Genetic DA is not opinion, its fact.
's shouldnt be in dog parks, that is also not opinion its fact. Knowing the breed history and being responsible with that history and what the dogs were bred for, etc is fact.
Its not opinion based off experiences, its fact based on what this breed was originally meant for and how much of that genetically speaking is still in the breed regardless of if its still tested or proven in todays apbt
Thats just like a debate i saw of Fila owners. Those dogs are not for everyone and they are definitely not a breed for a novice. If properly bred they are also not a breed you just take out every where with you either. Its the same concept with different set of rules. APBT
+ other dogs = negative out come. (sooner or later, it all ends the same)
It is a HUGE deal for owners when we have BSL
. Every single situation where an APBT
or any bull and terrier breed attacks a person due to breeding/neglect or a dog can be a direct impact on this breed when it comes to regulations/laws/etc.
I know its not exactly on topic and for that i apologize however to ignore something that has the potential of being THAT sever is just as dangerous. As others say this topic has been beating to death and beyond but its apparent it needs to be. Continuously. More and more new owners of these dogs (and other breeds) dive right in without the proper knowledge and as a result sooner or later effects everyone. Properly educated/experienced or not. To assume it doesn't is just as ignorant.
Your right, theyre dog and they DO have the right to do as they please. However at the same time your wrong when one wrong step affects so many other people. If it hasn't affected you how long do you think that can continue? BSL
is spreading like wild fire right now.
DA/HA genetic breeds all have a rightful place with rightful owners. We are not talking about small all friendly breeds on this thread. To believe any person can own these breeds is just plain wrong.
