10 Pit Bull Pics We Wish Everyone Could See

Pit bulls get a bad rap and as dog lovers here at Gear Fuse, we wanted to show these gorgeous dogs in a new light. Before we share these pictures though let us share with you a few facts about pit bulls that you might not know:

– In the early 20th century, pit bulls were the most popular family pet and child guardian. The pit bull was frequently referred to as the “nanny dog.”

– No single neutered household pet Pit Bull has ever killed anyone.

– Many different breeds fall into the category of “pit bull”, including Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Cane Corso, and American Pit Bull Terrier.

– Pit Bulls are not naturally aggressive. There are many contributing factors that determine the temperament of a single dog.

– Pit Bulls are the most euthanized dog in the US, mostly due to the myths that surround the breed.

– In temperament testing, many of the “pit bull breeds” perform at higher levels than golden retrievers.

    Due to Pit Bull’s bad rap for being aggressive, some ASPCA shelters refuse to put them up for adoption and instead put them to sleep. Some counties have made owning a pit bull illegal. You hear in the news pit bulls attacking people in the streets

    Where did you get this from?

    “No single neutered household pet Pit Bull has ever killed anyone.”

    A Google search will find you dozens/hundreds of reports from all over the world from pit bulls killing people.

  3. Boris, you will find the source included in the link below these facts.
    It is important to pay attention to the wording in this statement, the key lies in the words: “single neutered household pet” 🙂

  4. All dogs are susceptible to outbursts of anger and aggression — but unfortunately pit bulls have the ability to lock their jaws such that they do can worse injuries than nearly any other breed. So the basic question is why not simply choose another breed? Why choose the one that has this potentially dangerous physiological capability?

  5. Simple from dogbite.org (there are other sources but lots of overlap between them):

    “A 2009 report issued by DogsBite.org shows that 19 dog breeds contributed to 88 deaths in a recent 3-year period. Pit bulls accounted for 59% followed by rottweilers with 14%. Of the 88 fatal dog attacks recorded by DogsBite.org, pit bull type dogs were responsible for 59% (52). This is equivalent to a pit bull killing a U.S. citizen every 21 days during this 3-year period. The data also shows that pit bulls commit the vast majority of off-property attacks that result in death. Only 18% (16) of the attacks occurred off owner property, yet pit bulls were responsible for 81% (13).” (from that site, page: dog-bite-statistics.php)

    If you own a pit bull, be extra careful. If you have a choice between breeds, why not a different one? And if you have a pit bull, perhaps consider not breeding it. That’s only my opinion (and I like dogs, and don’t even dislike pit bulls per se).

  6. Thank you for your comment Dan. Actually, there is no evidence that pit bulls do lock their jaws! Take a look at this information from Al W. Stinson, D.V.M. Director of Legislative Affairs, Michigan Association for Pure Bred Dogs, and the Michigan Hunting Dog Federation, and a Member of the Board of Directors of the American Dog Owners Association.

    “The following quote was sent to me from Dr. Howard Evans, Professor Emeritus, College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, Ithaca New York. We were colleagues in the veterinary college for four years. He is the author of the textbook, ANATOMY OF THE DOG, (the world’s definitive work on the anatomy of the dog). His statement was in a letter addressed to me on March 26. 2002. His quote was: “I have spoken with [Dr.] Sandy deLahunta (the foremost dog neurologist in the country) and [DR.] Katherine Houpt (a leading dog behaviorist) about a jaw locking mechanism in pit bulls or any other dog and they both say, as do I, that there is NO SUCH THING AS “JAW LOCKING” IN ANY BREED.

    We all agree that the power of the bite is proportional to the size of the jaws and the jaw muscles. There is no anatomical structure that could be a locking mechanism in any dog.” As a Professor Emeritus from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University, I agree completely with their conclusion. “

  7. I dont care what people say pitbulls are probably the best dogs you can have
