That is a novice (heck, lower than a novice, for that matter) word used by those who know nothing.
If you ever want a REAL American (pit) Bull Terrier
first look for older books on the breed.
Bullies are not, nor ever will be, Pit Dogs. They would be in total exhaustion in under ten minutes.
is a breed that goes for hours...
Next, when you get a basis of what an ApBT
is NOT, start looking for breeders who have bred them for years, and have all the Pedigree's, and Titles of their dogs.
Get references. View pics of other customers' dogs.
(By "is NOT" I mean don't listen to the "public" opinion, or from those with fakes...oversized yard sh**ers, unregestered dogs. Buy a champion blood dog and you'll know what I mean. BIG difference!)
But in general, avoid anyone who calls their dogs "pits," "pitbulls," "pitties," ect.
is only known as "bulldog," "Pit Dog," or "Game Dog."
And as for the ApBT
"types," they only differ in their bloodlines.
There is a separate strain of ApBT
known as the Old Family Red Nose.
They are separate only for their color and the blood that only comes in that color.
Within this strain are the various bloodlines of the OFRN.
Okay, i see you say these things often in your posts about how if the person wants a "real American Pit Bull Terrier" and how they were cheated.
Now, i do agree with your logic and your generalized views on what is, isn't, however do you honestly think everyone needs an APBT
or for that matter can handle a dog with any amount of "actual" drive?
I know the answer as i'm sure you know the answer, which is the main problem i have with you going the route you do in explanations to people on the subject of their dogs.
The only real answer is to go back to feeding an animal you have use for, breeding true to the animal vs. your pockets; which leads to the only real question of what use do you have for the animal? When discussing such matters it makes more sense to understand what the person is looking for out of an animal vs. automatically assuming they not only want a "real American Pit Bull Terrier" as not many truly understand what they are anymore, as well as understanding what is required to properly care of which included is purpose.
If every Joe Schmo had an APBT
, this would not cure anything and only amount to far higher percentages of "attacks" reported as the lack of control and understanding required to handle a Bulldog. (or any breed of dog of which is bred down from traditional stock and not show quality/pet quality)
Otherwise, i do agree that people should do their research more in depth rather than just a few internet websites or forums or media out lets or a few people around the neighborhood.
Very few own an APBT
in traditional forum, very few own a high end Bulldog put to use down from traditional stock.. Even fewer, comparing to the masses of whom needs or has use for such hounds.
