New family member

Post by CanuckBob on Mon Apr 08, 2013 7:13 am

We just got a new addition to the family. Her name is Rosetta Azul (Rosie) and she is a Blue nose PitBull. Our 4lb Chihuahua is still the boss though.

Pitbulls have always been misunderstood. It is usually due to a bad owner training their dog to be unruley and aggressive.

A gently raised pitbull pulled one of my kid's shitzu out of our yard and killed it for no reason. I hate the breed and would kill them on sight if I could.

Rottweilers, Shepards, Chows, Husky's, Labs etc. etc, etc. never do this sort of thing? So what if it had been a Shar Pei that did this?

My 'gently raised' Akita mauled my 80 year old mother one Christmas Eve for no reason. She survived but ended up having 5 surgeries and losing an ear.

Some breeds are more prone to "Sudden Rage Syndrome" than others.

Any breed of dog can flip the switch and no doubt Pitbulls can be one of them. They are however far more likely to be aggresive towards a strange animal than a human. I certainly wouldn't let mine run around off leash in a park with other dogs once it is full grown.

What if? There is no what if. It was a pit bull.

The question was hypothetical. What if a Shar Pei had killed that dog? Would you want to kill all Shar Pei's on site? I can certainly understand your predjudice given that horrible experience. I have predjudices against certain breeds too after some bad experiences. I don't like or trust German Shepards, Akita's or Husky's.

I might add that the "Dog Whisperer" speaks highly of the bull terriers and owns a few of them himself along with many smaller breeds. He has one pitbull that he uses to help socialize unruly trainees.

Here is an interesting article on Cesar Milan and his love of Pitbulls.

They are also one of the most popular breeds in North America (including Mexico) and probably one of the most abused breeds. I wonder how the stats stack up on a per capita? In the 70's everyone was afraid of Doberman's, in the 80's & into the 90's it was the Rottweiler's, now its the Pitbulls. Try reading some of the "pro" articles too.......

It is also a breed that has been outlawed in some countries, The problem is that this type of breed is that they need owners that know the breed and train them properly. Many dog owners only see the image of the dog and are totally irresponsible.
There are a lot of badly bred pit bulls because of the type of people they attract hence many problems. These dogs have to be taken out a lot and well socialized when they are small and many of the owners do not take the time.
We has Neapolitanos who also have a bad reputation as they are weary of people and can attack without warning, you have to be the victim of one of these attack to know what happen and believe me it is scary. Some dogs can go from sweet to trying to kill you in one second without a growl or any warning, by the time you see the look in their eyes it is too late.

At least you got a puppy so you can train her but watch out for the early signs of aggressiveness with other dogs or people and do not think they are cute.
This said I love pit bulls and some of them are the sweetest things I know but I would not have one at this stage of my life.

By the way Bob people should be wary of any large breed or strong breed who have the capability of killing you or a child.
We were mastiff owners for many years so we are not afraid of that type of dogs but after being attacked by one of my own I know first hand how dangerous they can be.

According to many cites, they aren't in the top 10 most popular breeds. German shepherds are listed as the number 2 most popular, however, and so far this year not one fatality attributed to the breed. Bulldogs and Rottweilers are also listed in the top 10.

Only people who have not seen or experienced one of these attacks would make light of it.
I gave a cute little dog to a boy I consider my grand son, the litle dog followed his master and a dog came out of nowhere and tore it up, the little dog barely survived. The attack dog belongs to a drunk and is still walking around the village by Telmex.
A boxer escaped from a large property on the lake and attacked our Xolo a few months ago and so on..these attacks are so fast that you are totally powerless and then the attack dog has to be put to sleep and that is another trauma if it is yours.

Our son's pit bull (raised with our 2 dachshunds) at two years of age attacked one of them as she walked across an area where he had been chewing on a treat the day before. The Pit bull rescue was called and they advised once they have killed and tasted blood, put them down as they will do it again. Also, they told us they are a breed that will go after small prey..small dogs..Our son was away, husband at work and just me home when this happened and I broke a broom handle trying to make him drop her. He went into the porch and was locked in until the guys got home. The next day, he was put down. Beautiful dog...but something can trigger them to attack per the rescue we called and in this case could have been the area where he had chewed the treat. The Doxie was just walking by my side and I will never forget the look in her eyes to help her...and I wasn't able to..I will never trust another pit bull..

The point was that not all humans kill and not all dogs of a particular breed kill. There is something wrong with their wiring.
I would be devastated if I was the owner of a dog that attacked. I have taken a stick to a German Shephard (actually two) who tried to eat my Yorkie for lunch. But, I have known other German Shepherds and Dobies who were the biggest pussies in the world.
Perhaps inbreeding causes the problem. Quien sabe?
Too broad a brush being used to paint any one breed for behaviour problems...same goes with humans.
