The Pit bull Dog
Pit bull dog has a history that links to its temperament and aggression. The breed was developed for fights and was used in bear baiting, bull baiting and in dog fights. They are therefore very aggressive and should never be left un-supervised with other dogs. Their aggression is evident especially after reaching the maturity age. They like stalking small animals like chicken, cats, livestock and rats because of their powerful prey drive.
There temperament is also considered bad although in most cases, if the owner knows how to train the dog and the characteristics it should have, the problem of temperament should not exist at all. A dog that shows bad temperament and high human aggression should not be bred at all.
These are not just dogs to be kept at home by any person who would love a dog for a pet. The dogs have a lot of power and need exercise to ensure their muscles and energy, are put to some work. Without that, the dog can find other things to do with its energy which might not be pleasant. They are however intelligent and love people. If not trained on good manners early enough (when they are still young), they might get used to lying on people’s laps as big as they are.
Pit bull dogs have been labeled as dangerous by the media, something which most people, who breed it, consider a misunderstanding. They have no aggression towards human except in a few cases, and when they are mistreated and bred for fighting. They are outgoing, confident and desire love and attention from the humans.
Red nose and Blue Nose pit bull dogs
There are different types of pit bull dogs classified by the color of their noses. There are; the red nose pitbulls, the blue nose pitbulls and the black nose pitbulls. These dogs are not different from each other except by the color of their nose. At one time, the red nose bull dominated in fights and gained most people’s attention, and it is said that some breeders took advantage of this dominance to promote the blue nose pit bull at the time. Both blue and red nose pit bulls are just American pit bull terriers.
Red nose pit bulls vs Blue nose pit bulls
A lot of information about pit bulls shows that they are homeless because of the breeding programs currently adapted, and the wrong perception about their level of aggression. It is not clear the reason as to why breeders focus on blue, black or red pit bull colors, but it may be because of their dominance. Most breeders focus on appearance, and not on the physical health and dependability of their temperament. Breeding these dogs for fights is also another detrimental factor to the breed. Pit bulls are working dogs, with a lot of physical strength, determination, courage and friendliness for humans. They should not be mistaken for vicious dogs with high aggression towards humans.
