|Well then, according to the people that told you that, Mak is a Pit Bull too . People like that only feed into the BSL crap. They think all Pitties are dangerous etc. and it's so sad. Don't let them get you down because they don't sound too informed on much of anything, lol.
these behaviors are attributed to prey drive. Some dog's have more than others, depends on the dog's breed and what the dog was bred for. The first clip with the JRT was a prime example. Due to what JRT's were originally bred for, which was the purpose of hunting foxes, JRT's tend to have a lot of prey drive.
My dog does this, just about any prey driven dog does this. If you have ever watched wolves hunting, wolves know that large prey can be dangerous so they get the prey to flee (thus being behind the prey and less visible) once they manage to catch the prey, they bite and HANG ON because the prey is still mobile, and they shake their heads from side to side to better help take down the prey.
Here's a neat natgeo clip showing just that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jXxtQRy47A
