I don't recommend APBTs to 99% of people, even a large percentage of people who already own them. I think to own this breed, you've got to want it really bad, and should have to work your butt off to get one.

i sure don't, not to the very vast majority of people i've met. most people simply are not willing to be as responsible as i feel pit bull owners need to be. *their* dogs won't be like that, certainly. not dog-aggressive, not prey-driven, nope nope nope. if you think i'm ridiculous for not leaving my dogs alone together, you don't need to own a pit bull.

It depends completely on the person and their lifestyle and future lifestyle as to whether I recommend Jrts/Prts or not.
I have known many first time owners of jrts that have awesome success with them where as other people they just wouldn't suit the breed.
I also agree with Dekka it has nothing to do with being hyper, lol I have known many other breeds or mixes that are far more hyper than most of the jrts that I know. (Yes I have met hyper jrts too, but wouldn't have one)

I'm not sure it's ever really come up. Meg is an ideal pet for an awful lot of people, but she is one of three Mountain Curs I've known, and the only one with all those great traits. Generally if people are in love with Meg and asking if they can have her, I tell them "I can give you the name of the rescue that found her for me; they do a great job matching up dogs and people."

I wouldn't recommend a Sibe to most people. Between the hair, "talking", high intelligence, high energy, and prey drive, they tend to not make the greatest pets if they aren't trained properly or exercised enough. They also need someone to be the leader, or they will do it themselves. At that point, your life is to serve them. I love Ruby unconditionally, but I don't think that her breed is for the average dog owner.

I reccomend a Middie to anyone who I think will take him off my hands.

I don't recommend danes to the majority of people who say they want one.

Most people are enamored with their size and the title "Gentle Giant". They don't realize that these dogs take a lot of work, and in the wrong hands can be nasty, dangerous dogs.

They also don't realize that the idea they had in their heads of "velcro dog" takes on a whole new meaning when a dane is involved. They aren't just attached to their humans, they're darn near obsessed with them.

As fantastic of a breed as danes are, they're not suitable for alot of people who think they want one.
