The proof is in the pudding...

So today there was a giant swap meet at a local ski area, I took my 9 month old Pit Mix " sorry no papers " and decided to do a little independent study...

My cousin had his 6 month old pup on standby....


First I went through the crowds of people with my pooch...

Just so you know what he looks like!!!



I spent 15 minutes around a hundred or so people with my 9 year old daughter and pooch, not ONE person went any where near him... No big chain collars, nothing to make him look intimidating, just a well mannered, polite Pitbull mix... I could clearly see that people would push their children to the side to avoid him...

I went out to the truck, and grabbed my cousins 6 month old golden retreiver and left my dog in the truck... I couldn't walk 6 feet without him getting a amazing amount of attention, every kid wanted to pet him and not one parent even questioned if he was friendly or not...

I had no idea people would accept the dogs in such different ways, and I only wish I had it on video....

Comes with owning one. I get it occasionally around where I live. It's sad but unfortunately it happens. It broke my heart when Cain was 3 months old and people would tell me he'll be a killer an that they're bad breeds of dogs etc.

Lol the other morning somebody knocked on my door at like 6am. My husband was out hunting and I was a little freaked out because they kept banging on my door really hard. So I grabbed a leash and took my 80 lb bully pup to the door with me. He's the sweetest dog you'll ever meet he wouldn't hurt a fly but whoever was at my door didn't know that. It ended up being the police. They jumped in their car and rolled the windows up lmao. Then they drove through my yard and cracked a window to let me know oops they had the wrong house. It's funny because if I would've walked out the door with a poodle nobody would've ran.

It is what it is. People are ignorant. Love your pup though, super cute! I'm just glad that they saw him in public and well behaved, whether they liked it or not.

Surprisingly, having owned pitbull like dogs or pit mixes for three years (I know that's not long) but I've never had anyone do anything like that to me. Ppl always tell me how beautiful my dogs are. But when I posted it on fb that I got a pitbull ppl went crazy and questioned my parenting. Are you kidding?! Yea, I would definitely bring a child killing dog around my kids!!! Sounds great! Lol

It actually wouldn't bother me that much if people stayed away from me while I was out and about with my pups; I don't really like people that much, and it weirds me out when random strangers just come up to me out of the blue.

Welcome to pit ownership my friend, Savannah goes with me to fests and fairs,and it's about 50/50 with people. Some people come up and want to pet her, others still are off standish. The funniest part is, she's always much more well behaved than other people's dogs...get yourself some thicker skin, it's part of being a pit owner. lol

cool story... GREAT LOOKING DOG~ wouldn't think it: not with that cute lil


the opposite happens to me..

2002 Sunfeast Bartlesville, OK

Quote:
I was walking hooch with my oldest son, the only child at that time, and his mamma. I had made a head harness/ muzzle out of a small dog harness that I was able to adjust small for his muzzle and the part that is used for the body, fit around the back of Hooches head; with some sewing needed. EVERYONE with the odd looking head collar on him and all asked to pet our dog. We had to stop every 2min. People had asked why for the collar, I said clear as day "hes a dog killer; loves people REALLY loves dogs" everyone kinda chuckled and said "i bet" or something near it. In one of those packs of people a man with a 165lb Dogue de Bourdeaux who was very DA. Wanted to see this "Hooch dog" everyone was talking bout; probably because he had a real "Turner & Hooch". The dog he had made very aggressive behavior signs, loud snarl/barking and pulling his owner toward my family, my dog, myself and a crowd of about 8 people with gawkers all around, my dog hadn't let out any obnoxious behavior and when that dog got so close Hooch said "thats close enough". I let out one of my "AT" and popped the leash..... BOY~ everyone shut up for about 2.3 seconds and then did about 20 people jump in the they ripped that man up verbally and cast him and his worthless dog out of the park. Here I thought they were going to do it to me and my dog.
Not every situation is the same......... but everywhere I go everyone has always loved my Hooch dogs.. Sometimes until I say he's an APBT.. they would jump back 5ft at that moment and say "you trust him around your kids".. I'd say: "THERE is NOT one HUMAN I trust more than this DOG". R.I.P Hooch a one of a kind~


The dogs I have now get just as much attention because they are small 37lbs is the heaviest male grown. Fitz ain't done growin yet. Hoagie whos 32-35lbs gets all kinds of attention and people argue.. "thats not a pitbull" ... I then have to start educating..

People are amazed by Hoagies intelligence, and athletic abilities.. They're amazed that I have an APBT whos so lil and can out do big dogs at all sorts of things: like treeing a bear on his own. Hoagie is the king of the soccer field..

Im sure every town is different, I only live in REP states that are conservative to the Constitution.

REMEMBER real Dog men and women are TRUE LIBERTARIANS... Follow your HEART TODAY and NOT the TV.. DON'T DRINK THE KOOLAID..

yeah, here where i am its half and half. sometimes i get people with the whole "pit bulls are misunderstood" attitude. and other times i get the lil old lady dragging her ankle biter "out of the way of the killer pit bull". but i do chuckle when someone is takin the time to pet Odin and then asks me "hes not gunna bite me, right?".... i want to say cmon stupid ur petting him. but i respond with "no, hes a good dog and i wouldnt bring him out if he wasnt."

get ur thick skin on and just focus on having a good, well behaved "pit bull" so the public can get a taste of what this breed is supposed to be.

Doesn't surprise me . Here though we have alot of people who own bully breeds and love them so we usually get people stopping to say hi, had people stop in cars and get out to come meet our dogs too lol. I think just depends on your area and the people, anyone who knows the breed will stop and say hi usually. I have experienced negative reactions though as well, goes hand in hand with owning this breed and I could care less if someone wants to pet some foo foo doggy over mine , to each there own lol.

Yea, the looks and stares of disaproval follow me and our pitbulls everywhere. Sometimes I will get people that want to pet my pit bull and then tell me how sweet she/he is and ask me what kind of dog I have and I will say "A pit bull mix of some type" and they will jump back and say "Oh I'm afraid of those!". Makes me roll my eyes.
