It's a shame that the pit bull has such a bad rep! And its because of these foolish people is why the breed is band over here in the uk. I have friends that have pits and are a bit reluctant to take them to the vets in fear of them being reported and there dogs being put to sleep. I have a UK staffi a AM staff & a colli cross samoyed. They all get along with pits and other dogs. I found out that any bull and terrier breed I.E Staffordshire bull terrier, English bull terrier & Am Staffs. If not registered are still classed as pit bulls and are liable to be put dawn! Ok I understand that the UK staffi was the original pit bull dog apart
for the old English bull dog (now extinct) from which it came. But just because some may not be registered is no reason to KILL them or any bull & terrier breed. What if the dog is in a loving home & does no wrong? It's the dammmmm owners not the dog! What's the difference between pedophiles & pit bulls? Pedophiles have no master!!!

I'm not a supporter of dog fighting and think it's cruel and abusive...especially when dogs that don't WANT to fight are MADE to by the idiots feeding them gunpowder and rubbing cocaine on their nose....then letting the losing dog (which are both in such a case) bleed out and die or worse, set on fire, electrocuted, etc.
The other side of the coin here is that all those qualities that make American Pit Bull Terriers so loving, loyal, dedicated, and non human-aggressive are the result of the breed being designed and bred for countless generations for the purpose of fighting.(I leave out Am Staffs/staffs as I do not consider them worthy of the true pit bull name) First as bull/bear baiters then on to each other. And if it wasn't for the RESPONSIBLE, TRUE, DEDICATED DOG MEN that originated the breeds foundation and development, culling out any sign of aggression to people for hundreds of years then we would not have the breed we love today. Fighting is in their nature, their bloodlines, you cannot hold a gun to a dogs head and say fight....however this aggression to other dogs/animals can 99% of the time be eliminated with proper socialization as puppies or you'll just have a sweet dog that will lick a kitten that was born from a game bred line of fighting dogs, which was the case for me.
The blame should go to the degenerates that lock their dogs up away from normal social contact, use drugs to make their dogs wild/crazy (not true fighters), and think its funny and "god training" to let their pits rip up kittens and strays. This goes further to the "breeders" that encourage aggression in there pups even towards people....having the stereotypical view that if i have a mean growling pit bull it makes you tuff. Well I hope at least a few of those guys get to feel what happens when you raise and encourage people aggressive pit bulls after they are missing a few limbs from their own creations.
Anyone interested in the true history of the pit bull and its evolution as the greatest breed of dog check out the several books put out by Richard Stratton that go into detail about what is "game" in pit bull terms and why these dogs bred to fight without ever quiting turned into Man's best friend.

People that abuse pits disgust me, If I catch a dog fighting ring I will burn their spot down with them in it. I am sorry for talking violent, but I adore my pit and find it difficult to imagine harming such a loving animal. Besides those type of sick people will burn in hell anyway, why not send them there early?

Once again great hub. I would really like to see these documentaries, I'll have to check them out.
micheal on April 10, 2009:
i have a pit . but would never have a fighting pit . its not the breed that needs to be extinct its the owners of the dog . Most of the young hoodies and drug dealers have them to make the look hard . Then there is the dog fighting men who make money out of this So called Sport . I say jail them all and then un ban the breed as in this country the pit bull terriers are banned . These dogs are as loving as a child
mary on May 26, 2008:
