    Well technically a Corso falls under the Mastiff category. However due to the way they look it will cause the same stir to however made the no pit rules.

    Yeah I thought it was because of his housing restrictions but I wasnt sure. You are right, most people wouldnt be able to tell the difference between a Corso and a Pit, even though they arent related at all. As a matter of fact, most people wouldnt be able to tell the difference between a dogo,corso,pit,presa, or american bulldog. They would all most likely be labeled as pits by the general population. Bunch of dog ignorant idiots.

  3. Are you going to get another pit when you move to SA?

    My mom's friend had a pit that adopted a litter of abandoned kittens. She even nursed them, too. Every pit that I have ever interacted with is a such a big baby and I hate the rep that they get.

    Amen to that. As for getting one, Im not sure. There is such an undeserved sense of fear and hatred towards them by the general public that its unsettling. I was always afraid that if Sage got out some cowboy would try to be a hero. But if I ever have some land in a rural area, then hell yes I will get another one. There is no finer breed than the APBT, imo.

    I miss her so much, but not nearly as much as Duke does.





    I love this one because it was the day after she had a seizure and he lied next to her like that all day.

    Thanks. The one in the red collar is still around; he's a boxer/bloodhound mix. They are both shelter dogs and remain my pride and joy.

  11. Mastiffs aren't banned from the housing... seems only the 'popular' misplaced fear breeds are banned. Now i'm just shopping around for a good breeder.

    Good luck with that, dogs are far more loyal then people. Enjoy your baby to be.

    That's ****ing awesome. I love animals so much.

  14. Ya its crazy how animals have a sense for things that people wouldnt even know. I reallly think that dogs have some sort of intuitive sense that people just dont have. On a side note, my most dangerous pet was probably my copperhead, while the funniest was the baby turkey I had in my dorm.

    I told you about the copperhead. The turkey was a ***** to sneak in cuz we lived on the 12th floor. We took it up the stairs and it was squawkin like a mofo the whole way up. We eventually gave it back to the feed store cuz it would decide to go on these screeching tyrades at the most ungodly hours of the night. His name was Moses. After we got rid of Moses, we got Wallace shortly after and he worked out much better.

  17. I can't beat a baby turkey, much less a copperhead lol. I had a baby Nile Monitor that I gave to a friend after I couldn't take care of it. The largest he grew while I had him was about 18" and he was extremely docile for being a Nile.

    Currently have the "dummy duo" Big dummy is my "blue nose" APBT. He's 6 months
    Little dummy is the brains (not much of em). A female pug. She's 8 months.

  18. Nice dogs, real pretty pit.

  19. Found a breeder in my area. Did about a 2 hour phone interview and they checked my references including the vet I used. I have an appt on Tuesday to go look at some current pups including a 5 month female they have.

    I was a little worried about getting one a little older but she has all shots and has been trained as well as house/crate ready too. They are knocking 500 off of her price and selling her for the cost of pet quality; she is possible show quality.

    Available

    She's the top picture shown. Anyone that has time to check it out or offer some advice beore I head over, would be appreciated.

    Ahh, he was pre-Wallace. I remember the copperhead, which was a horrible idea, BTW.

  21. Awww what a beautiful blue pit!!

    Jay: She is a pretty girl. Could be a great fit, however I'm partial to blue and those baby pups were sooooo cute. Pick me up one while you are there!!!!

  22. I have a 3 year old pure bred blue doberman, he's about 95 lbs and tall but he has a pretty blocky head for a dobie. He (edit)has gone after smaller dogs and he killed 1 cat and numerous opossums, raccoons, birds, etc etc. He is extremely protective of my wife (thats why I got him). Very cautious around people, I dont let anyone in the house - Instead I bring out the dog to meet them outside of "his turf." Very friendly with people once he gets to know them. He is pretty neurotic (i've never had a dobie that wasnt, or seen one that wasnt) and goofy. He is overly affectionate which pisses me off but my wife loves it. He likes to hug, its really bizarre.. he'll come up and put his arms around you and lay his head on you for as long as you'll let him. He's been difficult to train - I adopted him at a 1.5 yr old and he was a guard dog and was abused pretty bad. I dont recommend anyone get a dobie unless they understand animal behavior and have experience training dominant/aggressive dogs. He has major abandonment issues as he was adopted and brought back many times due to training difficulties. He whines a lot because of it which is annoying but its not something Ive been able to break

    I also have a red doberman/terrier mix. She is 50 lbs and she is a beautiful dog. She was also adopted, they fixed her unfortunately b/c i'd love to breed her. She is brilliant and has the best temperment of any dog i've ever seen.

