Shame how a breed of dog gets so maligned. Lots of disinformation about 'em, like how their jaws "lock" when they bite ya, how they can crush a baby's skull in one bite, blah blah blah. Buncha hooey.

That's the problem, that idiot people *want* those laws, and idiot politicians *give* 'em those laws.

The doggie's eye is a bit unsettling....ha, ha, Hence your title : )

BTW, Pitbulls are illegal in Ontario for some time now, due to series of attacks. It created a public outcry and the law followed. Clearly unfair to the dogs, but, there it is.

Yep, that's the point, that they can get so "involved" and "focussed" in being outside, that any training (even pinch-collars) gets quickly forgotten, and they go all mental anyway.

But he's pretty much grown now, and is *still* mental. :\

Ah Gene, You're just being a responsible dog owner, keeping Jamie out of harms way. It's unfortunate that PBs have acquired this stigma because of irresponsible owners. I used the pinch collar to train Bach self control while on a leash, due to his exhubrance while out and about! Today I do not need it because he has learned a few manners. Jamies a beautiful pup and with time will not need any training tools!!

Wellp, the first muzzle was a velcroed "cone" that would let his nose stick out, but he couldn't open his mouf to bark, and we didn't like that, hence this one where he can still bark, howl, you name it.

The collar was what was actually recommended by the trainer. Despite looking nasty, the "spikes" or whatever don't pinch or dig in.

He's a sneaky-smart dog, just dumb as a bag of rocks when it comes to eating crap he finds on the sidewalks or in the gutters.

And he pulls like an Alaskan Mallomar pulling a sled, that the harder you pull back on him, the harder *he* pulls in return.

No worries.

Nah, he'll bark at you, then probably lick you, moreso if you give him food. :D

No idea what's a GL, but I'll goggle it and pass it along, thanks!

Yep, we all know about the H2O2 trick, and that's great if you see the dog in the act, but unfortunately, in that dog's case, he got sluggish, lethargic, bloated, didn't "do his thing" in a coupla days, and that's when they knew something was wrong, and off to the vet they went. Took xrays to find out, then the surgery. Basically, he *somehow* got his paws on the towel and ate it when everyone was at work.

Thanks!

a Gentle Leader is the best for walking any dog. i'm not really very computer literate, or I would include the link. it keeps them from pulling on the leash in a way that does not hurt their neck. please take the time to investigate.
also, we heard the coolest remedy sunday from 2 separate people because one of the dogs at our local park had swallowed a dish rag that morning. the owner followed thru, and the dog vomited the rag up within 5 minutes of the treatment. what you do is take about 6 oz. hydrogen peroxide in a cup, and toss it down the dogs throat. you have to hold his/her mouth clamped shut good, so they will be forced to swallow it. they will start to lick their lips, and then vomit up the item(if it hasn't passed to the intestines). we got the dishrag!!! he first vomited up a small pile of foam, and then the rag. grab it quick before they eat it again!
great photo of the beautiful dog! I only adopt shelter dogs. they are the best!!

Yeah, eating outside *garbage* and ignoring real food is about as inane as getting an expensive gift for a kid, and he ignores the toy and plays with the box instead.

Plus, I know a dog that ate a complete *towel*(!!), and also required surgery to get it out.

I don't get it...

I can sooooo relate with my crazy chihuahuas and Siberian husky. They all eat everything in sight. One of my chihuahuas eat the foam out of a pillow and ended up having intestinal surgery to the tune of 800 bucks. Who eats a pillow??? My crazy dog did. I've also caught the husky eating rocks too. So far she has passed them but now we keep her in a grassy area and constantly check for anything that she manages to drag over and chew on. It will never cease to amaze me how they'll eat everything from my house to rocks and turn their nose up at the dog food I pay 25 bucks for. Crazy I tell ya, crazy!! Both of our chihuahuas are rescue pups. One of which was very abused but with lots of TLC he has recovered and is part of the family now. Tell your sis thanks for adopting him and saving his life. Great job caring for him and keeping he and us safe too.

