The NSA is watching your dog's birthday.
I took a video of his dinner. This thread is just an excuse to post said video.
He's a good dog and does quite well with my daughter. She's a year and a half old now and he's been with her since day one. Well, technically day 3.
This was the day we brought her home from the hospital.
This was around 5-6 months old. She enjoys sitting in his bed.
She took him on a walk about 2 months ago.
I'm not really sure why I even brought my daughter up in this post. She isn't in Baku's birthday dinner video at all. Anyway, here you go.
The NSA is watching your dog's birthday.
How has this thread been up for over an hour and TheCutlery isn't in here derailing it, calling you a fucking idiot, and preaching about raw food diets. The Douche-Signal must be broken.
Nice looking dog.
Good looking dog love pits.
Beautiful dog and daughter. Commence pitbull derail!
Cool story bro.
Not everything on the internet is true - Abraham Lincoln
Haha you have a murder dog and a baby? You realise that they can randomly snap and kill right? Put it down ASAP, do you value the dog or your daughter more?
beautiful dog, loved your video. what's your address, i'll mail beggin strips.
I wish everyone would train their dog that well.
Your dog is a mutant. Dogs don't eat bananas. How did you convince him bananas are good? Did you pour bacon grease on that?
Here we go with the pitbulls are dangerous nonsense.
And dogs love bananas. Stuff a kong with a banana, freeze, give to dog, take a vacation.

Five to six months old is one thing but the day you brought her home from the hospital you are setting her up in a pic like that? Seems like you have something to prove with the whole pitbulls/dangerous/children thing there.
Yeah, I'm sure everyone just can't wait to lay a newborn down with a beast that licks its own butthole and happily eats shit.
I have quite a few friends with pit bulls and they are some of the most caring dogs I know. Pit bulls are awesome. OP's dog looks to be no exception.
I'm not judging the man's parenting skills but I wouldn't let any real dog around an infant. Pitbulls are a great breed but I'd never get a dog whose ass I couldn't kick.
Comon Tuco, don't pussy out on us now
Putting an animal with muscle strength that rivals or surpasses that of a grown man, teeth larger than human phalanx, and cognitive power that follows a brain the size of a golf ball near a baby is about as idiotic as it gets - OP is a gigantic douchebag - Someone call child services.

Thank god Louis CK just cleared up canine behavior and training for us.
You think he actively trained his dog not to jump up startled over something and inadvertently claw the kids left eye out before they brought her home? How do you go about this training?
Man air is dangerous, it can have all sorts of dangerous pollutants and carcinogens in it. Any parent who would allow their baby near air is a douchebag, we should call CPS.

It wouldn't help at all if a dog was socialized around children, infants, other dogs, other people, strange situations and loud noises, weird objects and all types of things as it was being raised.
Dude, fucking IMAGINE if dogs could sniff bombs, attack criminals on command, rescue drowning people, sniff cancer. Would be FUCKING CRAZY!!!!
And in the case of cancer it's asinine - most cancer forms are not 'sniffable', but rather detectable by biochemistry. More precise, more reliable and far superior in every way. Didn't they teach you that in shop?
Training conquered an instinct. I can put food on my dogs face and tell him to leave it and he won't touch it. My puppy has been waiting to eat her food until I say 'okay' from 10 weeks old.
Am I getting trolled? Is this shmuck real?
Sweet dog. I rescued a half pit/half lab (I think that's what she is anyway) from the pound a year or so ago. She's the sweetest dog/biggest pussy I've seen
She's had staring matches with herself in the mirror and then tried to hide under the bed (and gotten stuck).

What about a pack of them? Piranha's of the earth?

But maybe you're right. Maybe he socialized his dog with week old infants just out of the hospital. I'm sure he may have plenty of friends and neighbors who would respond well to "hey, can my dog sleep on the couch with your little baby? I want to make sure he's used to infants so he doesn't accidentally bite my new kid's face off in nine months....just training you know?!?!"
You idiots trying to argue dog behavior is like me trying to explain astrophysics to someone.
Hint: I don't know anything about astrophysics.
It's now time for me to take my Rottweiler out for the night to pee. Hopefully he can resist the urge to attack the nearest living thing and I can control his superhuman strength and aggression.
On the other hand, though you clearly have the dog trained to eat when you allow it, that son of a bitch had no interest in anything but tearing into his bowls as soon as he was given the go ahead. Zero interest. Only eating instincts and behavior conditioning going on leading up to the feast. Which speaks to Izo's points I'd say.
I've tasted Frosty Paws dog ice cream a long time ago and decided it might have been the closest taste experience I've had to eating shit. Which means dogs probably love the hell out of it.
In closing: you sang happy birthday to your fucking dog, so you obviously aren't terribly stable mentally and should have your child taken away on general principle.
I move for this motion to pass:
Also let's get this thread where it belongs:

