He is also a PIT BULL mix. Pit Bulls get such a bad rep as fighter dogs, by people who breed them to fight. The fact is if you train any dog ( or any other living creature) to kill and fight, more then likely they will.
I was surfing online and I have found many websites against this reputation and with strong evidence too.. Pit Bulls have a strong if not obsessive need to please, I know this first hand with my experiences with Cago. He is the most loving, loyal, obedient dog I have ever had. It just saddens me when I see the media and people, who are not even educated about these dogs, make assumptions based on cases where the owners were at fault. This breed is even banned from cities.
"Dogs are products of their environment. Dangerous dogs are not born, they are created," said Adam Goldfarb, director of the pets at risk program for the Humane Society of the United States in Washington, D.C. "When you hear about a dog being set on fire or attacked by an ax, it usually involves a pit bull and it's not their fault. In some communities, there is a perception that pit bulls have less worth than other dogs," Goldfarb said.
