One of the lowest IQ breeds ever.

Earlier the logic was advanced that we should accept the low probability of being injured by a neighbor's pet, because automobile accidents are more frequent. Relative frequencies are irrelevant. There is no reason for me to accept risk due to another's pet. We accept automobile risks because there is often no alternative.

When I was small our family had a dog that got into the neighbor's chicken coop. Carrying his 12 gauge our father walked us down to the back lot with the dog. Saying "once a dog has gotten into a chicken coop there is no recourse," He shot the dog saying "Now bury him." The three of us got a lesson in responsibility. Those who have a pet also have the responsibility for controlling that pet. I also think that responsibility cannot be shucked off onto an animal shelter. When one takes on a pet, it needs to be done with full knowledge of the responsibility one is undertaking.

Farmers are tough. My dad had a few tough draconian lessons to teach as well. He was a farmer and an Episcopal minister. All I can say is god help you if you mess with the lords Corn, Cabbage or chickens......

I can see that the politics of this thread have made it uncomfortable for anyone to show interest in my puppies. So if anyone wants further information, please email me at robtrelford@yahoo.com. Trolls please stay away from my email.

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

I like these kind of dogs. Purebred on mentally stable lines they're lovely.
Following what you've written, is there anyone on this site who seriously believes I'm a tattooed criminal?

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.

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.
