i added them as a friend...this is in their about me section for all those who care:
I am not pro BSL. I'M NOT spreading hate about the pitbull i just need to you realize that your pitbull is more likely to attack than my golden.I don't hate pitbulls. Pit bull enthusiasts seem to forget that raising a pit bull in a loving and caring environment doesn’t alter its genetics or background. Even if a pit bull is given a great deal of attention, it still holds onto its genetics. I’d like to add this. Pit bull enthusiasts accept posotive information about pit bulls without any trouble. When negative information regarding pit bulls in produced though, they need supportive details, statistics, sources, and similar things. Pit bull enthusiasts look for everything they can in order to prove that pit bulls are harmless. This is why they’ve accepted that old "pit bulls are only dog aggressive" bull. To me, this is a very funny statement. It makes me laugh. I actually used to believe that. After thinking a bite though, I noticed there was something wrong with it. I noticed that only fighting dogs such as pit bulls are supposedly dog aggressive. I realized that no one claimed that Scottish Deer simply wanted to hunt deer. I noticed that no one claimed that bear dogs only wanted to hunt bears. We don’t even know who developed that statement. We have no proof that varrifies it. We have no evidence that really supports it. Everyone accepts this information without thinking. We don’t even take a minute to look between the lines. Dogs bred to hunt deer won’t just try to hunt deer. Dogs bred to gaurd chickens won’t just try to gaurd chickens. And dogs bred to herd sheep won’t just try to herd sheep. So... why do we think that pit bulls only want to fight or be aggressive towards other dogs? Dogs bred for certain purposes don’t just focus on one particular species. A dog bred to run down game will run after an moving object, whether it’s living or not. A dog bred to herd sheep will herd anything, including humans, cats, and chickens. Pit bull enthusiasts claim that pit bulls are like other dogs, while supporting the fact that they’re only dog aggressive. They’re contradicting themselves. If you think about it, pit bulls are one of the only breeds that people claim focusses on a certain animal. This dog aggressive thing was obviouslly created in an attempt to save or redeam the pit bull. Pit bull enthusiasts say that I’m stereotyping. Well, if I am, so are they! If they go about claiming that pit bulls are just dog aggressive, they’re being stereotypical to some degree. They’re judging the breed. It’s a fact that pit bulls and other similar dogs bred to fight or gaurd are more likely to attack. Don’t tell me I’m stereotyping just because you dislike what I’m saying. I don’t agree with you, but I’m not going to tell you you’re being mean or that you’re incorrect. As I’ve explained, pit bulls are more likely to attack. Some pit bulls will be more aggressive than others, some less. It all depends on genetics Pitbulls, like many other dogs, were bred for a specific purpose. A pitbulls purpose was to entertian people. Theyre bred to battle other dogs and to bait bulls and even bears. They were bred to be aggressive, fearless, and tough. Through generations of pit fighting, pitbulls have developed a natural aggression. People claim that pitbulls are only dog aggressive, but I disagree with this. All dogs, including pitbulls, treat humans like other dogs. They use the same body language and communication to interact with humans that theyd use while interacting with other dogs. A dog whos submissive will expose his stomach, crawl on the ground, and lick his leader. Dogs do this to people. Dogs will not give you eye contact if youre more domiant than them, just like they do with other dogs. Extremely dominant dogs will bump against others who are of a lesser hierarchy and create stare downs. They dont just do this to other dogs They do it to the humans too. Because of this, whos to say that a dog wont bite a human out of dominance or submission? Dogs who are in a pack will get disciplined by their pack leaders. To dogs, humans are part of the pack, so isnt it possible that a dog more domiant than them would bite them to put them in their proper place? Because pitbulls are more "dog aggressive," I believe its more likely for them to attack people. So, what Im saying is that all dogs treat humans like their part of the packs. Like their dogs. They ineract with humans and other dogs using the same body language and communication. Because of this, dogs, including pitbulls, may bite humans to put them in their place or for other reasons. Because dog aggression is stronger in pitbulls, I think theyre probably more human aggressive as well. I think its important for all pitbull owners to realize what Ive stated above. I dislike how every one states that pitbulls arent more aggressive than other dogs when its incorrect. Aggression is encoded in their DNA. Aggression is natural in pitbulls. I simply believe that pitbull are more aggressive than other types or breeds of dogs. I do not support pitbulls being banned either. I just hate how every ones so ignorant when it comes to pitbulls. I cant stand these "blame the deed, not the breed" stuff! Yes with proper breeding, training, it can be a safe faimly pet. I end with this quote "a pitbull is mans best friend, but even a friend can turn on you"
Who I'd like to meet:
things i am sick of hearing - Pit bull owners who think their dogs are harmless. These people are simply stupid. Any dog is potentially dangerous. Although, some are more dangerous.
- People who think that only abused and mistreated pit bulls attack.
- People who think that pit bulls aren’t predictable. All dogs are unpredictable. No matter how well you know a dog, you can’t predict what it’ll do next.
- People who think every one’s out to get pit bulls for no reason at all. These people obviously know little about pit bulls. People don’t just target a dog because it attacks once. Labs have attacked on several ocassions, yet the media doesn’t target them. Pit bulls have been targeted for a reason.
- People who think that statistics are wrong because they don’t include the entire dog population. This doesn’t even matter. Statistics still show that certian dogs are more likely to attack.
- People who use the American Temperament Test Society’s temperament test to show how wonderful pit bulls are.
- People who think pit bulls are inocent because they’re ocassioanly not at the top of the dog attacks list
