    This pit bull terrier had a run in with old man Porcupine.
    Looks like the quills are in his eyes to.

    I only spent a few years in Maine.I would say that a dog that kept going back as many times as it would take to get that many spines,IS NOT A LEARNER!! That dog is definately Parris Island mascot material.He don;t know when or how to quit.Situations like he got into,is why the Navy keeps Marines around.I just hope the dog did not die or go blind.peewee-williams

    I agree, that is a pretty ignorant dog, but it is not the American Pitbull Terrier. That particular dog is a Bull Terrier, like the Spud Mckenzie dog from the old Bud Light commercials. I have seen pix of a Lab and a chow with the same injury.

    The Bull TERRIER are bread for their gameness .Just about all breads from the old world had some of this dogs blood line in it.Bull Terriers arose from a family called "bull and terrier" dogs during the 19th century. Bull terriers were bred for companionship and the sport of conformation, not for fighting. It is true that during the creation of this breed, the sport of dog fighting was prevalent, but the creator of this breed created bull terriers for the purpose of selling a dog to the general public that was beautiful to the eye. For the past 136 years, this breed sole purpose is that of companionship.

    The modern bull terrier is believed to be created with the now extinct English White Terrier, the Bulldog, the Dalmatian, several terrier crosses, and some believe the Spanish Pointer, Greyhound, and Foxhound. There is even some evidence to suggest that the Borzoi and Collie were used to help elongate the head.

    Another interesting fact of Bull Terrier history is the development of color in Bull Terriers. James Hinks, the one of the founding fathers of Bull Terriers, bred a strain of all white bull terrier dogs. With popularity, only white bull terriers were shown. This is where the term "White Cavalier" originated. The all white dogs were seen with occasional patches of color found mostly on the head. During the redevelopment of the breed after the ear cropping ban, and the movement to the downward head we now see in today's Bull Terriers, the acceptance of color on the head arrived in the show ring. And due to a few determined breeders, the dogs were outcrossed to the older styled colored terriers. The man who is known for the development and acceptance of colored bull terriers in the ring is Ted Lyon, whose preferred color was brindle. Today there is no such dog of a pure white Bull Terrier. All Bull terriers, including those who appear all white in color are colored bull terriers. The white bull terriers of today are a result of a white masking factor that masks the color of the dog. Even today, with all things being equal the preferred color for colored Bull Terriers is brindle, due to the fact that brindle can be easily lost.

    One interesting fact about the breed is the development of the natural tulip ear shape. In 1895, King Edward VII expressed This opinion to stop ear cropping to the Kennel Club, in turn they declared the ban of ear cropping which did set the breed back several years. This forced English Bull Terrier fanciers to redesign the ear. he person most credited with the development of the tulip ear is Harry Monk. The United States did not accept the change as quickly. It wasn't until 1956 until the standard was finally rewritten calling for an erect ear. The standard had called for a cropped ear up until the early 30s.

    The original designer of the down faced head is Harry Monk. The dog who created the foundation of the modern bull terrier head is Bloomsbury Charlwood, who is noted to have possessed an excellent head and ear placement. The person responsible for the carrying on this head and improving the egg shaped face is Billie Tuck. Breeders over the years have carried on the tradition to improve the Bull Terrier head and strive to come as close to the standard as possible.

    Great dogs and their owners have brought attention to the breed and it's popularity. There are many great sires and bitches who have contributed to the breed. The dogs I wish to mention are the who brought the general public's attention. Some of these dogs are Sir Walter's dog, Camp, General Patton's dog, Willie, Alaska's Juneau dog, Patsy Ann ~who is deemed as the Greeter of Juneau and a statue remains in her memory, and of course today's everyone loving party animal, Spuds MacKenzie.

    I hope this brief explanation of the history of Bull Terriers provided you some enjoyment.

    The American Pit Bull was bread in the old USA for dog fighting.
    And for catch dog they are bread for their gameness they do not know pain.
    Here are two pics of Bull Terrier and one of Pit Bull.

    The Bull Terrier has a unique eye set as well as an elongated muzzle. The American Pitbull Terrier has a compact, shorter muzzle with a wider eye set. Pay special attention to the pix that he is looking straight at the camera, you can see the long, sloping muzzle.

    I have been around the American Pitbull my whole life, as a breeder and trainer of both conformation show as well as pull dogs. brobert hit the nail on the head, the Pit was not raised to fight, but as a hunting dog, bull catch dog, and a butchers helpmeet (they would catch the stock in the corral and hold them for the butcher in the old days.) I know that you are probobly not interested in the lineage of this fine breed of dog but it is quite interesting.

    That is crazy. All terrier breeds are stubborn and tenacious. Its not surprising. My cousin's dog got it from a porcupine but he only got several quills in him. This got must have gone back for seconds and thirds. I have a 40lb female pit bull terrier and a fox terrier. Both great breeds.

    I stated in one of the other thread that the American was also a catch dog.
