Dogs are not color blind. Its a myth. They cannot see the same spectrum as we can though, I think its blue or yellow they can't see.
@Sr5turbo, actually, it's only blue and yellow they can see. They can also see green, but only because it's a mix of blue and yellow. Everything else looks like a weird shade of one of those colors to them.
@Sr5turbo, in humans that would be considered colorblind. Colorblind =\= can’t see colors. It’s cannot distinguish some colors from others.
@big freedom, When talking about anything other than humans, colorblind generally means that they can't see color, unless someone specifies a color. For example, someone might say that bulls are colorblind to red, but they likely would not say they are colorblind in general.
@Sr5turbo, how exactly we know they only see in these colors?
@freakazoid, structure of their eyes. We know that certain rods and cones absorb certain light spectrums.
@big freedom, but colorblind as a condition is defined as a mutation in the color receptors that prevents someone from seeing colors others can or swaps around what colors we can see. We can't apply it to another species except in the context of if that other species is colorblind compared to other members of that species, because although dogs may be "colorblind" compared to us, we're "colorblind" compared to most other animals. For example, Mantis shrimp can see over twice as many colors as we can.
Actually, IF I remember correctly (which I usually forget most everything so I could be wrong), dogs can, in some form, be racist. A dog spends its entire life around one race and not another will avoid other races because of fear and uncertainty. If a white family were to raise a dog, and it were never to be exposed to a person of color, its completely possible that its first encounter with someone of color could incite fear, uncertainty, or even possibly aggression in the dog. And the same goes for a family of color raising a dog. This is why (especially if you want a working dog or service dog) you should expose your dog to as many types of people, environments, and sounds you can around the 3-4 to 12 week period.
@Arealchocolatechip, my buddy had an american pit (I think) and she never saw a black person. Then our black friend came over and she wouldn't stop barking amd running away for hours.
she also was scared of people in hats.
@no comprendo, I think hats freak most dogs out, because I think dogs assume the top part of our body is our head, so to them people with hats might look like freaky nightmare monsters.
@Arealchocolatechip, I’m gonna day you’re lying just because I don’t believe you’re a real chocolate chip so theretofore I can’t believe anything u say
@bobbylupo, I guess you aren't wrong. I'm not that nice of a guy in all honesty. Really, I'm only sometimes a chocolate chip.
@Arealchocolatechip, I knew it how dare u deceive us
@bobbylupo, I'll start my 3 part apology by saying you're all great people
@Arealchocolatechip, ok that’s a good start I forgive u
Race isn't always about color. People from India and what they call 'white' are both Caucasian race for example
@dj evolve fan club, true point dude. racism even happens within races itself. I used to work at Popeye’s with some Muslims and was straight up told that “ white muslims” don’t like “dark muslims”. Wierd day
If you're color blind you can still see black and white just sayin
But if they weren’t...
Throw a pitbull in there... see what happens.... labradors are one of the most loving dogs ever... they will put themselves in danger to save their human friends... notice all the downvotes... is statistics, don’t blame me, blame the insurance companies
@seeUpee, don’t make me hate you dude, as an owner of pit bulls 3 in my life, the most aggressive dog I’ve met was a 8 year old long hair chihuahua
@DrSin, I got nothing but love for you bro, since day one and you know it!...and you still won’t tell me where you from... like I said... look at the statistics man!!!... just saying what is up
@DrSin, I agree with this, growing up around pitbulls for practically my whole life I can definitely say that they are kind hearted animals just as any other dog breed.
Many pitbulls aren't born aggressive... they are MADE to be aggressive by their owners.
@Dont tell Dave, until dog fighing came about they were known as the "nanny dog". Look it up on AKC.
@Sr5turbo, yup, I just typed a paragraph about that but I forgot to edit fück and it didn’t save :(
@seeUpee, never met an aggressive pitbull once. Met tons of tiny aggressive dogs but every single pit bull ive met has been a giant baby
@GunLovingMerican, I get it man! But trust me, I might love dogs more than you do. I have been attacked by a pitbull so is whatever.
