History has a weird way of repeating itself. The Extreme, Exotics and Micro style Bully dogs are a product of trying to produce a dog smaller and more extreme than the norm.

.

.

This has already happened in dog history, and I’m sure it will happen again. Take a look at the picture and can anyone tell me what breed went through it before the Pit Bull?

Ever heard of “Trunking”?

.

.

Trunking locks two dogs in the trunk of a car and allowing them to fight while driving around with music blasting so loud that no one can hear what is going on in the trunk. After a few minutes, the stupid asses stop and the trunk is opened. Whichever dog is dead or injured is thrown into the streets like trash, the victor lives to fight again.
Yea this sounds crazy and even like an urban myth but unfortunately it’s true. SMH 🤦🏻‍♂️

Recently I wrote about spring poles, an exercise tool listed on the “dog fighting paraphernalia” list. Another tool on the list that is possibly the most important is a “Break Stick”

.
.

A Break-Stick is a wooden or hard plastic stick (pictured above) about 12 inches long (think: broom stick) with one end shaped into a wedge. The shape enables the person to “wedge” the stick into a dogs mouth to “break” and release the bite of a determined Pit Bull or similar bulldog/terrier breed.

.
.

* A quick to how to use: Remember to keep calm. If someone is present to help, each person grab a dog by its collar and straddle over them (if only you, tether a leash to a support like a post or tree and link one of the dogs to it) begin pulling in the opposite direction inserting the wedge end of the stick behind the molars and twist. This action will cause the dog to readjust its bite onto the stick and in turn giving you leverage to pull apart from the fight and regain control.

.
.

Lastly I like to add a “break stick” will not work on most other breeds, due to the way they bite. When other breeds of dog bites, they usually bite in an erratic manner, snapping and often releasing only to bite again. This is the opposite of what a Pit Bull does and exactly why it doesn’t work for other breeds.

.
.

Note: this information is NOT meant to promote dog fighting but to educate and help those that would possibly encounter a situation where this information might be helpful. This information IS meant to prepare one for the usage of breaking an accidental fight and what to do to diffuse it quickly. It should also be noted any potential and present owners of fighting breeds understand the characteristics and history of their respected breeds. Responsibility falls on the owner to be vigilant, to protect and prevent any fights. All owners of “Bull breeds” should know anytime one gets in a fight, you will be blamed even if your dog didn’t start it.
*Due to legal issues, you may use a “plastic tent stake” (swipe next pic) the same manner as a break stick.

It was 1987 when I first came about this picture and I remember saying to myself “I want my dogs to do that” but the truth is I didn’t know what they were doing and who’s dogs are they?

.
.

I found out that the picture is of a well respected dog trainer and PitBull activist “Diane Jessup” and her dogs, working a Spring Pole. If you’re a true dogman and BULLDOG enthusiast, then you BETTER know who she is but what is a Spring Pole?

.
.

A Spring Pole is a conditioning tool used to develop grip and drive on dogs. It helps in building muscle tone, gripping power, wrestling skills and drive. Unfortunately, the law views this type of conditioning as unlawful, ownership of a “Spring Pole” can be seen as dog fighting paraphernalia and a violation of the law.
.
.

However viewed, this is a form of “tug of war” game for dogs. Today one can walk into a pet store and purchase the variety of “tug toys” to play a similar game your dog but because this type of item is associated with the Pit Bull breed, it’s frowned upon.
.

.

Many Dog men still condition their dogs by way of Spring pole and other methods such as “treadmills” It’s common to see a well conditioned dog latch onto a piece of leather attached at the end, bite down and hang til they tired only to go back again.
.

.
They’re many exercises, training regimens and information that have immense benefits to a dogs overall well being in building drives and conditioning that old school dog men used back in the days that today can be utilized but unfortunately aren’t shared due to fear of the law and pets possibly being confiscated.

Finally we get to mankind’s most perfect creation of the brutal sport we called dog fighting. The APBT, American Pit Bull Terrier.

.
.

It’s history is simple, if you’ve read any of my last post you’d understand how the breed was brought to this country by immigrants of Europe and perfected in the states for what it has become to be known for.

.
.

Pictured is Crenshaw’s Ch. Honeybunch, not only a winner in the (pit) but possibly the best producing dog of all time. The epitome of both worlds from a continuity stand point and ideals set forth from the community of dog men of the era before and after.

Pit Bulls were on the cover of Life Magazine (3x) more than any other dog

.
.

Sallie, a Pit Bull stood guard over dead and wounded Union soldiers at the Battle of Gettysburg. She is immortalized in a Civil War monument in Pennsylvania.

.
.

Petey, the dog from The Little Rascals, was a Pit Bull. He was a game-bred dog that was casted to work with children. The dog is remembered all these years later as a fantastic pet.

.
.

Of the 51 dogs seized from Michael Vick’s dog-fighting ring in 2007, over 40 of them have been rehabilitated and gone on to loving homes. Four of them have even become therapy dogs.

.
.

Here is my problem with the above but true statement, if these dogs were truly “fighting dogs” technically the majority of the dogs wouldn’t have been able to be re-home. My opinion…. what you think?

The scars on this dogs face shows what he’s been through. This is what a dog fighting dog looks like, for those that question it. If a dog doesn’t have the scars to show for it then I doubt it’s a fighting dog and the person is making up stories…

.

Again I’m not a dog fighter, I’m only sharing and educating people of dogs and what to look for.

I’ve been asked to post about the Blue Paul Terrier and what it looked like. It was clearly one of the first of the bull and terrier crosses that I’ve written about in previous postings and most likely bred from the original bulldogs and game terriers, possibly in Scotland where some of it’s written history places it.

.
.

As with the history of old fighting dogs, an infusions of other similar dogs such as the Old English White Terrier, Old Bulldogge and Bull and terrier dogs that were brought from England and Ireland crossbred to produce dogs we see today.

.
.

Written history of what is known of the breed was that it was very popular in Scotland in the mid 19th century, but it progressively lost popularity and is believed to have become extinct in the early 20th century. It is believed that by the mid-19th century, the breed was among the first fighting dogs to arrive in the United States with British immigrants, along with the bull and terrier.

.
.

The Blue Paul Terrier’s origins are disputed as many of these dogs weren’t properly documented in that era. One story of the Blue Paul Terrier’s origins is that John Paul Jones brought them from abroad and when he visited his native town of Kirkcudbright around 1770, gypsies around the Kirkintilloch district kept Blue Paul Terriers for dog fighting, and claimed the dogs came from the Galloway coast. A possible likely story is a British military officer posted to the Glasgow area brought with him an Irish Blue Terrier bitch from the Earl of Kerry’s kennels, when he was reposted he left his bitch with friends who bred her with a white bull and terrier of the Duke of Hamilton’s breeding to create the breed.
