Pit Bull Terrier found stupider than the average poodle

Pit Bull Terriers should be banned from any who do not know how to manage an animal bred for fighting.

That should be almost everyone.

These animals are bred “killing machines” are “not predictable” and “dangerous in the wrong hands”. Especially of those who are stupider and not smarter than average which is dumber to.

That would be more stupid than accepted, making for extra stupid or stupider, a requirement for allowing these animals to be legally purchased, owned or sold.

Pit Bulls are bred for fighting and killing other dogs.

I say ban the American Pit Bull Terrier even though,
The Romans ,the Greeks, British, Spanish, as well as French have used dogs for fighting purposes, dating back hundreds or thousands of years.’

  2. It’s not that their all bad, the breed was bred for fighting other dogs.That’s the only reason this breed exists.
    They must be controlled, kept out of the hands of amateurs and made illegal to sell or own so really the breed must be euthenised.
    This is the only breed I know that is specifically for fighting.
    Do bad about Peetie but there is no excuse for idiots having these dogs out on the streets.

  3. this blog is based off ignorance and nothing else. for one thing the bull terrier is a different dog then the pitbull and they were not bread for fighting other dogs they were bread for fighting other animals but there is a big difference. Also they were used as hunting dogs, they are similar to all terriers. I have met a lot more other terriers that are more aggressive.

  4. Bull terrier is the base breed the pit bull doesn’t rank in the top one hundred for smarts, that’s why you see bull terrier and not pit bull.
    They were, yes but now they are used strictly for fighting other dogs because that was their intention for being bred in the first place, fighting.That’s why they are PIT bull terriers.
    They should be euthanised as a breed.

  9. ok for 1 not ALL pit bulls are dangerious. my family has 4 and they dont fight eachother and they are lovers i have never ever seen one of my pits even growl at someone. not even a stranger. its all in how you raise them i agree that if someone doesnt know what the breed CAN do then they should not get 1 but if they know about the breed and what they were actually bred for then they have the right to get 1 if they can raise it properlly. dont punish the breed for what SOME of them in the past have done. just because some of them attak ppl doesnt mean they all do.. i have 2 males and 2 females all unfixed and they dont fight eachother and they dont fight with any of my other 6 dogs. the other dogs are hunting dogs except my moms dog she is a border collie and none of them fight. they dont even fight with my dads 2 Rotts and his 2 Dobermans. so they are not ALL mean. its all in how you raise them. you have to socialize them and not keep them couped up all day or else yeah you will have an unrully dog that may bight someone or could turn on you because it would be frustraited

  14. Pitts are the most loyal dogs ive ever seen and ive owned about 30 different breeds of dogs so i think whoever wrote this just has issues against them because they failed to traing the dog right, in this case you should not be allowed to have one… I got a 100% American Pitt and its above average size for his age by about 40lbs and ALL MUSCLE and if trained as a fighter he will take many dogs\people or w\e down without a problem. If you train your dog right they will listen… Pitts are the smartest dogs in sense of knowing right from wrong if u train them right. I know atleast 10 other people with pitts…. dogs never attacked anyone and they can walk the dog without a leash threw crowds of people and the dog will not leave the owners side unless you tell it to go. They are real protective of its owner and people it knows, i was with my friend who owns the father of my dog and we were walking around when 2 stray dogs ran up to us and tried attacking us and the dog, the dog just sat there until the other dogs made a move by trying to attack us and the dog at which point he told the dog to “get em” the pitt killed both dogs, they were mixed breeds not sure what kind exactly but the pitt wouldnt make the first move…. VERY LOYAL if you know what your doing… so dont diss on pitts because you failed….. you probally abused the dog when it was a pup or somthing for it not to be the same case for you. They are a little hardheaded as puppys and they have there a personality almost like humans. My dog wont even eat a plate of human food off the floor unless you say its ok, and the only reason dogs bred for fighting are so stubbourn isbecuase people imbreed them which makes them more retarded and thats where they loose there smarts. You need to atleast know the dog isnt imbreed…. any imbreed dog is going to be retarded

  15. Anyone that could be so stupid and ignorant to the things going on around them in the world today deserves to be eaten by the pit bulls they have destroyed. Continue to live your life in fear and prejudice. I know I’m on the right side the side for life.

