One thing that infuriates me to no end is the "FREE TO GOOD HOME" ads. Pit bulls are always on there and people many times give them away. What is wrong with you people that do that? Do you not know what people do with pit bulls? Have you been living under a rock? Putting free is bad enough for any breed because researchers will gobble them up like a kid in a candy store. But to put any type of pit bull on their warrants much more trouble! People will pose as nice families and then fight them or use them as bait dogs for other pits to practice on. You are this dog friend and family and this is what you do? Those people wait for ignorant people and they watch like hawks for the free ones. Once they get them god only knows what will happen to them.
Everyone likes money so why not charge 50$ bucks to help out the dog. Plus it shows how serious the person is if they are willing to pay, and most are willing to pay a measly 50$ for a dog they want to love. Don't be fooled woman pose on there as well as men. Your dog loves you and you owe it to him to use your head. We don't live in dream world of butterflies and cupcakes here people so please get with it!!!
Lowered head with flat ears
Low crouched body
Tail between legs
Showing teeth ( No growling though, this is also called smiling and is not the same as a dominant dogs does when showing teeth.)
Licking masters face and chin
Rolling on belly
Submissive peeing is the dog showing you "I submit to you". If you punish the dog by yelling or hitting the problem will get worse because the dog will try harder to submit to you. You have to ignore it and help build dogs confidence. Try these tips for building confidence.
Don't yell or hit ever
Don't walk at dog while staring in the eyes
Don't stand over dog
Get on their level
Stay calm and use a calm voice
Ignore submissive behavior by walking away as soon as they do it
If dog sticks to ground pick up and put on feet and bring out tail from legs
Don't comfort them while they are being submissive
Submissive urination will usually stop if you follow these rules. You just need to help build them up and give them confidence in themselves. Never ever rub their nose thier messes!

I strongly disagree with BSL. I think its an outrage! It breaks my heart to see many good owners having to move or get rid of there beloved pet. The bad owners will just ignore the laws anyways and continue to have these dogs. The good owners are the ones that feel it the most, because they love their pets and are forced to get rid of them or they can even be put down. This blows my mind and I cant tell you how angry this makes me. What do these families tell their kids that are so attached to the family dog?
The media plays a large role in BSL. Any dog with a big head and sort hair is called a pit bull and many times they are not pit bulls at all. Here is the thing, pit bull is NOT a breed of dog. Its a general term used to describe many breeds of dogs that have similar characteristics. The pit bull covers many breeds like the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, Bulldogs, and in many cases the Presa Canario and Dogo Argentino because they are so similar looking. So if any one of these dogs hurts some one they are just called a pit bull and it appears that they are always on the news. Well when you group a bunch of breeds together then yes it will seem they are more dangerous because there is so many. If you grouped together the dogs in the Working group together the stats will be higher because you are dealing with many more breeds. See how that works? There has been many times when after the media reports a "pit bull" biting they find out it wasn't even a pit bull at all. Many crosses of different breeds can look like a pit bull. Boxer, Mastiff, Rhodesian Ridge back mixes can fool many people because they can look so close to a pit bull.
The bottom line is we need to fight BSL. Good owners should not have their rights taking away because of the bad deeds of other worthless people.
