How did the Pit bull Breed Develop?

Category : Pitbulls

If you are a pit bull parent or considering getting one of these popular pets, you may have done some research on how the pit bull breed developed.

In which case, you may be interested to know that pit bulls are in fact a mixed breed, with different genetics, features and behaviours. American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are all referred to as pit bulls or bullies. These dogs have similar physical features, such as square shaped heads and bulky bodies – though they are not exactly alike in appearance or DNA.

 What were they bred for?

The cross breeding of bull-baiting dogs and terriers resulted in the Pit bull – a dog bred for fighting. Accordingly, these dogs had the agility of a terrier and the strength of a bull dog. Thankfully, the cruel blood sport of dog fighting has now been banned. Thereafter, pit bulls became catch dogs, hunting and shepherding livestock for their owners. Pit bulls also became popular family pets as they are very good with children, making for great protectors.

Why do they have a bad rap?

Sadly, illegal dog fighting remains rife. As a result of their reputation as fighters, which of course humans are to blame for; these loving, loyal dogs have gotten a bad rap. But, what we don’t realise is that a dog’s nature is determined by how we treat the dog. If you treat your pit bull badly, it may very well become vicious and untrusting. What many don’t know is that pit bulls were actually selectively bred not to bite humans.

It may be their history and the fighting they were bred for that has created the false impression that pit bulls are blood thirsty monsters. But, as previously mentioned, a well brought up pit bull who is loved and cherished will become a loving, gentle dog in return.

Are Pit Bulls Dangerous?

Category : Pitbulls

hd-wallpapers-funny-pitbull-dog-wallpaper-funnycute-black-pet-1280x1024-wallpaperYou may be surprised to know just how many people in your life are proud pit bull parents. And what better way to find out if pit bulls are – as the media claims – dangerous, than to get a first-hand account?

I decided to do just that – instead of jumping aboard the ignorant pit bull haters’ team.  How can we damn a whole breed, when every dog clearly has its own unique personality? Any dog parent will strongly agree that each and every fur child is one of a kind.

How is this sort of prejudice any different from the countless biases and assumptions that have prevailed since the beginning of time?pit-bull_0

The pit bull parents I spoke to had nothing but love and good things to say about their furry friends – not a single account of viciousness. To answer the question: are pit bulls dangerous? I asked them what their canine kids were really like – bad reputation, sketchy statistics and media smear campaign aside.

You may consider the below qualities dangerous, but if you do – you’re likely a closet cat person…

  • Cuddle Monsters

Pit bulls are shameless snuggle addicts. So, if you feel threatened by oodles of affectionate, living, breathing hot water bottles and dogged nap buddies, pit bulls are probably not for you.


  • Hairy Stalkers

Are you petrified of having a second shadow, an incurably curious canine, and a firm furry friend by your side for life? How about never feeling the pang of loneliness ever again? If these qualities send a shiver down your spine, then you’re clearly not about the pit bull life.

  • Live Wires

Imagine having a live-in personal trainer, only a fun, goofy one with a drool-dripping grin and big, beautiful eyes that could win over the most stubborn of layabouts. This is exactly what you’ll get with a boundlessly motivated, impressively athletic pit bull.


  • Fiercely Loyal Furries

If you couldn’t think of anything worse than a fiercely loyal furry friend, who has your back 24/7, with a nose for the baddies and a bark that will send them running scared; then you’re not fit for the pit.

So, there you have it – straight from the mouths of pit bull parents!
