^Very impressive. I couldn't have done most of that with any of my Tosas, I'm sure. Too bad Bane and Hera gave the Presa such an evil reputation. As I think I have remarked in these threads before, there was evidently some serious temperamental instability upline from Bane's sire. I've seen some Presas at rare-breed shows that appeared to be stable, well-behaved, even-tempered dogs. However, I have heard of others that displayed excessive human aggression. I seem to recall another incident (in Florida, I think) where a Presa killed his owner when she tried to give him a bath a few years ago.

Tosa is a big dog to be putting on top of shopping carts, but most I've seen were pretty athletic.

I encourage people to do this stuff all the time. Working your dog through environmental stress (you can see the dogs stressing out a little) is a great confidence builder. We used to do OB and bitework in the craziest public places, but sometimes the cops were called on us for "beating our dogs." These days you have to stay hidden away on private property if you're doing bitework.

Interesting looking do that Presa. Never seen one of those before. Saw a silver/grey Weimeraner today. Gorgeous dog.

Haven't posted any ring work in a while. Here's a good dog meeting a great decoy in beautiful slow motion.

^Makes me want say "screw it" and just get a Pit (and another insurance carrier).

Of course, they have also suffered the bane of overpopularity.

I do have the connections to get a good game-bred performance Pit pretty easily, but I have been told those little guys are extremely high energy and can be quite destructive indoors.

Some of the UKC show/pet APBTs have been appealing, some others have been "show-ified" too much. Some friends of mine in the Tosa breed chose an APBT as their next dog. The wife's sister was very active in the UKC show scene, and they got a blue. He seemed to have a nice enough temperament. He had a head like a mini-DDB and he had some sort of respirationary condition that made him go "GRONK" with great frequency. (I seem to recall I may have told this story before. If so, my apologies for being repetitive.)

Are the Olde English Bulldogges a genuine improvement (in terms of health, mostly, though being more active would be a bonus as well) over other Bulldog breeds?

'cuz I fell in love with this little guy today on the web:

^ I saw a number of Old English Bulldogs (or Olde English Bulldogges or Victorian Bulldogs) when they first came out - Leavitt's dogs, the stuff that Naroditsky was breeding, even a Hermes dog - and I always liked them for what they were: a more athletic Bulldog. But they are a mix of a variety of bull and molosser breeds and therefore brought whatever problems those dogs had to the mix. In a lot of cases those gys used whatever they could get their hands on. Are they healthier than an English Bulldog? Everything is healthier than an English Bulldog. One of the few breeders I've seen that seems to have consistently good dogs is a guy named Chadde who created something called the Renascence Bulldogge. http://www.rbkc.net/ This is Dragon: I believe he has a French Ring Brevet. Face attack. A Bulldogge that clean is bloody miraculous. http://patriotbulldogs.com/files/MVI_2828.AVI Another nicely put together bulldogge: Ripped bitch: If I wanted a bulldogge I would look at these dogs. They may cost a fortune though being a "rare" breed. lefty

This dog will be killed. Should it be?
