As for the dog parks, just because they have some sort of bully breed in them doesn't mean that they can't go to a dog park. Not all of them are prone to snapping. They have just as much of a right as other dogs to go to dog parks. I just don't trust the germs at dog parks to take my Jaws yet.
First off, it's a shame these dogs are even mixed with cur dogs (non ApBT
They should never be bred to another breed.
What, you want a "pit bull?" There is only the American (pit) Bull Terrier.
Any mix is not worthy of being labeled with pit dogs. They are what give the true breed a bad name.
Along with their owners!
You say you're wanting to educate the ignorant, yet you haven't educated yourself.
"Bully" breeds are a modern term. And ApBT
's ARE NOT BULLY's!
BULLY's ARE NOT ApBT
Now as for dog parks, you're kidding, right!?
If you know anything about the ApBT
, you know they can turn on at any time,
and that some are just slow starters.
All it takes is one incident to give a bad label to the breed for ten years.
If you want a dog that will be fine at a dog park, GET YOURSELF A Poodle.
's desire to fight, not because they are trained to, but because it is born in them.
Whatever comes from genetics can NEVER be changed!
Don't be one of them fools who thinks they can change nature...
If there is any ApBT
blood in there, he does not belong at a dog park! PERIOD!
And your dog is an unknown...don't label it something you want it to be.
"Pit mix?" Come on, any mix is a mutt, officially.
But in ApBT
circles, it will never be an ApBT
. Plain and simple.