    PS - I hate pits from personal experiences. I've had to shoot 2 of them - one on my property and one of them attacked my little dog while I had her on a walk. Too many irresponsible idiots buy them b/c they think they are 'cool.' Same goes for presas et al.

  23. A gunslinger/dog walker? j/k I won't judge you since I wasn't there but I would only shoot an animal as a last resort. I hope there was more to the story than just 'on my property' for you to kill the dog.

    I carry a pistol nearly every minute of every day. I also have a permit to do so.

    If a large, off-leash aggressive animal viciously attacked your leashed animal and you could not separate them using the standard means (punching, kicking, hitting with objects) would you just let your animal die? No, you wouldn't - you'd use whatever means possible. If the owner came out I might have had to shoot them too. Why? Because I live in the GHETTO. A-Holes here constantly ignore the laws and let their animals run wild. Many are large, aggressive pit bulls with no training that need to be put down, not let roam free... especially considering the amount of children in the neighborhood.

    My dogs, which are always on leash (even on my property) have been attacked numerous times by pits. I do carry an Asp which will normally deter if not knock unconscious most of them. However, if that does not work then I do what I have to do. These attacks normally result in expensive vet bills ($300 or more) for ME.

    My dogs ARE my CHILDREN and there is no way on earth I'd let one of them die without doing everything in my power in their defense.

    But its ok for you to brag about your doberman killing small dogs? You didnt have to tell us you lived in the ghetto we could tell by your avatar. I guess living in a ****hole justifies your need to carry both and asp and a pistol, either that or you're just afraid. Why dont you do us all a favor and go away now.

    She looks real good man. Plus her ears are already done so that will save you some expense, and at 5 mos, she should be housebroken as well (if shes been living inside).

    Dude I didnt even write it right. I just checked my post and edited. He's never killed another dog, only attacked them. I dont let him near other male dogs or small dogs just in case . He is good with all females (of course). He got 1 stray cat and a whole bunch of opossums and raccoons.

    You construed that as bragging? Brilliant. Maybe if you read again (you can read... right?) - I'd hoped my original post would serve more as a warning to those considering dobermans and other aggressive breed dogs that are known to have high prey drives that are difficult to break.

    Now I'm also bad for being a libertarian and defending our rights as set forth in the constitution.. you got all that from my avatar? I am impressed... Does my avatar offend you that much? If so you are living in the wrong country my boy.

    I carry a pistol because it's my right. I carry an asp because I'm sick of walking my dogs and having ignorant a-holes with untrained aggressive dogs running out and attacking my dogs which are leashed and not doing any harm. Have you tried to pull a 70+ lb pit off another dog? Probably not.

    Did I offend you for saying something negative about pit bulls? I am so sorry.

  28. Well if you have this happen often you should maybe buy a break stick. You put it behind the pits back teeth and turn it and it unlocks the dogs jaws. All the pits I've ever had were gentle and good with other dogs.

    It's often enough for me to have bought an asp lol. I appreciate the link, I will look into the breaksticks.

    The problem really lies with the people around here.. they get these dogs as status symbol and usually tie them out in their yard with speaker wire or something. The poor dogs are deprived of food half the time and they never receive any training (which pits love). They also lack socialization with other dogs which is a shame. I've got friends who have great pits, very friendly and social dogs FWIW

  30. I can't say i'm for shooting dogs. It's a shame that there are so many irresponsible people that own pit bulls. When I was 12 some guy shot my boxer right between his eye and snout. My dog was in my neighbors yard, across from where the guy lives and he shot him through the fence.

    He said that my dog was "ramming" the fence in a vicious manner, but I know damn well that my boxer is the biggest puss on the face of the planet.

    My pitbull I have now is 6 months old, so his behavior can change as he ages. However, he's very calm with kids and other animals. MY 4 year old nephew smacks him (not something I encourage, but he's a kid) and all my dog does is lick him.

    My pug gets annoyed and chases my pit. I was walking him and a curious mastiff came to see what the big fuss was and all they did was smell each other, my dog just wanted to play.

    I understand there's a lot of aggressive dogs, but it's all in how you raise them, some are stubborn and it's just in their blood. I'm sure there are other alternative to shooting a dog. They don't have the understanding that you do.