@DrSin, yeah you respond to turbo... but not me... tisk... tisk
@seeUpee, ah i can understand where your coming from then my dude. Im really sorry to hear that happened.
@seeUpee, yo dude... I've been... like... attacked by... you know.............
Other dogs too.................. it's not just.... a pit bull thing.. yo................
@seeUpee, actually the statistics indicate that the top three bite risks are chihuahuas, dachshunds, and jack russels with chow chow being the first large dog on the list. Insurance companies are worried about pits because if they bite it’s going to be a much larger hospital bill than if a little dog bites. So while the little dogs bite at a much higher rate they can’t do near the damage pits can which is why pits carry their reputation
Edit: I tried to go back and find the site with the info I just said and couldn’t. I did find that there were a lot of very different lists some saying pits are and others having them farther down the list. So I guess it’s hard to accurately say what’s true.
That being said I’ve worked in a kennel now for years and can say from personal experience dealing with hundreds of dogs that our biggest bite risks are normally smaller dogs or German shepherds. We’ve actually only had 1 bite risk pit since I’ve been there and she was fear aggressive.
@seeUpee, my younger brother was actually not bothered but a pit bull the got out on his way to school with friend, 10 years old and school was 2 blocks away like 7min walk, a lady had to pit and one windy ass day the fence was snapped open and the dog got out the 4 kids freak out and ran on top of a car the dog just said their wagging his tail, they got down pet it and went to school, 1 year later he was walking home 2 houses down 1 friend went home my brother was walking home around 3pm my dad just got home pulling into the garage, a German Shepard started running after him and attacked him, my dad rushes over to help the dog was fast but my brother got bite on the back and did damage, my dad kicked and broke that dogs jaw, and they tried to sue use even though my brother was hospitalized, that was 8-9 years ago, I trust that pit more than even after that and the lady would sit outside with her two pits watching the kids go to school after that
@seeUpee, I've been attacked by a pit before. they were bred for combat, they shouldn't be bred for civilians
@Dephenistrator, you too?only one that backs me up. I have been attacked twice, different events, years apart, different pits too. Only dog breed that I can’t trust and I have friends that have pits too. Not saying all are bad
@seeUpee, i agree, I've met some good ones to. Despite my love for dogs, i have been attacked by dogs quite a few times and all but one of them were pits. One was a snouzer (i am almost certain i spelled that wrong) once i dodged a bite as a dog walker walked a pit by me. It just looked at me the whole time until we were side by side and the dog just at me and i pulled away only getting my jacket sleeve ripped
@seeUpee, statistically, pitbulls are more like my to be owned by àssholes that teach them to be vicious. It’s the people not the breed. Unless it’s a chihuahua... they are just fûcking mean.
@big freedom, I rather stomp a chihuahua away than a pitbull that has clamped down on my leg and not letting go
@seeUpee, sorry you've been hurt by them before, I see where you're coming from, but like most others have said, its more likely from poor training on the owners part then by the dog itself. Hopefully you meet one someday who has a owner who has properly trained their dog, so you can see and experience yourself how kind and loving the breed really is.
@seeUpee, while I agree with the sentiment that an aggressive pit is scarier than an aggressive rat dog, pits are naturally gentle. Its wannabe gangsters wanting a "tough" dog and training/ abusing into aggressive behaviour that gives them a bad reputation.
@seeUpee, where I live, pitbulls are owned by dealers who think that a dog makes them invincible. Some are so cowardly, they have two or three pitbulls on ropes as they go to the store to buy tobacco. As everyone knows, the dogs attitude is a consequence of how much the owner abuses the dog and teaches it to bite hard and not let go. But we also understand that smaller dogs are more aggressive, but less likely to do any real lasting damage.
@seeUpee, never get attacked by a German Shepard, or Golden retrievers, both dogs are smarter and go for vitals, they attack more than pit bulls, they might chomp and not let go, but the other two breeds will keep biting vitals spots so count your blessing you haven’t ran into an aggressive germen or golden
@Dephenistrator, who the fück breeds anything for combat ? What is your explanations for this wild statement
@DrSin, one of the best dogs I've ever had in my life was a brindle pittie named maddie. She loved playing, being a goofball and was one of the most affectionate dogs till she was old and passed quietly in her sleep. Also fvck chihuahuas, those arent dogs. They're overgrown mutated rats.
@Dephenistrator, that's weird, out of all my combat tours I cant say I've seen a single pitbull. I see a bunch of Belgian malinois and german shepards though.
@big freedom, ha, I wanna see that survey. “Are you the owner of a pit bull, yes or no? Are you an asshole, yes or no?”
@DrSin, you might need to look up history
@Dephenistrator, history ..... not current day
@DrSin, oh good god, they were bred not just for being strong but specially for being aggressive. They were selected as the best fighting dogs in their litter and like only several other dog breeds like dobermans, were bred into existence for purposes such as this and did not exist beforehand
@Dephenistrator, you do realize you don’t have a point here, Pit bull where NANY DOGS!!! If you don’t know that your argument is already falling apart
@DrSin, unless you can undo the part where they were breed for the purpose of pit fighting then i don't think this is a debate i just think your clamoring for an excuse because you knew some nice dogs
@seeUpee, what statistics r u talking about if you’re trying to say that pit bulls attack ppl more then any other dog then that’s true but it’s not because the dog is bad or naturally more aggressive the reason for that is because pit bulls r the breed that r used for dog fights and when u train a dog for that purpose they r treated horriblly and the ppl that train them to fight basically create a broken dog that would be the equivalent to a psychotic serial killer because they were so messed up that they really didn’t have a chance to be good and because of this they’re turned into bad dogs. If any other breed was treated like this then they would be more likely to attack so again pit bulls aren’t more aggressive in fact they r some of the friendliest and most playful dogs. As the great corky Romano once said bad dogs aren’t born they’re made
@Dont tell Dave, “bad dogs aren’t born they’re made” corky romano
@GunLovingMerican, okay so if I get mugged by a black guy I can just be a little racist afterwards? What the fvck?
@seeUpee, a mexican guy punched me one time now I dont trust Mexicans
@Natural Sarcasm , I think pit bulls r so feared not cause they’re more likely to bite but like u said when they do bite they will fück u up
@Dephenistrator, u we’re probably attacked cause dogs can smell fear I’ve never been attacked by a dog or any other animal because I’m a real man and dogs can tell that I’m the alpha and the omega... I’m kidding but seriously dogs can sense fear so even if you’re afraid u can’t let them know it because that can cause them to be more aggressive
@bobbylupo, that's the most pathetic counter argument in this thread. XD
@spelcheck , what? What the fvck does that have to do with anything i said?
@spelcheck ,i guess youre referring to my reply back to seeupee? Have you ever heard of a phobia? Getting fvcked up by animal can cause it, sometimes that doesnt just go away. I have a bad phobia of heights because my cousin held me over a 2 story banister when i was very young. Dont try and turn this into something racist kid.
@Dephenistrator, that first part was obviously a joke that went over your head even though I said it was a joke XD but animals really can tell when you’re afraid so for animals such as canines if u turn your back and run they will attack u but seeing as how u said you’ve been attacked b4 obviously u know better and your method is working out for u XD XD
My dogs are racist. They are scared of and bark at every black person they see and love and adore Asians
Black Labs Matter...
Black labs dont commit more crime than yellow labs... Humans on the other hand...
My dog barks at anything brown... even through she’s brown.
I think my dog came racist.... she only barks at black people..... and it’s really embarrassing. I pray no one thinks we trained her to do that.
Nah, it happens, I’ve seen Key & Peele.
