The American Staffordshire Terrier, or the Amstaff, is a Pitbull type dog. What I mean by that, is that when you think Pitbull, it’s likely this dog. Or the South Florida artist Pitbull, who is not to be confused with the Amstaff dog breed. This episode encompasses all of these things, since they have a similar background. Which, if you listened to our English Bulldog episode, you’d know deals with the bloodsports of bull baiting, and not looking like bulls.
As we all probably know, the Pitbull is put in a pretty bad light, as it has a very powerful bite. The breed is not inherently dangerous, but as it’s bite has a higher chance of being fatal. This is likely the reason why the breed has so much legislation against it. Most violent dogs are either abused or trained to be that way. Also, the locking jaw thing is not true. The Pitbull is not part snake. Another mis-informative fact out there, they were not nanny dogs. There is no such thing as a nanny dog.
Caitlyn has some struggles with words this episode. Kyle calls out flat-earthers, and people who get dumb rules made after them. It’s an episode on Pitbulls, but we don’t get too political. Except when we made some pretty great jokes about political slogans.
