actually I have my own message board and everyone is allowed to speak their own mind and opinion and of course allowed to disagree. Just because they don't agree with you, I guess they can't express theres, only you can. You were the one who twisted my words. You got offended or upset by my statement but you don't care if others are offended by yours. Well thats nice. I guess it your right not to care if you offend others or the way they care for their dog. I told the honest truth when I said. "Following that logic really doesn’t mean that very few are pure bred, it only means that their is a chance that any dog isn't pure bred. " I'm not twisting words, it means something totally different then what you said. Now I can't express my opinion and explain what I mean and think? I never said people on here had show dogs? Some people even have rescued crossbreds. But it is an open forum if I want to talk about DOG SHOW standards which is the standard for the BREED then I can. Actually I'm not the first one who started mentioning it, it was spencerpits who first did and I went off that. So it is an open forum and we can talk about dog shows and standards all we want. Most people don't have a dog that meets standards, they have pets. My Boxer looked nothing like a show Boxer, she was a little wider and didn't have small bone frame, she had shorter thicker legs. Does that mean she wasn't pure. I don't think so, although I dont know if she was. She just wasn't a standard Boxer. I'm not going to be upset because some one else has a show Boxer and mine doesn't meet the standard. Their dogs don't meet the standard as in DOG SHOW. Their dogs may be the typical byb pet. I never said they weren't the typical house pets, its common and commonly known that most pet buyers buy from bybs and thats the typical pet. Your really the one turning this around all because I said certain APBTs are not pure. Well then you ARE CORRECT in that. If you take dogs from any same litter and you give one the advantage yes it will grow bigger and meet ITS full potenial. Just like you can stunt a dogs growth by not feeding it right. However you can't make a dog reach beyond its full potenial. Maybe you don't understand but dog showing is the standard. There is actually two standards. There is the ADBA with sleek/slender, true/classic pits. Then their is the UKC standard with more bone, stocky, a little bigger. These are both two standards and they are the standard and it is the standard. Even if THEY are not shopping for a show dog there are a high number of people who have both types of dogs that "fit' in this standard however have many faults and are not show quality. They are still slenderly build, they just may have cow hocks, straight stifled or whatever. Look at the APBTs on this board how many of them are out of the standard, huge dogs. And how many are fitting into the standards? Most are fitting into the standards. Check out the past pics, NOT MINE, but by other posters and thats what typical pets look like. The show dog world, the real world...whatever. Most people don't put much thought to it and pick up newpaper and buy a pet. Of course they want both parents too be pure. Do my research? I don't agree that 80% Pit Bulls for sale are stocky, however I never said stocky dogs are not pure and the UKC standard Pit Bull (yes SHOW DOG) is stocky. Do my research, well there are a lot of bybs in my area, a lot of people breeding pits and buying pits. However they don't have stocky dogs or 100lbs dogs. Their is one couple with a beautiful, stocky, seal female. But thats the only one I can think of. The people I know buying Pits are not looking for anything specific like a dog out of too stocky parents or out of two slender parents. They just buy what they see. There is nothing wrong with stocky dogs anyway and most are beautiful. However there is a difference between them and some one breeding fad dogs whether they are pure are not, even if 99% of the dogs being bred were some sort of fad dog has nothing to do with the issue, so there are a lot of bybs out there. Well I have made up my mind but you put words in MY MOUTH. Those massive, RIDUCLOUS one are not pure. Big APBTs are big pure bred APBTs. However no dog has a 100% guarantee that it is pure. yeah thats my opinion and should be able to say it freely. Different topic, well it is an open discussion forum and this threat wasn't about purity at all. It was about some one posting pics of their beautiful all white pit. Who to me doesn't look like a big stocky, 100lbs, super huge Pit Bull. Close closer to the typical pets I see. I can't honestly say she meets the "show dog standard" because she may or may not have SHOW faults, but to me she's pretty and looks like a "standard pet" that I know. Which I didn't really think there was a standard to byb or accidental litters, until you got me looking at all the pet bulls I know.
