Default My mean furious pitbull

Scared off a would be thief today. I caught him in my backyard trying to get into my shed. My fence is 5' chain link and has pad locks on the gates....there is no accidentally getting in. My dog went nuts when she saw him so I walked over to see what was going on and saw him in my yard. I cracked the door and then he jumped my fence again when he heard her. The cops caught him a few minutes later looking into the back windows of a neighbors house. He said he took too many pain meds and was looking for a pool to cool off in......

This is him from my security video checking out my boat in the front. Sorry for the quality it's a screen shot of a screen shot.

The mean attack dog herself...all 50lbs.

There's a bunch of people on THT that have met my dog before and everyone of them will say she will lick you to death before anything else. She doesn't bark at the mailman, ups, or the Mormons but when I heard her today I knew she meant business. Good dog steak for dinner

You eat the steak! She has already gone way past what she did hours and hours ago. Reward / correct behavior you want don't want within 3 seconds or it is just confusing the poor critter!

It was more a figure of speech than anything

She was given a treat right after he jumped back over the fence.

Glad to hear the perp was caught! Great looking pooch you have. My dog is a pound special as well, about 45 lbs and goes absolutely ballistic if anyone comes near the house. I imagine he'd do the same If someone was in the backyard.

Either that, or you missed a comma; punctuation is your friend!

She only barks at other dogs on a walk. I was surprised when I heard her go off.

I apologize I didn't realize that their was grammer police present. Next time I'll be sure to remember my punctuation and spelling two.

I need to get her one of those doggie DNA tests. I think she has pointer because she loves birds, holds a point in the backyard, has webbed feet, a similar coat (soft head, coarse back with ticking) and a bird dog mouth. I grew up with GSP's and she has some similar characteristics. Her bark is what throws me off it's loud with a little bit of howl at the end. Not like any pointers or pits I've ever heard.

Run off and catch

Now I just need to figure out who got into my truck a few months ago. That's the real reason I put that camera there.

Nothing like a good dog to let you know when something or someone is just not right..

I get DNA test done on all my rescues.. 75 bucks is short money to get some background/linage on them.. Visual ID on dogs is guess work at best, even for folks that work with dogs for a living.. You can combine 2 breeds and get offspring that do not resemble either parent..

Default Thanks for the link

But cannot get video to play says try back later.Why does it have to be so complicated to post a pic? Other sites you just tap screen/ save image/ from gallery and you're done? On the edge you use the D .kit where you swab the mouth or a vet visit?

Did the cops shoot the dog, just to make sure they didn't get bitten?


Seriously..........."Sit UBU. Sit. Good Dog!"

I use Wisdom Panel. It is a test kit that you can get at most vet clinics and major pet stores like petco or petsmart.

While not 100% accurate, It Tests for 321 DNA markers and 250 breeds, It gives me a more then satisfactory profile of my dogs mixed breed linage..

I do these test for 2 reasons.

#1 Identifying breed can sometimes help with veterinary care. Certain breeds are sometimes prone to certain ailments or other conditions. Knowing a dogs breed makeup can help me ID, watch out for, or even help prevent those conditions.

#2 Behavior and Training. Different breeds can require different types or levels of training. Knowing the breeds and their traits and understanding them, can make training and behavior corrections easier when needed..

Here are 2 pages from the DNA report from my 3 YO female.





When we got her she was 4 months old. She was 1 of 5 siblings the shelter had with the mother, she was a skinny little bit of a thing, skittish but very vocal. Shelter said "Pitbull mix" mother looked staffie.

While I did see some kind of Bully breed in her it was not much. Because of her build, the way she moved, her speed, and she absolutely loved to run, I was thinking curr or greyhound or whippet had to be in there.

Her DNA told a very different story. One parent was American Bulldog mix, the other parent was American Staffs Terrier. She looks like neither..
The American Bulldog parent according to the report was mixed with 11% Husky, 3.5% Dobie, 1.8% Border Terrier, 1.5% Boxer, 1% bulldog.

As an adult dog I now see traits of all but the bulldog in her, She has some head and facial features, color and coat and is a people dog like a Staffie, she is built like a small Dobie, she pulls like a Husky, has the vermin hunting instincts of the border terrier, and the loyally, protectiveness, and silliness of a boxer.
