    youre not making much of a point when a person buys dogs from a breeder that calls em gamebred dogs also:D. with a clean yard and well maintained dogs some folk arent scared. you all will say thats foolish, but not everyone in this world accepts the idea that they have to be scared because they have dogs. guess its the rebel mentality

    Sure ideally that would be great but you know that is NEVER going to happen. So what's the next best solution?


    Yes it is different. Saying that your dog is gamebred might not mean you fight your dog but it could definately mean that you support dog fighting.
    It would be like buying stolen stuff. Sure I didn't steal it but if I buy it from someone that did that means I am supporting that behavior which I think is almost as bad.

    matching YOUR dog or supporting someone who does to better the breed is by no means in the same category as stealing someone elses stuff or supporting theives. :no2: and i dont agree with your statement that im supporting a dogfighter by buying a dog of gamebred lines. my dogs heritage goes back quite a few years, not some punk backalley fighter...real dogmen

    It doesn't matter if it is a real dogman or a thug fighting its still just as illegal.
    If you buy a gamebred dog from a breeder that matches their dogs you are supporting illegal activity end of story.
    It doesn't matter if you think it is right or not. IMO matching dogs is far worse then stealing a stereo.

    its not the same, a real dogman gave the dogs necessary medical treatment. thugs dont know when to picka dog up in the firstplace. thats the difference, one shouldnt even own this breed

    In the eyes of the law its the same. It doesnt make it any less illegal if your a dogman.

    Well in that case its a moral question I personally wouldnt do it because I don't want to support those kinds of people but I know there are a ton of people on this site that could care less.
    At the same time buying stolen property from somewhere stealing is legal (not that there is such a place) doesn't make it any less stolen or make it right to do it.

    So here is a hypothetical question.
    Would you buy a dog from a breeder that was known for having the absolute best dogs out there but you didn't agree with the way he/she treats his dogs??

    maybe it depends on what you mean by me not agreeing with how he treats his dogs....who am i to tell a man what to do with his property and how to raise his dogs...some people see having a yard of dogs on chainspots is mistreatment
     
  11. Pitlove

    Pitlove Big Dog

    That's true but you can guarentee those people won't be buying a dog from that person.

    What if it was something that YOU viewed as mistreatment whatever that may be. Would you still support that breeder by giving them money for one of their dogs?

    If you believe it's mistreatment, then you should not get the dog from that person. If you don't believe, so, then go ahead and get that dog.

    What i was saying was to reserve for tested dogs, or dogs with tested parents. I won't call my dog game bred..because if anything he's bull bred lol. I've come to accept and pretty much embrace the fact that he more than likely is part american bulldog.
     

  16. Yeah, every time I log on at this site I'm reminded that not everyone thinks alike.
    I remember when I first got a pit bull, I was in the "it's so cruel!!" crowd. Until I witnessed a yard accident. Then I realized that it isn't like I thought it was. They aren't made to fight, they just do it. They won't stop, they don't feel pain, they are totally focused on battle. They just shine with pride and courage. It's a thing of beauty.
    But I also realize it's useless to try to argue with the others who don't understand. Alot of people have never met a real dogman, and don't understand the devotion and love you feel for your dog. And granted, there aren't alot of Bob Wallace's or Howard Heinzl's left out there...Most folks are educated thru the media who see thugs fighting street dogs that are unconditioned, uncontracted or worse fighting against another breed, and when they are done the losing dog is discarded like trash and the winner is crated without medical care or locked in an abandoned house with a bucket of water and a bag of feed till next time it's fought.

    I'm all for differences of opinion, but we all can agree that we must join together to fight against the people who want to take the dogs away from us.

    You can have your opinion if you want but my opinion is the only thing lower than a thief is a child molester.It's pretty low to take something someone else worked for.

    As far as to what we should call these dogs,I usually call them a APBT or just plain bulldog.Gamebred or coming from game lines should kind of go without saying.If it ain't gamebred,to me it aint an APBT.Just my opinion.

    I agree to an extent, but the so called "dog fighters" being falsely accused and havng their dogs put down is bringing bad press more so than anything esle, when peopel hear dog fighting ring (whether it is BS or not) bad press is bound to happen.. How many ambully kennels are being accused of fighting dogs? I am not saying the APBT people getting arrested are guilty, not at all, but that in itself whether it is true or false is, and will continue to bring negative press every time it happens. More then ambullies will. People do not know the diff between DA and HA (the Gen public). And staiting you support game dogs, that is great, but saying it out loud on a public forum just isn't a great idea IMO. It just gives goodwin more of a reason to keep on with the witch hunts.
