Pit Bulls have an image problem. If youíve never been around Pit Bulls, you may think they are bloodthirsty man-eaters on the prowl for their next meal. If youíve lived with one you know they are, indeed, on the prowl for their next meal Ė but they plan to get it by conning you out of your meal by doing something irresistibly cute! A breed of satin and steel, Pit Bulls are a mixture of softness and strength, an uncanny canine combination of fun, foolishness, and serious business.
If you think Pit Bulls should be purged from the face of the earth, Pit Bulls For Dummies will enlighten you. Perhaps you're curious about this breed and want to know what Pit Bulls are really like; if so, this book is for you. Who else needs this handy reference?
*Smart people who realize that all breeds have good and bad points
*New (and not so new) owners who need help with training
*Owners looking for just the right veterinarian
*Potential owners looking to adopt from a breed-rescue group
*Pit Bull owners who need help identifying Pit Bull health problems
Too many dog care books are filled with unrealistic scare tactics that would cause anyone to just give up, while others are filled with hand-me-down dog lore that has no basis in reality. You won't find any of that in Pit Bulls For Dummies. Here's a sampling of the handy information you'll find in this essential guide:
*Understanding the Pit Bull's origins and characteristics
*Caring for a puppy or older Pit Bull
*Keeping your dog healthy with diet and exercise
*Dealing with bad behavior: Biting, barking, jumping, and more
*Training your Pit Bull in the basics such as sit, stay, heel, and come
*Understanding Pit Bull body language
*Helping your dog become a social animal
Owning a Pit Bull isnít easy, but thatís not because of the dogs. A special commitment to the breed and a special dog owner are needed. Pit Bulls are pretty special dogs, and they have to prove it every day.
The dog was bred first to bait bulls and bears. When baiting bulls was deemed inhumane, ratting (a sport where a number of rats were placed in a pit for a specified time with the dog) and dog fighting became more popular. The APBT was used in both sports, and its prevalence in being put in pits with rats led to "pit" being added to its name. With time, the dogs became more commonly domesticated due to their loyalty, loving and gentle nature with their owners. In America, farmers and ranchers used their APBTs for protection, as catch dogs for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt, and to drive livestock. The dog was used during World War I and World War II as a way of delivering messages on the battlefield.
Once a popular family dog in the United States (such as the kids' pet dog in the Our Gang comedies), the American Pit Bull Terrier's popularity began to decline following World War II in favor of other breeds.
The APBT is a breed that is loyal to friends and family, and is generally friendly towards strangers. Many have strong instincts to chase and seize cats and other fleeing creatures, including deer and livestock (prey drive). As with any dog breed, proper training and socialization at an early age is a must. According to the UKC, "aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed and highly undesirable."
American Pit Bull Terriers generally have a lot of energy and benefit from exercise and stimulation to channel their energy properly and avoid becoming frustrated, bored, or destructive.
This brought a much needed smile to my face...

