“In fact, “Pit Bull” isn’t a breed, but a term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Bull Terrier, the American Staffordshire Terrier, and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.”
Unfortunately Pit Bulls are usually thought of as dangerous and aggressive dogs.
Any incident that a dog is involved in is never the dogs fault it is only the fault of the person who is supposed to be in charge of the dog.
Why is the Pit Bull a popular dog breed?
People have created this negative stero-type of Pit Bulls and that is why Pit Bulls are commonly seen shelters.
Many people are kind and go to shelters to adopt Pit Bulls because they want to break that bad stero-type.
Did you know that Pit Bulls are actually banded from some countries?
“Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting. When those sports were deemed inhumane and became illegal 1835, dog-fighting sprung up in its place — and thus was the trait for dog aggression bred into the genetic line.” – http://dogtime.com/dog-breeds/american-pit-bull-terrier#/slide/2
Each bolded word below is a reason for why the Australian Shepard is a popular breed and each paragraph below goes into further detail on that reason. This post also shows the history of the Australian Shepard breed.
Australian Shepards are a very popular dog breed because of their fur markings and eye color, size, and their intelligence.
Aussies are beautiful
Australian Shepards (Aussies) are well known for their beautiful fur markings. They are often bred with other types of dogs for their pretty markings. There are two known categories on how we describe an aussie’s fur marking. One of the categories would be merle colors and the other category would be tri-colors.
According to an Oh Tiny Heart blog post, the proper way to create a merle colored aussie is to breed a tri colored aussie and a merle colored aussie. When you breed a merle colored aussie and a tri-colored aussie there is a 50% chance that each individual puppy will be merle colored or tri colored. “Common sense tells breeders: if merle is a dominant color gene, why don’t we breed 2 merle colored dogs and increase our odds? Sure, that could work.” – Oh Tiny Heart blog post
But when you breed to merle dogs genetic defects are more common for the puppies. Breeding to merle dogs is called a double merle, it possess both dominant merle genes. “Double merle dogs; while it is a gene and not a color per se, are typically described as mostly white, with light, sometimes minimal merling patterns. Due to this lack of pigment, the dog is prone to hearing and sight issues.” – Oh Tiny Heart blog post
Aussies have a variety of different eye color combinations. For example one of Orlov’s eyes is blue and the other one is a very dark brown.
An Aussies size
Aussies come in miniature and standard sizes. Therefore they are great apartment dogs if trained well, and if they have a proper amount of exercise. If aussies do not get out their energy then they may knock over things and run around in the house.
They are focused and intelligent dogs
They take direction very well, and are very focused. They are energetic and therefore they can be great agility dogs. They love to run and jump.
According to AKC, “Although there are many theories about the origin of the Australian Shepherd, the breed as we know it today developed exclusively in the United States.” Aussies were bred as herding dogs. Since they were bred as herding dogs they need lots of exercise to minimize their energy levels. Therefore they are great agility dogs.
As you know we love animals. We take photos of them to share our love for them. That’s why The Tween Dogist Instagram was created. We take photos of your pet(s) for memories that will last forever. Each moment caught on camera is a permanent memory, but just a instant of that memory.
That’s the main reason why we take photos of our pets. That’s this blog post was created to show you the qualities of a perfect pet photo.
Quality is what matters most while taking the photo.
Make sure you photo is not blurry. If it’s blurry because that’s how it focuses then that’s fine. I suggest using a professional camera if you want it to be the best quality possible.
The Pet’s Body Positioning
It definitely matters what the pet’s body position is. If the pet was turned around that probably wouldn’t be the best photo possible, because you can’t see it’s facial expression. Facial expressions are important in photos because they show how that pet feels in that instant. So, if the pet was facing you then you can see how the pet feels in that instant, are they excited, are they a bit scared.
Get Down to Your Pet’s Level
If you get down to your pets level you will probably have a better photo than if you are standing and taking a photo them.
This is a picture of Isabella while I’m standing
And this is a photo of her when I’m at her level
See, when you are at the dog’s level you get a better photo with more detail. It also doesn’t look like you are looking down at your pet.

OTH scarves come in all different colors and patterns. The designs are very unique.
I ordered a blue one called the ROBIN (yes I know I don’t have a dog yet, but still it was too cute and pretty not to purchase.)
The price for one scarf is between 19 to 48 dollars depending on which one you choose. There is free shipping in the US for orders over $150. Through it is a bit pricey the scarves are high quality, limited, and take time to make even through they are sewn with a machine. The handmade fringe ones are usually more money because that takes even more time.

How to take the best dog photos/How I take photos on my @thetweendogist instagram account
🐾The best dog photos when taken need patience.
🐩 Step 1: Have some thing the dog wants for instance a squeaky toy or treat.
🐶 Step 2: Move this object around your camera’s lens. This way the dog will be looking the lens. Tip: If the dog is a bit jumpy at first wait for it to calm down and then take a/the photo when they are calm. I guarantee that photo will come out great.
🐕 Step 3: Well… There is no step three. It’s as easy as that all you need is patience, and a camera.
Here are some of my favorite dog photos: They are among the many photos I have taken.
