I mean, I don't do it, because I think it's not really a cute term. To me "pittie' sounds cuter than "pibble" which rhymes with dribble. And....ibble. I don't know...

It would certainly annoy me if I saw a rescue or something doing it...to me, "pittie" is the equivilent of "rottie" or "golden" or "lab" or "dobe". "Pibble" is just kind of weird.

Also, I always pronounced dobe and dobie the same in my head "Doh-bee". Do people read/say "dobe" to rhyme with "robe"?

I couldn't care less.

Call them what you want to call them, doesn't bother me.

I tend to take the context and the user into consideration when I hear or read it. I do, however, tend to tiresomely take every opportunity to remind/instruct people that there is NO SUCH BREED AS A PIT BULL, it's a label used by people who do not know anything at all about APBTs use to lump together anything with a big head, short ears and muscular body, or anything brindle for the purpose of loading fake statistics.

I do. I actually use it way more than "dobie." I have a friend that runs a dobe rescue and she uses it all the time.

I actually shorten a LOT of dog breeds because I'm a lousy speller--lol....

I've never heard it in real life and never realized it was a cutesy name... like "dobie" is a little cutesy but dobe is not.

I thought it was how it would sound if you said pit bull really fast... "pibble!!!" not "my liddle widdle pibble" or anything.

I don't like baby talking, but in my head "pibble" isn't soft or cute, it's energetic.

IMHO...To me, "pibbles" and "petbulls" are names for a pit mixes or pet breed pit type dogs. They are not working bred APBTs. It is each owner's personal preference what they want to call their dog.
However, I will not refer to my APBTs or SBTs as "pibbles" or "petbulls" to sugar coat reality to make someone feel more comfortable. I work entirely too hard with my dogs and to help promote a positive breed image, to have them recognized or believed to be something they are not. I have working bred American Pit Bull Terriers and Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and they always will be.

I just use the term "Pibble" When I am baby talking. I usually try and use the term pit or pitbull.

People call Westhighland White Terriers' Westies all the time. I call my breed Westies all the time too I don't expect other people to say "oh look at that Westhighland White Terrier" its just too long and too hard to say.

Same with calling a Bouvier De Flanders a "Bouve" I dont find offence to it.

I personally find the Term and used the term "dobie or dobe" instead of Doberman because its shorter and easier to say. Not because I find it cutesy. Same with "Rottie or Rott"

^This...It's kind of like "ya'll" IMHO--easier than saying "you all."

If I baby talk to Sally I generally use "pittie," as in "my ittybittypitty," etc.

Yeah, but again I've only heard it online. That's just how I read it.

dobe = pronounced like it rhymes with robe.
dobie = pronounced like it rhymes with goby.
