DON'T FEED THE STEREOTYPE

I believe Pit Bulls are inherently good. I believe there are too many irresponsible owners, too many dog fighting rings, too many backyard breeders, and too many people feeding into a false stereotype. I believe through educating, advocating, and training, the Pit Bull breed can be saved.

The American Temperament Test Society

https://atts.org/breed-statistics/statistics-page1/

The ATTS Temperament Test focuses and measures different aspects of temperament such as stability, shyness, aggressiveness, and friendliness as well as the dog's instinct for protectiveness towards its' handler and/or self-preservation in the face of a threat. The test is designed for the betterment of all breeds of dogs and takes into consideration each breeds' inherent tendencies. Due to breed-specific legislation and negative publicity associated with Pit Bulls, temperament testing is even more important!

Among all the breeds tested, 83% passed. Pit Bulls had an above average temperament with 87% making the grade. Second most tolerant breed only to Golden Retrievers!

Myth I: Pit Bulls are inherently vicious.

Pit Bulls, just like any other dog, have individual personalities that are shaped & molded through the environment they are raised. They are inherently good unless you raise them to be different. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

Myth II: Pit Bulls have locking jaws.

Probably, the most popular myth and the main reason they are feared. This is a false stereotype. Pit Bulls do not have the bite force of over 2,000 PSI. That would be more than a Hippo! A dog's bite force is dependent on the size of their body and skull. Dogs with larger heads tend to have higher bite force as they also have larger jaws. Pit Bulls have less bite force than German Shepards, Rottweilers, Mastiffs, and numerous other breeds. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

Myths III: Pit Bulls aren't good family dogs.

Pit Bulls were known as 'Nanny Dogs' for over a century. This nature is still present in the core of these dogs. Pit Bulls want nothing more than to be a part of the family. Their true nature is being absolutely playful and loving towards the family, especially children. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

Myth IV: Pit Bulls aren't good with other dogs.

ANY DOG not properly socialized with other dogs can be skeptical of other approaching pups. Pit Bulls, just like any other dog, are friendly towards other dogs if you raise them to be. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

Myth V: Pit Bulls turn on their owners.

The top quality of Pit Bulls is their loyalty. Why would a dog known for being loyal turn on their owner?! This trait is why many owners, especially those with bad intentions, choose to have Pit Bulls. Their drive to please their owners, no matter the deed trained to do, is unquenchable. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

Myth VI: Pit Bulls make great guard dogs.

A Pit Bull's temperament is so friendly that they are accepting to strangers. That does not mean that they will not protect their family if the situation were to arise. It means they do not have to be trained to do so. They should not be trained to be aggressive in the hopes of protection. Don't Feed The Stereotype!

The truth is, any dog, especially large dogs, that have been abused can be dangerous. Those individuals that feed into the stereotypes and innate Pit Bull aggression display a core misunderstanding of the true nature of not just Pit Bulls, but all dogs!
