American Pit Bull..wizardofbaum


American Pit Bull: In this documentary from Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Marilyn and Chuck Braverman, the remarkable yet tragic history of the American Staffordshire Terrier - aka the Pit Bull Terrier - is explored from the era when it was considered the "All American Dog" to it's later reputation as a vicious attack dog frequently used by drug dealers. While it may be hard for some to believe, there was a time when the Pit Bull Terrier was considered a loyal and loving companion for humans. Thomas Jefferson owned a pair, Helen Keller relied on one for assistance, and even the Little Rascals frolicked carefree with their skittish Pit Bull Petey. Sadly, Pit Bull would gradually evolve from the working dog of the upper class to become the bloodthirsty bodyguard of choice for inner city drug dealers. In this documentary filmmakers explore the entire spectrum of roles that the Pit Bull has played in American society while asking whether the breed is a dependable family pet or an unpredictable killing machine.

Pretty sad stuff. I feel sorry for all the dogs that are forced to fight each other like that. Depressing but also expected that some people would take advantage of the dogs like that. A 8/10 for me.

Great show i my self have kept pits for years and they are as you make them . there is more attacks every year from poodles and collies but there overlooked simply because of the stigma atrtached to a pit and some bad owners they take the fall

I own a pitbull terrier, and shes a sweet loving animal, she has never started a fight, but i did have some problems when other dogs would try to dominate her or attack her, because she will not start a fight, but she damn will finish it. And sadly that couragous character of the pitt makes it a true companion a fearless defender and sadly a remorseless fighter. But one has to know how to handle these kinds of situations show and teach the dog that this is unwanted behaviour and then and only then are you the human fit and deserving to own a pitbull terrier, because a smart man once said, with great power comes great responsability.

Just so you know there are some scenes of dog fighting at the beginning. I love these dogs they are so good natured but they are illegal in uk :( i have a staffie and they are just the same (but smaller) and now they are getting a bad rep coz some parent let there child poke one in the eye for four hours solid so it bit her. If someone poked you in the eye for so long i bet you would do something similar.A dog is what you make it.

The link (wisevid) to this film was problematic for me if I paused it to let it load, it would lose the connection to the feed and if I tried to just let it play without loading it it would lose it anyway. So I am afraid I don't have an answer!

My 14 year old pit died last year of cancer (I now have a ten month old.) He never hurt anyone or anything in his time on this planet. If you can ignore that, then you can ignore the fact that pit bulls can and have been raised to be wonderful, caring, gentle, loving, non-aggressive animals. And if you can ignore that, then you obviously have an agenda and you will stick to it no matter how many times you're proven wrong.

didn't work for me either, won't buffer correctly, if you try to pause it to let the buffer fill up, the entire progress bar vanishes and you can't restart it.

They should put michel vic in the cage witha pit bull,then we will see if he likes dog fighting.. ( his punishment ) The ironic thing about that is that he would be in no danger whatsoever. Pits, Staffordshires, American Bulldogs, and all of their kind, unless made to purposely attack a human, either through cruelty, abuse, neglect or intentional, malicious conditioning and training, would never do so except in the protection of their owners or family.

this doc wants to get its facts straight the pitbull was not originally bred for fighting other dogs but was in fact bred to drive cattle and protect the cattle from wild big cats and other animals wanting to kill livestock. people r the problem first and for most and if u r not educated about the dogs thats when it becomes dangerous!!!!!
