    like i said ....get yourself over here or ireland and you will witness gameness every bit as impressive as a belly scratching game dog......no of course not dog on dog but theres been many many deeply game digging terriers, when badger digging over here was legal of course ;)......gameness shows itself in many forms apart from a dog fight !
    a badger will take half the face off of a 15 lb terrier and it wont take 30 seconds to do if the dog does not have his wits about him.....just as there is a great deal of thought put into the breeding of apbt game dogs there is equal thought put into the breeding of earth dogs and digging terriers....even a winter dog fox can be a fearsome opponent for a small young terrier....
    a sheep doesnt fight back...a rat is.....well ....just a rat.....but believe me when a terrier has been underground anything up to an hour with a badger he cannot turn and only the front end to work on.....gameness is ALL that dog can rely on.
    many terriermen actually have to breed OUT a little gameness simply because they get sick of having to dig to dead dogs !

    just to add....gameness again of a different kind....i bred coursing lurchers many years ago....a true competition coursing lurcher could win huge amounts of money.....again,before the change of laws :rolleyes:......but i remember many supremely fit lurchers on a daytime hare that practically run themself to death.....the hare is possibly the most phenomenally athletic animals alive....and many lurchers have been too game for their own good by running them until their lungs virtually burst !

    just another example of how gameness comes in many forms.

    Shhh your gonna crush some egos.....

    I have seen discussions on this forum debating whether or not certain dogs were game, clearly it is something that is completely subjective even the definition is debated to no end because there is no single definition.

    Really just about anything that isn't completely tangible is subjective. Freedom, Liberty, Gameness, etc. All can be subjective if you really think about it.

    That is true to a point but gameness seems to be even more so even among the members that defend matching on a regular basis you get arguements about what is game and what isnt.
    There is simply no rules or regulations to go by it is simply one persons opinion vs. others.
    You ask ten different people on this site their definition of gameness and your gonna get ten different definitions.

    I just noticed you used freedom and liberty as other examples which is good because if you look at the heated debate forum both of those are alos subjects that are discussed at length on a regular basis.

    there is an old saying...." ONE MANS GAME DOG IS ANOTHER MANS CUR "

    i am a believer in different levels of gameness......which could also be different levels of cur depending which angle you are looking from......the understanding of gameness can very often get out of control if you dont keep it realistic.......for instance,a terribly out of shape quitter in 20 minutes is most likely a gamer dog than a peak conditioned quitter in 1 hour !.......which is why things need to be kept realistic

    Mr Laced Wit Game believes if im not wrong that only APBT have game mmmmmmmmmm I dont think so, I've seen and witnessed Plot bear hounds run, track and presue bear all day through swamps, woods,hills and flats to tree a bear and find nothing more than a pissed off 400lb black bear ready to kill that pest on its ass all day. These dogs have more drive than anything i've witnesses, broken ribs, leg bones, frackchered skulls, bellies ripped opened guts hanging out, faces half ripped off and still not giving up. Yes these owners of these dogs have high vet bills but they are into this sport for every dime they have for repairs, they treat these dog like there kin. This is what some off these people live for. Ya pitbulls are tough and couse damage to flesh and fight for an hour to prove to be true gladiators. I feel the miss use of drive to kill or distoy can also be used in ability to pull a certian amount of wieght so far so fast or detect by smell a bomb before it goes off or a missing person before its to late. Maybe I just dont get it.:confused:
