Pit Bull is just a stigmatized word for a variety of stereotyped breeds. Stupid BSLs.

Oooppps, missed it.

I guess it wouldnt matter what you called a Pittie if you are against them, you are against them. Heck I read on this forum how a lab mix was misidentified as a pittie so what chance does a real pittie have.

Funny you should mention this because I met a guy that knew our breeder who has a Pit Bull but it wasn't that on his papers. There are always loopholes and ways around the system. I suppose it just takes a hard a$$ biker to break the rules and have the balls to play the system. It was soft as anything as well bless it!

There has been talk in several states in Germany about lifting all BSL and making dog owners take a course on canine handling and have all dogs put through a simple basic obedience/temperament test with their owners.

With my experience here of irresponsible owners with aggressive dogs (mine has been attacked several times since we arrived here in September while she was ON a leash), that might not be such a bad thing.

In Spain it is a requirement that before you get an 'alleged dangerous breed' you have to undergo a psychiatric examination as well as prove your dog is well handled and under control.

Now obviously there are some folk who don't bother, but if the police find out that you havent then they have the legal right to just shoot the dog.

Not fair on the dog, but at least the owners get a huge fine for being a moron to boot.

Shooting the dog is a bit excessive, but I think the owner should get fined/jail/community service time. It's not a hard thing to do or a big effort to make as a responsible dog owner.

My husband was stationed at Ramstein in the late 60's. I worked on the base in graphics and PR as a civilian employee. My office was at the back of the NCO club. I took my Dobe to work with me every day and he accompanied me in my duties about the base, even to include the base commander's office... Thick carpet there. Took the tour office money to the American Express office weekly with "Rip" as my guard. Can't think things have become so different.