Regarding that picture, we wanted Baku (the Pitbull) to become associated with our daughter RIGHT AWAY. He's a part of the family. She came home as a bigger part then he ever was, so he needed to understand that. He has the capability (though not the intention) of hurting her very seriously. We wanted him to see that she is not a toy that we're keeping away. She's here to stay so get used to her.
From that point on he accepted her.
I used to raise pits and train them to be helper dogs for disabled people before I joined the Navy. I'm no Cesar Millan or anything, I haven't even owned a dog in 10 years, but yeah, i definitely wouldn't have a problem letting any dog that I would actually own be around my newborn . I'd give them some time to adjust and be curious, I wouldn't just come home from the hospital and throw them in the kennel together. I mean, you know your dog better than anyone so if you were comfortable then whatever. It is important to note that there have been cases of perfectly obedient dogs just wigging the fuck out and killing infants. Every story like that I have ever heard always begins with "the parent left the infant alone with the dog..." so there's that.
Everyone should be able to see it now, sorry for the fatfingering.
Grumpy cat hates dogs apparently.
In retrospect, perhaps you do possess the mental capacity of a dog and as such can consider it your equal with regards to instinct and cognitive capacity. Alas, I'd have hoped for more. I hope child services visits you real soon.
Ok, I'll be fair. Toy breeds aren't fair. Which dog would you have more concerns about leaving your child alone with, Golden Retriever, or American Pit Bull Terrier?
Yeah Chaos, Izo never goes into a thread and overanalyzes topics in a faggy way.
Welcome to the party - thanks for coming. I'll overlook how you never do ad hominem straight away or do anything but go straight for the subject, if you can. Deal?
Look at the pictures / vid from OP - How about them babies and pit bulls, T?
Breeds don't matter, training matters.
I see this thread has replaced your ecig crusade. Nice to see you annoy everyone here just as much as you did there.
A Golden Retriever is bred to have a soft bite that won't damage the bird and a mild temperament so as not to startle the prey prematurely....and to swim of course. Its seen as a friendly dog and for that reason shitty as a guard dog, while other dogs specifically bred for the purpose are loyal and protective of owners and better suited to guarding.
Pit Bulls were bred to do violent battle with bulls and bears. FUCKING BEARS, this thing was purposefully designed to go into a death match with a motherfucking bear.
Denying that one has far greater potential to cause damage than another is to deny the entire history and purpose of the fucking breeds. You can get yourself off on this "all dogs are essentially the same" petlitically correct circle jerk but I'll recognize that every breed has unique issues that should be observed.

No matter what kind of dog you have, there is always the possibility that it may get angry (and aggressive) under some stimulus. The same can be said for pretty much any animal, humans included. To think otherwise is just naive.
Also no where did I say some dogs can't do more damage than others. This whole "I'm going to make arguments up" shtick that goes on in debates around here is getting old.
As I already said, breed absolutely does matter. Terriers are aggressive dogs, period. Little terriers are the absolute worst.
Which is why you train them and do it early. Left to their own devices yes, some breeds can be a larger threat to their families and those around them.
Which again is why you don't do that.
That all being said, has anyone every come across a Lhasa Apso that wasn't mean as fuck? I know three people who have them (one doesn't anymore because it kept attacking kids in the neighborhood) and those little bastards attack everything they see, it's nuts.
Such as, you can let your Lhasa Apso be a poorly trained little shit who bites everyone's ankles and never get sued or charged with a crime. Not so for a Pit. So....training matters a whole lot more when you own a dangerous breed. Glad we could come together on this after all.
pitbulls get a bad rap because ghetto people train them to kill each other for money. did you get your dog from a breeder in the ghetto? no? then he should be fine as long as its been trained well.
I said that two posts into this.
So again, yes. Training matters, breeds don't.So....training matters a whole lot more when you own a dangerous breed.
Treat a pitt like a wolf. If you wanna keep one, fine whatever. It's a living creature. It has its dignity.
But if it ever attacks anyone I hope the sheriff in your county has the balls to charge you with felonious reckless endangerment. No matter how well you've trained that dog, it is a beast. That's not the dogs fault.
Haters gonna hate. Pitt's gonna Pitt.
I grew up with 3 Doberman's including one that I was "responsable" for (as much as a 7 year old could be) pup. The other 2 were around when I was born and they were perfectly fine with me as well. I have no doubt that any of them could have done major damage but they were trained and cared for properly and were the gentlest dogs ever. You learn to respect the breed and how they are feeling and you have ZERO to worry about. While I have no doubt that mine would have killed anyone who tried to hurt me I never once worried about her or my parents two.
I have two Siberian Huskies now, one is a rescue who the shelter and vet THINKS might be part wolf, it was a nightmare to train but now I do not worry about him around kids or small dogs. Yes I still keep an eye on him around them I know warning signs if he is going to get agitated, but you also have to show kids how to approach dogs and what to do and not do. He is 110 pounds and could take down a deer there is no doubt in my mind, but with the right training any dog can be a good dog. Dogs are not vicious people train them to be that way.

