Pit Bulls are one of the most misunderstood dog breeds in the world. Whether you already know and have a pit bull or you have not had the pleasure of meeting one still, but understanding and sharing the facts about them can save this dog’s lives.
I am writing this article to bust the myths and raise awareness about pit bulls, a maligned “dog” that often bears the brunt of dated.
The myth about Pit Bull’s Aggression
If a Pit Bull is aggressive towards other dogs, then he will also be aggressive towards humans.
First thing, we must know that dog-aggression and human-aggression both are two different aspects. We should not be confused. Pit bulls love people if they are not trained to attack. In fact, they are the most loving, dedicated and friendly dog companion.
Locking Jaw Myth
Pit Bull has a locking jaw that lets him bite down hard and do not let go. This dog can exert more force with his bite than any other dog breed.
No, any physical mechanism let them to “lock” Pit Bull’s jaws. Whatever these dogs do, they do it with a great deal of encourage. This is the trait that can make it look like they have a locking jaw when he bites down on something and is known not to leave it.
The myth of Public Safety
One legend has jumped from the dog, saying that this is a dangerous dog breed and can pose a severe threat to public safety.
It is not true; this family pet is treated as unfairly because of misinformation and stereotypes. There is the need for responsible ownership to make his well-behaved and loving.
The myth says that Pit Bull is not a Family Dog
Pit Bull is not as good as a family dog, and this is the reason that he is mainly found in shelters.
Pit Bulls are very famous, some people are over breeding them, and others are neglecting to spray their dogs resulting in numbers of litters. These two factors are the main reason for the increasing numbers of bulldogs.
Myth on Fatal Attacks
Number of fatal attacks done by Pit Bull is higher than another dog breed
Pit Bulls are a dog with a different variety, many dog attacks are incorrectly understood Pit Bulls, because of general perception of the dog as aggressive and attacker.
Understanding the certain myths created about particular dogs can lead to innocent dogs losing their lives. Hopefully, the increasing awareness and the National Pit Bull Awareness day will also have a positive impact on the people of those who are happy to see sure dogs lose their lives.
