I am not against pitbulls. I don't know if I would get a pit that had been previously used for fighting, because that dog would most likely be from bad lines, and have a bit of dog aggression, but I can't confirm that I wouldn't rescue a pit--in fact, I probably WILL rescue a pitbull. I would socialize the dog as much as possible, and of course spoil it. I love pit bulls.

I wish everyone could have seen the piece that was on our local news about Gypsy, the Pit that was found discarded and left to die by the side of the road after the dog fights. She was brought to the University of Tennessee Knoxville's veterinary school for reconstructive surgery after recovering her health and having her leg amputated.

That poor dog! But she was so happy; her tail was wagging her whole body, greeting everyone, that bit Pittie smile, even though part of her lips are gone (part of her reconstructive surgery will remedy that). After everything that dog has been through - all the horrors she's been subjected to in her life - there she was, obviously realizing that these people were good, wriggling with joy and bestowing kisses on everyone in reach.

Oh gosh...that's a real tear jerker Renee. That poor dog. I'm so glad someone is doing something for her. There really are some wonderful people out there. I do hope the rest of her life will be a joyful, peaceful and restful one.

There are a couple of threads about Gypsy in the New forum. There's a link to the news article I spoke of in the thread I posted.

The rescue organization that arranged all of this and raised the funds to help her is keeping her; she's got a career as a spokesdog now!

sorry to bring it up again, but do pitbulls have a tendency to lock there jaws or not. The poor, poor pitbull has, yes, a lot of publicity, is there a reason behind it?

No ....locking jaw is a myth for all dogs, there is no such thing in the k9 world as a "locking jaw"

For information on the pitbull please check out the link in my sig.

Naturally Pitbullīs dont have a "locking mechanism" in their jaws, but has nobody seen a pitbullīs jaws "lock on"? Perhaps the pitty that my auntie raised and loved, the pitbull that loved her actually did want to bight off her finger?

The fact that they get lock jaw probably has a lot to do with wanting to ban them. My aunty nearly lost her finger when she tried seperating a staffy and pitbull when the pitbullīs jaws locked on around her finger, you could see the pitty couldnīt do anything against it and looked very sorry for itīs actions. My aunty shouldnīt have had her fingers close to 2 dogs that were fighting, and she knew it.

Thats a quote from an old reply, I wanted to put it first, quess I skipped the computer generation

Pitbulls as many terriers (and other breeds) have very strong jaws, coupled with strong determination but biologically they are no different that other dogs. You can see a Jack Russell Terrier do the same thing.

So, they do lock on, even if they are not biologically different?