My mate has two (black) labs, one of which if it were anymore laid back would be horzontal! J looks 'cool', used to often hear people taking about how thier dog will pick up anything, when we had an alsation she was often picking up sticks. In the UK some dogs have to be muzzeled by law (when outside) under the dangerous dogs act.

Hmm, okay, I didn't consider that.

But even so, in today's world, you could be walking your dog down the street on a leash, and a bratty kid might run up to the dog, pull on his whiskers hard enough to hurt and make the dog snap at the kid, and B'harni forbid the bite draws blood, you can be sure you'll end up in court with a big fat lawsuit filed against you.

Especially with a Dreaded Pit Bull, it'd be like a lawsuit-magnet...

Lab?
"Naw, the bratty kid must've done *something* to deserve it. Case dismissed!"

Pit bull?
"That dog's like a loaded gun! You should and *will* be punished for even owning such a dog, or even *thinking* of owning such a dog, and you deserve everything you get! I'm awarding the plaintiffs a brazillion dollars, and treble damages for pain and suffering!!"

And thanks!

Gene - this would be offensive to me without the explanation. Keep in mind I had labs - and like the meter reader said - "I so worry about being licked to death" I fully understand the bad back syndrome and wold do the same thing to protect myself. Hang in there Buddy, I just raised the score .1

Yep, he's a mix of PB and Boxer. He literally "punches" and does other things with his hands, just like Boxers.

And it's true that they're just like other dogs, that it's more nurture than nature. Abuse a PB, and he'll be a killer. Treat one nicely and with care, and he'll be a sweetie.

Absolutely, some dogs are "wired" a certain way, like Jack Russell terriers being hyper, Labs being laid-back, etc., but I haven't heard of any *intrinsic* quality of PBs that make them any more vicious than any other breeds.

What a cutie! Pit Bull, or mix, right? I love them; my next dog will be one, and I'll get it from the local shelter where they always have a number of them (sadly). I used to be so scared of them until I moved to Taos, where four of my neighbors each have one. Once I got to know them, and then started watching the TV shows Pit Boss and Pit Bulls and Parolies, I not only learned to trust them, I also fell in love with the breed.

Yeah, all that hair... :D


Honestly, I'm not even sure *how* it'd be considered "controversial". As in the mask (or collar?) being "animal cruelty" or something?

Sis has neck/back issues, so if this don't-know-my-own-strength critter gives her a good yank, she's on the sidewalk with serious injury, so she *needs* that collar to keep him from pulling too hard, but he *still* does anyway.

The mask, well, it'd be far *more* cruel if he ate something sharp that'd perforate an intestine, including swallowed-whole chicken-bones, pointy rocks, who knows...

It's like whacking a kid who tries running across the street right into the path of oncoming cars. You *WANT* to scare the living crap outta the kid, so that he won't do it again!

Be a "loving parent" all you want and try "asking" or "bargaining with" the kid to not do that, and just *hope* you can have an open-casket when Junior runs in front of the big honkin' SUV that can't stop in time.

Anyway, that being said, I'd *hope* anyone who'd consider one/both to be "controversial", or whatever, would keep the above in mind.

Dogs are like little retarded kids, and kids are like little retarded dogs. Remember that, and you'll never go wrong. :D

Wellp, he was adopted from the pound (on death-row), was scared of his own shadow and wouldn't react much, so sis thought he'd be, umm, mild-mannered.

Hooooo, boy!

Now that he's not afraid anymore, he's a blur. Can't really control him, and he's *strong*. Basically one big *strong* baby, a la Baby Huey.

Unfortunately, he thinks his middle-name is, "NO!! STOP!!". :D

But for everyone else, here in NYC, it's "officially" a heat-wave if we get 3-or-more consecutive days of 90° weather, which we (barely) did.

Anyway, J was looking particularly piqued and grouchy, so I caught him on "film" just like this.
