ive got 2 myself. definatly the sweetest dogs ive ever had. my first, roxi is about 2 years old now and we got her when she was 10 weeks. she is VERY protective over the house so me and the girl feel very safe at home with her. she is a sweetheart and loves everyone that she meets. and petey, our second, we just got about a month and a half ago. we got him when he was 11 weeks old. she is just the most playful little puppy! he loves people more than other dogs, because he was bottle fed from when he was 2 weeks old.

I had a pitbull. I found her as a stray when she was still a puppy.

Coco is the best dog. She rarely barks, and is playful as hell. She let my 3 year old sit on her, lay down on her, pull her ears, etc.

A few years back, I had a minor kitten problem. My parents (who now have coco because there is a ban on pits where I live ), adopted one of my kitties.

Coco and Blackbeard (the cat), are best friends. There were times when Coco would "bite" the kitten, and have his whole head in her mouth.

Here are some pics to prove it:





I hate that there is such a sterotype about Pits. Yes, some are vicious and attack, but not all of them are bad.

Thanks. It's funny... She was mal nutritioned and had mange when I found her. Everyone thought I was nuts.. "She could have been abused." "She'll turn on you." Nah. She's a sweetheart.

I had other pit owners who wanted to breed with her, because I'm 99% she's a pure red nosed pit. However, since she was a stray, I have no papers.

And my parents had her fixed. Could have made some money.

Yeah, I personally wouldn't have a dog in an apartment, but I was commenting on the prejudice of the breeds. There are other people that have breeds bigger than the ones I listed in their apts.

They are American Staffordshire Terriers, not 'Pits'. :grrr:
My grandmother was a breeder of AST's for nearly 20yrs. 70's in to the early 90's when she got too old to do stuff. I grew up with them and my dads GSD (old school Alsatian not the crap out today) and have nothing but good memories for them.
They are awesome dogs great with their family (pack).
As long as they are trained up right as pups (positive reinforcement), not abused or left to develop bad habits as teens they turn out great and like pretty much any other dog.

+1 for AST's

I agree. An apartment is no place for a dog of that size, or any dog, imo.

Skell - As long as you take care of your cats (litterboxes, etc) it shouldn't smell.

Then again, I have a big, 2 story, hardwood floor apt.. I will agree that if a cat pisses on carpet, it stinks.

I don't think my place smells.

We had our Akita in an apt.
Large & giant breeds tend to do well in apts. and tighter spaces.
As for smells and stuff thats dependent on the animals diet and the owners own cleanliness skills.

Thats because folks are running around referring to them as Pitbull and Pit, the street name toward a breed that has like 7 different and varying classes within itself.
Folks wonder why towns are banning their animals but they go and support the stereotype, which is largely unfair as the breed goes.

Awdity,

Who said anything about a bulldog?
Yeah thats a whole other dog.

While the APT is a variant of the AST.
Akin to the GSD and Belgian Malinois.

American Staf is just the AKC's name for pitbull since they werent about to be associated with the whole pit name, its still the same darn dog.
AKC American Staffordshire Bullterrier is the same thing as the UKC American Pitbull Terrier, as the UKC fears no name!

Sure, you can get all nitpicky and find the oh so slightest differences, but they are a large number of dual registered dogs that show both UKC and AKC.

And on that note, pitbulls are great dogs for the right person, just like any other dog out there. I personally adore the square headed meatheads!

There is also nothing wrong with dogs in apartments if you learn the ways of the vacuum cleaner and walk the dog. Our american bulldog lived quite happily in an apartment for a year with no associated stink that you are ranting on about. Our Amull and cane corso are indoor dogs anyway, even though we have a yard, so whats the difference between that and and them living in an apartment?

early american pitbulls were bred from english bulldogs and terriers of different kinds. ive seen the pitbull(amstaff) fall under two classes: terriers and mastiffs. however when discussing bully breeds, bulldogs, bull terriers,pits and amstaffs all fall under whats considered the bully breed. early wood carvings and drawings show dogs of the similar shape and size to "pits" nowadays as being the original bulldog. to compare "pits" and bulldogs is common under such criteria as socialization, training and breeding. all are similar in habit and demeanor. as far as classifying pitbulls and amstaffs as two different dogs is a personal issue. within the past few yrs staffordshire has been coined because of the fact that the breed was said to have originated there. someone was correct above in stating that the name amstaff was one of the kennel clubs name for the breed because of the frightening sound of the word "pitbull" and its association to fighting.

the only thing you have to watch out for with pitbulls is that while the dog is around... no one even play fights or hits you...

ive seen bad things...

but to the owner... loyal as hell...
