Just saving his men from a gas attack was plenty.

I don’t see any “Boston Terrier” there.

Muzzle’s too long and he’s too tall.

Except for his color, he looks very much like my long gone “light” version AmStaff, Rowan.

Godsakes, people will strain gnats for no good reason at all.

I see that Stubby’s “history” is being rewritten to vanish his “pit bull” origins.

God forbid one be a hero, these days.

You are referring to me.

Sal, bear in mind we agree a lot. Here we know we part ways.

BTW, I’ve read some of the news articles of the day. He was indeed sometimes referred to as a Boston Bulldog, Boston Bull Terrier, and so on. AT THE TIME. Bostons were very different in those days and closer to their fighting past. History is not being changed, it is being turned back to what it actually was. He certainly did not have to be pure anything, as he was simply found in Hartford. Origins unknown.

Bear in mind that advocates try to tell us we can’t always tell a PBT type when dogs maul someone. Yet in this and other isolated “ambassador” cases they say he must be PBT. Which is it? Seems convenience determines when a dog is a PBT.

We disagree on these things. No doubt. We also agree a lot. Hope you don’t hold it against me too much. We’ve had some interesting discussions.
