More Information On Bans And Restrictions

A) Breed Bans - an outright ban on owning a specific breed of dog

B) Breed-Specific Sterilization - owners are forced to spay or neuter animal

C) Breed-Specific Measures - that include mandatory registration in a database similar to a sex offender database, forced microchipping, forced containment or signage

D) Breed-Specific Insurance Requirements - forces owners to obtain the unobtainable "vicious" breed insurance - in reality this forces owners to surrender dogs or move

E) Weight Or Size Restrictions - banning dogs over an arbitrarily determined weight or size - as in Fairfield, Iowa where all dogs over 100 lbs are banned (St. Bernard, Irish Wolfhound, Great Dane, etc.)

By The Way! - your insurance company is happily waiting in the background too - waiting to exclude coverage of your dog, waiting to drop your policy, or waiting to outrageously raise your rates.


Information obtained from Responsible Dog Owners of the Western States


STOP Dog Fighting - Letter to Representatives


WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP PREVENT THIS-YES, YOU *CAN* HELP, AND YOU *SHOULD!!* IT WILL NOT COST YOU A DIME.

PLEASE COPY THIS FORM LETTER AND SEND IT TO YOUR FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES!!!


Dear____________:

Please co-sponsor and help pass S. 1880, H.R. 3219, and H.R. 3327 (the Dog Fighting Prohibition Act and the Federal Dog Protection Act), which would strengthen the penalties for illegal dogfighting and also prohibit the possession of fighting dogs and attendance at dogfights

The TRUTH behind dog fighting:

(1) MOST STATES do list them as felonies--but oftentimes ARE REDUCED to misdemeanors.

(2) TRUTH: Idaho and Wyoming list dog fighting as a misdemanor. Wyoming did have a session recently and addressed it--they REJECTED it and it remains a misdemeanor.

(3) TRUTH: Some states still allow people to watch dog fighting. Just not host.

(4) TRUTH: Some states allow dog fighting kennels, just not to participate (yeah, right).

(5) TRUTH: It's ONLY a federal case if INTERSTATE involvment happened. It's really the only thing that got Micheal Vick. Otherwise it would just be a felony case in Virginia...and it probably would have been reduced to a misdemeanor--he has all these lawyers.

(6) TRUTH: Dog fighting is a NATIONAL EPIDEMIC. People complain about Korea eating dog which involves a very painful hideous death, but look what we do in our country with our dogs. The Humane Society of the United States estimates over 40,000+ dog fighting kennels. It's probably over 100,000+ considering all the dark alley kennels.

(7) TRUTH: DOG FIGHTERS use homeless and stolen cats, dogs, puppies, and kittens for training bait-they enjoy watching these poor creatures get torn to pieces. Imagine how that would feel to get ripped to pieces alive.

(8) TRUTH: DOG FIGTING funds street gangs, illegal gambling, illegal weapons, and dopers and all other vices and perversions.

Check out the HUMANE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES-yes, it's all true.

If the federal legislature FAILS to make dog fighting a federal crime in all 50 states even without interstate involvment, then the US truly earns the title of AMERICA, THE CRUEL. DOG FIGHTING IS SICK!!!

THIS IS A DOG FIGHTING NATION--IT NEEDS TO STOP!!!

Respectfully submitted,


A massive reason for not breeding your dog is that there are so many others looking for homes. That thousands of perfectly rehomeable dogs including puppies are put to sleep in pounds across the country purely because there aren't enough homes for them all.

If you breed your dog just once and the resulting puppies are bred, and their puppies are bred, and so on, within 6 years you will be responsible for up to 67,000 dogs just because you bred from your dog once!

Why Neuter?
-Spaying completely eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.
-Neutering completely eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.
-It can stop females having phantom pregnancies, mood swings and bleeding.
-It can stop males straying, humping and being frustrated.
-Breeding from your female dog just once increases her chances of ovarian cancer by 7 times
-On average a neutered dog lives 2 years longer than an un-neutered dog
-Millions of pounds of your taxes are spent on dealing with the problem of unwanted animals.
-Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.
-Stray animals get into rubbish bins, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.

Dont Breed. Adopt!

219 dogs are put down every day in Atlanta.



