@Teeny💋☮ Awwww this is how our Pit was with other animals and had zero aggression. She was even attacked by another dog and didn't fight back. Damn I miss having these angels in our home. Thanks for sharing smiley

@💫ᗩIOᑎᑌE🌻 There is a reason they are angels....dog spelled backwards!
Our oldest Pit is the peace keeper, if we take her to the dog park she interjects if any dogs are fighting. She will stand between them to make them stop.

@Teeny💋☮ I've just watched this episode of "I Was Prey" (please don't be put-off by the title of this show, it's actually anything but sensationalistic and is about everyday heroes like the Pitbull...)

...this episode includes something that I hope will make you smile in the end.

They are a breed that needs to be well socialised.

That's not a negative, it just means they value "home" and need to have safe boundaries set and socialisation helps immensely.

Their "negative" rap comes from people who WANT them to be aggressive or neglect their socialisation.

I've had many so called "fighting" dogs. With me they were serene, yet territorial in some ways, but always looked to me as the alpha as in "is it ok?".

As long as I was cool, they were.

I love them.

Woof!

@RAVENOUSbird Yea it's funny you say that because my mums dog (blacky he was called)was the same, even though his family was domesticated and probably the bloodline was too, they still end up dropping into that pack routine, kinda fascinating that none pack animals would use it. :o

@RAVENOUSbird The only reason they do fight is to please their owners. Pits go out of their way to be good dogs. If you teach them and treat them when they fight then of coarse they will fight. I'm sure that is with many breeds not just Pits. They are truly the most unique breed of dog I've been around especially for their capacity of showing emotions. They really are misunderstood

My sister has a Pitbull hes a sandy coloured one he's called Bentley but when i shout him i call him Scooby Doo and the big oaf answers me, i call him that because he reminds me so much of Scooby Doo from the cartoons hes just a massive softy very loud but soft,she has had trouble with him in the past i don't mean he's nasty i meant that his breed was in question and the police took him for about 2 weeks, when i asked my sister about it they was doing "tests" we are still not sure what those are today but whatever they were he passed with flying colours so i can only guess they were something to do with testing his aggression but as we told them i i just said here he's literally just as play dough hence the reason i called Scooby Doo, she has kids now and still he remains placed as the day she got him, oh yea because of the rules in UK she has a licence to have him and he's microchipped... yea i love that daft dog. xD

@CelesteMoon💕 I can't believe they had to actually take him away for 2 weeks! I would have been flipping out. I am so glad she got him back though. Thanks for sharing your story

I've never owned one, but I have had a few friends that have and they are the softest creatures ever.
One of my friends Pit sat with her cat when she gave birth, helped to wash the newborns and then stood guard if Mum went off for food or a wander. I swear he thought he was the father, although it was more the case that he thought he was one of Tracy's kids. He was so funny too - if he was in a room and anyone farted he would hang his head in shame and leave the room, because his stank so much if he smelt someone else's he thought he had done it. Wouldn't eat dog food - had to have whatever his family were having for tea.
If he sat next to you on the sofa he would sit up like a human, usually with his head on your shoulder.
They lost him a few years ago to cancer, but he was about 10 at the time so a pretty good age for a dog - but even now it seems strange when I visit her and am not immediately greeted by 6 stone of dog trying to get on my lap.

@⭐️janerosity⭐️ That is too sweet of a story. I can totally see a Pit being that way. My terrier does the shame thing if you say shoo-wee and wave your hand around your nose. They are so funny. Our oldest Pit is 14 years and she is probably the healthiest of our dogs.
Thank you for sharing your story with us

That is your experience with pit bulls; but one of my friends who was a nice guy,and never trained dogs to attack, had a Xmas party one time.I noticed a small,young, pretty dog with a big red bow on,and my friend said,"That is my new young pitbull."A lot later, he told me he had to get rid of the pitbull because it had attacked his German sheppard, and hurt it badly.I knew he wasn't training the pitbull to attack, so it didn't make sense. smiley

There were so many CHILDREN in California being attacked badly by pittbulls,one town or county outlawed them completely.There were too many attacks on people who didn't train pittbulls to be fighting animals,nobody could figure out WHY THESE ANIMALS suddenly fly off the handle and attack people they are around all the time.One dog-breeder said that when pittbull puppies start to be mature adults in their 2nd year, then they can get aggressive just from their new hormones.

You also can't intrude on a male pittbull when he is ready to breed with a female, because in these cases the dog sees it as "you are attacking or something bad," and he thinks he's protecting the female from outsiders.---so he attacks you.These are not just "ordinary dogbites", which is why they can't be treated that way.I know of too many pittbulls who WERE NOT trained to attack,by any human,but they did it any way.--So these must be a certain amt. of pittbulls who are not stable breeds, and can go off at any time like a firecracker..

