Thanks Ready Pits.
Pit bulls will generally excel in activities that require sustained determination and that test their bodies'
ability to endure pain and exhaustion to an extreme. But the fact is that there are very few activities that will test a dog's
gameness to its limits, or that will provide a basis for comparing one dog's degree of gameness to another's. For example,
wild boar hunting, in spite of the high level of risk to the dog involved, doesn't really test the limits of a dog's gameness.
The tangle between boar and dog is fast, furious, and generally quite short (compared with a pit contest). Athletic ability,
agility, explosive power, strength of bite, and smarts are of a higher priority here than gameness, which never really has
a chance to come into play in so brief an encounter. The dog will either take the boar down or be killed before the depth
of his gameness can make much of a difference.
