wow... I couldnt handle that site... I can take a lot, but when I got the the page where one was hanged and the other tied up I couldnt take another second... that is def a viewer beware!!!!

There is a SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL FOR PEOPLE WHO DO THAT, and I hope they find there way there very soon!!!

What?? Where are you talking about? I don't want to go; I just want to know where to avoid. Are you talking about here on DCF? Just hearing this second hand makes my anxiety level skyrocket! My God! I can barely stand Animal Planet and what you are talking about just sickens me too. And there BETTER be justice for that!!! :mad:

See i was about to ask the same thing MB, lol

Dela waht are you talking about in you post?? And yes there is a special place in hell for people like that. I completely agree.

Lord - Chris is right, we all have our own opinions about things but we all will get it out of our systems and move on. Debates are a good way to learn things and then we all laugh and get along later, I love this place :D

My doberboy is almost 100 # and he is a LOVING dog to everyone. I have recently come up with an idea to get around the system. I will buy him a service dog vest, and start really socializing him alot more, so that people can see first hand what a sweety he is. I may be going through a divorce shortly and I am NOT letting someone tell me I cannot have my baby. So I am going to play the
"Americans with Disabilities" act. I do have anxiety, and I also have a very handicapped sister. I can have my Dr. write me a script saying that its in my best interest to have my companion. And by LAW they can not discriminate against ANY breed, Or ANY SIZE. I could even take him into an apt if I had too. So thing obout this. You train your dog in obediance, get them used to all situations, and you throw a therapy dog vest on him, and let those Mother-F-ers TRY to take OUR four legged family members :protestsign:

i wont say much about that, but i think thats the wrong way to go, if you wanna train your dog as therapie dog then do so, but don't use the vest, just because and to go around the law. You will punish people what really need a service dog and working hard to get there dogs through that training.

But to miss use ( is that even a word lol ) and hide behind the service dog, its wrong.
I'm sure other can put it better in words, then i do right now, but what i read just makes me very upset.

Upsets me too. We who are disabled have Americans with Disabilities Act to protect us. I am one disabled person who takes one or both of my Dobermans everywhere with me. Everywhere. No vest, no show, no drama, no attitude.
I would hate to find myself losing that right one day due to some persons using it to make a personal statement. At the very least usurping that right leaves us, who are already harassed by our bodies to be harassed by the public and required to prove ourselves. Not really fair.

am gonna make this a sticky, but MB - I am sorry and I DO agree with you that dog fighting is wrong, but if it wasn't for such a blood thirsty sport, I wouldn't have the breed of dog that I love today. And I have to disagree with this statment "It ruins him for any type of normal life." this is not true, again these animals were NOT meatnt to be human aggressive. ANd the dogmen of the old day would never have kept their dogs in such horrid conditions, Back in the day their dogs were their lively hood, just like a horse or a cow, they were worth their weight in gold, so to speak. And they took great care of their animals, my red boy Phoenix comes from fighting lines and yes he is DA (Dog Aggressive) but I can't takeaway where he comes from. Just like Phoebe she is game bred thru and thru, her whole pedigree is nothing but fighting stock but she is the sweetest most loving girl you will ever meet. All she wants to do is curl up in your lap and lay there and get love. Now back in the day she prolly would have been culled due to lack of "Turn on" but I'm ok with that, she's a great girl. I hope I am making sense?

OMG I just read this from Tye saying Dogs should not be HA but she breeds them!!! Talk about talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Across the country - and indeed around the world - cities, counties and local town councils are busy banning or restricting breeds instead of punishing irresponsible behavior.

Here's what is happening:

Breed bans - an outright ban on owning a specific breed of dog
Breed-specific sterilization - owners are forced to spay or neuter animal
Breed-specific
Breed-specific insurance requirements - forces owners to obtain the unobtainable "vicious" breed insurance - in reality this forces owners to surrender dogs or move
Weight or size restrictions - banning dogs over an arbitrarily determined weight or size - as in Fairfield, Iowa where all dogs over 100 lbs are banned (St. Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, Great Dane, etc.)
BTW - your insurance company is happily waiting in the background too - waiting to exclude coverage of your dog, waiting to drop your policy, or waiting to outrageously raise your rates.

Check out #45,Golden retriever?wtf?
Maybe it would be easier for them to make a list of the 3-4 breeds of dog someone CAN own?

