Pitbull Owners Survival Guide

« Fact Or Fiction? New Tools To Beat Breed Bias | Main | Merger Mania - Do The AKC & HSUS Have The Urge To Merge? »

March 04, 2007



I agree with you. They are WRONG. I am a caucasian woman with 3 kids and a fiance. we both have dedicated jobs, and we also have 3 pitbulls. as i told a friend, the day i am told i have to "sterilze" my 3 woderful pitbulls, i will fight it. and becuse of my legislative rights i will not let it happen to mine. and i am not a criminal, drug dealer, or dog fighter. so these dummies that classify pitbulls and their owners are pittiful ignorant fools whose mama's are ignorant also for raising them so. thank you for allowing me to speak my piece. i wish more people would fight for them.


this website is ok it could be better but aleast some bodies speakin there mind,pitbulls are damn good dogs and so is any other dog, people get dogs as a pet and to protect their home not because your a durg dealer, crackhaed,criminal,gangmember, ect. Its stupid if u gonna ban pitbulls u should ban every other dog too, and it aint fair if u gotta a pitbull and u treatin it right and the HSUS take it, it aint right

Caitlin/ pitbull mommy

OK I know that pittbulls have a bad name but this website is shit.. Its not the breed its the damn deed.. i cant belive that someone would acually make a web page like this. Pitbulls and any other dog are like people. Pitbulls are loyal dogs they do anything for there owners. i have one myslef. I am in a organation against fighting pittbulls and animal cruelty. It people like you who made people so affraid of them.. 2 people out of the whole world have been killed by pitbulls. How many people have killed them selves by ciggaretts, or guns, or drugs? Millions. I dont see websites for those kinds of things.. you should be a ashamed of yourself and hated for this i know i hate you right now.. Your wrong and sick in the head. I have three kids, four dogs My pitt loves people and other animals. I have met many pitts that love people and animals. Mabe you need to take the time and acually look up facts about pittbulls befor you start running off at the mouth about them. Hows that for support? I think the people who fight pitt should be punished not the dog. its not the dogs fault that you have some sick twisted asswholes in this world. You need to rethink what you do. How would you like it if someone walts in your world and killed your family or you kids and laughed about it and got excited? I dont think youd like it very much. I am apauled at this website and i hope people read this and follow me to the right road. This web page needs to be deleted if not I hope nothing good comes to you!!!!!


"I have to imagine if they are involved with an ILLEGAL sport, they wont care much if their dog is illegal. This will only have a negative impact on responsible owners."

Bingo, you have just summed up BSL and why it's a complete failure.

Oh, and they are bringing in breeds that are traditional fighting dogs in countries where it is legal - and they don't look at all like the breeds you mention. Surprise, everybody!

It is specious reasoning in the extreme to believe that because dogs may be owned by criminals, that the dogs are the problem and that elminating them will solve that problem.

Also, 'pit bulls' (by which I mean all the breeds and mutts that are called 'pit bulls' by the ignorant) are not the way they are portrayed by the media. There are many reasons for this, not least of which is the intense repeat reporting of items featuring 'pit bulls' either correctly or mistakenly. You may see 50 or more reports of a 'pit bull' incident however minor, leading people who don't study the issue to believe there have been 50 attacks in a week. That's just one example.

There is NO breed or shape of dog that is any more or less dangerous than any other - that is what is supported by the evidence.

Most people will get dogs from their area, usually mongrels. The most popular shape of dog in the US, purebred and mixed, is hands-down the bull and terrier type. There are an average of 50% more purebred APBTs (just one breed) registered annually in the US than the next most popular breed, the Labrador retriever.

Given this popularity, it is inevitable that there will be inexperienced owners with unrealistic expectations ie, more dogs, more people, more bites. Popularity is very bad for a breed or type for that reason.

Surprisingly, though, all the breeds, lookalike breeds and mixes lumped into the 'pit bull' category are actually under-represented in bite databases.

Go figure.


While I agree HSUS is full of shit when they say that required sterilization of all pit bulls is not as bad as "traditional" bsl. You keep accusing them of saying all pit bull owners are criminals when I don't see them saying that anywhere. They said they are popular with criminals, (because of their reputation), isn't that true? Isn't it irresponsible owners who caused this whole problem in the first place. If you say all pit bull owners are decent law abiding citizens then that would definitely make Pit Bulls out to be the unstable vicious dogs that the media portrays. I'd also like to add that HSUS is full of shit when they say it will "negatively impact those individuals who use Pit Bulls for fighting..." BULL SHIT. Even if it were true that all pit owners were criminals, they would just move on to the next breed of dog, a Tosa Inu, maybe a wolf hybrid. That is if they actually cared that owning an unneutered Pit Bull was against the law. I have to imagine if they are involved with an ILLEGAL sport, they wont care much if their dog is illegal. This will only have a negative impact on responsible owners.


