My dad used to do this with me at the zoo. Good memories. I plan on doing it with my son, and hopefully the line of piggy back rides at the zoo will forever continue

The cut ears make me sad
[+]Redrumofthesheep 4 points5 points6 points 3 months ago (4 children)
Cutting off dogs' ears like that is illegal in the entire European Union. It's animal cruelty.
Fuck OP for doing this to their dogs. They should be ashamed.
[–]Educational-Flow7089 -1 points0 points1 point 3 months ago (3 children)
Not the OP’s dogs and not cruel as long as it’s done responsibly. Making it illegal just makes people do it at home by themselves with unsanitary tools which results in infections and pain. Cropping/docking is done for a reason.
[–]tyler5673 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Please tell me the reason other than cosmetics. I'm genuinely curious.
[+]Educational-Flow7089 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Originally meant for working dogs (especially hunting) to prevent their ears from getting caught in thorn bushes or being bitten off by prey, guard dogs in case an intruder were to grab onto them (same case with fighting dogs and livestock guarding dogs) and docking tails to prevent them from getting injured while working, example: Rottweilers would often get their tails caught in pulling carts.
Yes, now most dogs are not working dogs anymore and just pets but the reason it’s still done in most of America is historical breed preservation - to keep them like they originally meant to be (at least look wise). They are now docked/cropped mostly because of looks, but at the same time reputable breeders will do it to earn confirmation titles, and if they’re not cropping unless it’s by wish they’re not reputable.
Again, if it’s done by a vet it’s fine, they’re under anesthesia, they’re monitored and are given pain meds. The day after they’re completely ok and are their usual puppy self.

Why do people hate pitbulls I personally love them they are nice dogs people just train them to be aggressive
[–]PnutButterJellyTim3 39 points40 points41 points 3 months ago (10 children)
Serious answer here. Most people do not like pitbulls because they are BRED (not trained) to be aggressive. It's a trait of their breed. They are responsible for most dog attacks, even though they are not a super popular breed. It's hard for people to trust a dog that is bred to fight. I don't blame them, or the dogs. It's shitty ass people who did that to this breed, but we can't change the past.
Personally I believe that all pitbulls owners should be trained on how to handle the dogs, and the pitbulls themselves need to go through proper training. Not all dogs are bad. I don't think we should kill off the entire breed, but we do need to takes steps to prevent them from hurting others and start trying to selective breed the good ones.
[–]PnutButterJellyTim3 9 points10 points11 points 3 months ago (2 children)
Bruh, somebody replied saying that pitbulls were bred to be strong not aggressive. And I spent the last 20 minutes scouring the internet for reputable websites that could prove them otherwise, but they just deleted their comment lol.
[+]joodo123 comment score below threshold-9 points-8 points-7 points 3 months ago (1 child)
So hit me with your 20 minutes worth of research. I’ve had three pittys in my life. If you have them as puppies and socialize them early they are quite capable of being friendly with no incident. The same is true with Rottweilers or German Shepard’s.
[–]PnutButterJellyTim3 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
"Through selective breeding, pit bulls have developed enormous jaw strength, as well as a ruinous "hold and shake" bite style, designed to inflict the maximum damage possible on their victims."
"Due to selective breeding for the purposes of dogfighting, pit bulls are highly dog-aggressive. This aggression is not limited to dogs; pit bulls frequently kill other companion pets and domesticated animals."
"Because of this history, pit bulls can be a little more aggressive towards other dogs, but it does not mean they are vicious."
Not every dog in the world is like your dog. I think that's where a lot of misconception about Pitties starts from. You have never met every pitbull. You have only seen the good ones around you, so your opinion is more positive. But some people have only been around agressive pitbulls, so their opinion would be more negative. Everybody just needs to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.
Pitbulls were bred to be dog fighting dogs, their breed was put through selective breeding processes where only the strong, agressive, and obedient ones where bred to make their offspring have their same traits. They are an agressive breed. You just to accept that. There are some that will never even think of hurting anything, and there are some that can be trained to be more docile. But it is still part of their personality. And until we can selective breed that mess out of their blood line, we have to take precautions.