Did You Know?
Well first off a massive reason for not breeding your dog is that there are so many others looking for homes… but you knew that right? That thousands of perfectly rehomeable dogs including puppies are put to sleep in pounds across the country purely because there aren't enough homes for them all.

If you breed your dog just once and the resulting puppies are bred, and their puppies are bred, and so on, within 6 years you will be responsible for up to 67,000 dogs just because you bred from your dog once!
Not a figure to be proud of when a survey commissioned by the Dogs Trust showed that almost 8000 healthy dogs were put to sleep in council pounds in 2005 alone.

Many people are simply unaware of the figures and the current crisis in EVERY pound and rescue throughout the UK.

The sad fact is that these numbers are rising every single year!! There just aren't enough homes for all the dogs that are being bred by 'have a go Joes' trying to make a profit without a care that they are breeding pets with bad genes and hereditary problems, and rehoming to impulsive buyers who cant handle the dog it will grow up to be or the responsibility of owning a dog.

The fact that you may have homes waiting is irrelevant, the fact that the parents make good pets is irrelevant.
Other dogs are DYING because homes are not available. Who the hell are we to deny these dogs of the chance to live their life because YOU will make money on YOUR pups?

Cross Breed Trust strongly believe that if someone chooses to contribute to the future and development of the history of dogs then they should be FULLY educated in what exactly they are contributing to and the current issues involved as a result BEFORE even contemplating whether they should add to it.
We are not however, against responsible and registered breeders who are willing to carry out necessary tests and carry the extensive costs to ensure the survival and quality of the breed that they love ensuring that every care is taken to the welfare of every dog in their care.

Still want to breed?
Requirements for breeding your b1tc4 can vary tremendously from breed to breed but it is never a cheap option to make easy money as many people find out the hard way. The risks in breeding a mixed breed dog are countless and is a irresponsible thing to do as you have no idea what problems you could be passing on to the resulting puppies.

Breeding your b1tc4 isn't quite as straight forward as it may seem. Here are some things to think about before you go ahead.
-Before breeding from any dog both parents should be vet checked for overall health and any possible inherited conditions that might affect the particular breed. There are several health schemes in operation to assist in the prevention or control of some diseases such as hip and elbow dysplasia, eye conditions etc. Plus DNA tests should always be carried out before breeding a litter of pups with an unknown future. All of these come at a cost. Please see HERE for a list of disease-specific DNA tests that can currently be accessed directly from the UK

-Pregnant b1tc4es can often become very clingy and 'dependent' on their humans when pregnant, would you have the time and commitment to give her or would you be leaving her all day while at work alone.

-Would you be able to pay a fee for a health checked, tested suitable stud dog with which to breed your b1tc4 with?

-She would need good quality, and often expensive food during and after pregnancy, as will the pups once they are weaned.

-Could you afford the time away from work to care for your dog around the time she is due to give birth?

-Do you have a quiet space within your home where mum and pups can feel safe and unthreatened away from the family bustle?

-Would you be prepared to pay out of hours vet fees when your b1tc4 seems to be having complications while giving birth during the night?

-Vet fees will be highly expensive for the slightest complication with mum or if there are any sick pups they will need specialist care and constant attention.

-For the first 8 weeks of a puppies life it is essential for them to be with their mother and siblings to learn important socialisation lessons, do you have the space and 'puppy proof' facilities to care for 6,8,10,12 possibly more, puppies all peeing and pooing and beginning to chew?

-Can you find suitable, responsible homes for these puppies with people willing to research the breed, probably paying for advertising in 'doggy' related media.

-Are you prepared to visit countless families in their homes to ascertain the most suitable future for your pups?

-Are you willing to take any dog back at any time in its life and support the new owners should there be any problems with the home you have found?

-Are you willing to put your beloved pet at risk of life threatening uterine or ovarian cancer or pyometra later in life.

-The pups will need their first vaccinations before they go to their new homes and health checks to make sure that they are in perfect health.

-What if one of the pups develop a hereditary disease or temperament problems and the new owners return it to you. Will you A) Pay for training or veterinary care B) Keep the dog, putting up with the problem and reducing both the pups and your own quality of life or C) Refuse to take the dog and let the new owners take it to the pound to be part of the system or possibly be put to sleep as one of life's rejects?