A pitt is a penis extension. That's all it is. Sorry if it's your favorite dog and they're just so loyal and loveable.
It's not the dogs fault that the only people who own that breed of dog are either niggers or trailer-niggers. If I was king I'd give every last one of them to chinese resturants with a clear conscience.
stunted little fucking trash wolves.
A little back on topic:
Our late dog, Lakota, was attacked on the street during a walk by a pit bull, had to go to the vet immediately. He never trusted other dogs after that. It changed him.
My 87 year old grandmother was bit on the forearm for no reason by the trash across the street's pit bull about 5 years ago. Had to get stitches.
There is a moron around here that owns two pits. We have to literally walk down another street if we see him and his stupid aggressive dogs while walking our dog. Our dog is friendly, and likes to say hello to other dogs on walks. His dogs get aggressive and he yells at us to get our dog away from his. What great pets. So glad to have them in the neighborhood.
Honestly though when I see someone with a pit the first thought in my head isnt omg dangerous dog, its lol what a tool/idiot the owner is.

What happens if your dog has a bad dream and starts to attack your baby? (Was a story about this happening to a woman who slept with her dog for years)
What happens if your toddler has a tantrum or is curious and hits the dog or something, startling the dog and getting attacked?
Yeah this stuff is unlikely, but it could happen and there are regularily dog death stories in the media. Would you leave your baby playing near a busy road or alone in the garden?
5 pages and no mentions of the "locking jaw" of a pitbull, like an alligator. Today will be a good day.
Odds on "once they get into a fight and taste blood they will want it forever" in the next 3 pages? Get some action going on this thread people, it's gold.
Oh, slippery slope.
The problem with pitbulls is that when they finally do bite someone, their jaw locks down like an alligator's and you can't get them off. Once that happens, they get the taste for blood and can't be controlled.
Your data also shows Pitbulls having the first or second highest kills despite them probally not being the most popular breed of dog. I wouldn't risk it.
Assholes own all kinds of dog breeds. Millions of people are too irresponsible to be dog owners, but they are, and pitbulls have been the fad breed for 5-10 years now. There are fucking tons of them, and if they were an AKC registered breed you'd see just how popular they really are.
Oh and dogs don't "turn" this isn't the walking dead.
We purchased our dog from a high-school friend's family when he was 7 weeks old. My friend had been killed in a Motorcycle accident a few days prior, so I went to his parents house to give my condolences. While there, I saw that their dog recently had 12 puppies (though 1 was a still born). My wife had been talking about getting a dog because she always grew up with one while in Japan. I was never really a dog person myself, but we decided to get one anyway. That way it would put a little money in my friend's Parent's pocket, as well as give my wife something that she wanted. I chose the calmest of the group. He was definitely not an Alpha, and we made sure that he knew we were boss from the moment he came into our home. Not to mention that he was only 1 of the 4 that had Gray in their coat. The rest were tan, which was ugly.
Baku knows that my wife and I are his proverbial "pack leader". He never steps out of line and we reward him for it. He always turns to us when he needs help. For example: While walking him down our block, a neighbor's shitty half poodle mutt attacked his neck the moment we walked past. My dog just stood there doing nothing while I got it off of him. Another time we had him at a doggie day-care type of place. The bigger dogs play together and the little dogs play together. Baku got attacked by 3 Boxers for being "the new guy" or some shit. He did nothing at all to retaliate. It isn't his nature to be aggressive.
That said, my Mother saw how good of a dog our Puppy was, so she went ahead and bought his sister. The sister is VERY high strung, and will gladly pick fights with whoever wants a go at her. We refused to let our daughter anywhere near her for the first 7 months, then we only brought her over sparingly. I worry about that dog. I don't worry at all about Baku. He knows his place.
I'll film another video tonight showing you guys how he is not food aggressive. That's another thing that someone here claimed was impossible. Baku has no problem letting you put your hands in his bowl while he's eating. He stops and backs up right away. Even when my daughter does it.
Anyway, I realize that not all dogs are the same, but Baku is the perfect "friend" for our daughter. He's extremely laid back and not an alpha at all. He knows that we are master, and he never tries show dominance around us.
And to those of you comparing our pit to golden retrievers or dachshund, way to let the media corrupt your mind. There are buzz words out there, and Pitbull is one of them. There are plenty of bad owners out there, and a lot of those owners own Pits. As a result, the dogs are undisciplined, and such. As a breed, they are naturally ANIMAL aggressive only. NOT human aggressive. This dates back to when there was heavy breeding and splicing just for the sake of the ultimate fighting dog. The fighting dog would be put down instantly if it ever attacked a person. As a result, they tend to not be human aggressive.
They are by nature, however, ANIMAL aggressive. But if you start them off when they're puppies and keep them immersed with all kinds of animals, they lose that as well. My dog has no problem being friends with my father's cats. They don't really like him, but he's only played with them. He's never been aggressive.
A wise man once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Baku's past performances have always shown that he is a calm and gentle pet. I wouldn't expect that to change. Also, with the picture of my daughter as a 3 day old sitting in his lap, when we first brought her home, Baku had to re-evaluate everything in his life. He ran around re-smelling the entire house, as well as my wife and I. Once 2-3 hours had passed and he calmed down (laid on the couch), we placed her in his lap for the sake of the picture. He was done his smelling stage and had already accepted her.
