Summary: The stigma surrounding pitbulls has people wondering who’s fault it is when ill behavior is displayed.

As most of you are already aware of, pitbulls aren’t exactly the type of dog that gets the fairest of treatments. They’re aggressive past has led to many cities placing bans on having them as pets. The stereotype is that all pitbulls are dangerous, unpredictable, and can result in careless deaths if uncared for. However, what many people don’t understand is that it’s not entirely the pitbull’s fault – rather the pitbull breeders caring for him.

Ill-Tempered Owners Impact Their Dog’s Behavior

Pitbulls that are placed in an environment where aggression and abuse is displayed profoundly can directly impact the perspective of a pitbull. After all, they’re loyal to their owners and anything that emotionally stirs them up can become habitual over time – this means barking at anyone that poses a threat, attacking smaller dogs, and even bite others. 

Breeding for Cash

It’s safe to say that many blue nose pitbull breeders for example, are in the business for the sole purpose of making a profit. While this can be a lucrative trade to get into, it’s also a dangerous one. Pitbull breeding for specific traits is the last thing you’ll want to do when it comes to pitbulls. In the long run, they can develop serious health issues that can lead to permanent disabilities or even death. Furthermore, without a proper evaluation of the pitbull itself, and personal care, the pitbull could die before it can even reach a youthful stage of his life. This is a recurring problem that continues to plague this nation as more and more breeders are finding that this business can bring in profits.
