    Ya some of them just look so unnatural. An APBT should be muscular, but also athletic and agile. Some of the poor little things Ive seen look like musclebound stumps with heads as big as their bodies.

    And by calling them a 'mixed breed' (the guy in question) I think he is under the impression that Breeders are still forced to cross-breed every time to produce the Pitty.
    How long til u get your OEB?

  4. who is forced?? some ppl like the taller athletic dog... yet some like the short thick "meaner looking" breed... by calling them all pits is not right... thats why theis dogs have such a bad rap... everyone thinks they are all the same.by seperating the breeds we can at least break the steriotype of all pits being the same..you would really have to be an owner to know what i mean. im trying to post some pics right now, it is not working

  6. Number 1 is not the same a number 2




  7. i have another puppy but, i cant get the pic up....THE black apbt is mine

    and if u have owned a pit, then u should know about the ignorant comments ppl say... yesterday a father told his kid my dog was a human killer....WTF.. and when ppl aske what kinda of dog it is, they respond better when u tell them the full breed name rather than just saying PITBULL

    Not being confrontational, but I am confused as to your position. Do you think that the nomenclature 'Pitbull' and 'American Pitbull Terrier' denote differing breeds?

    People often mistakingly class AmStaffs and Staffs as Pitbulls, but correctly, a Pitbull and APBT are synonymous.

  10. ya but thats like saying all americans are mexican american. its just too broad.. alot of ppl have staffs other mixes yet still call them pitbull AND apbt... the title pitbull is so tarnished, i just dont see that as proper.. if the breed has a name it deserves to be called an APBT

    EDIT: no... i know a pitbull is an american PITBULL terrier... but thats what it is... AN AMERICAN PITBULL TERRIER>> not a PITBULL ... i dono if u get my drift.. mabey im not explaining it right?

    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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

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

    Yep.

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


  18. 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
