I was really enjoying this magazine until I read the "But he's such a good dog" article where they recommend keeping your APBT away from dog parks. I couldn't disagree more!


I had never owned a dog before but started going to the dog park with a friend when I was considering entering into the world of dog ownership. The majority of dogs at this park were APBTs and they were the friendliest, sweetest, most well behaved dogs. My experience with these dogs convinced me that APBT's were the way to go and last year I adopted my very own ABPT from the local
shelter.

Frankie has been a wonderful addition to my life, and the highlight of her day is going to the local dog park and playing with all the other dogs. What better way to change minds than to expose others to responsible, well socialized ABPTs.

APBT's are wonderful dogs, it is great to see this magazine with articles from people who really understand how this breed has gotten such a bad reputation, and what a APBT is really like. I think more strict laws should be put in place to protect animals, it is so sad what some dogs (particuraly this breed) has had to endure over the years, and now they are so often blamed because of a human's actions. It was great to see this magazine on the rack.

I bought this magazine and really like this article. I've had pits almost my whole life and have never experienced a personal problem with them. I've had a dog who's had puppies and it's so hard to find the right kind of people to take them in because you're so worried that they will do something to further the horrible stereotype. I hope more articles like this are written, however I wouldnt suggest to keep your dog away from other dogs, unless it's agressive but that should be any dog. I think pits are much better when they are giving the chance to interact with other dogs. atleast mine likes it!

I have been a Blue Nose APBT breeder for several years now and my parents breed ASTs my entire childhood and teenage years. Your magazine does have alot of helpful tips and ideas for not only new APBT owners but also for people who have been involved with them for years. There is only one thing that I disagree greatly with in several parts of the mag I noticed that dog parks were frowned upon for APBTs. Again I have seen and raised hundreds of APBTs and I have trained probably hundreds more. Every APBT that I have ever owned whether for breeding or not I have taken to the dog park. I always start them at an early age(after all their shots) and I have never had an issue. Your mag also contradicts itself by saying socialization is a big factor with these dogs (which it is) and in one artical it suggests "puppy parties" or play dates so which is it? Yes these dogs were originally breed for fighting and some still are unfortunately but aggressiveness is not in their blood it is something that is taught to them. Yes there will always be people that hate them because they dont know them and on the other hand there will always be people who hate Rotts and Dobies. But telling people not to take their APBT to a dog park is ridiculous. With the proper training and guidance they will do just fine in any situation. Are there bad seeds? Absolutely, but there are with any breed. I cant tell you how many arguments I have been in where my breed choice is concerned but in the end I walk away knowing that I have wonderful dogs and no one can take that from me. I am very active where APBTs are concerned especially here in Las Vegas where there are probably more irresponsible owners and backyard breeders than the rest of the country put together. I take pride in knowing that I can go anywhere with my APBTs (Sarge and Daisy) and I wont have an issue with either one of them. The best advice I can give is keep your rules and guidelines stern and enforce them at all times and your APBT will be a wonderful companion.

I love your magazine. I have had APBTs my whole life, you will never find a more happy, loyal companion with a huge heart to please. They are so misunderstood and often times the low lifes of society prey on the breed for the wrong reasons because they are so loyal.

they are the red headed step child of the dog world. they are so misunderstood My family has two and I had other breeds queenslander heeler and german shepard, but the APBT just do not compare. THey are so smart and have so much potential to help the society as working dogs and turn the sterotype around.

Being an owner of 2 Pit Bull's I've always made it a point to show people how sweet these dogs really are. A freind of mine was not to sure of my dogs because of the breed. He soon found out they are large teddy bears. They want nothing to do but be right next to the new guy. Within minutes of sitting on my couch the 2 dogs were kissing him like crazy. Then they fell asleep on him using him as a pillow. It's sad many people are like this and never give the breed a chance. Walking my dogs and see some people scatter upsets me, but its the people that love to say hi to my dogs that make me feel good. The best part is they always have a little story about a friend, family, neighbor etc. that has a pit bull and it's the best dog.

I love Pit Bull Terriers. I give my dog a ton of exercise, discipline and love. Those three things along with a balanced diet has given me a well behaved, healthy happy Pit Bull Terrier (red nose) that I am proud to own.

Never was really interested in pitbulls, never against them though either. But my boyfriend always wanted one, and when we decided to move in together, we adopted our first dog through the humane society, she happened to be a pitbull. After that, I fell in love. Saw a litter ready for adoption the week of my boyfriends birthday, and had to get him one. So we then had two amazing dogs. A few weeks later, our neighbors decided they wanted a dog and fell in love with this dog from the newspaper, and we fell in love with his brother... so we now have 3 pitbulls, and besides an English Mastiff and Dogo Argentino which I have always wanted, I will never get any other type of dog.

I have always believed the hype that hear about Pit Bulls being viscous dogs because I had no experience with them. In the past year I was introduced to my fiancee's pure blood pit bull named Fancy who was roughly 2 years old. I was only around her for a month before she died from a bad case of Parvo. From the first 10 minutes I met her, we became best friends. I figured she was one of a kind. Two weeks ago my fiancee adopted a 27 month old pit from a neighbor who was enlisting and found out that Fancy was not one of a kind as far as being good tempered, because this new dog has become one of my best friends. I now want to do everything I can to learn about this breed and give them a better name. They deserve it.

I have a 1yr old apbt named Stella. She is the most loyal, gentle, loving dog i've ever owned.. and i've owned quite a few. and she is the only dog i can have off lead no matter where i am. she loves little kids and as long as they don't show fear she doesn't either. she'll walk right up to anybody and lick them in the face.. even though sometimes that doesn't exactly go over very well since so many people have a terrible bias against these AMAZING dogs. all i want to do is get more.
