pit bull type dogs

A small child’s dog cart is seen in front of the Charles Wacker house, Grey Gables, on Eden Terrace in Catonsville. (1911, Catonsville, Baltimore County, Maryland)

From the Baltimore County Public Library’s historic photo collection.

So I thought of this Harry Potter headcanon yesterday, pertaining to Animagus like…what if instead of just turning into one specific animal (Sirius with the black dog, McGonagall with the specific cat, so on) they are able to turn into different types within the same species?  Or whatever that would be called.  Like Sirius could also turn into different types of dogs (such as pit bulls or german shepards) or even better, McGonagall could turn into different types of cats, such as tigers and lions?  Idk, I was thinking about it a lot yesterday because only being able to choose one animal that you are stuck with for the rest of your life sounds boring.

This blog is relatively new, so I’m looking for people to follow and such. If you regularly blog about any of the following, make yourself known? I’d love to make some new friends. Here’s what I’m obsessed with:

The 100 (Finn Collins, John Murphy, Bellamy Blake)
Supernatural (dean!girl)
Marvel comics & MCU (Tony Stark, Deadpool, Hawkeye, Wolverine)
Gay people (no really)
Writing/literature
Acting/entertainment/marketing
Star Wars (the EU will always be canon)
Animals (dogs: pit bull types)
And some random stuff too

I am often shocked at how many think all Pit Bulls are “animal aggressive”. Socialization is key to any dog, and a Pit Bull is no different. Lita has been around newborn birds, chickens, horses, turtles, and even lived with a cat. She loves everything, regardless of species. Remember, ALL dogs are individuals. Regardless of breed. ❤️

Dog Fights

What are Dog Fights? Dog Fights are when two dogs are placed into a ring and are forced to fight one another. These fights can last up to three hours! The dogs are only done fighting once they cannot continue, or will not continue. Why do people have Dog Fights? Dog Fights are used as a way to gamble. People put money on the dog they believe that will win. This is a vicious way for people to get their money. What are problems with Dog Fights? The main type of dog that participates in fights Pit Bulls. A concern with this main use of the breed puts a bad reputation on these dogs. Many of the dogs are trained, and breed specifically to fight. The dogs are broken down to know only how to kill. Dog Fights led serious injuries to the animals. The dogs have bite mark, and lots of scarring due to the fights. Dog Fights are just a poor excuse for some humans to try and abuse their power over the animals.

Answer on @Quora by @AdrianaHeguy to What is this type of dog called? - Xochielt Sanchez

Answer by Adriana Heguy:

It’s a pit bull mix, or “backyard pit bull”, meaning it could be mostly or all American Staffordshire Terrier (Am Staff) but it has no American Kennel Club papers. It’s the most common type of dog in American shelters. This one in the picture is what some call a “red nose pitbull”.

I have two pit bull mixes adopted from NYC shelters. Don’t worry about the kind of dog it is, worry about its personality if you want to adopt her. Many are very gentle, like the one you describe. Others are not.