That doeesn't mean your pets have the problems, but pittbulls in general, keep ending up on police blotters as "suddenly attacked." I suspect there are just a lot of badly-bred ones around,and no one can tell what their behavior will be. Maybe some dog-breeders are just ruthless and breed pittbulls for the money.--and these badly-bred ones are the ones who go nuts,and attack.It sounds like yours are o,k. But a lot of other ones wind up tearing my friend's German Shepard into pieces,or tearing off some kid's face. Those are true stories and many of them were not trained to be killers.

Probably you must "socialize" a young pittbulls carefully,and many owners won't do that.--Lots of dog owners won't train their dogs.--and I read,you are supposed to take yourself and your puppy to a good dog-trainer,so you and the puppy are trained to be "socialized"and "so your dog won't chase cars,run out in traffic,chase cats,bite,go rampant and not obey it's owner. "

Isn't that true, most dogs and their owners have to get training together? So your puppy won't tear up all the newspapers?--and act like a Wild hound of the Baskervilles? Even humans need early training to become law-biding human beings.Babies & tots don't automatically just become good little polite kids.--Kids are very savage when they're just new.The parents always have to teach 'em... smiley

@clarachan1355 That's quite awful.

Again though, having rescued a lot of canines, many of what you just verbalized is neglecting the socialization and integration of these dogs. Owner dependant issues, by and large.

I wonder if your friend understood that introducing that breed of male dog into a home with an established pet is asking for the animals to sort out dominance issues themselves?

As far as unneutered males and females in heat, most breeds will be aggressive (males), in that situation. Wouldn't you be if you were in the middle of copulatiom, and someone stuck their hand in the middle?

People also do not supervise transitions in households between their new and established pets and/or their children or allow their dogs to run loose - - unneutered males are aggressive in any of these situations. Any breed.

I wonder if you are aware that some 95 percent of the attacks on humans come from dogs that have not been spayed or neutered, and 70 percent of the attacks were committed by unneutered males?

My experience is that by and large, people get this breed without doing their due diligence on them (and expect them to "naturally" be a lap dog) and without spending the necessary time for lengthy integration and supervised interaction, and then that is further compounded by leaving them unneutered.

It's terribly tragic and largely avoidable.

@RAVENOUSbird Thank you for that comment above, I couldn't have said it any better. People don't educate themselves enough before buying any pet, that is why our shelters are overrun...that and not spaying/neutering them.

@clarachan1355 Actually, any companionate animal should be researched before introduction into any household and that's the responsibility of the potential "owner". smiley

@clarachan1355 Anybody being attacked by a dog is awful! I do think a lot of attacks are by other breeds as well. Chows are know to turn on their owners. My Pits are 14 years and 6 years old and I have never seen a vicious bone in their bodies, quite the opposite. My 6 year old submits to my year old Carin Terrier. Now I haven't had experience with male pits personally so I cannot comment on them. There are also people out there that may not train their dogs to attack but may physically punish their dogs or keep them on chains both are known to make aggressive dogs. Dogs can also be aggressive on a leash if their owner is yanking and pulling them. I do agree all dogs should be socialized as puppies. My thing is, is that can't blame all attacks on just the breed itself....that isn't fair.

Dog Bite Statistics

Approximately 4.5 million dog bites occur each year
Dogs that bite the most:
Chihuahua
Bulldog
Pit Bull
German Shepherd
Australian Shepherd
Lhasa Apso
Jack Russell Terrier
Cocker Spaniel
Bull Terrier
Pekingese
Papillion
In 2016, there were an estimated 78 million dogs in the U.S.
81% of dog bites cause no injury at all or only minor injuries that do not require medial attention
Dog bites sustained by children have been decreasing in the past decade
30+ breeds of dogs and mixes are incorrectly identified as “pit bulls”* in dog bite incidents, attributing the pit bull with an unfair and overstated number of incidents (*pit bull is not technically a dog breed; breeds that are commonly referred to as pit bulls in the U.S. are American Staffordshire Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and American Bully)
You have a 1 in 112,400 chance of dying from a dog bite or strike
You are at more risk of dying from:
Cataclysmic storm: 1 in 66,335
Contact with hornets, wasps and bees: 1 in 63,225
Air and space transport incidents: 1 in 9,821
Firearm discharge: 1 in 6,905
Choking from inhalation and ingestion of food: 1 in 3,461
Heart disease and cancer: 1 in 7
Most dog bites involve dogs who are not spayed or neutered
Fatal Dog Attacks states that 25% of fatal attacks were inflicted by chained dogs of many different breeds
The insurance industry paid more than $530 million in dog bite related claims in 2014

@Teeny💋☮ Of course you are. There's no reason for you to receive aggressive and condescending comments. That's an attack, not an exchange of ideas.