Actually, small dogs can be quite aggressive. A theory is that their owners assume because they are small they don't need training or won't hurt anyone so they are allowed to run wild. The only dog I've been bitten by was a Beagle. Just goes to show you why these breed bans don't work.

I am glad the list isn't from Ohio..........It would be a shame for none of us to be able to own a dog. Many of my friends, and myself are hunters..........There would be one heck of a revolt here! I put my Lab to sleep recently which prompted us getting the dobe. That dog was my best friend. Before I got married of course (in case she reads this.) :) Sad that humans cause such pain, not only for dogs, but every living being there is.
Good night all. Fingers crossed for no potty break at 3am.

p.s. I don't really hunt anymore, but I plan on training Brady to do agility or something. I know he isn't a hunting dog, but I will work hard to make him my best pal! After his obedience classes I want to get him involved in something..........I am told Dobes like JOBS and to stay mentally exercised. I am looking forward to seeing what he enjoys and letting him at it. Ok Now officially good evening. I have a fireplace, la-z-boy and television calling my name..........quite possibly a beverage too. :)

My kids had a guinea pig, and we have lovebirds now. They both bit me or bite me more than any dog I have ever owned or been around! Down with guinea pigs!! My fish swim around in their own poo! NO MORE FISH AS PETS! The dogs go outside at least! I think the only animals you can develop a true trusting relationship with are dogs. Seems strange that the animals people develop the best relationships with are the same ones being outlawed. Have a great day all! :)

Yes, you make sense. I guess what I think of as 'ruining a dog for a normal life' is one like last night. Where would you put a dog like that and who could take a dog like that, that was soooo freaking aggressive to other dogs (not to people, the people handled him just fine) that he tore through the wall?! When they picked him up and put him in their trucks, you know how those trucks are built...like a enclosure with a steel gate and then another full door over that? Well, when they opened it, he had actually broken or bent some of the steel gate!! Later when they put him in an enclosure they found him blooded from tearing a hole in the plastic walls to get to another dog next door. No one would be able to keep this dog without living somewhere where there are NO other dogs, ever. It wouldn't be safe. That's what I mean by that. I'm sitting here crying about it now because it is just so damn sad that PEOPLE would create something like this! It may be breed into them but PEOPLE make it worse. Your dogs may have come from this, like you said, but look at them! They are living a NORMAL life. With other dogs!! This poor dog last night was CREATED. He would kill himself just to get to another dog. You should have seen him, all bloody and hurt and not caring. Sorry, I get it, Tye, I do..I just can't stop crying about it....It's just a cruel cruel thing, dog fighting...and it's PEOPLE doing it. It's like brainwashing. I gotta get a tissue and I can't talk about it anymore......


The reason why these animals are killed is because you can't tax an animal. The punishment for the human owners is always a light sentence so that the owner can continue to pay taxes. It is that the government is corrupt and that brings corruption to a very large group of people. In my opinion, the first offense of dog fighting should be 1 year in prison. Second offense is 5 years in prison. After that it is life. Judges would have no options on sentencing a butcher. All animals in this category would have to be altered. Never to be bred. Am I a hard ass? You bet. I have had the occasion to shut down dog fight gaming in Kentucky. Same with cock fighting. Sissy animal hating judges always gave light sentences causing me to have to shut down the fighting again and again. If the government were not so corrupt, perhaps the people would behave differently?

I am going to Hilton Head Island. By the way this thing about Europe is not correct. Big dogs have to have a muzzle and always be on lease, and also pet shops are not supposed to sell this breeds but u can buy own and breed if u r private

By the way this thing about Europe is not correct.

Weight or size restrictions - banning dogs over an arbitrarily determined weight or size - as in Fairfield, Iowa where all dogs over 100 lbs are banned (St. Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, Great Dane, etc.)

This list is old and almost certainly outdated but im pretty sure it wasnt referencing Europe in any way..I did update the title to reflect this is an American ban list. Its also possible i misunderstood your post in reference to European restrictions.

I had someone try to approach my human to make me into a fighter. I just gave the idiot a tight lead and my infamous your an idiot I can eat in 2 bites growl. He went away. Idiots who fight dogs should be put in the cat incinerator with a thousand feral cats on steroids and extra long sharp claws. Humans need to learn us Dobies are hard workin' lovers, not fighters.
