Five "Bully" Dog Myths Debunked

Filed under: DogPit Bull

pit-bull-dog-myth-bsut.jpg

When people think about pit bulls and similar breeds, they often associate unprovoked attacks and supernatural strength with these kind, gentle dogs.

So Animal Planet has gathered information and debunked five majorly untrue myths about bully breeds.

Myth #1: "Bully breeds are naturally aggressive and mean."

Truth: The American Humane Association did tests and concluded that many dog breeds were far more aggressive and mean, including beagles and collies.

Myth #2: "Bully breeds attack more humans than any other dog."

Truth: 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs in the U.S. each year, but the more common breeds of dog in the attacks are actually german shepherds and chow chows.

Myth #3: Bully breeds are prone to locking their jaws, and have a stronger bite than any other dog.

Truth: Bully breeds have no different jaws than any other breed of dog or the ability to "lock" their jaw.

In fact, german shepherds and rottweilers have a stronger bite than pit bulls.

Myth #4: "Bully breed brains grow continuously, causing them to go crazy."

Truth: This myth was originally pinned to dobermans and eventually made its way to the bully breeds.

None of it is true, all dogs' brains grow and stop at about the same rate.

Myth #5: "Bully breeds are not safe to adopt or rescue because of unknown genetic history."

Truth: A dog's recent history and current temperament (easily attainable from any shelter worker) are more relevant than a detailed genetic history.

So when it comes to adoption, bully breeds are actually the most in need of loving homes because of the unfair stigmas surrounding their breed.

Go save a bully dog!
