    i have been a lot of the stories in the history sections and have come across many stories where handlers and refs were bitten atleast once. This is quite troubling to me because biters were not to be allowed to produce. I just recently read about virgil biting hos owner or refferee im not sure. I was wondering if anyone had anymore in formation on why or if these dogs were bred

    While there were many men that beleived that the man biting bulldog was taboo...there were others like that beleived the upside of some individuals abilities over shadowed man biting tendencies. Some stories are internet talk, and some dogs did bite people. You may have read this already, but here's a perspective by a good dogman by the name of Gary Hammonds...

    also yes Gr CH Zebo ROM, GR CH Virgil ROM , and Bullyson all have reproduced many, many times. Furthermore, in today's legal/societal setting there is very little leeway for a man biting bulldog. Not only is the breed in general not for everyone, but furthermore the ones that would bite with provocation should be destroyed IMO.

    The history of pit bulls is full of people who were trying to breed a winning dog.
    If a man had a winner he didn't worry about it being a man biter. He didn't breed the dog for biting people.
    He bred a dog for their skills. Owners back in history knew how to handle the dogs.
    Now days there isn't many dogs bred for the qualities the breed was known for. Most people have no idea how to handle a dog that bites, especially one with the traits of the pit bull. Many people own and breed pit bulls that should be breeding beagles.
