Infact I just googled it, there was 2 tests, the first one I got it on the second go, and the second test I got it on the first go, but I chose a Jack Russell in the first test the first time LMAO! I couldn't tell the sizes... so I was debating the actual PBT or the JRT one. I felt like a right tool haha Sad

I can't remember it was ages ago, but that's the kind of thing.

You can legally have a pitbull in the UK by license. There are very strict rules and as lnelson87 said it must be muzzled and on the lead while in public.

I'm all for people owning these dogs but not as a status symbol, which in the UK i can see a large amount of dogs that will be faced with that, i'm not saying they aren't loved and looked after but they are often used as part of an image. No dog should be this.

There's been a few incidents in the news this year regarding collies that have attacked, no one's putting a license on them?! All dogs have the potential to be killers. They're wolves essentially after all.

HERE HERE!


Speaking of every dog could be a killer..
I was reading the metro today and it was regarding the attack on the little girl by the English Bull Terrier... anyway... it was one of the "opinions pages" and a person who claimed to be an animal lover said they want a law passed in which all dogs should be muzzled and on a lead in public places regardless of whether it is friendly or not. I was actually so enraged by this persons comment I wrote in to the metro in a reply to her saying that it was ridiculous and by that sense, every person has a potention to stab someone, so lets all be put under house arrest just in case! LOL. My dog would never harm anyone and would be greatly distressed if he were to wear a muzzle as would any dog, and how is he meant to get the proper excersize he needs if he is on a lead?

So I hope the person who wrote in sees it and I will feel content Big Grin

Not really....it takes a hell of a lot to get a wolf to attack someone!

I know this is ancient history, but I read once the newbies are the ones that find old articles! Wink

So this is my 2 cents. I know I'm in the minority here, so go easy on me lol...

Being a new dog person (as one lady told me at the park seeing my BC pup, "Wow. You went big." ) I never really cared for dogs
until Dachssitting my exe's Oliver for a year. Well he grew on me but I was going to make sure I got one that could at least jump into the
car. And look what I got Smile

Now after a few months in the Dog Park, (it's like the Cheers of Dog Parks - 80's American sitcom about a bar) we all observe all kinds of breed there. I tried to give the Bulls the benefit of the doubt. I tried to have an open mind. These weren't city punks with their 'status symbols'. These were well-off, well adjusted, educated nice normal people, couples with kids etc.
And at the end of the day, when there's an issue to be reckoned with, some out of hand aggressive behavior, some kind of possessive nonsense, steel jaws that won't let go, guess what it usually is? A Bull. Pitt, Staffy, American, whatever you want to call it. Even it my Puppy 1 class, 3 pits, a Rott and my little BC. You could just see the angst oozing from the one's eyes, so restless and snappy, and the poor owners doing all they could to try and calm it.

When one shows up at The Park, tension ensues. Little terriers and toy owners scoop up their pets. The level of play of all dogs seems to morph into something else, I just can't put my finger on it. I scoop up my good competition Hero discs. Because I know when a Bull gets ahold of it it's pretty much destroyed. Even the obnoxious Frenchie and Boston won't release their bear-traps! I'm sure there's plenty of sweet good Pits out there, no doubt. That sweet grey Pit puppy at the park, fixating on Brodie, won't leave him alone, and his BC tenacity won't let himself just get pushed around so he has to escalate. Then the Pit has his jaws on his collar, won't let go and drags him around, so the owner says I need to take my collar off because her Pit likes collars?!?!

But do you really expect me to believe that all the incidents you hear of in the news are a result of bad people just happening to be attracted to this breed?
As Tex said earlier here, they were developed for aggression and not letting up.

Ban the breed and all of its variants for all I care, I wouldn't lose a night of sleep over it...
