  • Wow Mustbegrace! Why did she deserve such a rude comment from you?

    Actually, I'm one of those that can't distinguish one from another and I find this post very informative!

  • Way to be a cunt mustbegrace. Did she say her husband shot a dog? No, her neighbor shot a dog to save her and she feels badly about it. No need to act like a twat waffle.

  • I've posted pictures of my dog before. He's a mix of lab and pit bull. Here's the thing for me, whether it's a pit or chihuahua any dog can be dangerous. I read an article several years ago where they surveyed mail carriers. They dog they were bitten by the most was the cocker spaniel. In my view the caution that is automatic with larger breed dogs should be shown with any dog you don't know. Regardless of which picture is a pit bull any one of these dogs could potentially hurt someone.

  • No #2 is a what AKC calls a Dogue De Bordeau and they are the breed of dog that is strong, powerful, and imposing. The Dogue de Bordeaux is one of the most ancient French breeds. This dog also played in the movie with Tom Hanks as a detective and his partner was this kinda dog. And for the life of me I can't remember the name of it!

  • I actually did "guess" it, but it's simply because of previous similar "tests". I would NEVER confuse a pit bulk with a Labrador, Rottweiler, Boxer or Mastiff. You cannot see it on the pictures, but some of these dogs, when seen IRL are of a completely different size, there's no way anyone could confuse it with a pit bull. In a cleverly chosen picture... It looks much more alike. The rest of the breeds (those that could actually be confused with put bulls) are so rare that it's ridiculous to suggest that you weren't attacked by an AMERICAN pit bull in the US... It was a Boerboel or a Cae De Bou, more likely... Give me a break.

  • Bullshit, look it up momto2boys, it does happen, and it happens a lot. And except for a chosen few, they all are American dogs. You would get this in AKC dog show.

  • ". I would NEVER confuse a pit bulk with a Labrador, Rottweiler, Boxer or Mastiff."
    I would hope not, considering they all are not even in the terrier family. The dogs up there have terrier cross breeding.

  • They ALL look like Pitbulls, to me. I don't go near strange dogs--unless they are Cocker Spaniels or Beagles. ~ Iga

    As a vet tech, it was Cockers that I would avoid if I could get away with it, along with Poodles, Chis, and most little dogs (little dogs actually scare me ... I got teased about that a LOT lol). I've worked with Rotties, Dobies, Shepherds, Mastiffs, and a lot of other large dogs as well as Chows (love them!!) and other medium sized dogs, but I've been bitten more often by Cockers and Poodles than any other breeds. Some breeds can bite harder, but they bite far less then those that so many people consider 'safe'. The fact is that ALL dogs are capable of biting if provoked. That doesn't make them bad, it makes people who deliberately provoke one stupid. Too many good dogs pay for stupid human tricks, and my sympathy will always go to a dog who pays for that stupidity.
