Talked him out of one of my dogs.....

Well I just had a man and his family over to my house to look at our dogs. They were interested in getting a dog from us when we do our next breeding, whenever that might be. So I began talking to them. They really really wanted to get an APBT, or so they thought. They had been talking to a breeder in their area that had, now get this, told them that he could give them a TEMPERAMENT GUARANTEE!!!! Now as kindly as I could, I told them this guy either didnt have true APBT OR HE WAS INSANE. You cant give a temperament guarantee on an APBT, especially a puppy.

Anyways the longer we talked the more I found out about them I told them that I couldn't guarantee mine not to be animal aggressive or have prey drive, and then I explained why. I found out they had other dogs and cats and horses and that they wanted this pup to interract sociably with all of the above. I told them that it would be a gamble. It might work with one of my pups but on the other hand it might not. I told them that sometimes the DA or AA, (animal aggresion) doesn't show for 9-24 months. I also said some dogs live in perfect harmony but there was no guarantee. I told them, (MY OPINION) these were not dogs for dog parks and petsmart, and they wanted a dog that they could do this with. I said it may work but then again it may not. In the end the guy thanked me and told me that he was glad to have learned this now and not later as he gets very attached to his dogs and would hate to find this out later. He said he was just going to get another breed and I told him I was glad. I would much rather tell him now than for him to find out the hard way later. I told him that he could get a pup from us and it be the best family dog and animal friendly dog he ever owned, but on the other hand it might be a dog that could not interact with his chickens, ducks, dogs and cats.

So he shook my hand, I shook his, he told me what had some beautiful dogs, I thanked him and we both left happy. This breeds just not for everyone.

I want people to get a dog from me and be happy about it, then they tell others.

I dont want people to get a dog from me and not be happy because its not what they thought it would be, then they tell others!!

Credit goes to both sides in this scenario. It's good to see people who can be honest about the breed and its shortcomings. And at the same time, its good to see a potential owner opening their mind to the idea that their previous notions might be wrong. Nice.

that was a great thing you did! i dont think people understand how much drive and energy/aggression a working/gamebred dog can have. i had a apbt named tess when i was younger that chewed her way through a wooden door. she put me through hell, she was so destructive, but i loved her none the less and miss her still.