The Cost Of Not Neutering
Neutering may seem like an expensive operation now, but will you regret your decision not to neuter your male when he is humping everything in sight, when you cant trust him off lead as he runs off looking for a b1tc4 in heat. When he develops defensive or aggressive behaviour towards dogs or people, or perhaps when he develops testicular cancer and your vet requests a bill in the hundreds for another, more complex operation and medication.

Will you regret not neutering you b1tc4 when she's in heat leaving patches on your carpets, becoming clingy or grumpy and fighting with other b1tc4es.
When she bolts out the door looking for a mate or when a stray male catches her scent and scales your 5ft fence to mate with her leaving you to deal with the unknown results and costs. Or when she develops ovarian cancer and again your vet requests a huge bill to cover the costs to operate.

Why Neuter?
-Spaying completely eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer and greatly reduces the incidence of breast cancer, particularly when your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle.
-Neutering completely eliminates testicular cancer and decreases the incidence of prostate disease.
-It can stop females having phantom pregnancies, mood swings and bleeding.
-It can stop males straying, humping and being frustrated.
-Breeding from your b1tc4 just once increases her chances of ovarian cancer by 7 times
-On average a neutered dog lives 2 years longer than an un-neutered dog
-Millions of pounds of your taxes are spent on dealing with the problem of unwanted animals.
-Irresponsible breeding contributes to the problem of dog bites and attacks.
-Stray animals get into rubbish bins, defecate in public areas or on private lawns, and frighten or anger people who have no understanding of their misery or needs.

Some Excuses, Myths, and Facts from Just One Litter.com

"My pet will get fat and lazy." 
The truth is that most pets get fat and lazy because their owners feed them too much and don't give them enough exercise.

"It's better to have one litter first."
Medical evidence indicates just the opposite. In fact, the evidence shows that females spayed before their first heat are typically healthier. Many veterinarians now sterilize dogs and cats as young as eight weeks of age. Check with your veterinarian about the appropriate time for these procedures.

"I want my dog to be protective."
Spaying or neutering does not affect a dog's natural instinct to protect home and family. A dog's personality is formed more by genetics and environment than by sex hormones.

"I don't want my male dog or cat to feel like less of a male."
Pets don't have any concept of sexual identity or ego. Neutering will not change a pet's basic personality. He doesn't suffer any kind of emotional reaction or identity crisis when neutered.

"It's too expensive to have my pet spayed or neutered."
The cost of spaying and neutering depends on the sex, size, and age of the animal, your veterinarian's fees, and a number of other variables. But whatever the actual price, spay or neuter surgery is a one-time cost and relatively small when compared to all the benefits. It's also a bargain compared to the cost of having a litter and ensuring the health of the mother and litter; two months of pregnancy and another two months until the litter is weaned can add up to significant veterinary bills and food costs, not to mention the added financial and health costs if complications develop. Most importantly, it's a very small price to pay for the health of your pet and the prevention of more unwanted animals.

"I'll find good homes for all the puppies and kittens."

You may find homes for all, or at least most, of your pet's litter. What you may not think about is that, in less than one year's time, each and every one of your pet's litter may have produced its own litter, adding more and more animals to the population. The problem of pet overpopulation is made and perpetuated one litter at a time.





Common Pitbull Myths-Busted

Would a dog-aggressive dog be aggressive to people too?
No. Some dogs can be aggressive to both animals and people. However, Pit Bulls were bred to be reliable with and friendly to people. Since handlers had to work very closely with the dogs in their original activities, the dogs had to be totally trustworthy. Aggression to animals and aggression to people are two completely different traits.

Do they have "locking jaws"?
No - another myth. It is a dog's strength and drive that result in a tight hold.

Are they good guard dogs?
No. These are people-loving dogs and should not be used to guard, intimidate or display an owner's machismo. A coward with a powerful dog is still a coward. So many Pit Bulls are injured, abandoned, and euthanized at shelters because people wanted them as status symbols, guard dogs, gambling objects or other bad reasons and then discarded them.

Do they have unpredictable temperaments?
No. As with any breed, some individual dogs may have genetic aberrations due to poor breeding, and some display unstable behavior as a result of earlier mistreatment and abuse. But Pit Bull breeds are among the top scorers by breed in standardized temperament tests.
