And this is why I love this breed...

My husband and I live in the middle of nowhere... So taking the dogs for a walk is always fun because we can go pretty much where ever we want and we have so many different routes we can take. So last night we took the dogs and the kids for a walk... Imagine us with three kids all girls 10, 8, and 3 plus three dogs Sarge (1 1/2 male) Nikita (8 mos female) and Lulu (ShihTzu 1 yr female)... Yeah we look like a military troop coming through and normally no one even talks to us (cause of the dogs) which I am fine with ( I would rather them say nothing than something rude).

So since we had our girls with us we decided to sidetrack our walk to the river, througth the park to let the kids play for a bit too. We did as usual and took the dogs to the empty corner of the park so no one gets offended (plus some people let theirs off leash sometimes). No one was in the kids area which was cool no overly worried parents "saving" their kids from my dogs. We had been there about 20 minutes when a lady with her three children comes into the area. Her youngest was about 2 and the oldest about 12 or 13. SHE CAME AND SAT ABOUT 5 FEET FROM US!! So I thought ok whatever we were here first so I dont want to hear crap about my dogs.

Next thing I know she is telling her 2 year old to "come look at the puppies" I was shocked. I thought well she must own bully breeds then right? Nope!! We started talking and she has labs. She asked what breed mine were and I told her and she didnt even flinch. She commented on how calm they are and how nice they are. Sarge slimmed her 2 year old across the face and she was cracking up at it.

I guess we get so used to the negatively surrounding our breeds that we expect it all the time. I was so proud of my dogs last night!! Sarge got an extra treat last night because he laid next to that 2 year old for almost 30 minutes loving on her.

Just had to share a good story....

I guess I need to stay more positive that people will accept them... But that makes it harder when they do reject them... you know?

Its always good to get some positive reinforcement that not every one hates our beloved breed.

It's crazy that a situation like this can brighten your day. I've been there before and it happened to be with an older woman, who I thought would hate my pup (I had stereotyped her) but she didn't see a monster, just a dog. I ,too, used to prepare for the worst but then when you get a compliment it's like you feel so good and you get so proud of your pups! This is exactly why I always go out of my way to say something nice to someone with their pups because they will then feel like a million bucks and treat their pups like the prized possessions they are

i was walking evil the other day and two 13 yr olds actually yelled to me how good looking my dog was. then they asked what kind of dog he was.i said with pride he was a pitbull and there reply was hes so cute lol and they wanted one. most of the neighbors have big dogs so they really dont look down on me. some have dobs, rotts, and labs. its good to hear your story it makes your heart melt when people look at a pitbull as just another dog.

Unfortunately my neighborhood is full of foo foo dogs and lab owners... No offense to anyone but the lab owners in my neck of the woods seem to think they can let their dogs roam free and that they would never cause any havoc... Fortunately, my dogs are not DA (yet) and are extremely well trained and behaved... But I do live in an area where PETA is very big...

I love it when I see little old ladies in my neighborhood and they tell me how pretty Loki is. Then when they ask what kind he is I usually expect them to cringe when I say Pit Bull but they always just tell me how beautiful they think he is again...makes my day

I live in a pretty conservative town, filled with million-dollar houses and thousands of shi-tzus, yorkies, chihuahuas, etc. After reading a lot of stories online about the negative ressponses people get, I was prepared for the worst when I got my pups.

Surprisingly, in the almost 7 months I've had them, walking around the neighborhood, etc, I have yet to get ONE completely negative response. The worst response I've ever had was from a gentleman who asked if my dogs were friendly and then, when told yes and that they were pitbulls, made the comment that they were awfully friendly for pitbulls. But he didn't stop petting them and it turned out to be a great educational moment.

Here's to hoping the word is spreading about these great dogs!

That's where you say "That's how they're supposed to be!"
