I just want to thank you all for the facts and dang do they ring true. I told a friend of mine that I got snoop and I heard all the reasons not to have him. I had to set him straight on how good these dogs really are.

TO ADD ABOUT TRAINERS

A) Pet stores do not apply as dog trainers, PetSmart / Petco for puppy socialization class GREAT if you wanna socialize.

B) Find a DOG TRAINER do there puppy class to there advance for group or go totally private. AS a Dog trainer I tell APBT owners to take group classes with there PUPPY to start the socialization process. If they have on 8 months or older I have them start in private so WE can figure out there socialization and Dog Aggression levels, if good APBT w/o DA then GO into group class for socialization with humans and dogs, if DA stay in private and have the DT continue to EVALUATE the dog while training. So they can give you there recommendations while in class and out.

C) If you adopt one from a shelter and you are having issues with it FIND A DOG TRAINER THATS ANIMAL BEHAVIOR CERTIFIED So you can find out the problem and fix it ... (DO NOT JUST GO AND TROUGH THE DOG BACK TO THE WOLVES "Animal Shelter" THATS NOW A REASON FOR THEM TO PUT THE DOG DOWN) The reason I state that is the Humane Society is always looking for a reason to put a wonderful APBT dog down.

LAST NOTE: Remember taking your dog out of your yard good dog or bad dog ... they are a dog and dogs will do what they fill is necessary so dont think your dog is a GREAT dog with everyone or everything ALWAYS have caution while out in the world. BE a GREAT OWNER OF THIS BREED.

Ok My 3 cents .... GREAT IDEA FOR A POST/STICKY

In 1835 Baiting became illegal in England,where bulldogs were used for companions, farm, stock work, fighting,baiting and hunting.
When baiting became illegal, the new blood sport of dog fighting... to make the dogs more effective in the pits, selective breeding made bulldogs more aggressive to animals, in which a bulldog is not typically aggressive with their own breed..Scrappy sporting terriers were crossed into some of the fighting bulldogs ti enhance agility and performance. The crosses were called bull and terriers, and pit terriers. It is considered general knowledge that there were the first pit bulls....
They came from the old bulldog... mixed with a terrier...This is how the APBT got its name....

The APBT was imported to America after the civil war...In America to get away from the fighting stigma, the renamed the APBT to the American Staffordshire Terrier..Some believe they are 2 Different breeds, but they are one of the same. If you disagree thats ok... we all have our own opinion...There has been alot of imbreeding over the years, but one fact is that the APBT is a replica of the english bulldog, and that is where they originated from. They are loving, loyal, quick learners and easy to train... all the traits of the bulldog, and unremakable similarity... The terrier part is what makes them a little smaller in size.
according to ukc standards size ranges are as follows..
Males between 35 and 60 lbs Height 18-19 inches at shoulder
Females between 30 and 50 lbs height 17 to 18 inches at shoulder
The massive heads and broad wide bodies are not typical traits of the real APBT... they interfere with the breeds work ability and breathing ability... People breed them how they want and think bigger is better, but it takes away from all the APBT was originally bred for.
And another fact is they rate at 94% in temperament testing... which is way above other breeds...
Another fact is they do not have the most human bites in K-9 history, they are broadcasted as if they do ,but they do not, the akita tops them all!! Pit bulls actually have a low number of unprovoked human attacks, but they just seem to hit headlines when the do bite... With their side of the story untold

They retrain faster than other breed even after they have been abused and mistreated... I know this for a fact!! i took in 2 abused APBT's, both the most adoring dogs i have ever had...anyway theres a lil history info for u... Thanks for reading, all replies welcome....

... the pitbull needs "Positive press".... I take Max out walking in public allthe time just to let people see a pit bull that`s doing something positive. We as breed owners are the only ones who have a half a chance of changing the dogs bad rep. Every chance you get ,let your dog show off some positive press.

Angry STFU

How is a dog park setting you dog up for failure?! that is the most ridiculous thing....if the dogs in the park are stable and running around, any dog will be fine. Let some yappie dog into the park and yes, all dogs will have issues....but your general statement is straight ignorant.

Bulldogs were bred to fight other dogs that was the reason they were created it's their genetic makeup to be dog aggressive therefore they don't have a PACK mentality they shouldn't go anywhere near a damn dog park it's irresponsible and can only end it great tragedy. Even if your dog doesn't start the fight it if given the opportunity he will finish it.
