“Don’t judge the breed, judge the owner”...too” ⠀⠀
That phrase was actually created as a result of #bsl and dog breeders trying to protect their asses and businesses. It spread like wildfire and was quickly adopted by all bully breed lovers, advocates and eventually the whole dog community.
Now it is true, dog owners are 100% responsible for their actions... except dog lusters use this quote to convince themselves that all dogs are the same and if they raise them with love and affection then they can bypass the general characteristics of the breed which later stem “behavioral issues”.
There are so many working dogs, hounds ,terriers especially Pit Bull Terrier mixes in shelters or euthanized...because someone picked out a dog without fully considering its genetic makeup. ⠀⠀
They pick out a Pit and think...”if I love him and take him to the dog park every weekend there’s no way he’ll be dog aggressive”, or .... ooohhh I heard Mals and Shepherds are smart, they’ll be easy to train.”
Or worse they pick out a dog solely based on looks. Now look ...I’m not here to judge... but I am here to tell you that if bought/adopted that Akita because you thought it would look amazing to walk and take to the new posh dog park with artificial turf and hang out on the outdoor patio of your local gastro pub. I mean the photos of him and you are going to look fabulous...but the life you want to live is going to take a lot of dedication and your expectations might need to be altered based on his personality.
Breeds are categorized into groups for reasons, and there are breed standards in a place that will tell you what the original purpose of the dog was supposed to be.
There’s an entire group of dogs whose sole purpose is companionship and there’s a big percentage of dog lusters who should have picked from that category but instead opted for
the working/sporting dogs 😂
Plainly put a lot of people just have the wrong dog for their personality and lifestyle and are actually doing the right things for the wrong animal.
So Make sure you judge the breed and yourself as the owner of that breed. ⠀⠀
