Oh no don't get me wrong. I think they can be great dogs. My problem is that there has been so many irresponsible breeders and dog fighters that I am leary of them. I have never had one, and only been around two of them. They were okay, but because I didn't know were they came from, and the people that owned them were not the type to do a lot of research to make sure they were from a good line, I wasn't comfortable. As I grew up around Dobs, who often times get a bad rep, and I have had a rot, who once again can have a bad rep, I know it is alot of misunderstanding the breed.
so what I meant was that because of the bad breeding I am leary of them. There are too many people out there who aren't paying enough attention to make sure they don't breed to close and cause the breed problems.