This was originally sent to you Matt, but since you are choosing to ignore it, I will now address it to Chris himself and post this everywhere I can...
TO CHRIS ROCK:
SO ironic that you are talking about your poor, scalding scalp, and how it burned from all those chemicals...when you are completely clueless when it comes to how those innocent dogs suffered while being tortured by Michael Vick!
We were on the front page of Variety today and the timing is unfortunate for it comes the same day I am forced to write this letter!
Richard and I established Pryor's Planet, a non-profit, before he passed, for the purpose of rescuing and rehabilitating homeless and abused or neglected dogs, so they can go into loving, forever homes! PRYOR'S PLANET is an all breed rescue: which means, we rescue everything from little white, fluffy dogs to Pitbulls.
We currently have 40 dogs we are caring for while they await their forever homes.
Among these 40 dogs, Pryor's Planet has 7 Pitbulls (actually American Staffordshire Terriers), all of whom are receiving care and training while they await their forever homes, at great expense I might add! Each one is a sweet and affectionate dog who was mistreated, or dumped or neglected all because of their breed! These are sentient, thinking beings with real feelings.
SOMEONE PUT THIS ON MY FACE BOOK PAGE THIS MORNING:
Chris asks, "What did Vick do? Pit bulls aren't real dogs anyway." If he doesn't understand at this point then I guess he never will. If you're taking Vick's side, it's unforgivable. This is as bad as if a white guy on a 50's talk show defended killing a black man. "I mean, it's not like he's a real human. What did he do?"
Regarding those comments Chris: "What did Michael Vick do? Pitbulls aren't even real dogs!"
What Michael Vick did was torture, drown, electrocute and murder several dogs all for fun and for profit! He went to prison for FELONY ANIMAL CRUELTY! That's what he did!
Because of your insensitive and ignorant remarks that you made on The Jay Leno Show, The David Letterman show and various public forums and websites; I have notified my attorney and Bill Condon directly that I don't want you, Chris Rock, associated with the Richard Pryor Bio Pic---UNLESS, you find a way to retract and apologize for these comments in some public way.
Clearly this is part of your latest stand-up routine which frankly, would not make Richard laugh!
Richard knew you and I know you, Chris, you are not from the streets, nor are you a country bumpkin...so to whom are you trying to appeal with these outrageous remarks? These type of comments only foment and encourage abuse and misunderstanding of this breed as well as actual dog fighting. Kind of like Rush Limbaugh does for the crazy right!
Do you want to become the Rush Limbaugh to the rescue community?
I have personally been involved in saving Pits from fight rings in Texas and California and in fact have one in my personal pack who was used as a 'bait dog' in a fight ring...a sweet, young puppy who is now a sweet adult dog!
Below is a video link to a dog we rescued from Bakersfield Shelter, abused and starved...he is the sweetest dog!

Is this a Pit Bull?
Bull Terrier, German Shepherd, Australian Shepherd, Collie, Greyhound, Saluki and Siberian Husky mix.
Maybe this one is...
Parsons Russell Terrier, Boston Terrier and Bulldog mix.
For sure, this must be a Pit Bull.
Mastiff, Scottish Terrier, Boston Terrier, Bull Terrier, Bulldog and Pekingese mix.
This little girl was a mystery mutt...
Boston Terrier, Great Dane, Lab, Chihuahua, Greyhound and Mastiff mix.
All of these dogs were DNA tested for breed mix. No Pit Bull in any of them.
A Journey on the road with my buddy Spirit!
"It is a long story!!! Actually has 300 chapters today as Spirit, rescued 3 years ago, turns 4 as I turn 60, both homeless on the road... (I must love that word!... as we are!).
We are in Utah now... in the middle of 2 million acres and kind of put things in perspective, it really does...
We left for the road because of a Family tragedy, this is our therapy... and Spirit loves it as much as I do. We have grown together and learn from each other. Sounds odd that a grown man can learn from his Dog? Oh!... they can teach so much if one only took the time... Unencombered Life for one, Love without a rest, never a demand and most important of it all... "Living for Now"! So unfortunate that I can only have one! Two will not fit in the sidecar!!!
There is much more on our Blog as he also writes at times!... it is our Life on the road... I would love to post some excerpts whenever a new chapter is up!"

This is a wonderful dog that we saved from certain death at the shelter. He is playful, friendly and smart. We will find him a new forever home that will love and care for him.
Someone just sent that to me in an email.
I saw George Carlin perform live in....
are you ready for this? Salt Lake City, Utah.
He wasn't playing in some back alley or smoked filled bar, he wasn't playing at the university...Not even the Delta (piece of shit) Center.
George actually sold out several shows every time he came through Utah and he performed at Symphony Hall...you know...where the symphony performs and operas are staged with gold leaf balconies and plush carpet and chairs. Where, if you weren't seated in time, you had to wait for intermission, because they weren't going to open the doors while he was on stage.
If there is a God, George is talking his way into heaven and Richard Pryor will be on the other side of those gates telling God, "Hey God, let him in...he was just tellin' a joke."
Meet Atticus Finch. He was listed as an 11 year old in the shelter. His previous owner dumped him there. He is so sweet but in so much pain. It hurts him to be touched. He is only 4 years old at the most and resting comfortably tonight. We hope to know what his skin condition is by Monday and get him on the correct treatment.
This is Blossom and she is the sweetest girl. Very playful and somewhat of a clown.
My dog, Casper, after doing his chores....
