Why the fuck are Labrador Retrievers less popular than Pitbulls in America

Why have Labrador Retrievers become less popular than Pitbulls in America or What the fuck is happening to America?

By MD

Greetings my jolly good fellows. If I may direct your attention might I inquire as to the reason tje Labrador Retrievers have become less popular than what has now become the leading purebred in America? The lab, a loyal guardian and a steadfast friend yet roguish, fearful and quite sensitive. clearly has traits that would make it what was then one of the most popular breeds in America. But no longer. Pit-bulls and pit-bull mixes have come THE MOST common breed of dog in shelters across America today. They are also the most ill-mannered, ill tempered, the most dangerous, naively and frantically defended breed in America. The Pitbull have been bred to be a ruthless and dangerous mankiller capable of destroying a human's throat with the greatest of ease. What the fuck has happened to America that has made it become like this?

Cue the Pit-Ball Defense Force.

    I see your irrational hatred for a dog breed, and raise you several puppy pictures.

    Rottweilers are excellent.

    My friend had one, no idea how to spell his name, only understood commands in Russian, which made him a force to reckon with when my friend is yelling things in Russian and the dog is just spazzing out.

    My lady has a german shepherd but it only understands russian and while I would love to take it I dunno how expensive sending a dog from ukraine to the states would be.

    Seeing as there are a whole bunch of breeds that aren't pit bulls but are lumped into that category by people who don't know any better, I'm going to take issue with the claim until I see figures.

    Also, the fault lies with stupid dog owners, as pit bulls can be great family pets - they're so stocky they can take a lot of roughness from children.

    Also MD have you considered that the fact that pit bulls outnumber Labrador retrievers in shelters does not necessarily mean that they are the more popular dog ? because if you look at this Labradors are at the top while pit bulls didn't even make it into the top ten.

    also wikipedia quote:
    wikipedia wrote:
    The APBT is a breed that is loyal to friends and family, and is generally friendly towards strangers. Many have strong instincts to chase and seize cats and other fleeing creatures, including deer and livestock (prey drive).[7] As with any dog breed, proper training and socialization at an early age is a must. According to the UKC, "aggressive behavior toward humans is uncharacteristic of the breed and highly undesirable."[8]

    The American Temperament Testing Society shows a pass percentage of 86% for American Pit Bull Terriers as opposed to the Golden Retriever with a temperament of 84.9%.[9] American Pit Bull Terriers generally have a lot of energy and benefit from exercise and stimulation to channel their energy properly and avoid becoming frustrated, bored, or destructive.[10]

    They are the best dogs.

    I knew one that would love you forever if you petted her for a bit.

    Also most pit bulls are nice and friendly and stuff, but some dogs of any breed can snap, even if raised really well, and if it happens to be a pit bull it could do a lot of damage.

    I don't know why you'd risk it anyway, they are ugly fuckers and the breed doesn't have any personality traits that can't be found in prettier dogs.

    I am in favor of dogs requiring more strict licensing requirements in general but you should need to pass a fucking five month course to own a pit bull.

    AIn't nothing wrong with the breed, it's the ignorant hood-rat owners who chain them up and tase them and burn them and starve them until they're aggressive to anyone.

    If you did that to a god-damn labrador then we'd have people spouting off about the horrible killers they are.

    There was a neat National Geographic article on a Russian study on the domestication of foxes. What they did was they took a population that they did not train at all, selected those foxes that met their criteria of most friendly/domesticated and selectively bred them. They then repeated this process a few times, never actually training the foxes, and ended up with a relatively domesticated fox, without the need for training. With pit bulls you're dealing with the opposite. People HAVE selectively bred lines for aggression, and while I don't believe that should taint the entire breed, there is some deserved reputation. If people stop fighting them those tendencies will probably go away through breeding, but there's more to domestication than just training.