  16. i believe your comments are pathetic. its all about the up bring of a dog that makes a fighter a fighter. If a lab was brought up 2 fight i have no doubt it would its only because pits have the power and will to fight that they are so cruely used. If dogs are brought up within a family and also by the right owners then there would never be any trouble with them .

  18. in my opinion pit bulls are naturally fighting dogs, only well informed handlers should have them. handlers/owners should also b licensed along with other “fighting” breeds. all dogs should be required to have muzzels by law when out on the street, then no difference for any breed, it aint gona b biting any1. seems harsh but it’d sure reduce dog bite victims, and there are many different muzzles available on the market to suit requirements.

    Comment by rachael | September 6, 2007

  19. Stating that the pitbull was bred for dogfighting is right. All dogs can fight. Pitbull style dogs are bred to be stronger than any dog in a “dogfight”. In doing so the pitbull was not made more vicious than other breeds but, instead more “driven”. A pitbull commits 100% of itself to what it is doing. Pain, fear and other inhibitions are irrelevant.

    Most other breeds still posses the wolf’s instinct for self preservation. Pitbulls are bred for “gameness” they are wagging their tails during a dogfight. This makes them special; topping in at 60 lbs (real pitbuls are smaller than 60 lbs), they can outlast, and with their jaw power (no such shit as lockjaw), overpower larger opponents. Protection sports enthusiasts value drive as high drive dogs excel in dogsports. The pitbull is a unique package of functional physique and extreme drive in a small loyal dog. Their power is their curse……. only IN THE HANDS OF IDIOTS. A good anology is a GUN. Irresponsible, stupid and ignorant people should not own guns or pitbulls.

    A pitbull is a highly sociable dog that is relatively small and pound for pound extremely powerful. TRAINING is crucial; if someone (the owner) can control the dog (any breed) then that person can control a pitbull. Infact, imagine a dog that commits a 100% of itself to a “sit-stay” command; it could never move let alone attack somthing.

  25. I think it shows how stupid you actually are, because if you look at temperment tests. The collie, the number one on your rank chart, scores much lower than the pit bull. As a matter of fact a collie bit off part of my nephews ear and cut up his face and nose. What I find ironic about that is……Lassie was a collie! He has been around my pit bull and he can climb on him and do what ever to him and he just lets it go. The reason for that is because they are trained to be aggressive not bred that way. I have never laid a hand in anger on my pit and he cowers if I raise my hand to him. I think you should own one before you bash them.

NO

  29. Has anyone else noticed that the people who are ‘for’ these killing machines can’t spell, and not only that, but the grammar is as dangerous as the dogs they own as a status symbol?
    Now I’m all for the freedom of ownership of any dog, but only in the hands of those smart enough to to read and write.
    Do you have to be totally thick to own one?
    Have a look through some of the previous blogs on this subject, and then decide for yourselves.

    Comment by stu | October 7, 2007

  30. pit bulls were bred to fight DOGS not ppl! Therefore they are not naturally dangrous to ppl! Infact back in the day when dog fighting was a complmented sport, if a dog ever showed aggression towards a person they had thier nuts cut ON THE SPOT, that way the aggression towards ppl could never be rebred. Some ppl need to do more research before they make themselves look ignorent.

  31. The Bull terrier Is a completely Separate breed! They are not the base breed as Blanks57™ said! People that are completely uneducated and that don’t know what the hell they are talking about should shut up! The majority of those “tests” are done by private organizations such as the AKC which does not recognize the American Pitbull terrier as a breed! But they also do not recognize 300+ other breeds! It is fine that someone “dislikes” a certain breed but to run your mouth like you even have a clue what you are talking about is ridiculous! There are so many different versions on why and how the breed came about but I do agree that the breed is not for everyone but to say that NO one should own them is stupid!

