    Canmore, not so much.

    The American Pit Bull Terrier has a bad rap.

    Most people can't even identify one.
    Instead, aggression by dozens of other breeds are often blamed on them.
    In fact, many folks and news outlets mislead the public by indiscriminately calling agggressive dogs "Pit Bulls".

    See if you can ID the American Pit Bull Terrier.
    Take the test:

    "Pick the Pit"

    Let us know how you do.

    Yes it does. That's all I've said. Statistically, it's number one when it comes to fatalities. That is a bad rap. No other dog is worse.

      The Bull Terrier is the one I picked AZ and that's the one I've seen photographed in most stories about dogs mauling infants etc. In every story it is wrongly identified as Pit Bull rather than Bull Terrier.

        It's really sad that such a wonderful breed takes a massive beat down from the media. I just wish people get the chance to be around a pit and see how much fun and loving they are. I've bought adult pits (which by many is a huge mistake) and I haven't had one problem with them.

        It bothers me that they get judged without knowing the whole story. My neighbor has 2 pitbulls, and these kids always walk by and kick the fence, throw things at them, and jump the fence (dogs on a chain). Now if those dogs ever get a hold to one of those kids, then it's going to be on the world news.....BREAKING NEWS PITBULL ATTACKS KID, but nobody knows that these kids have been little demons to the dogs, and nobody cares to ask what in the hell was the kid doing in the man yard?

        It's sad that people want to take away our Pits and Guns as a solution to the problem, instead of getting to the core of the problem that doesn't have a damn thing to do with Pits or Guns.

          I wanted to pick the Pitt Bull first because it looks the most like my Pitt/Lab mix. But my wife insisted no.

          So I picked one other first which I don't remember the name. It was wrong so then I picked the Pitt and was right.

          I also knew the Bull Terrior immediately. Most people probably do think a bull Terrior is a Pitt bull.

          Although I would be willing to bet Bull Terriors also mostly get their aggressive nature from neglect and intentional training.

          But I don't have as much experience with them in real life so not for sure.

          The only dog I really have heard is consistent in turning on their owners even when they are treated well is Rottweilers

            Funny you say that about rotties. I feel hypocritical being a pitty lover saying it but it's the only breed ( rottie) I feel uncomfortable around. I really don't trust them.

              Well like I said rottie's have a history of turning on even the good owners. I did a lot of reading up on breed temperaments for bigger dogs back when my wife and I got married. Mainly because we knew whatever we got would still be around when we started having children. Multiple books said Rott's do not belong around children. Oddly enough it said the same thing about Westland Terriers. Small dogs but don't like children.

              But due to this I will never own a rottweiler. The size also scares me for if they do turn. Not that I wouldn't also be completely helpless against an angry Pitt but I would think if someone else was around they might be able to help against a Pitt Bull attack better than a Rott.

                It's always good to exercise caution with dogs & young kids.
                Sadly, a very well-trained, friendly dog killed a week old baby in South Wales recently

                  That's terrible news...unless the dog was trained to kill babies. Which I think is still terrible but in defense of the dog what else was it supposed to do.

                    Yah, it was all very tragic. The parent had to go answer the door, left baby for a few seconds in the room in it's cot with the door closed but the dog forced the door open and attacked the baby.

                      That's pretty crazy. What kind of dog?

                        The only reason I missed it on the first selection, was because I was sure they were trying to be tricky….


                        The only thing I could think when I first saw that video is that the dog needs to be put down. Didn't think for a second that it was a certain type of breed…. just thought the owners of that dog should have been more responsible….
