(Bite Force Competition Between Rottweiler, German Shepherd, and Pitbull 1) Clearly, the APBT does not have the biggest bite force. In fact, it is relatively low! Since all three of the supposed ‘facts’ are actually fiction, we can conclude that APBTs have no difference in the structure and function of the jaw. Due to this fact, APBTs should be authorized to travel anywhere that other breeds are. A second reason that the American Pitbull Terrier should be allowed access to every region that other varieties are is they are no more dangerous than other popular breeds. Many believe…

    Discrimination of the dogs A very sad trend has developed in this country, a trend of the discrimination of dogs by their breed.
