Stand by pit bulls!

Today is my buddy Corbin's third birthday! And as his birthday pressie, he wants something very simple: humans to stop discriminating against his breed. See, Corbin is a pit bull. Some people would think just because of his breed that he's a mean, scary, vicious dog. But he's very sweet and friendly, and I'm proud to call him my furiend! So today, Blogville's posts are dedicated to pit bull awareness, in hopes that one day pit bulls won't be judged just by their breed.

Momma and I always say that you have to learn all about something before you can understand it. That just makes sense, right? So when people tell you that pit bulls are bad and scary, what can you tell them?
  • Pit bulls scored an average of 82.6% on the American Temperament Test. (That's higher than Golden Retrievers and Collies!) The average score for all 121 breeds tested is 77%.
  • Pit bulls are very intelligent and loyal. They love to please their owners, which is why they end up in fighting rings. :( But they're also top choices for all kinds of service dogs, including therapy dogs, law enforcement, bomb sniffers, search & rescue, and the military!
  • Pit bulls used to be called the "nanny's dog" because they were so famously good with kids.
  • Pit bulls were recruiting dogs during World Wars I and II! They were used on recruiting and propaganda posters.
  • Sgt. Stubby was a pit bull war hero in World War I. He saved his entire squadron by warning them of a poison gas attack and even captured a German spy!
Wow, pretty amazing, huh? I feel proud to have pit bull furiends!

Dog attacks are really dangerous and scary, and I don't blame anyone for being afraid of an aggressive dog. I've had some pretty scary moments myself with unleashed dogs! But pit bulls aren't "genetically predisposed" to attacking humans or anything stupid like that. They're dogs. Some dogs are bad, and some dogs are abused and neglected and trained to be aggressive. That's their humans' fault, and it makes me want to bite to think about it.

Humans are really strange sometimes. They pick a breed and decide it's the scariest thing ever. But then after a while, they realize that breed isn't so bad after all. Then instead of realizing that maybe it's just individual dogs that are scary, they move on to another breed! It used to be Dobermans, then Rottweilers, then German Shepherds. Now it's Pit Bulls. But tomorrow it could be Boxers, or Labradors, or any of us. When you let ignorance stand, we all lose.

Stand by pit bulls! We're all man's best friend!

Wowee, Casey! What a super GREAT postie this is! You gave everybuddy some really good information and I just luved this part: "When you let ignorance stand, we all lose." THAT is the TRUTH!

I agrees withs all you said. Even though there do be aggressive dogs it's all done my da hand of man. No dog regardless of breed deserves to be treated likes dat.
Heck, I;d be skeered of an aggressive doggie too. Only cuz I weigh 8.9 pounds...hehehehe.

Anyways, I think it is awfully skeery to thinks dat so many breeds could eventually be banned from what da hoomans has done.

Loves dis postie and your history of da Pit.

Oh, I just love this! This post is so wonderful and informative! No breed should be generalized as a whole. Thank you so much for joining in on this day!

This is an amazing post! I LOVE the graphic and your words are very convincing! I love the combination that they have served as both nannies and war heroes!

Your pal, Pip

All we can say is, Amen, Amen and Amen! It is so unfair that such prejudices exist on these great pitties. Big boo on that. We live around tons of pitties including our next door neighbor. I guess you boxer dudes get some negative comments too so you know how it feels. NOT GOOD. Wish people would be better educated.
