|"The term pit bull refers to certain breeds of dog – namely, the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and any crosses between the three. In a few parts of the world, the American Bulldog is also classified as a "Pit Bull-type" dog, despite its major genetic differences."
An American Bully is a pit bull, because they're pretty much a cross of staffy's and APBTs.
I don't see what owning a REAL American Pit Bull Terrier has to do with anything. If you have all 3 dogs together, an American Bully, a Staffy, and a APBT out in public they will ALL more than likely be called pit bulls. When I walk around with Moe on the street they don't say. HEY that looks like an American Bully, they say he looks like a pit bull. Even though he's half basset 90% of people comment on him looking like a pit bull other 10% assume he's giant 60 pound weiner-dog with a huge head that is built like a truck.
ALL of the pit bull breeds have bad reputations. You make it seem like the APBT is getting blamed because people are mistaking staffys and bullys for them.
Maybe Sabi could have worded that differently, but I'm pretty sure she just meant that a lot of people that own these dogs have no idea what they're doing or are just plain stupid and the others that are intentionally making bad dogs. That is what I'm sure she meant by the "losers". Of course she wouldn't be calling the good responsible owners that have put in the training, time, and socialization into their dogs losers. She's talking about the people who make these dogs aggressive or just get them to look tough and slap a 50 pound chain around their neck, and don't do anything else with them, or the ones that leave them in a back yard all day for years with no training or anything that eventually get out and attack another dog because their owner is irresponsible.
