									Unfortunate Impressions on Bull Dog Terriers

People might be wondering why there is such a name as "bull dog".

Originally, Great Britain and later, America were obsessed with bloody
fights between bulls and dogs. The main function of the canine is to hang
on to the bull's neck and worry the poor animal until it dies. Obviously,
these dogs had developed great strength in their jaws.

Among the popular choices of dogs for this sport were the pit bulls. Back
then, the selection of pit bulls was so varied that many showed a variety
of characteristics that made the sport highly interesting. Later in the
life of the sport though, the center of attraction switched towards the
fight between pit bulls and not against the bulls themselves.

From these canines rooted most of the bull dog terriers that we know of

One of the significant bull dog terriers we have is the American
Staffordshire Terrier who is of great interest since it possesses
intriguing seemingly opposing characters.

They project strength and physically power but they are not vicious. In
fact, this dog is very much associated with its relationship to its
family, especially among children. The physical features it has are now
only due to their basic nature and orientation during their bloody fights
as fighting machines. But this does not negate the fact that they can
sometimes show aggressiveness which may somehow work against them.
Nevertheless, this can be set off with their loving nature and devotion
to human family. Thus, it has a stable temperament which make them good
pets and excellent watchdogs.

AmStaff terrier, as it is called by its shorter name suffers in
reputation though since it is commonly associated with pit bulls. These
dogs are known for their love for challnge and are therefore employed in
illegal dog fighting.

Most of the problems root from irresponsible training. Sadly, there are
too few AmStaff that are properly trained. And what's even depressing is
that there are innumerable pit bulls that are continually ill-treated by
sadistic owners.

We are often confused of what true pit bulls are. In fact, many contend
that these dogs must not be called by that name since it elicits unwanted
images of gory dog fights. While this breed is not yet officially
recognized by the American Dog Breeders Association or the United Kennel
Club, the legitimate name remains to be American Pit Bull Terrier.

While it is true that American Pit Bull Terrier is violent in nature,
this doesn’t imply that they are made purely for brutal stuffs. As we
have earlier said, these dogs are only products of maltreatment and
exploitive training (and inhumane) for self serving purposes. Otherwise,
American Pit Bull Terriers can be very people loving.
These are also known for their being hardworking on which they excel
from. They are also fond of excessive physical activities that would
exhaust their power reserves. Thus, this breed is great for those who
need company during athletic training. If you are the couch potato
personality, please find another breed of dog that would suit your

To clear things off, American Pit Bull Terrier are not officially
recognized not because of its ill reputation but mainly due to beliefs
that it is not a purebred. One major standard for a dog to be
distinguished as member of Kennel Clubs is that it should be purebred.
Until more comprehensive findings on its origin are found, this dog will
remain unfortunately tagged as "nasty".
