So called “Pit Bull” Advocates are getting their undies in a twist over Petsmarts policy of not allowing Bully breed into their daycamp.

Do people not realize that Bully Breeds, especially APBT’s are prone to dog aggression? Petsmart is doing the right thing in not allowing bull breeds into the program for the safety of other dogs. 

Bull breeds start fights in doggy camps all the time…granted so do dogs of other breeds and mixes but the difference is that once an APBT or related breeds start a fight they often will not stop until the other dog is dead. 

Look what happened last week I believe when the Bully mix managed to get free and attacked a smaller dog, resulting in the dog getting stabbed and PTS.

What would happen if a Bull breed suddenly decided that it does not like a dog in the camp and attacks it? 

So all the “Pit Bull” advocates need to take a step back, read up on the History of the APBT and use their heads. Dog aggression is a common genetic trait in APBTs and mixes. 

Petsmart is not against Bully Breeds, they are merely trying to be responsible and keep dogs in the program safe from the possibility of getting attacked by possible dog aggressive Bulldogs. 

So the other day I found I have to pay for more insurance on my dog than other people because she’s a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Their argument is that they are “unreliable and vicious”

First of all, fuck you government. I’ve seen Dalmatians do worse damage than my sweetheart would ever even think about doing to anyone. Second of all, Staffies were nicknamed “The Nanny Dog” in England. Why? Because they take care of children as their own. And third, my picture is my Staffordshire kissing my cheek. Are you going to tell me she’s just trying to see how I taste when she decides to eat me?

Last night I found the Fugly Dog Blog. This made me really happy. It’s great to see dog blogs which don’t dance around the fact that deforming dogs for aesthetic purposes is a cruel and disgusting practice. The overall acceptance of English Bulldogs, Pugs, Pekingese, Neapolitan Mastiffs, Great Danes, and about a hundred other grievously exaggerated breeds as normal and healthy is alarming. So, in honor of dog lover awareness, here’s a post with what can easily be considered one of the worst human failures in all of dogdom: the American Bully. Often simply called “pits” or “pit bulls” (or even more incorrectly, “pitts”/”pittbulls”), these dogs are nothing but a useless bastardization of the working/game-bred or ADBA/AADR American Pit Bull Terrier, or even the show-bred but largely healthy and structurally sound American Staffordshire Terrier (two breeds which intermingle heavily within the UKC, to the point of often being considered a single breed, or sometimes referred to as a Pitterstaff).

Many breeders claim that their American Bullies or “Bully Pit Bulls”/”Bully Pits” are nothing but American Pit Bull Terriers bred for “bone, head size, mass, density,” et cetera, but this is largely blatantly false. In some cases there is a slight possibility that the dogs are purebred American Pit Bull Terriers which simply have severe deformities, but by and large they are clear crosses to established freak shows dog breeds such as various mastiffs and English or French Bulldogs. To be completely fair, not all American Bullies are this extreme; there are many backyard breeders pumping out “pit bulls” as pets which are bred more like bullies than true APBTs, and even in the American Bully show world there are Classic and Standard “type” American Bullies. However, the dogs shown here are the popular ones which go for thousands, or even tens of thousands, of dollars.

But wait, there’s more! I’ve compiled several other examples:

If you can look at these dogs without realizing something has gone very very wrong, you are far too desensitized to the cruelty we put our so-called best friends through.
