I agree 100% with StaffDaddy!

I am black, dress hip hop, J's to ball cap backwards, perched on top of my head, ridiculous sized earrings, shades even at night lol, and listen to rap daily. Own 4 APBTs and most likely from that description, to some I'm a dogfighter, to others a idiot, and to some a racist expletive I won't type on this board.

Fact is I'm a graduate of a major University, father of 3, a homeowner (not mortgage payer, home payed off owner lol), husband that's right no kids born out of wedlock all with the same woman, have had a total of 2 litters in my entire adult life, have started and sold 2 businesses, and a published writer. I live in a very middle to upperclass community.

All of these things could be found out rather easily, by just talking to me. If you stopped at my outward appearance then you know absolutely nothing about me, much less my dogs. I am very careful to never judge someone on their appearance, human beings are always deeper than their clothes.

Funny thing is, so are our dogs. See because a dog looks like an AmBully doesn't make it a unhealthy two steps from death, drug dealers pet. Just because a dog is a well conditioned ADBA dog doesn't make it game. Funny thing is the deeper you delve the more you will know.

Last note, I surround myself with people who don't judge off of appearance but quality of character. The genral public perception of these dogs is negative, regardless of how I'm dressed I have more middle age white people come up to me and ask to pet my dogs than anyone. Maybe because my dogs are clean and wagging their tails at people, and my daughters are generally right beside us.

What's funny is when people see my GB bred dog in a dog box on the back of my truck, they get more heated than when they see me with my UKC dogs and how I'm dressed. Must be the steel cage lol!

you just remindede me of something. my aunt in law has a two sons very young. the older one is smarter then ne one i ever met! he remembers e erything and his teachers are intimidated by him. i think he is in 5th grade. well his dad just died and they moved to VA with the moms dad. and the mom live alone...long story. well the kid wants to die now cuz he heard the grandfather say he wishes the younger brother had a better role model. now she named her kids wierd names so i have no idea how to spell them. but the grandfather was talking about the older brother and his point was the way he dresses. he wears gothic clothes mostly all black. he has a blue mohawk. and he thinks he is a bad role model because of how he dresses! i know this has nothing to do with apbts but i feel like he would beable to relate to you. i swaer this kid is like a genious! he is very into maps and road maps. he can tell you exactly how to get from ct to maine or whatever state you wanted to go to. he is a very nice kid and has great mannersand likes to help take care of his younger brother but the grandfather hates him because of how he dresses.

I've been reading all the posts and I think it's really cool that no one is being insulting. It had to be said because I always expect something like that! LOL

Where this all came from is Pit Bull Awareness Day. A lady in the park came up and started talking to me. Turns out she was visiting family from out of town and was a shelter volunteer back home. She told me it was really great to see this group of people from so many different walks of life acting like family. She also said that she has noticed that a lot of people who are marginalized by society are drawn to the "bad rap" dogs at her shelter. What I took away from it was that a lot of pittie/bully owners, rottie owners, dobie owners, etc. have an image problem, too. So we make choices about how we dress & decorate ourselves and accept that the average person is going to pre-judge us. So we have a deeper feel for the image problems our dogs have. We are sometimes the underdogs (even though it is mostly by choice) and it gives us a greater appreciation for our media-damaged lovies!

I know, I know, it's a bit pop-psych but I was curious what others thought!

My father passed when I was young as well. Not that young, but in High School. Definitely know how tough it can be. I was an older brother and have always had a diffirent swag or dress. I have worn goggles, diffierent color shoes, and earrings. I laugh a lot but I can remember relatives thought I would rub off on my brother and he would be girl crazy just like me, but nope. For as diffirent as I was I was his hero, he is now one of the top attorneys in GA and is now one of my heroes lol.

Sounds like a good kid! PM me if there is anything I could do, or you would like me to do.

I come from a very mixed family. I have family that dress like cholos. I have family that dress pentecostal. I look white when Im not tan. I look mexican when I am. There is a friend I consider my second dad. He's black. My dad is blone hair blue eyes and wears a cowboy hat. He doesnt ride. My two best friends... Navajo/oneida indian and a red hair fair skinned alaskan. With my mixed butt tossed in there. Now we got looks Haha. I'm a tomboy..most my other girl cousins are girly. My grandfather is back country missouri, grew up with swept dirt floors, use to hunt squirl...I mean I have it all in my family or who I consider family. One thing its taught me...dont judge a book by its cover.

But I think people will always pigeonhole what they dont understand. I think its rather sad. You miss out on so much in my opinion. I really feel before anyone gives a true opinion about something they should really learn about it. Not just assumptions. But thats me and that would be a semi perfect world.

So yeah with my rambled response haha. I do think image affects peoples perception of this breed.
