The Pitbull has gone under a lot of scrutiny this past decade. There has been an uproar of Breed specific Legislation (to read more on BSL laws visit here), mostly directed towards the Pitbull, and pit mixes. As a reader you must be asking yourself why? As humans, we have a tendency to find scapegoats for our problems. To say a dog’s behavior is in correlation with an owner’s behavior is erratic for a portion of today’s society. As the famous quote from Cesar Millan says:

“In the 70s they blamed Dobermans, in the 80s they blamed German Shepherds, in the 90s they blamed Rottweilers. Now they blame the Pit Bull. When will they blame the humans?”

It’s not a specific breed that is the problem, it’s the humans. It’s how we raise them. The best way to put this in perspective is to consider what makes a child a good student in school or nothing but a problem growing up? Most people, if asked this, would say it’s their parents. After many years of being involved with the pitbull breed, I would also say this is the biggest factor of the behavior of dogs and how they act and socialize with other people and dogs.

The Lover

There has been a lot of negativity surrounding this breed, while at the same time there is a gigantic fan base. Thousands upon thousands of individuals dedicate their life to either breeding or rescuing pitties. The pitbull movement brings in thousands of dollars in revenue and donations to help home, and support, these dogs., as well as to advocate the ending of all breed specific laws. The times are changing for this breed, day by day people’s attitudes are changing for the better.

The Fighter

Negativity is brought on from a variety of reasons. One of the pitbull’s most recognizable traits is the desire to please their owner. The problem is, you can either harness this trait for good, resulting in a very loving and caring dog, or you can use this desire to please  negatively. This is why the pitbull is such a popular candidate for the evil sport of dog fighting. On average, pitbulls are very athletic and muscular. This symbol of power is appealing to criminals, gangsters and other negative members of society. All this negativity surrounds such a powerful, loving and caring breed.

Conclusion

Despite all the negativity pitbulls have received for the past decade, people are becoming more open-minded and are beginning to see their real nature. They are accepting this wonderful breed for what it really is. Misconceptions are starting to diminish and every day the pitbull and related breeds are taking a step forward in a positive direction.

  1. I’m an animal lover, and agree that pitbulls can be great dogs. I lived with one for a year, and he was a really sweet dog, the only thing he would hurt were the squirrels. But, there is a very real flip side. Society didn’t draw a name out of the hat to decide which breed to discriminate against. There is a reason pitbulls have the reputation they do. While some, like Max, are very sweet, many others are not, and can be extremely dangerous. And not just a small % of the breed. If you watch the court shows on tv then you know they’re always trying cases where the defendant is being sued because their dog attacked the plaintiff or the plaintiff’s dog, often killing it. And the attacking dog is almost always a pitbull. And statistics tell us that over half the dog attacks in the US are from pitbulls. Out of the hundreds of breeds we have, over HALF are pitbulls. I even personally had a scary encounter with one a couple years ago. I was walking on the sidewalk in front of my apartment building. I looked over to a huge pitbull in the grass about 10 feet away from me, as soon as I looked at him he for absolutely no reason lunged at me. His owner quickly yanked back on his chain leash. Thankfully his owner was muscular and reacted quickly. Otherwise I very likely would have gone to the ER, if not be DEAD!! So I do not understand this naivety that pitbulls are not dangerous animals. Because of their muscular build, their lock jaw, their instinctive nature to just snap and attack, they have 100% earned their stereotype. And I agree there should be very strict laws against them in cities and other heavily populated areas. Because too many people are getting hurt and their pets getting killed because of this one breed!

  2. I have known a few pitpulls, and all of them are giant lapdogs who are just never ending fountains of love. They are so sweet and the only time I have been hurt by a pitbull is when one jumped off my lap (kicked their back leg into my stomach) so that they could go cuddle and love someone else!

  3. I honestly think pit bulls are some of the most adorable puppies and beautiful dogs. I agree, the owners (humans) are one of the biggest culprits in the discrimination against pit bulls these days. I’ve seen many pits who are extremely loving and kind!

    • I’m glad you had a chance to know and love a pitbull, Michelle. They really can be very sweet dogs and have gotten such a bad rap. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope to see you here again soon. Peace. 🙂

  4. “Experience A Loving Pitbull and Never Discriminate Again” dunno about that, tongue in cheek, I find most pitties are sweeties but have issues with majority of people.
