Pitbulls: The Truth by Seraphim-Azriel Pitbulls: The Truth by Seraphim-Azriel
I haven't done any photomanipulation in a while, but after watching a lot of Animal Precinct and Animal Cops and seeing a video by freakyhyena here: [link] I wanted to do something, as I love pit bulls. I have yet to meet a mean pitbull. As a matter of fact, because of my interactions with a homeless friend of mine's pitbull (who she had begun to set herself straight after getting the dog), they have become one of my favourite breeds and I hate how people believe that they are aggressive by nature.
Like a lot of intelligent dogs, they need to be trained properly when young or else they can be aggressive (commonly dog and stranger) or unruly and people assume that even if they don't train their pets it's should be an angel, which is ridiculous because we don't expect that from our children.
Remember, please, on the note of children. Do not let your child approach a strange dog without permission from the dog's owner and without yourself being there! Most dog bite victims are children, and this is not surprising as they often do not think to ask if the dog is aggressive and can unknowingly aggravate the dog.

What I did:
I took the houses out of the background, edited the background, added a border and letters. It's not mayor manipulation, but grass is really hard to work with. *dies* Since I didn't want to use the filters on the actual dog (whose name is Happy), I had to separate Happy from the grass.

They are sweet gentle dogs that get a bad rap because of stupid ignorant owners.
I am pretty sure you would like Pit Bulls and Parolees if you absolutye love them. Be careful, that TV show comes with the feels.

So true!
Just because they're big dogs, or LOOK tough, does not make them mean and aggressive. :heart: Pitbulls forever! :heart:

Too right! It always upsets me when I hear people refer to these and other dogs as 'dangerous breeds'. Like all dogs, if they are not exercised properly or given the right kind of stimulation to exercise their minds as well, they become frustrated and that can manifest as aggression. 9 times out of 10, it's usually the owner who's to blame, not the dog :shakefist:
People should really do their research before buying one of these as a pet. I took on a troubled springer spaniel, who had been returned to the breeder 5 times because the owners couldn't handle her, they deemed her 'untrainable.' 9 years later she was still with me and good as gold, you just have to do your homework :)

Pit Bulls should never be human aggressive. They're usually dog aggressive... but nowadays, not all APBTs are even that.
