APBTs



Both Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C. are seeking new proposals to ban "pit bulls". No importation, sale, or possession of pit bulls in Washington, D.C.n Baltimore will be allowed henceforth. The reason being a man murdered a pit bull owner who refused to fight his dog and in the Baltimore City, a pit bull attacked a 7 year old girl. Both the news was quite nerve-racking. But it's quite unfortunate for these dogs who once used to be the pride of America are now being hunted n killed unconditionally. One of the most obvious reasons being that originally they were raised as fighting dogs 'coz of their aggressive, outrageous nature. but given a proper "obedience training", they can turn out to be an affectionate companion and a lovely pet!

It was one of the most popular breeds, highly prized by a wide variety of people. The Pit Bull was used to represent the US in WW1 artwork. Popular companies like RCA and the Buster Brown Shoe Company used the breed as their mascots. A Pit Bull named Petie starred in the popular children's television series, Our Gang; a Pit Bull mix named Stubby became a decorated WW1 hero. Also, Laura Ingalls Wilder of the popular Little House books owned a working Pit Bulldog named Jack. Famous individuals like Theodore Roosevelt and Helen Keller owned this breed too! It was during this time that the Pit Bull truly became America's sweetheart; admired, respected and loved by everyone. The sly smile, those determined eyes, and that eager to please attitude have evoked both rational and irrational human emotions. By no means are this dogs people-haters or people-eaters. Their natural aggressive tendencies towards other dogs have earned them a bad name. However if they are properly socialized, they will not even be aggressive to them. Pit bulls are truly quality companions for quality owners only! They can turn out to be extremely loyal, clownish, good-natured and an affectionate animal; always ready to please the master. However, as with any breed, they shouldn't be left alone with unfamiliar children.

They are also not a good choice for a novice dog owner as inexperienced owners tend to find them to be too much to handle. APBTs often display some level of dog aggression, especially towards strange dogs of the same sex or level of assertiveness. We should remember their "fighting" character and even APBTs that were previously sociable may develop dog aggression as they mature. It's advisable for an APBT owner not to let their dog interact with strange dogs unsupervised.

And, it's absolutely necessary to adopt an APBT puppy, from a breeder who has puppies with good temperament and not with aggressive tendencies towards other dogs or humans. Hence, this breed of dog does not have natural watch dog tendencies. If not trained to be wary or bark at intruders, they would sooner lick a burglar to death than bite or attack. Unfortunately, this breed is also often the most common target of dog abuse in urban areas and are often found beaten, starved, burned, and mistreated to make them particularly aggressive. Some even choose to promote the fighting instinct in the breed, giving it a bad name! So, we must all look at them from a humanitarian ground and remember those American pit bulls who 've served our nation in a brave way! They stands as a symbol of power, passion and undying willingness.
