Pits are sweet couch potatoes, and they are of at least average intelligence--not the low level of IQ as bulldogs, pugs and beagles.

This is my pit bull / ridgeback mix I got at the Woods Humane shelter in SLO.

And here you can see that vicious, low IQ dog try to bite my face off.



She's definitely not kid safe, but that's the Ridgeback part of her.

What Lollie said +1

There are approximately 500,000 Pit Bulls in American animal shelters.

Furthermore, about 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide each year.

Approximately 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats.

And approximately 1.5 million are euthanized each year (670,000 are dogs and 860,000 are cats).

Locker: Love yer pup!

A 30 lb. pit sounds like a cool dog. Our dearly departed Django was a border collie/blue heeler mix rescue (dumped on our street) and a great, great animal. Miss him everyday. But as one poster said, owning a dog is a lifestyle change--or at least it should be. They're smart, social animals, and it kills me to see so many left to languish in yards, on chains, killed in "shelters," wherever.

It's the OWNER who makes her dogs the way they are. Human responsibilty.

Lollie, I hear where you are coming from, but an owner cannot change the fundamental tendencies of a breed.

This is why police dogs are only a few breeds,

Why shepherds only use a few breeds.

----why fighting pits use only a few breeds.

Perhaps one could train a pit bull to herd sheep, but it would be an uphill battle.

There's going to be some muttering from the sheep about your post, Locker.

As a climber, I deal with the rules of the natural world. Same with flyfishing. My dogs are part of that. People blame my dogs for hurting folks. But the only person my dogs ever bit was the convict who shot at the mail lady. They bit him when I wasnt home and he was tryin to pick their locks to sneak into my property. I was told this by neighbors who saw it.

You should leave Muscleman at the base of a crowded crag on the weekend, to protect your day pack.

If I left Muscleman (Chico) at the bottom of the crag he would be belly up getting loved by anyone who came by. You are not reading this post accurately. My dogs are gentle and non agressive. They look scary to intruders and protect me. But if I left him where people were chillin, theyd be playing together. Yes he bit Nelson, who was tweekin hard fresh out of prison and trying to get in my yard. They know by following my lead that I dont like him. My dogs always follow my lead, starting with the moment They plopped out of Maya (their mother) into my hands.

Given the amount of hostility youve directed at me, Mr Brennon, my dogs probably wouldnt like you very much. I dont like you either.

Proposition 47 etc cetra decriminalized up to 7grams of meth (140 doses) and theft under $1000. I have spoken at length with Sutter Co Sherrifs about that. We unanimously agree that it has led to an unprecedented wave of violence and burglary in our county by drug addicts and thieves out here. Nelson, the violent three time looser now gets released everytime he gets caught going crazy. He roughed up his girlfriend three days ago for the sixth time when he ran out of dope. He tried to smash the patrol car windows with his head as they were hauling him back to mental health. He should do two years for violating probation for the sixth time. But under Jerry Browns new policy, he will be dumped back into our community in three to ten days. Eventually he will probably kill someone. Now ashholes are slinging dope everywhere and stealing or shoplifting all over town. Thats what liberal policy and ignorant "progressives" have caused. The need for home security here has never been greater. I will keep breeding my dogs, thankyou. You libtards keep on turning the world upside down. I plan to stay upright.

You're the one choosing to live in a house in tweakerville. That's like making a living on the pole and bitching how dollar bills scratch your buns.

Ditto on the disagree re: beagles being dumb. Strong willed, yes, distractable, yes, but dumb, no.

If you like doggies check out Netflix' 'Martin Clunes-A Man And His Dogs'. That's right, Doc
Martin is a real pushover for anything furry, but especially dogs and horses.

Locker you idiot that's a beagle/TWC. Quit smoking your old hemp climbing ropes. Or maybe you're smoking goldline. That would explain more.

My dangerous Pit mix, getting ready to attack some powder
Got to admit; as far as dog go, she is not the smartest on the block, but she is loyal to a fault.

I had a beagle, Tessa, when I was young; she was smart when it came to sniffing out food.

Our current pit bull / ridgeback mix, Hanna, is able to learn new tricks very quickly.

Our yellow lab, Whitney, who died a couple months before we got Hanna in 2015, watched a lot of tv--I used to let her run loose in the nearby park, but I had to stop because she was getting too good at stalking squirrels after having watched too many Nat Geo lions.

Whitney watching hyraxes:
