Why would anyone want a pitbull? It'll just bite someone sooner or later.

Any dog can bite, they don't have to be pitbulls. NO I don't have pits so don't say that is why I'm defending them. It is all in how you treat a dog.

out of 100,s even 1000's of breeds, they still pick pits for 1 reason only, even if they keep denying it. Plenty of dogs are suitable for the same "positive attributes" they claim they are seeking when getting a pit. However, they choose pits for the sole reason of their reputation. Why else would they choose one that has so many people that feel negatively about and a breed that potentially in the future will be made illegal to own in certain cities.... want a guard dog? Plenty out there that you can get that people AREN'T scared of and that DO NOT have the reputation of being a volatile breed. Need we bring up the old post from months ago where the poster listed the stats of pitbull attacks vs other breeds? Come on folks, if you own one fine, but quit trying to convince yourself and others you have innocent intentions when seeking one out. Get real.

it gives.them a false.sense of security or makes them feel like they are in a rap video . i personally would rather invest in S&W...... at least i know a gun won't attack my neighbors dog or kid if it gets loose.

There is already legislation that has been introduced in many states to ban the breeding of pitbulls and if passed will require owners to register their dog as a deadly weapon and will also require them to be fixed and not re-produce. Not sure if we should go to the extreme of killing them like you say, that's a little crazy.... Eventually, the law will catch up to it. Until then, we must tolerate and respect people's freedom of choice and hope the bills get passed quickly. Pit bull lover's will soon have to be a dog lover of a different breed. I think it's a little crazy why people want any "breed" of dog specifically. Every dog I had has been great, I don't need to seek out a special breed.... so the argument they are seeking them out for a reason makes sense.... I guess the exception being a hunting "coon" hound maybe... the best dog I have ever owned was a 90lb mutt from the pound.(RIP sally).

You are right. But, unfortunately, I think pit owners for the most part have not so nice intentions. And they teach the dog that.

Anyone who says negetive things about this breed needs to do a little research, you obviously have no idea what you are talking about, and uneducated morons like you are what gives the breed a bad name. I have many of these dogs and they are perfect, no issues at all and that goes for all APBT owners who care for their dogs and treat them how they should be. If most of you can read, you should look at the agression tests and see out of 100+ breeds, pits placed in the top 3 for tolerance before agression, breeds like blood hounds and dalmations were far more agressive, so before you open your mouth, do a little reading, (if you have trouble with a word, ask someone) for help, you can do this I have faith in you.

pulled this up for your reading pleasure. From an older post...

I have seen a couple of discussions on here regarding pit bulls. I am fairly neutral on the subject, I truly believe that they can be good pets if raised properly. But... many defend them and say they are just like any other breed. They are not. THis doesn't mean they are necessarily evil and should be banned, but the argument they are a docile animal and completely safe is just not true. In 2011, out of 31 deaths related to dog maulings, 22 were from Pit Bull terriers. 4 were from Rottweilers. The other 5 were from 5 different breeds. So stats don't lie.
In contrast.... The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published in 2000 a study on dog bite-related fatalities (DBRF) that covered the years 19791998. The study found reports of 238 people killed by dogs over the 24-year period, of which "pit bull terrier" or mixes thereof were reportedly responsible for killing 76, or about 32 percent, of the people killed by dogs in the attacks identified in the study. The trend as you can see is increasing, one, because the popularity of the breed has increased, but also because of the purpose as to which they are raised has increasingly leaned towards a "fighting" animal, through cultural stereotypes and demographics of owners. If you own one great.... but
Please , if you have a pit bull, make sure it is always secured and never left alone unsupervised around children.

and this....

Also, related to the same above referenced CDC study, The breed with the next-highest number of attributed fatalities was the Rottweiler and mixes thereof, with 44 fatalities or about 18 percent of the study-identified fatalities. In aggregate, pit bulls, Rottweilers, and mixes thereof were involved in about 50% of the fatalities identified over the 20-year period covered by the study, and for 67% of the DBRF reported in the final two years studied (19971998. As you see, the trend continues to grow.

Don't buy a pit bull if there are children close to where you live.

I really wouldnt mind hitting you in the face Egor, your an idiot, I've had kids hanging off of my dogs ears and they just stand there. This is all a myth and as for the guy up there trying to sound smart with pitbull stats, they are almost triple the amount of APBT than any other breed, so yea if they are 3 times more, they probably will have more cases, that's common sense. Also with the deaths, it isnt that pitbulls attack anymore than other dogs, it's just when some idiot does something stupid to MAKE them attack, (and yes they do not do it just because they feel like it) they will not stop. Does not mean they should attack at all, treat them how they should be and not as a weapon. Sure they are responsible for 1/3 of dog bites in US, but with the number of these dogs in the US that's to be expected, do some math and keep your 3rd grade, hear say comments to yourself.

Insulting someone on topix is pretty 3rd grade in itself, especially when that person said no ill comments towards you. The comments above from me were quotations from someone on a different thread, no need for me to try and "act smart". That was someone else's research. I can't take credit for those facts. The only reason I posted them is because you hurled insults before saying noone had done any research and attacking their IQ. The truth hurts, and apparently angers some that can't figure out how to communicate except to spew IQ insults. Have a great day with your dogs.

It doesnt matter what you put on here, someone is always going to have something negative to say,ESP about pits. I was bit by a dog whem I was young and believe it or not, it wasnt a pit bull! I have one and shes honestly the best dog I have ever owned. My girlfriend has a golden retriever and shes the one that makes me nervous! Ive had pitbulls since I was young, along with other dogs, and ive never once had a single problem out of any of them. And im pretty sure I didnt buy my pit bull because I wanted to look "cool" or for "protection"..she'd be the first to hide. My female pit sleeps with our cat, and lays all over my girlfriends nephew(has been around him since he was born,along with other kids) all the time! Any dog can be aggressive if not trained properly. Everyone always wants to talk about when a pit bull has done something, but did you hear about the Pomeranian that ate a newborns face off while he was sleeping in his crib? But that doesnt matter,right? Dont be ignorant and hate something you dont know.
