pitts do it alot, so do poodles. some breeds are flexible like that, others like labs hardly ever do it when they aren't puppies their legs aren't as flexible

Breeds of dogs have reputations, I guess we will put it like that, but that doesn't mean that there won't be some that don't act like that. Just because most people believe that pit bulls are dangerous, doesn't mean that they all are. Does that make sense?

Yes Pits will often lay like that. Mine do it a lot and sometimes drag their legs behind them like a mermaid or something as they rub their bellies across the floor. I used to think it was a Pit Bull thing until there was a thread started on it and a lot of other breeds do it too, where the owners as well thought it was a Rott or Goldern, ect thing.

Here are a couple of my pics also


trying out the harness, but its still a little big (she's only 4 months old so plenty of time to grow)


she see's daddy over there, that is why she looked that way


He's all happy!

well i've got tons of pics so i dont want to hog the thread or anything

do white pitts have the same chance as white boxers at being deaf?

From what I've heard, Pits shouldn't ever be completely white. I've heard that they have the chance of being deaf if they are more than 75% white or something like that. Pure white isn't a "natural" color for purebred pit bulls, at least it didn't used to be.

Neat! I could kind of see it but wasn't sure. The light red red nose pups sister is buckskin brindle red nose and her brother is red red nose.

Thanks for the complements. I might do weight pulling with her but I'm not quite sure how well she likes it. We are doing conformation first. Her sister seemed to catch on quick and enjoy herself in the harness. Her brother is just a little "loony", he is fine with it but don't think he gets the concept so it is hard to say how he will respond when he is older and when weight is heavy, ect. He was just running around crazy.

The white male has come to the end of his show career so at the last show I decided to see how he would like weight pull. I put him in and he enjoyed it a lot. He surprised me and pulled 2790lbs and took a 1st place. So I think with training for him to understand that he CAN do it in his mind and physically conditioning to build strength and get him in shape he has a chance to do much better. So I'm very happy. He loves going to shows and gets very upset if he has to stay home.

No not really overall. It depends on genetics, some breeds are carriers for the genetics which will produce the deaf dogs. For the most part it is not a huge concern with APBTs. It depends on the type of white. The reason why white dogs or dogs with white ears/head can be deaf is because of lack of pigment in the inner ear. In turn they loose their sensory hair cells and sound can't be transmitted and send to the brain. Breeds like Boxers and Dalmatians typically have these genes and have a likelihood of producing deafness. Where other breeds might produce white but normally not the same white, the dog has the pigment cells so they won't be deaf. I've known a few white deaf Pits though so it is possibly. It is just not very common, same with several other breeds out there.

Pits so many myths so little time. I'd have to laugh in the persons face who said they shouldn't be white and were never white.

That is not true at all. Whoever said that is full of it. They reason they can be deaf is if they lack pigment in the inner ear, which means they could be a lot less then 75% and be deaf. If they are a dog with a solid colored body but white head they could be deaf. There are deaf colored Boxers also because of the same gene, the more breeders chose to breed white Boxers and infect the rest of the gene pool the more deaf Boxers we will see of both variety.

It in no way true that white Pits are not pure bred. Or that Pits "didn't used to be" white. GR CH Richmond himself was white and was one of the earliest dogs imported. I'd imagine he's in most any APBTs pedigree today. Then the other early dogs like GR CH Duffy's Jack and GR CH Armitage's Kager. And of course many of Colby's dogs had flashy white markings, more then 75% up to being solid white. It is not logical to think a dog which can produce flashy white markings can't be almost all white or solid white since the gene can do as it pleases. If you breed 2 nearly solid colored dogs together they can produce white pups.

If pure bred Pit Bulls don't come in white then there is no such thing as a pure bred Pit Bull because several of the early foundation dogs brought to this country were white with spots or even solid white.

Then to look at their likely genetic background of being a mix of bulldog and terrier. Many claim the english WHITE terrier is responsible for the terrier part. Bulldogs often had white markings or could be white dogs. The ancestor of bulldogs thought to be the molossers could be white as well, it is said that the Alaunt could often be white, there were no shortage of them.

Therefore my dogs are not mutts, thank you very much! Their white coat does not dictate a pure or mixed lineage.

(ETA: The only color which isn't acceptable and thought to be brought in by mixed breeding is merle)

Dalmations that are white on the ears even if they have black spots else where are often deaf.

Some call it lethal white in some breeds but i would be surprised if that is the right term at least in lethal white horses they almost always die.

I wasn't saying that at all! I "heard" that somewhere, wasn't sure if it was true or not. I kind of worded it wrong and it sounded like I was stating a fact, when I wasn't. I, personally, LOVE white pits. It's my favorite color, along with blue, on pit bulls. But I haven't found any white pit bulls for sale out here so far.


Your dogs are beautiful, and wow your boy is strong! I wonder what my boy could pull if I started training him with weights! He's pretty much just been a big spoiled baby his whole life.