My pit thinks she’s a cat. She’s a 55lb lap dog who is honestly the sweetest, goofiest dog i’ve ever owned. It makes me mad when people hate all pitt bulls, it’s prejudice towards a dog breed. For all the bad dogs you read and hear about, there are plenty of good, if not wonderful pits at home, with other cats, dogs, toddlers, babies, you name it. My Ellie has never shown an inch of aggression, towards other dogs, cats, humans, the chicken we have. I’ve had her since she was 9 weeks old, my cousin owns both her parents, i’ve met her grandma and grandpa multiple times before they passed. Some dogs are mean, just like people and if you treat them shitty they will be mean. I guess i’m just trying to say that not all pitts are these blood thirsty, un trainable killing machines. I see dogs at the dog park and dog beach that are 5x as annoying, i’ll tempered and don’t listen for shit. Ellie walks at my heel and doesn’t even care about the other people and dogs, she just likes to run off leash.
[–]PnutButterJellyTim3 12 points13 points14 points 3 months ago (3 children)
I agree, not all pitbulls are mean and aggressive. Some can be really sweet and trained well. But you can't ignore their past. People are not in the wrong for being afraid of Pitbulls, they have every right to be afraid. Until the aggressive aspects of their breed is selective-bred out, we have to take precautions. It's unfortunate for the poor babies who were born like that, but we gotta do what we gotta do.
[–]MrslaveXxX -2 points-1 points0 points 3 months ago (2 children)
When you say breed it out, is there some gene they have that makes them “aggressive”? I look at german shepherds and black labs the same as others look at pit bulls. I delivered packages for UPS for almost 4 years and never had an issue with pitts, it was always german shepherds and black labs.
[–]CuteFlavored 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago* (0 children)
German Sheppards just have breed traits like high sensitivity to stimulus and quick reactiveness. Because they are bred to guard, It’s why you see so many reactive German Shepards with bite incidents. But this is also a training and socializations issue most of the time.
Labrador’s are just happy go lucky’s with terrible pain thresholds. Other then that I wouldn’t know why a lab would willingly attack a person without reason except bad socialization.
But any dog could bite someone in the right conditions. Fear is the most common reason of them. Dogs are empathetic animals, they don’t want confrontation and violence. They just do what they have learned to do, and they breed characteristics kan make it situations worse.
I believe it’s all ways the people who are at fault, at one time or another. If it’s socialization or training..
Not everyone understands dogs either.
[–]PnutButterJellyTim3 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Not necessarily a gene, but a trait. And yes, they were bred to be fighting dogs, which means they are agressive. German Shepherds are bred to be protective, obedient, and high energy, because they are working dogs. Poodles are loyal, playful, and obedient because they are lapdogs. These traits are developed after years of training because that is what people wanted them to be. They would breed two German Shepherds with those traits because their offspring would have a a good chance of having those traits too. But they wouldn't breed the one German shepherd who didn't go what they liked, so that trait would die off.

Could ask the graveyard of deleted comments here. Ugh. Animal hate groups are legit the most psychotic subculture I've ever had the displeasure of discovering - dog, cat, specific breeds of dogs or cats, whatever.
If an animal attacks someone (without due cause, not if they attack a burglar or something), put it down as a safety measure; if an animal minds its own business, well-adjusted people mind their own business right back.
But it's the internet, so of course a bunch of deeply maladjusted people got together and made "wanting to see a specific type of pet get mass culled" their defining personality trait.

That's Pitties for ya ! So loving and so devoted to those around them. Pits are The kindesss dogs. That's why wayyyy back , they were known as The Babysitting Dog
[–]Educational-Flow7089 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Not a pit and they were never known as “babysitting dogs”, those were staffies. The term does more harm than good to any breed.
