Are pitbulls mean dogs by nature?
I don't believe that pit bulls are mean by nature by any means, I believe that they are what YOU make them. I have raised pit bulls for the last decade and I have never had one turn on me or my family. I have raised pits that came from really abusive homes and puppies from the swap meet. Pit bulls are very big hearted dogs that have gotten a very bad rap. If the owner does not train them right then of course like any animal or HUMAN, they have no choice but to run on instinct, which in most cases is survival of the fittest. In these cases it is not the dogs fault at all but instead the OWNERS fault for not teaching and training this animal the rules and for sure not allowing that pit to be spoiled. hope this helps you.

Usually it hasn't been socialized properly towards other dogs. Other reasons would be it's scared, territorial, or dominant. Some dog's just don't like the company of others, …but it is highly uncommon, since dog's are pack animals.
Pitbulls, like any dog, could be good or mean although, pitbulls most of the times are docile dogs that would rather be mean towards other animal but well trained, these dogs …obey the master.
Are you so ignorant that you think all pitbulls are eman. Do you think they are born that way? Or do you KNOW that they are trained to be that way. I hate it when people are s…o scared of pitbulls! They are nice, lovely lil creatures. They are just a type of dog gangsters train to be bad!
If u mean how to get a pitbull mean you CAN'T. are u asking that to join DOGFIGHTING. If so I heard that 90% of people that are in dogfighting are arested.
You should not get it mean This is not something that you should even be contemplating with this breed of dog. First and for most this breed can be dangerous if not trained …properly. In my experience with the pit bulls they don't want to be mean at all. People make them mean, they just want to love and be loved by their owners. Owners who want to make them mean are asking for trouble, not just with the dog but maybe with the law as well should that dog bite someone. Please for your dogs sake please don't try to do this to him or her she already has a bad name just for her breed. If any of us know about a dog fighting arena it is our duty to our dog and its breed to turn it in to the authority's and stop this blood bath of a sport that only kills this beautiful breed. "How do get my pit bull mean?" Unbelievable it's people like you that give The Breed a bad name. Even if you are looking for protection you don't need to force aggression. They can read your emotions and if you are a loving positive master, pit bulls will do incredible things to please you or "protect you".
According to the American Temperament Test Society, Pit Bulls pass their test with flying colors. In fact, the Pit Bull scores a little over 85% which is better than many dog… breeds that people consider to be friendly or nice. To put that score into perspective, it is better than the Beagle, Cocker Spaniel, Collie, Golden Retriever, Pointer, Pomeranian, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Vizsla, and most other dog breeds actually. The average score of the general dog breed population is only around 77% so the Pit Bull scores much better than the average. The ATTS test focuses on and measures different aspects of temperament such as stability, shyness, aggressiveness, and friendliness as well as the dog's instinct for protectiveness towards its handler and/or self-preservation in the face of a threat. The success of Pit Bulls in this series of tests proves they are not naturally mean or violent.
Tell me you state and I will let you know.
No, they are really great dogs that are usually good with children,but they are very misunderstood. They were actually called 'NannyDogs' along with the Newfoundland
Yes they make great family dogs. Contact one of the Colbys directly for info.
The American Pitbull teriier is one breed and the Bullmastiff is another. Both I imagine can swim
Russia has animal cruelty laws but dog fighting is not illegal by law. In Japan, only in Tokio dog fighting is banned. These days, countries that had dog fighting had illegali…zed this practice.
All dogs have muscles, otherwise they wouldn't be able to move.
In Dog Breeds
Pitbulls are known by several names, such as the American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, and Pitbull Terrier. They are not a mix…, they are a breed of dog.
Something someone came up with to make a buck, off of exploitation of a helpless, animal.....Chuck.
In Pit Bulls
Pit bulls have an unfair reputation for being very mean, but it really depends on how they are raised. It's true that some are just born with a mean streak, but I know of seve…ral people who have very very very sweet pit bulls. If you treat them right then they'll do the same.
This dream probably refers to some criticism you have received. The dream presents a literal image of the idea that someone is constantly "barking" at you.
