I don't know very well pitbulls, but I think it's a beautiful breed and I'm sure they're wonderfull dogs. I think this tread is more about the bad reputation that the pitbulls have, all this because they have bad owners! I can imagine if I don't like the way people react when they think our boxer is a pitbull, how you can be angry when people react at your pitbull, you can't even try to explain to them it's a nice dog, pitbulls have a so bad reputation! At least, we can try to explain to them our dog is a boxer, since boxers are not (yet) considerate to be a dangerous dog... Once again, there's no bad dog (or breed ), there's only bad owners... I understand very well your point, boxerblessed. I wish you a lot of joy with your boxer!
