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!

Dog Cremation Fail

Filed under: R.I.P.Scary!Dog

Tough week!

A Virginia man who apparently tried to dispose of his dead dog's body by burning it wound up setting his house on fire Tuesday.

The dog's owner couldn't fit the huge deceased Rottweiler in his car or find anyone to pick it up.

So he did what any normal person would do (jk) and decided to burn the dog.

Sadly, the only thing that burnt was the man's home. Srsly, the dog didn't burn at all!

Adrian Grenier Takes Time Off With His Pooch

CUTIES ON THE PROWL!

Adrian Grenier was spotted walking his tiny pooch in El Lay this past weekend.

This little pooch is the opposite of the Rottweiler which Adrian's character, Vinny Chase, owned on his HBo series Entourage.

Last week the actor said goodbye to his on screen dog, Arnold, when the show wrapped its 8th and final season. He seemed a little broken up by it!

We're so glad that Adrian has an at-home pooch to help him get through this!

Grenier Says Goodbye To His 'Entourage' Pet

We're gonna miss you!

After 8 years of filming, Entourage is coming to an emotional end!

Adrian Grenier (aka Vinny Chase) shared photos from his last days on set on facebook, including a shot with his canine costar, Rocky, who played the Entourage crew's beloved Rottweiler,' Arnold.'

Adrian said:

"Saying my goodbyes to 'Arnold' (Rocky) and thanking him for 8 great years of loyal service! I think he knows Entourage is coming to an end - dogs always know. (And I kinda look like a dog in this too. Ruff Ruff.)"

Awww!

Be strong Adrian! AND FYI, you do NOT look like a dog. Trust. Us.

Cat Fight Over Dog Magazines!

Filed under: DogFunny

dog wars

This Is Super Cereal!!!!!!!!

Insults have been traded, legal threats issued and police called in. There has even been a report that the c-word (gasp!) was shouted - all over the phrase "The Country's First and Only Dog Magazine." LOLZ!

Beverley Cuddy, editor and publisher of the long-established Surrey-based monthly magazine Dogs Today, and Lizette Roux had set up a quarterly publication, Surrey Dog Life, is totally pissed at Lizette Roux, the owner of Surrey Dog Life.

Mrs Roux said on Sunday:

"I complained to the police of intimidation and harassment. All I want to do is be happy and have a nice life. But she is a rottweiler as far as I’m concerned. It’s all been very upsetting. Mine is the first and only dog magazine in Surrey. Dogs Today is a national publication which is just based in Surrey."

The parties have been advised to cease direct contact and resolve any civil dispute through legal representatives.

The only winners in this sorry are the cat people - who get one point for having nothing to do with this.
