What do you think? Are you thrilled as I am?
No! and as they are banned in the UK why would I?
Absolutely stunning so sad that it is banned here
Not sure of the point of this thread.....
Are you being sarcastic or do you actually think chopping off a dog's ears looks nice?
@Rebeka4, if you think anyone's going to like seeing a dog with cropped ears, you're in the wrong forum (and country - it's banned here as cruel, and has been for years).
I think some would question whether they are proper pitbulls what with the XXL label. They are very handsome dogs though I've got to admit. Not a fan of the ugly crop and how they're clearly presented in the video as a tool of intimidation. Are they your dogs?
I would agree.
And for me, mutilation is never beautiful. It's always such a shame to see what man will do for cosmetic purposes.
I like the way muscular dogs move though.
Beautiful animal but such a shame to produce a dog like that.
Your on the wrong forum. Ear cropping is banned, I can tell you something else that is banned too, sadly pitbulls are banned.
Is it April the first today ?
How can you do that and say you love dogs
Ok guys, everything that you said is true. I just wanna share this black Pitbull, have never seen this edition before. When we speaking about XXL, that is as I understand name of kennel.
XXL is the type of Pitbull that's being bred, not the name of the kennel. The most famous XXL Pitbull is "The Hulk"!
XXL Pitbulls are usually bought by "macho" guys for status symbols! They also have more money than sense as the dogs cost tens of thousands of US dollars
the dog in the video is Prague who is supposedly an American bully, which is a recently constructed breed that was originally bred to be a companion, so not as drivey as the original APBT & bred in 4 different sizes.
Unfortunately a lot of them are utter train wrecks conformationally- bow legged, sway backed, inbred & running to fat.
As for the Hulk, he's regarded as a joke in the US dog community & especially APBT purists as he is little more than a very fat mutt with assorted bull breeds & mastiff in his recent ancestry, whose breeder saw a lucrative marketing opportunity.
Lovely shiny coat but the poor dogs been mutilated so its actually a really sad clip.
On this forum we respond better to videos of pitbulls looking cute and giving or receiving huggles!
I’ve seen an almost identical bitch on the internet that is often mistakenly labelled as Prague as she has the same colouring but is in fact a Presa Carnario.
Goes to show how pointless BSL is when you can get dogs of different breeds that look so similar but only one is often on the banned breed (Am bully) list and then have them both being called a breed they aren’t that is half the size (APBT).
Am bullies aren't banned in the UK. Although their similarity to APBT worries me for the possibility of them getting seized under the DDA as being of 'type'.
I was going to say the same as I am from the USA. These dogs are nothing more than a joke and an absolute train wreck. disgusting......
For those having issues with the cropped ears and tails remember that just because it is banned in some areas that you are looked down upon in others for not doing it. Just like us for the Rottweiler's and Dobermans. You are looked down upon for not cropping the ears and tails and dew claws. I am not saying it is right or even that it should be done but that is the customary thing to do here.
Sorry for saying they were banned, thought they had already just lumped together with Am staffs and APBT under the ‘pit bull’ label by the uk laws. Do hope any that are already in the country don’t fall foul of the rubbish BSL we have.
I think my wording of my post got a bit confused as I was trying to say the American bullies getting confused with APBTs which are on many country’s/cities banned list won’t have something more exotic like a Presa on the list yet they look so similar. Showing how pointless an asthetic based ban is, when control orders for individual out of control dogs should happen.
It's very easily done to be fair, they do have a lot of similarities & there are a lot of offshoot 'breeds' & bull breed mixes out there, it does get confusing.
