The pits are not the problem, it is the people who cant control them, and teach them to be vicious!I can understand the no cropped ears, and the no docking of tails, I believe the official rule is that you CAN have your dogs tail docked, but for medical reasons only, and then you have to go halfway across the country to locate a vet that will carry out the procedure which costs an arm and a leg to do!And even then, you could still get into trouble for it if an animal welfare officer decided it wasn't done for valid medical reasons...

+1000. Yeah, I had a bad owner toss his pit in my front yard with my two dobie girls, when i was out. Got home to a real mess, they never fought, they were mom and daughter.
We rushed them to the vet. Mom had lost a canine in the fight. They both had a lot of holes, blood etc. The vet said they must have been fighting if they were in a fenced yard together, but he knew them well too.
About 3 days later, another neighbor called us up and asked if we knew what happened. He said a guy was in the 'kit kat' bar, talking about what a dumb dog he had. My girls had killed him!
Makes me cry just typing that. Girl dobies dont fight the boys, you know? they are, after all, the boys.
I felt so lucky to still have them both, and so sorry for that poor pit. We knew this guy too, we used to buy our hay from him, until our fields were producing.
Sorry, long story ... Welcome to the forum.