    Did you realize that it is the humans that created these “breeds” and that it is people that created and continue to create the problems!?!?! I personally own a “pitbull”, by far he is own of the most loyal dedicated dogs I have ever had! Loyal not meaning he is going to protect the house but meaning he will do his commands when told! He doesn’t bark, growl etc. I had more aggression from my toy poodles! So with what the majority of these uneducated people say We should ban toy poodles, because they growled, and barked! Seriously, some of you “pitbull haters” need to get a life! How about your desired “labradoodle” or your “cockapoo”?!?!? They should be next! Why breed this dog that you believe is “hypoallergenic” when you honestly have about a 50/50 chance of them being hypoallergenic! And the majority of these types of dogs are coming from puppymills!

    And for those of you that support PETA…..did you realize they are for banning ALL DOMESTIC DOGS!?!?!? That means your little pom., your poodle, your lab, etc could all be taken away!

    So for those of you that would like more education on the “pitbull” Check out this link: or or or

    Just realize that as simple as it is to ban a “pitbull” it will make it even simpler to ban any other dog!
    So Get educated people! I agree that there needs to be stricter rules for ANY dog being breed or sold!!!!

  32. What I would really like to know offhand is whether or not you have the balls to call yourself any kind of dog lover. But I have a different opinion on the matter. Being an owner of a Pit myself, I only have one thing to say; that dog is smarter than any dog I’ve seen. And just because he is a Pit, does not mean he does not have potential. And the idea of banning them is not only ridiculous, it’s selfish. The dog IS what you make it, so blame it on the owner, not the dog. Because they can be just as playful as a Poodle. In the end, it all comes down to the mentality that you mold your dog to. It’s one way of telling somebody’s character don’t you think. Just think about the fact that you are ONE person and just because you happen to have some kind of sick, almost political grudge against these dogs doesn’t mean that you are going to change this world. Unless you want to battle it out with the numerous numbers of Pit owners for the rest of your life. Well, you’ve heard my piece. Thank you, and have a nice damn day…Oh yea, and before you run off talking about how dumb “Pitbull Terriers” are, you should stop and take a second to think about how utterly ridiculous you sound. I mean, you’re wasting your time degrading something other than your own species, don’t you just sound valiant. Ha.

    Comment by Dara | November 28, 2007

  33. So yeah I agree that a lot of people don’t handle pitbulls well but it’s not the dogs that are stupid it’s the people. I’ve raised 5 pits and only one of them has attacked somebody. She bit a man trying to break into my house. Pitbulls are extremely loyal dogs and as long as they aren’t abused or trained to fight, are some of the best out.

    Statistically, Poodles are more instinctively vicious then Pitbulls. I’ve encountered many pits and only a few poodles. Never been bitten by a pit, but almost had my face ripped off by a poodle at 6 years old. Same happened to my friend when she was 3. Almost took out her eye.

    So I STRONGLY disagree with this whole page I think its a bunch of bullshit but everyone is entitled to their opinion even if it is a load of crap.

  35. People from Iraq, Iran etc. are known to be killers and children are breed to be the same. So if you think pit-bulls should be killed-off why not just kill all children as well to prevent possible murders. Honestly pit-bulls only have the possibility of attacking usually when provoked or threatened. People think it out and just do it. Leave the dogs alone and go after the stupid people that own them.

  40. People may breed these dogs to fight, but ‘fighting’ is not a characteristic. It’s their terrier tenacity that makes them a good SELCTION as a fighting dog then the right (or wrong, depending on your perspective) TRAINING makes them fight well.

