Pit Bull Stamp by Daughter-Of-Wolves Pit Bull Stamp by Daughter-Of-Wolves
I know it's a cheapish, simple thing.

And I know I said I wouldn't do stamps.

But here's what happened.

I was walking Drake a few days ago and some woman saw him and said "He's so cute!" She asked me how old he was and stuff like that, and finally said what a cute chocolate lab Drake is....:icondafuckplz:

I told her he was a red nosed pit, not a lab.

This woman flipped, and said that such an ugly, cruel breed shouldn't exist, that they should all be put down.

This is what I told her.

What did she say to that? I would have probably said something similar if somebody said that about my Pit Bull mix, Sven.

All the pit bulls that I have ever met have tried to kill me with undeniable love and affection.

I think this may grow into a contributing factor for the revolution to change the view of pitbulls from illegal dog fight breeds to loving family members. Keep up the good work, hun!

I'm a dog lover and I'm really tired of how people hate pit bulls. It all depends on how they were treated, not on their breed!

a large dog can be a playfull yet big puppy and get hyper and give a love nip, then the breed is baned, a small dog attacks a person and people make a fuss to dress it in pink fluff cloths and shoes!
people piss me off

Exactly!

Pits were used in Victorian England to guard the nursery and act as Nanny Dogs, in fact pits were the first Nanny Dogs used.

APBTs have an 86.8% passing rate in the ATTS database.
Chihuahuas have a 68.3% pass rate
yet there are no BSLs against the little chew toy yappers...

First off, where are these said "unbiased" resources of yours claiming that pit bulls were the "nanny dogs" of the early 1900s? Along with Sassawj, I also see nothing other than claims to this title. Can you provide proof of these claims? Actual, physical proof, as in a document, news article, or otherwise from those times that labels these dogs as a "nanny dog"? I certainly couldn't. By the way, I speak not of images depicting pit bulls standing with kids. I can search google and come up with thousands more of those that include breeds other than the pit bull. Pictures mean only that people had a picture taken with their dog.

These dogs CAN make great family pets. That is a fact. As can any other breed out there given the proper handling and socialization. Heck, even Siberian Huskies can be trained as guard dogs, despite being labeled as the one of the worst guard dog breeds because of their very sociable personalities. Oh look, another breed misconception!

And actually, you can breed aggression. Check it: [link] . And if you can't breed for violence, then why do some breeds of dog make for better fighter dogs? Why do some breeds make for better guard dogs? Why do many, many, many documents list what particular personality traits reside in a certain breed of dog?

This particular breed, or breeds, have a very negative stigmatism attached to them today for a reason: because of irresponsible owners. Yes, just as you said, it is irresponsible owners that cause these beautiful and wonderful dogs to be seen in a completely negative light by people. Yes, irresponsible owners attain this breed because of its reputation, and they breed or raise these dogs for that reputation. Yes, there are irresponsible owners who get these dogs and stick them out in their backyard on a chain, perfectly accessible to the idiot children who throw rocks at them and then get bit for it. Yes, there are irresponsible owners that train their dogs to attack others, be it out of fun or protection or whatever. But please keep in mind that a lot of this stigmatism comes from irresponsible owners who get these dogs for all the wrong reasons, among them is the idea that these dogs are the perfect family dog, that so many people talk these dogs up day and night. The reality is, though, just like any other breed out there, this dog is not for everyone. This is a breed that does require more work than other breeds. They do have that degree of aggression towards other animals (Siberian Huskies are predisposed to a very high prey drive. Pit bulls are even more so). They do develop separation anxiety very easily. They are a dog that needs a lot of socialization, exercise, training, attention, etc.

So in other words, what pit bull advocates should be preaching is that no one buy this breed without doing their research. For people to seek out reputable breeders who are going to make sure people know what they're doing with the breed. For people to not get these dogs on a whim. For people to do the proper training and socialization with these dogs. For people to get these dogs for reasons other than their reputation, be it good or bad. People like Sassawj, and the person who created the blog in which she has attained her resources from, are not pit bull haters. These are people looking to educate the general public about misconceptions that are hurting the breed, including these lies and deceptions about "nanny dogs" and the ATTS and other such nonsense. Such things only hurt the breed by giving people a false image of a dog that is otherwise great in the RIGHT hands.

By the way, a lot of the negative stigmatism surrounding small dogs is also created by the owners. It's called "small dog syndrome." This happens when people allow their small dogs to get away with things that large dogs would never be allowed to get away with because their size makes it either inconvenient or dangerous. And on the note of small dogs, many of them were actually bred for a reason other than companionship. Dachshunds were actually bred as hunting dogs. Corgis were, and still are, bred as herding dogs. Beagles were/are also hunting dogs. Yorkshire Terriers were bred to catch rats in clothing mills.

You do seem to have a fair amount of knowledge and passion for this breed. However, I do implore that you not give false information about the breed that exacerbates otherwise false claims, because if you ant people to appreciate the breed for what it is, you don't want them thinking that this breed is something that it's not.

I am not close minded. And if you read the post I said Pits were...

as in short for pit bull. There is no such breed as a Pit Bull, it is a blanket term that applies to APBTs ASTs and SBTs.

Dogs can't be bred for violence. That is why so many dogs are drowned by dog fighters, because you can't breed a dog to be violent and the majority of dogs will not fight other dogs unprovoked.

APBTs can attribute their reputation to irresponsible owners, and media bias. And the sites you posted links to are focusing on negative bias.

I created this stamp because there are people who are stereotyped unjustly toward APBTs ASTs and SBTs, and I have had experience with my own dog.

it is rather sad that dogs bred to protect and help people are the ones that people hate the most, yet the dogs who didn't really have a reason to come about other then be cute are spoiled and cooed over.
my cousins pit/rottie cross is better behaved then my friends chihuahua! doesn't that say something!

If you do. It is essensial to get them as pups. And Do NOT spoil it! They are headstrong, if you aren't firm until they are trained, they will walk all over you.

But they are the most loving, dogs you could ask for.

But they are over populated, so get a rescue. Don't encourage breeding. It's free to get them fixed in the US due to over population.

really, free in the US? i never knew that, cool, i wish it were like that in Canada!
i don't spoil my dogs, our female is a VERY headstrong gal also. but even with the extra effort, it is so worth it all.
anyway, you have a lovely dog and are very lucky.

Thanks. As a pit puppy parent I know that she won't be the last person to have such a misinformed close minded view.

Problem is, most critical and fatal dog bites come from common family breeds like goldens and german shepards, but do to social stigma, those don't make the evening news, just the ones involving APBTs and AMSTAFFs.
