I got into a conversation today with 2 of my new neighbors.

They told me they bred American Bullies. And they proceeded to tell me about how pits have lock jaw.

Then when they noticed Bruno's leg allergies,they were telling me how I could get motor oil,to pour on them,and it would heal that right up.

I was just like..."wow Really?" I had to end my conversation with them then.

I dunno if it was the alcohol effecting their brain,or if they really were that stupid.:hammer:

OH! And they told me how to tell the difference between a pure pit and a mix. Pure pits roll their tongues when they pant.

Wow, learn something new EVERY DAY! :(

I've heard the motor oil thing before and saw it done. I didn't see the results. People told me to do that to Helena, I told them they were idiots.

Interesting that they apparently knew enough to call their dogs bullies but still believe the locking jaws story.

The motor oil thing is an old timer's remedy for fleas and ticks but I've never heard of it for allergies.

They own American Bull dogs. I forgot to mention that.
They're calling them bullies. They're saying it's some "new" breed of Bully. I dunno they're BYB so I just let it run in one ear and out the other.

Ohhhh, the infamous "lock jaw" :roll:
Congratulations, your neighbors have won the King Idiot Award! :clap:

But seriously... Someone mentioned motor oil as treatment for mange when I was a teenager. That struck me as odd. Never thought about it again til just now, lol.

I knew someone like that where I worked. She told me if I kept holding my puppy he would get worms. And that if I fed him cayenne pepper it would make him mean. And if I really wanted his coat shiny, to put raw egg with his dry food. I told her if she fed her dogs good enough food to begin with, they would already have shiny coats.

That's what I was thinking....

That is confusing. Do you know for a fact they are Am Bulldogs? You seem to have quite the run ins with BYB...

Yes i know they are American bulldogs,I have seen one before.(Though it could be a mix of some sort)

Unfortunately my area is not the greatest,and BYB are everywhere. Even the pet store near my work sells pups from them.

HAHA! I love stupid people, they make my day so interesting :)

The motor oil thing is...outdated.. now there are numbers of other (better) products or what have you.
Teaspoon of oil to fight a cold, helps with skin issues and what not, lots of people have their own "ideas" .. Gunpowder in a wound :)

No one can deny though some of the "old school" remedies work!!

I've been advised to use motor oil for hot spots by a couple of people. I know that the Bedouins use it on Camels.
I use Neosporin.

Well i can certainly believe people are that stupid. I have been told recently that because one of my dogs is black that means hes more vicious because he can blend in at night time and you wouldn't expect an attack until its too late.

Yep. lol

Hey, we live in the spoiled rotton age of America, where people sit back and enjoy their creature comforts...I wish there were a time machine to go back, let's say, 75 years, where "pit bully's, pet bulls, pit mutts, ect." didn't exist!!! And all the poor health, mental retardation, and manbiters were at an all time low, since the dog owners of those days ended the miserable lives of those poor quality mutts, with an everlasting dirt nap, to prevent those disgraceful dogs from reproducing....

I'll say there's more than alcohal effecting the brains of people these days...:mad: These days, instead of taking off the gloves and handling problems face to face, today's cowards backstab, cheat, lie and run to the law with the "touch me I'll sue," mentality. LOL. What a joke!

So for anyone new to the breed, if you have to ever ask "what breed is this?" you can know you do not have an APBT. If you don't know jack about the breed, go get some books, old and new, and read and learn.

Can anyone be so stupid? Yes, in America they can...the stupidest thing of all, is also the saddest thing: People don't like to hear the truth and the facts of things, but would rather rely upon vain imaginations and fantasies, than listen to the cold hard facts of life. JMO! Lies and slander and mis-information are all acceptable, but the truth is the one right that faces hostility, and is hated most by the so-called lovers of "FREEDOM OF SPEECH."
