What happens when you cross a pit bull and a porcupine?

These were posted on a family site yesterday. Apparently my brother in law's neighbor's dog caught up with a nocturnal trash thief, and this was the result:

Don't think that's possible with a pitbull nature!

Ouch! That's real love and sacrifice -- to endure that much protecting your owners trash!

I've seen coon hounds get into a porky and its a real job pulling quills, we used to carry a syringe full of??? to quiet the dog for the operation, just in case. Never saw one get it that bad tho! Just when you think you have a smart hound, he does the porky thing over and over again!

That is NOT a Pitbull!!!!

That is a Bull Terrier.

Like "Spuds McKenzie" for those who are old enough to remember the commercials.

Poor baby.

From what I'm told, he's fine now-- those pics were taken last fall. But I'm told this dog DID learn his lesson. He sees a porcupine and SCATS in the other direction, howling like he's just been beaten!

Poor thing, glad he's doing okay!

joepyeweed - The Bull Terrier is one of my favorite breeds! The Pit Bull is not a type of Bull Terrier. The Bull Terrier was the crossing of the Bulldog, Old (AKA Whiite) English Terrier (now extinct) and a bit of Spanish Pointer Blood. In 1830!!

The Pit Bull was derived from a variety of Bull and Terrier type dogs. It is note exactly known of which ones.

Most breeds have come to be through the combination of other breeds. Take the Doberman for example, he is the combination of German Pinschers, Rottweilers, Beauceron, Pinschers, Greyhounds, English Greyhounds and Great Danes! In the 1860's! Today, in the year 2007, you would never hear someone say the Doberman is a type of Great Dane or Grey Hound. They are a stand alone breed far removed from their origins.

The same stands for the Pit Bull.

It is easy to see that it is a Bull Terrier.

The egg shaped head, the ears and the body are all different than a Pitbulls. The ears and head are much longer than a Pits and the body isn't as powerful.

Bull Terriers may be dog aggressive as most terriers are, but they are never people aggressive and have been bred for companionship for many, many years.

Of course, even if it was a Pitbull, it is wrong to think it deserved such pain for doing what it was bred to do.

That's quite a picture. Poor dog... glad it's all over with. Just wondering where the "debate" part of this post is... where is the question that we are supposed to take sides on or give opinions of? I must have missed something. I didn't think I was THAT dense!

vacuumfreak-- no debate. I saw those pics, and was so dumfounded, I had to post em. I apologise if I posted them in the wrong place.

I thought the debate was Pit Bull or Bull Terrier? :)

How did the porcupine come out of this? Christy

I can't believe the dog survived. Doesn't each quill have to be surgically removed?
