My trusted friends and neighbours know she is an a.p.b.t, and most of the neighbourhood have heard she is a 'pitbull'.
Jaz is always around people and kids and she loves the attention she gets, and loves to play, and to be honest, all my friends and neighbours have changed their opinion about the breed because they have realised that propaganda and hype was used to give the breed a bad name and later led to banning this breed over here.

When i'm confronted while dog walking by starngers, i say she is an irish staffy.......as you never know, I could be talking to an off duty policeman
I love my Jaz and will never risk the chance of her being taken away from me, so as much as i'd like to educate as many people as I can, I also have to be very carefull.

Ya thats unfortunate, they recently lifted all the BSL regulations around here so that isnt a fear a have to face.

Mikado I know how you feel, even alot of my friends cant picture owning a dog for anything other then hunting bird so a pit bull was an odd purchase to begin with. One of my friends came over to my house the other week to see him and he looks at me and goes wow.. hes kind of a boring puppy he just chills out. We took him outside and instantly he was blasting around the yard chasing down fallen apples.

I explained that this is one reason I love the breed, he isnt full of nervous destructive almost obsessive energy that you see in a lot of hunting dogs he knows when its time to play and when its time to just chew on his bone. It's funny though I hear them asking me now to bring him over and let him play with their dogs or asking how he is.

I tell people she is a APBT.And luckily the only place I've had a bad experience was at the vets office.Went in there one day and all the other dog owners automatically thought that my dog was going to attack their dogs.They all moved their dogs to the other side of the room,until they saw my son playing with her and climbing all over her.She was wagging her tail and licking him the whole time.Then only half of them stayed on the other side of the room.Of course all the other parents that had their kids with them still wouldn't go nowhere near us.

I always say they are American Pit Bull Terrier.

Many old timers and other who have been around the breed just flat out call APBTs Bull dogs.

Only in recent years of the stupid media hype has pit bull meant dogs other than the APBT. So, I don't have a problem with saying pit bull or pits either but only will use those slang terms to people who seem to already know what they are like when we talk on the forums.

So there are nick names for the breed. Not a big deal to me. However when someone has no idea what breed they are I make sure to use the full breed name.

It does annoy me when people post and can't even spell the names though and but things like
pitt bull, pitbull, pitts etc...

What always bugs me , is when someone asks , What breed?", and then say something idiotic like, "Oh I have one at home just like yours!"

How stupid can you be if you have one then why would you ask what breed mine is???? This has happened more than one time.

Im from Chitown and a lot of " girls" own pits up here { I'm 51 !!} Im asked all the time what type of dog it is my answer is always the same " Pit" . I have a T-shirt from cafepress that says " Its a pitbull" . I tend to be rather blunt when asked any questions - about dogs , politics , sports- so I cant be missunderstood. Due to the sheer volume of APBT in Chicago seeing them around is fairly common.

I reply "rescue" no matter which of my dogs I have. I am lucky to have some history on them but I don't have peds so the truth is, I can only guess. I have 2 Rotts that are not registered, 2 brothers that are 1/2 AM Foxhound and 1/2 APBT, 2 AmStaffs and a Catahoula. None were in a good situation and are powerful, STUBBORN breeds. I try to be honest and forthright and explain that all of the hype about any breed is due to poor ownership and explain how hard-headed my own dogs are and how hard we work with them to help them be their best.

But sometimes, I can't help myself and answer the most ridiculous breed I can think of at that moment if the people are annoying such as Afgan, Poodle, Pomeranian (especially with the 100 lb Rott!! LOL) or make up something like Boogaroo Mountain Terrier, Scooby Foxweiler......Sometimes, I have to make myself laugh or the haters get to me!

My dogs are friendly and so are a majority of the pit bulls they'll run into... There's a few bad seeds in every breed!
Well said! Mind if I borrow your response?

I just thought of a something else to say to people, 'have you seen the little rascals' or 'Homeward Bound'? He's the same kind of dog as you'd see in those movies

I call them the breed name and smile and walk away.
After 18+ years of trying to defend the bully breeds and yet seeing ore dog bits and more breeding....i quit talking.
I just smile and wave.

I tell them American Pit Bull Terrier, and most of the time these uneducated ducktards are like"oh so she's a Terrier, not like those mean Pit Bulls right?"then my response is something like"NO, that's exactly what she is, just not mean, as most of them aren't stop listening to the media and you might learn something. These dogs were called the nanny dog in WW1 and WW2, um hello? maybe that was for a good reason. Even the beloved little rascals tv show had a APBT as well as past presidents. Get your facts right before you step to me with your mug twisted sideways before i smack it straight." As you can probably tell I'm a little blunt and can't/won't hold back my thoughts regarding this breed.