    That’s the confusion that all of you ‘bad dog’ people have. It’s not that they’re born/bred fighters – no dog is. They’re born tenacious like some people are and then it’s how the owners channel that – or don’t channel it. If a dog isn’t socialized to be friendly with other dogs and people it will be fearful and act aggressively – this is what happens when well meaning, but ignorant owners get these type of dogs. If the dog is ENCOURAGED to fight, though, that’s what it will do. You could do the same with a Lab or Cocker Spaniel. But these dogs don’t have the same sort of drive and tenacity nor physical build so you won’t get a ‘good’ fighter.

    So it’s not that the Pit Bull is a vicious dog. It’s a tenacious dog. It’s the people who channel that. No different than a loaded gun. If properly cared for there’s nothing to fear, but if the people who own it aren’t responsible…

    So I don’t think it matters where the Pit Bulls rank on the stupid chart – it’s the PEOPLE you gotta worry about.

    Pit Bulls are “the sweetest dogs” blah blah blah, may be true, but how mean dogs kill people???
    I don’t mean injure in self defence or a percieved threat, I mean KILL?
    Get a brain you people, you are playing with fire if you own a Pit Bull.That is likely why you own one anyway or to guard your “trailer”.

  42. if your going to explicit information about pitbulls maybe you should get your facts straight and take some of your time and research your information because obviously your nothing but a media junky who only watches the news and feeds of their info. This is just touching the surface:

    MYTH: All Pit Bulls are mean and vicious.

    It is reported on temperament tests conducted by the American Temperament Test Society that Pit Bulls had a passing rate of 82% or better — compared to only 77% of the general dog population.

    These temperament tests consist of putting a dog through a series of unexpected situations, some involving strangers.

    Any signs of unprovoked aggression or panic in these situations result in failure of the test. The achievement of Pit Bulls in this study disproves that they are inherently aggressive to people. (Please visit

    Comment by Lana | January 18, 2008

  45. You’ve got a lot of misinformation in your emotional diatribe. But first lets discuss where you and I are in agreement:

    A “properly” bred Pit Bulldog is potentially deadly/dangerous to other dogs. So, keep them separated from other dogs. Besides, there are other breeds that share this trait: ALL working terrier breeds.

    I also wish less people would find the need to own one. It’s like giving Porsche 911 GT3s to everyone on the public road. The result: serious accidents. If the persons don’t understand the natural inclinations and instincts of the dog then they should NOT own one.

    Okay, I’m a HUGE fan of the “fighting bulldog”. I once owned a gamebred dog. He was utterly fantastic: wouldn’t hurt a human unless directly challenged (a stupid thing to do, anyway) or directly threatened a family member or ANY child in his presence. Would kill a large aggressive dog for “general purpose” (hey, he was specifically bred for it so we kept him apart from other pets). He wasn’t worth a wet sock in terms of a protection or guard dog – and I’m A OK with that. He was a companion or buddy to me and I don’t like the idea of a bulldog attacking a human. Besides, the gamebred (i.e., strains specifically bred for dogfighting) are no more a threat to a human than a child is a threat to an adult. It’s like saying that coonhounds (since they are aggressive to coons) show the same aggressiveness to humans. They don’t. So unless you’re a canid or some fur-bearing critter you will not have an issue with a “proper” (i.e., gamebred) Pit Bulldog.

    Now the majority of the “Pit Bulls” we see are not PROPERLY bred at all – much to the chagrin of their owners. Many ignorant breeders are breeding them solely for confirmation and are starting to look like tanks. They may be powerful but they are not agile. What their personalities are like now is more like any other canid: predatory, territorial. The problem is that before they focused all of their aggression towards other animals. Now, without the specific testing and breeding program (which is a bit cruel anyways) we are left with an extremely courageous, exceedingly athletic dog that has traits like most other dogs: territorial, protective, somewhat distrustful of strangers. No thanks.

    I don’t at all agree with the “intelligence” thing: they are stubborn not stupid; the two are not to be confused. A dumb dog will die in the pit; the best are bred to the best so it’s unlikely a Pit Bulldog will be especially dumb. The probability of any individual of the breed being stubborn is, however, quite high.

    I’m not likely to convince any of those whose minds are made up so I’ll just “go away.”
