    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.
    Understand its a last resort. I love animals... and I hate to have had to do it. But I have more hate for the people that get these dogs and dont train them or turn them aggressive. The only one who gets punished in the end is the dog, not the idiot owner.


  2. Keep it nice folks. Let us not turn a thread into something good as it was intended into a pissing match.

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.
    Based on your standards you should have killed your Doberman on a few occasions. Why do you let it live? Because it's yours? That's selfish, IMO. I understand where you're coming from, but why let your dog get away with it? Not trying to start sh*t man, I'd just like an explanation as to why it's ok for your dog to kill, but if someone elses dog attacks you kill it.

    Doberman's are some crazy dogs. My friend had one and I knew it well, then one night I was sleeping and it latched on to my arm. I managed to get it off of me, but it was basically in attack mode, so I slowly crept out of the house. Saw the thing a week later and it acted like it was my best friend. Not saying all Doberman's are crazy, just the ones I've encountered.

    My dog's never hurt/injured another dog. Why? Because he's leashed and restrained.

    Dobies are very very neurotic!! lol you are lucky it didnt get your neck or anything

    Yeah, it would've been a pisser had it got my jugular.

    I'm glad that you leash your dog, but it seems to be a danger. I imagine all the killings happened on your property? Please keep a close eye on your dog, it clearly wants to do damage. It would suck if it hurt someone/something and you ended up having to put him/her to sleep.

    I take him out when I walk the neighborhood, otherwise he stays inside or in the fenced yard. He is a definite risk but the poor thing has been in and out of fosters half his life so I give him a good home and lots of love. Its normally my little one that gets attacked, not sure why b/c shes a female and its usually males attacking her but she tends to be dominant with other dogs so thats probably it. I am not sure what we'll do when we decide to have kids. We'll move out of the neighborhood and probably make him an outside dog at that point.

    Dobies dont live long so when he kicks the bucket I want to get an american bulldog or a german sheppard.

    Haha... I don't get cat people.

    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.
    Haha you try to insult my intelligence right after you admit to writing your original post wrong, which is what caused the confusion. Listen tard, I made a thread for people to talk about their pets and you come in rambling on about "hating pits" and "knocking dogs unconscious" and "shooting them". Thats ****ing ridiculous. Do you think anyone wants to read that stupid ****? As far as breaking up dog fights, Ive done it PLENTY. My dog happens to be dog aggressive (hes been that way since he was 5 months old), therefore he is ALWAYS leashed, and I dont take him places where I know other dogs will be. Every time he has gotten into it with some other dog, it's because they run over to him while he is leashed. I admit, it can he hard as hell to separate two big strong dogs but it can be done if youre not an idiot. There's NO reason to ever have to shoot either of the dogs. Two months ago, a Doberman ran over to me and my dog while I was walking him and he snatched it. Should I have just shot the Doberman?

  10. Argument made. we know where yall stand

  11. So anyway, when do you pick up your puppy Jay!

  12. U gotta post pics when u get her. A Corso is something to be proud of. There's a shelter by my house that had a whole litter of Presas dropped off there in december. I wanted one so bad.

  13. Tuesday is the appt to meet the pups. Not sure if I'll get one of these or put a deposit on one for their scheduled July litter

    Damn, you don't like cats? Cats are great, they don't listen, but they're very smart loving animals, plus they don't smell bad. I love all animals though. I knew this redneck guy that had a pet groundhog, probably the coolest pet I've ever encountered.

    I was looking through some pics of the stud. Looks like quite the character, very good looking dog. I have a feeling that once you see the litter you're going to be won over and leave with a pup soon after.

    Lol, was it a groundhog or a prairie dog?

    I'm not entirely sure you understand canine psychology. It seems you have a victim mentality, whereas your dog is part of the issue - either that, or you are the most unfortunate person on the face of planet.

    Obviously, if these attacks are often enough you have bought an ATP, your dog is involved. Now, do not construe this as your dog directly attacking another, but giving/feeding off negative energy, assuming dominance positions (that you did not recognize), and so on. I have never heard of one dog, or one individual, attacked so many times without provocation.

    If your dog was a guard dog, he will more than likely assume aggressive positions/stances when out with you in public. The fact you did not, or cannot, recognize this and somebody else's pet was killed because of your ignorance is somewhat unfathomable. Provocation is obviously occurring, and you are not recognizing it - this is your fault.

    Moral of the story:

    Realize your dog does not fare well with other canines, and stop walking it where you may encounter them; hopefully, with this approach, we might avoid your Dirty Harry attitude and less dogs will be needlessly shot.

    Cases like this make me glad purchasing a gun is harder than walking into Wal-Mart in Canada.

    It was a groundhog. I live in D.C., they're very common here. The thing was bada$$, it had the coolest personality.

    That would be sweet. Personally, ive always wanted a wombat.

  20. I wanted a puma

    Yes, wombat's are awesome. This groundhog was kind of like a mini-wombat, he would occasionally bumrush you with his head down. He always had a look on his face like "**** off", but he was really nice and would sit on your lap as much as possible.

  22. Quote Originally Posted by Jayhawkk View Post

    A puma would be great, but I hope you've got a good "mata leon", just in case.

  23. Have a good what?

  24. Quote Originally Posted by Jayhawkk View Post

    That is a beautiful animal, damn. Mata leon means lion kill, the brazilians use it referring to a rear naked choke, which is used to kill big cats in the jungle.

    I can picture you with that along with some sort of mini-livestock like a pig or a horse.

  26. Has anybody owned, or known anybody who owned, those Bengal house cat breeds? They are pretty amazing.

    My friend had one. Theyre pretty cool. They act more like a dog and they like water. There was a guy who had a pet bobcat and walked it on a leash who lived by the lakehouse I used to frequent. Just saw it from a distance though.

    I'm pretty sure Twinkle qualifies as mini-livestock.
