    I think that is the stem of your confusion - allowing others to muddy your opinion.

    The name, 'Pitbull' does refer, when used properly, to APBT. There is no need to further distinguish it. If it is a mix, say, "It is an AmStaff/Pit mix", as the name Pitbull is properly referencing APBT. No need to broaden that name.


  2. but how is that different then just stating AMERICN PITBULL TERRIER. ... thats kinda like saying u have a poodle/lab mix..... of course u use the name lab, but thats not its real breed name... just like pit/pitbull, is not the full APBT breed name...im just saying when ppl ask for the type of dog i have i say APBT, cuz thats what it is....i dono if i explained this right... i have to go pick up a present for fathers day...


    pitbulls is too general..... thats all....in my opinion thats like saying if u have a boston terrier, its a terrier, considering there is so many terrier breeds out there, i dono, mabey im worng... idono, i gotto go

  3. DoW, i think you're confusing yourself on their argument.

    Look dude, I'm not going to argue with you anymore. I used to own an APBT and I am definitely an advocate of the breed. I just think you are a bit confused. I understand that the name "pitbull" has been given a negative connotation by the media, which is why sometimes I would tell people my dog was an Amstaff (even though she was an APBT). But the fact remains that the proper name of the breed is American Pitbull Terrier. If it is a pitbull, it's an American Pitbull Terrier. If it's a mix, then it's a mix.

  5. so when i say pitbull... that is only in reference to a apbt?

    Yep.

  7. No pets at the moment; probably getting a Bengal cat when I get my new place.


  8. I will attest to the bum rap that pits get. My buddy and his family have several pits, and they are great dogs (they are very sensitive).

    As far as what pets I have:

    2 ferrets

    and

    10 chickens (although they are utilized for their eggs, and insect control, and not so much kept as pets. Even though baby chicks are really cute)

    My kids have allergies so we can't have dogs or cats.

    they are kind of cat-ish, dislike water, perch in high places, etc. very protective of family, very high prey drive. you have to be cautious about opening doors to the outside world around them, and can expect to never take them for a walk without a leash. mine range from 15-23lbs which 19 or so is normal. nice dogs tho, very smart. the male easily can open the crates from the inside or outside, but doesn't when its bedtime or he is being put away (the only time i've watched him do it was before the females were fixed and one was in heat). He'll actually open it from the outside himself if its time to go to bed and its closed

    Now, being a male, it's only natural for me to immediately dislike a cat when I see one. Oddly, when I met my wife in Michigan (girlfriend then), she had just recently found a tiny black cat in a wood pile somewhere in Detroit. He's the coolest cat I've ever been in contact with, and he acts much more like a puppy in some regard. He's very playful, likes to get thrown around and pushed on the floor, and even plays tug-o-war with me.

    He's pretty awesome...he's also fat even though I watch how often and what he's fed. Endomorph-kitty

    I lost my boy 3 years ago now, he was only 10months old it was tragic. I still think about him every single day... It was eating me up and messing with me cause for a long time I would think what I could have find to change wat happened and he would still be hear. Then I came to grips with it all and realize what I's happened can't change no matter what and I have to keep moving forward! Something good comes from something bad and I believe because of him and what happened made me who I am today. Made me aware that life is not a joke and to make everyday count.. I became a better person because of what happen.

    Just keep your head up and keep moving forwards and try find what good has come from this, there will be something that he had changed about you!

    I got my boy tattooed on my arm so I still see him every morning and he still comes for a walk with me and my other dogs! Lol all the best
