Guest Anonymous Posted January 20, 2003 Share Posted January 20, 2003 Before you get any dog it is a wise to learn about the breed or dogs in general, but before you get a dog like a pit bull, you really need to learn a lot about them. Spend time with them, talk to breeders go to shows. It just breaks my heart :cry: when something happens to these dogs. I recently read a post on here that some had a pit bull that killed one of there others. I think it was by some one with the name Dogman, but cant remember. They had 2 Pits thatt killed their other and then they put it down because they had a 15month old. Pit bulls were created for fighting among other things, not of them still have dog-aggressive characteristics. I can beleive someone would put their dog down like that, especially with the excuse i have a 15month old, that is insane and unfair to the dog for an uneducated owner to own this breed. It is unfair to the animal. 2 dogs have lost their lives(actually 3) because this owner didnt know about the breed they owned. 1. Pits can be dog-aggressive 2. Don't pit bulls together insupervised 3. Dog-aggressive is different form people aggression. Many dogs when pit fighting was legal doubled has family pets, they were trusted child companions, some even got along with other dogs outside of the pit. How could you do that to your dogs who are only acting as pit bulls, it is sad that they killed your other dog, but who's fualt is it that they were left together. I tried to warn a neighbor of mine he had 2 pits a male and female, he got the female puppy when his male was over 1yr. He even nuetered him which is wise. No pups, and usually calms them some. These 2 dogs got along they even did everything together, but he would leave them when gone for work. I tried telling him on several occassions, but he refused to listen. One day he came home from work and is female had killed his male. And he was the bigger of the 2 60lbs i think and she didn't weigh more than 40. It was so terrible :cry: , but it was because of his ignorance. :x When this happened the male was 4 and the female about 3, they had lived in harmanoy all this time, then one day something happened and no one was there to stop the worse. So even if you think your dogs get along just fine with the others DO NOT under any circumstances leave them along with eachother. Even if they are not in the least way dog aggressive sometimes dogs fight, or have small disagreements and this is with any breed, but with pit bulls it is much more severe. Once the dogs start it is likely they won't stop without some intervention, so they will go until the other is dead or you may be lucky and just need embergency vet care. This could all be caused by thats my toy or i wanted to lay there. Then a fight happens, just like with any breed but much worse! And in the event that something were to happen don't destroy the dog when it is no more dangerous to you or any other human then it was before. It is the owners fualt when something like this happens!! Please think before getting a pit bull, or any dog! Think about the specific breed you are getting, its charactristics and what it was breed to do. i feel so sorry for all 3 of those dogs, the one killed by the other 2. It must have been in a lot of pain. And the other 2 betrayed by there owner, put to death for the owners mistake and misunderstanding.
