You dumb MF'ers need to go!!!

I've heard the most stupid shit come out of the mouths of Pitbull owners.

They say, and I quote...."Its not the breed, its how you raise them".

Ok...let's say that's true...(not that I believe it)...

If it truly is the way they are raised, then if your Pitbull bites or attacks someone, then isn't it YOU that should be euthanized?

You can't have it both ways...its either YOU or the breed that's at fault.

More often than not its those people who are of a "criminal element" that choose Pitbulls.

I do not own a pit and I still think you are a jackass. I have friends (that are not criminals) that own pits and they are some of the best behaved dogs I have ever seen. I would not have one because I would have to deal with narrow minded a$$holes like you.

This should be put into law! Very good idea.

Do you dumbasses even know what breed of dog has the most reported bites per year? Its a Damn ankle biting Mexican Chihuahua! German shepherds, fiests, and rotwielers have more than pit bulls! Before you get a bad case of diarrhea of the mouth again, do some Damn research before you speak on a subject you know nothing about! I use dogs (of all kinds) to hunt with. Out of the woods, they are babies and very well behaved as well as gentle and listen well! My young daughter has her own dog. If ANY dog bites it should be put down. I agree with that! But, that foes for all breeds, not just the ones you deem dangerous through your uneducated assumption that all pits are bad. One last time, yall are dumbasses!!!!!!!!
Love My Pitts

Clearly u are dumb!! With the exception of the ONE comment which was "its the way they are raised"..that's exactly right...A pit has always been made out to be the worst dog ever when in fact their not!! Some ppl only get to see or hear about all the bad things they are capable of doin..Wake up!!Almost all dogs are just as able to do the same thing..I have 2grown pits an 7 pit puppies. Not long ago I had a pit that was very protective of his best friend that was a Chihuahua an a baby that was barely one yr old.listened perfect,but did protect what was his an after fighting with other dogs that came in OUR yard that usually stayed in our yard,he made mistake by goin somewhere he wasn't liked an got shot,for not much of a reason!! Any pit I have ever had has never tried to bite me or my family or friends..their life consisted of sleep,play,eat,ride,walk,swim and whatever else was goin on..pit bulls are sweet smart an protects the ones it loves..What's sad is the bad name a pit has. Crazy thing my son was attacked by a dog,had over a hundred stitches in his face,an NOT from a a Pit!!!

Pits can be wonderful PETS. Beautiful, loyal, protective, affectionate, big ole cuddle bunnies IF you raise them to be a part of the family.

They should be an INSIDE dog, truly one of the family, so that they are socialized.

Hopefully you wouldn't stick your kid or spouse outside and leave them chained; if so, I imagine they'd be pretty cranky and confused about what your expectations are of them, too! Lol

The thing with pits, or any large breed dog, really, is that to own one successfully and safely, an owner MUST MUST MUST be alpha to that dog. So must ALL other family members!! If you do not have the courage and boldness to teach your dog obedience and deference to you and all other family members (that he is at the bottom of the pack but that you've all got his back!) then you can run into a lot of problems.

Well " you know who" if it's just the dog, and only the dog then....

ALL pits are bad vicious monster killers

ALL people, let me say this again to make it clear.... ALL PEOPLE are horrific, terrible thieves, druggies, and killers.

ALL ANIMALS are terrible vicious killers as well.

Do you see how dumb you sound now?

Research the dog, origin, temperament, and be a responsible owner. Period.

What person, after their dog attacks someone is going to fess up to no socialization, no training, and abuse when an attack happens? NO ONE. It's going to be " He/ she was such a wonderful pet, I have no idea what happened... " and sob at the thought of euthanasia, knowing its their own damn fault!

People lie....statistics lie....

Educate yourself.

I'd rather be surrounded by dogs labeled vicious killers, where I have earned their trust and loyalty any day as opposed to a swarm of baby killing, grandmother raping, humans....because in essence.... You said it best, apparently it IS the breed, and WE are ALL the SAME..
i love my pits

I have had pits many pits and they were wonderful with my children and family never once have I had a bad situation with my pits the neighbors kids play ont yard daily with them now someone my dog didn't know walks up to the yard yeah your gonna get meet by them way I see it they are doing their job to protect me and my family even my neighbors and their kids my neighbors likes many of you thought these were awful dogs and at first wouldn't let their kids come to play but once they got to know us and the dogs they thought it was wonderful! So it is all in the owner and the time spent with the dogs and yes I hold the owners at fault when they fight these wonderful dog cause they turn them into monsters! And I don't agree with it! As far as not abiding by the law just cause you have a pit lmao really it's a dog do people that own little ankle biting dogs what are they??? Mexican smugglers lmao wow people need to grow up and research about the dogs! I love them! But understand they aren't for everyone!

