    DO NOT let that continue. thats a bad habit for a dog and could mean the death of him/her

    Hell yeah. Ever seen a dog injured by livestock?
    Or a dog shot for chasing a neighbors livestock? Be careful bud.

    And please, do not leave your dogs unsupervised together. You don't want to run the risk of finding your hound seriously injured or dead someday.

    BullyPit (American Bulldog/Pitbull mix) Oh no no he knows better than to go after the cows now, expensive show cattle can't afford to have one ran through the fence or anything of that nature, but I've had him several weeks now and he is doing very good on obedience training, he finally understnad what NO means lol

    Well that's good.

    You should just call your dog a mix though. You're going to confuse people calling him a Bullypit and the last thing we need is more confusion related to these dogs.

    I thought that was the general name for american bulldog pitbull mixes? But no matter what I call it the average public is always fearful and calls him a "pit" untill they see just what a sweet heart he really is!

    I've never heard the term Bullypit. :confused:
    But you are right about the general public being assumptive and misinformed.
    That's just another reason to be very clear on what type of dog his, rather than confusing people who may think it is a new breed rather than a mix of two traditional breeds, which can make it harder to understand.

    Hey if I edited the original post (to bold titles and such, make it easier on the eyes) could someone edit it in for me? :o
  9. I think any dog no matter the size or breed, has the capability of being dog aggressive or human aggressive. If all dog owners could remember that, the world would be a better place. =)

    some are far more likely to be DA just like some are far more likely to be HA... FACT
    if the people who own these breeds would accept that and prepare for that, the world would be a better place =)

    I believe pit's agression is controlable and train-able. Love their subtle quiet character though might be fairly risky bonding/socializing with other dogs.

    Then again, this unique character or others regard this as agression is what makes us really attracted to the breed right? I would rather have a dog sociable, obedient and friendly towards me and my family rather than some erratic big breed that will pounce and bite my extended family though they have seen them during their pup life.

    Being unfriendly is the least of my concern cos after all, it's easy to keep them away from victimizing other dogs as long as the upbringing is correct.

    Good read on this topic btw.
  13. ...... a very aggresive & big dog wich trys to wipe a very small & friendly pitdog gets a lesson for life.

    What did this mean?

    You get out of deep game lines cold dogs.....like for example Honeybunch wich showed later a very high game level.

    If you bred for gameness doesnt mean you get more aggressive dogs, every dog ( or wolve ) is aggressive but that doesnt tells he is game = ( will with a mountain of conzentrationabylity work and never stop to work ) .....

    Bulldogs are bred to never give up and in this case aggression dont helps ( thatswhy noises in the fight are bad signs, )

    Bulldogs are not more aggressive like for example wolves, but they are the better fighter....but again, that has nothing with aggression to do.

    I think you missed the point.

    Is there any chance that some APBT's may not be DA at all? Or does a non-DA dog just not qualify as pure APBT?

    There's some chance of an APBT not being DA but I wouldn't bet on it. Some great pit dogs of history were dog friendly outside the box.

    BarbaraClark NuckingFuts

    Outside the box you mean...outside the pit, or ring?
  18. cliffdog

    cliffdog Good Dog

    Yeah. Nigerino was one of them I believe. He'd play with certain other dogs but was a GR CH in the pit.
  19. BarbaraClark

    BarbaraClark NuckingFuts

    What does GR CH mean? And that's pretty cool. I'm guessing they trained them to only be DA while in the pit? That's some serious stuff.