They are not bad dogs if you treat them right. if you terrorize them of course they will be mean to you and this lady needs to stop back stabbing all of us who are trying to help these dogs get out of trouble and stop them from being banned.

i luv pit bulls fuk who ever trying to get reads of them

Sandra Werner

I believe 100 percent in EQUAL RIGHTS FOR PITBULLS. I've had three and I love them all too much. What I would like to say is that, as much as I love them, have had them professionally trained, and NEVER encouraged any type of agression - my mother&daughter pits who live w/me have broken my heart and tried to kill eachother more than once. They've been separated for five years because of the traumatic things they have done to eachother. I brought a little frenchie (male) into the home so both girls could have someone to play with while they were "out" and after four months of mothering, snuggling and playing. . . my mother dog(8 yrs old) who's always loved cats, lizards, etc. killed my frenchie over one piece of kibble.
I don't think other breeds are exept from this behavior. I do think that pits have the capacity to do life-ending damage to another dog in a fraction of the time of other dogs.
I fell in love w/the breed and did much research, but nothing prepared me for what has happened in my family. S. WERNER

EDITOR"S NOTE: Dear Sandra - I am sorry to hear about your Frenchie. You are correct - Dog-n-Dog aggression is not uncommon. Any of hte bully breeds may be dog aggressive or have a high prey drive. Remember - ANY large dog has the capacity to hurt or kill smaller dogs, not just pitbulls. Dog owners need to be aware and understand this, and never leave dog-aggressive dogs alone with other dogs, and crate them for safety while you are at work. I am glad you are a fan of the breed.

HSUS and PETA frankly are very screwed up. They wouldn't know what the right to do would be unless it bit them in the butt. Maybe all HSUS proponents should be sterilized so we can slowly reduce them to extinction.


I am not a drug dealer (don't even do drugs, not a convict (never been arrested, and certainly not a gang banger (that scares me! I am a professional teacher with a Master's Degree in Education, single woman and just simply love dogs. I am educated, not looking for a status symbol from a dog. My pit bull is my best friend and is 5 years old. I have raised her from 11 weeks and I can't imagine not having her in my life. I spayed her at my choice but I certainly do not agree with mandatory sterilization! I have never met a mean Pit Bull!


My last comment sounded a bit egocentric.

By 'I'm fighting BSL' and 'to the best of my ability', I meant that there is a small hard core group of people across the continent who are fully engaged in the battle.

The 'I' should have been 'we'.

Sorry about that, DP and others!!!


HSUS, according to a friend of mine, is actually responsible for cruelty to dogs. Apparently, over a decade ago the last time they were trying to stop dogfighting, they released statements and literature describing how fighting dogs were treated.

Of course, it was all bulls**t, they were probably strung along by some kid playing with their heads.

Problem was, the morons who get a kick out of watching animals fight but have no love for dogs followed HSUS's recipe and started abusing their dogs. Vicious circle.

Nice work, guys.

The 'dog overpopulation' meme got old with me a long time ago. I don't believe it. Prove it.

There are more people now, folks, so there are more dogs. There will, unfortunately, always be dogs looking for new homes, it's a sad fact of life. Go to your shelter and take a look. Most of the dogs around here, SW Ontario, are 8 - 10-month old male pups who were cute when tiny and were mishandled and encouraged to do stupid things. Suddenly, they are large bundles of energy who are knocking the kids over, biting the leash, counter-cruising, etc, so it's off to the shelter.

Even some 'pit bull' rescues support s/n of 'pit bulls', playing right into the hands of the AR hypocrites.

'Pit bull' bans are supported as the first step down the road to the elimination of pet dogs.

I wish more people could see it.

By the way, if 'pit bulls' are the most popular dog in the US (and they are, both purebred and mutts, by a huge margin), then are they saying that this demographic is composed of bottom feeding criminals?

Sounds like a serious social problem, in that case. Dogs are irrelevant.

Since everyone knows that criminals are a tiny minority, I fail to see what difference the shape of their dog makes. They're going to be lowlives whether they own dogs or not.

I just wish all the dog owners, whether they drive a Rolls and keep fancy show dogs or take the bus and own a scruffy little mutt, would stand up and make some noise.

It's getting lonely out here and if the AR whackjobs have their way, it's going to get a lot lonelier. There won't be any dogs, folks. I firmly believe that, which is why I'm fighting BSL to the best of my ability.

Just hope 'the best of my ability' is good enough.


They say that pit bulls are likely the mos popular breed of dog in the United States and then say it is a problem that they are popular with criminals.

Isn't it to be expected that large numbers of criminals would own the most popular breed of dog in the United States?

Editor's Note: What if Al Gore & other environmentalists consistently & repeatedly made statements that gas guzzling Hummers were driven by gang members, to the point wehre most members of the public viewed anyone with a Hummer as a criminal.

Would you expect the government to then enact a laws that restrict people from owning Hummbers or ban Hummers?

And then - would you pull over the drivers of those Hummers, especially if they are black, Hispanics, etc.?


HSUS and all their acolytes in the pit bull rescue world... throwing away the rights of people to choose whether or not to s/n their pets... and, dare we suggest, risking the health of their dogs (at risk from consequences of early s/n), all in the name of "helping" the breed.

Because nothing is more important than reducing the numbers of pit bulls in shelters..

Destroying the village in order to save it.
