What does the Expert say?
Author Dr Simon Harding said:
“It has become less about whether the dog will fit into family life and more about ‘what will this dog do for me, how much will it make me?’ The dog says ‘I am here to be taken seriously’ – it acts as a ‘minder’ and a ‘heavy’ when collecting dues. People believe that possession of an aggressive dog means that the threats posed by such men will be carried out.”
A 16-year-old boy told Dr Harding “It’s not just a dog, it’s a half bull mastiff and half pit bull. I’ll probably get another. We are looking to breed it and we would get about £2,000 per dog.”
A boy of 17 said of his pit bulls: “People know that if you are breeding you are making money from them.”
