    If you're looking for something in particular, there is absolutely nothing wrong with going to a responsible breeder.

    Especially with BTs who are so prone to health and temperament issues when poorly bred.

    exactly, sometimes with this breed you CANT go to a rescue. many rescues wont even allow you to adopt if you have cats or other small pets, some are poor with other dogs, some have severe health issues that, unless you are near a specialest dont even try to take the dog because youll end up screwing up its health worse.
    and some are no good with kids.

    if your not experienced (such as the OP) then to rescue or go to a poor breeder is a really risky choice.
     
  3. Alot of people get intrigued by the "rarity" (haha) of the breed, or the uniqueness. These guys (as fellow BT owners know) are ALOT of dog in a stout package. I do wish that folks would look past the novelty of owning one and do deeper research on all aspects of the breed.

    such as this family right here-did no research jsut seen a "funny looking dog" and bought it im sure.

    and the thing about this video that makes me angry is-THIS IS THE BREED!!! there is nothing abnormal about that Bull Terrier, i watched that video and was like "how can they be so angry at her? thats the breed" im not saying you have to put up with the naughty behavior-but that is how the breed is that is what they do if you dont train them from day one!
    those people are also LUCKY that that female dakota is so laid back and tolorant-many bull terriers will only take so much hitting before they retaliate, they are not a breed of dog who will put up with crap, while they are sweet and loyal-they are very human like in their emotions.

    you cant beat on them, and often times treats dont work-they are not a breed that WANTS to please you or make you happy, they want to make themselves happy and will basically give you the finger if you want them to do somthing useign a treat and they dont really really want to.

    heres another part of the video: [video=youtube;KoWeCueMKE4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoWeCueMKE4[/video]
    if you notice-victoria the trainer, doesnt even BOTHER trying to re-direct the dog while the other dog is present, because once they are focused its EXTREMLY difficult to break that.
    last night i had this happen to me
    [​IMG]

    while it doesnt look bad, it sure does hurt today and all of last night, its a single tooth puncture- from Cesar, he was NOT BEING AGGRESSIVE!!! this was MY fault.
    Cesar loves to play with giant balls and i had gotten him one from wal-mart to save as an outdoor toy this weekend, i woulnt let him have it, he seen it and focused onto it so strongly that when my mom tried shoving a piece of steak into his mouth he spit it out and did not move his head or eyes off that ball. I made the mistake of laughing instead of correcting him-edging him on to go even more nutso (huge mistake obviously) when i went to put the ball away in another room i wasnt paying attention and slightly lowerd it-enough for him to jumo up and try to grab it grabbing myh and instead.
    the second he bite me i firmly said "ENOUGH!-LEAVE IT!" he got the message and walked away. had i not done 2 years of work in this type of situation i would have probably been wrestling him for the closet door to get the ball put away.
    but it was MY fault-not his, i should have not allowed him to get so carried away in the first place, he was only being what he is-a Bull Terrier, after i cleaned it up i gave him a hug and a kiss to let him know it was alright i knew he didnt mean to hurt me.

    That just makes me cross watching that, as has already been said she is a lovely dog just being a Bull Terrier, full of fun and just needing the right kind of direction and play.
