can snap) then I should be destroyed, but if a banned
dog breed did no harm to anyone is should be allowed.

German shepherds don't bite the most people.. Dachshunds do, then Chihuahua, and then Jack Russel. 

German shepherds are on the list, but at number nine. Pit bull isn't on the list. Get your facts straight. But I like Pit bulls, don't get me wrong.

Pit bulls are come from the Bull Dog. The Bull Dog was known as the most vicious dog of it's time, not fit for society and was not a companion animal by any means. It was also one of the first breeds to experience BSL in the late 1890's.

The only pit bulls who were considered fit due to careful breeding are the Boston Terrier and Bull Terrier (yes they're pit bulls). [link] The only pit bull breeds still prized for their gameness and tenacity are the American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) and Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT), it's this appreciation for this "noble trait" that makes these two breeds so much more liable. This is why the Boston Terrier and Bull Terrier are less dangerous than the latter two breeds, they've not been bred for gameness in dozens of years while the other two pit bull breeds are.

If you believe that "it's all in how you raise them," then you honestly have no business owning a pit bull.

They believe the lies, the rumors. And i DON'T KNOW HOW TO CONVINCE THEM THEY'RE WRONG! i've tried EVERYTHING, even videos of cute ADULT pit bulls playing with toys. their reaction? horror. yes, horror. They actually wouldn't even LOOK at that adorable dog who just wanted to be loved.


Yes, there are some lies propagated by people who hate pit bulls. That is, "every pit bull is violent" that kind of thing. But there are many things that are truthful in what they speak. Pit Bull were never "nanny dogs" [link] and they were never known as "America's Dog" either. In fact, that term has only found use in the Boston Terrier which was a very popular breed since its inception well into the 1930's. [link]

Most pit bulls are debatably fine, but many (compared to other dogs) do become volatile and end up seriously maiming or killing people and other pets. This is due to a lot of variables that involve their genetics, not how they're handled. If improper raising and abuse is what makes a dog mutilate or kill, then more popular breeds that are in the retriever and toy classes should be out ranking the statistics that pit bulls (specifically the APBT and SBT) cause. [link]

In most cases, there's a range of only 5 or so breeds that end up killing someone each year. The most common are APBT (and their mixes), Rottweiler, Husky, Boxer, Labradors, and rarely a Wolf hybrid. Pit bulls compose more than 50-60% of all fatalities. Despite there being hundreds of breeds in the US, and over 72million dogs owned, pit bulls cause the most mutilation and death with a population of only 3-5million in their breeds.

To this day, EVERY SINGLE TIME i bring up me wanting a Pit Bull, they say "it will rip your face off!" or "they're way too dangerous!"


The APBT is a capable breed, you need to really know your history, breed lines,and understand the potential of this dog. They can and have ripped people's faces off and they are too dangerous or much of a liability for people who want a first time large breed dog. These dogs require a lot of work and I mean a lot. And even if you do it right, your dog could still end up biting you severely or killing the neighbor's pet.

Can you handle breaking up a pit bull fight? [link] Can you get your pit bull off of you when it decides to attack? [link]

This doesn't happen all the time, and it's rare by comparison of what can maim or kill you. But if you're just looking at canines, this breed does it the most and it does it well.

fun fact: GERMAN SHEPHERDS bite MORE people than ANY OTHER breed in the WORLD.


Links to official studies of this?

now if only people would freaking EDUCATE themselves, Pits may not be in this much danger.


You don't even know the history of the breed. You think it's "all in how they're raised" and you think that genetics has nothing to do with their potential behavior. You need to educate yourself, I'd suggest reading books by people who fight these dogs and reading these articles. [link]

When I was your age I acted that way sometimes too. Sorry I got off the cuff myself, I'm just tired of people throwing accusations without first asking someone what they think.

I like most bully breeds and pit type dogs, I just don't like the excuses "advocates" make that endanger the welfare of the dogs and the people they come in contact with. I have little to anything against the dogs, mostly the people. If you really want a condensed version of my beliefs in this issue, I'd suggest reading Terriermen's posts. He's a true pit bull advocate who doesn't sugar coat the grim reality these dogs suffer and the general harm they cause. Here's some good posts in general from him:

terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/…

terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/…

In his "search this blog" area type in "pit bull" and you will come up with all of his pit bull posts. I'd suggest reading them.

I can understand. I was your age once and even as you grow older, it's hard to not be passionate about certain things and when someone you feel is wrong, to be so passionate that you may cross the line. What you did was a minor offense, but it can easily lead to a heated argument that could have initially been a discussion of just stating different sides.

No harm no foul, live and learn. :peace:

We all make mistakes like I did in my initial response. I'm older so imo, I should've responded without the ad hominem. Just because you're the age your are doesn't mean you opinion's inherently worthless. Just watch the tone. ;)

German Shepard fact? i got it off a Pit Bull defense website about a month ago. did you know that in some states, if people don't give up their Pits, they are kicked out. and if they DO give them up, their beloved pets are killed. So just go find some FUCKING GOOD FACTS about the Pit Bull, and THEN maybe i'll listen.