Smarter- which statistics do you speak of? Statistics and reports show the pit to only be in the top ten for bites/attacks. 8 to be exact and of those 7 infront of it, the bear and wolf are inter top 6. You are more likely to be bitten in the wild by a animal than a pit bull. All the bad you hear about pits is "made for tv". You are more likely to die in a airplane or a car crash than being bitten/attacked by a pit.

Agree- someone gets bitten, news channels blow up.

The information I've read and disagree with : dogs bite.org

Yours? Seems more sensible.

Ive done multiple search through Google for "dog bite stats" and other sites as well. In my line of work, ive been chased by all types of dogs lol. O did a search to see what the most aggressive breed was and thats where I got the top ten list. Uninformed people are the pits worst enemy.

Very informative study done with multiple dogs and breeds. And as it stated, only 1 was a pit. Kinda makes ya wonder where they got a bad name other than Michael Vic. Hope this sheds light on a otherwise touchy subject for most. I love my dogs and if anyone messes with them, they need to beware of the owner, not the dog! They are like my kids, my family and ill do what it takes to protect them from dumbasses like the one that started this topic.

Absolutely. That is why I stated to the initial poster to become educated and if possible more familiar with the breed before passing on judgements. I feel dogsbite.org is negatively biased toward pitbulls, and that becomes clear when one reads the FAQ. In my time I have faced several different breeds myself. I carried treats... ;)

The study I posted the link to said only one (1) pit bull was aggresive. Sounds bout right to me :) and also, I now carry peanut butter balls with kibble mixed in. Not only can they not bark, but they love the treat ! Lol

it's just true that some breeds are more likely to turn then other breeds. it's just true.

pit bulls, chows and any wolf hybrid for instance are more likely to turn then a lab or shepherd.

How absolutely stupid can you possibly be, ANY dog can be vicious, not just pits. If they are trained to be social and friendly then that is what they are. Sometimes there are just bad dogs of any breed, just like there is with humans. I have four, yes four pits, they actually belong to my 12 and 14 yr old kids. And they love these kids more than anything, if we allow someone in our home or yard, the dogs are going crazy to get some kisses. BUT if you harm a hair on those kids heads, then you just have to pay the consequences. THAT is a great dog. And they are 100% pitbulls. Have been with us for several years. But guess what a doberman pincher, almost snatched my daughter's face off when she was 4. A chow chow bit my cousin in the face when she was two. So don't judge these dogs because they are pitties. I have several friends who's pits and rotties do work with children's hospitals, senior care homes, and tons of other great things.

If pit bull type dogs were so incredibly horrible, there would be a nationwide ban put in place by the government. All dog trainers, board certified behaviorists, veterinarians, dog show venues, and any other areas where dogs are involved would immediately put a stop to anyone owning one a huge fines would be in place for anyone having anything to do with the breed.

Did you know that "the American Medical Veterinary Association, American Dog Owners Association, American Kennel Club, Westminster Kennel Club, and National Centers for Disease Control, claim that dog owners bear the burden for properly training and socializing all dog breeds and properly confining and leashing dogs. They argue that the breed itself is not the problem - but the lack of socialization and training, and owner responsibility, is.

Opponents also claim that identifying one breed over another as more "dangerous" is meaningless, because from year to year the breed of dog responsible for the most serious bites and attacks often changes, frequently in proportion to how popular the breed is overall. Accurate information on dog bites and the proportion of bites to breeds is difficult to determine at best, because accurate statistics would require "comprehensive reports of all bites, reliable breed identification, and detailed information about the demographics of the entire dog population of the area in question. Such numbers are often unreliable since compliance with local dog licensing or registration requirements is usually below 20% in most U.S. communities. While a few dog bite statistical studies have been attempted, bite-rate analysis cannot be accurate without a comprehensive census of dog population in the United States. One study reported, however, that, of 101 animals in the study, pit bulls and put bull mixes were responsible for the largest number of bites, followed by German Shepherd Dogs and mixes, Siberian Huskies, Malamutes, Dobermans, and Rottweilers. Until more extensive statistical studies, using comprehensive counts of dogs and reliable breed identification, can be conducted, dog bite study results will not be certain enough to form the foundation for BSL, and even then the wisdom of BSL is suspect." - from http://www.animallaw.info/articles/aruslweiss...

Happy reading to all of you and for those of you that oppose pit bull type dogs, you are free to do so, just as many of us are free to own them and love them. They work as therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs and have saved countless lives just like other breeds out there. Do they have powerful jaws? Yes they do. Are they capable of doing severe damage? Yes they are. But so are many other breeds of dog and many other animals in general.

I'm off to go and live a life of danger, cuddle up with my handsome pittie boy and I just pray he doesn't rip my face off at any moment!

what's why people use the term 'turn'.
they're good dogs that suddenly 'turn' on their owners.
I know of a little girl who was minding her own business, playing in the yard near a friends dog she had played near a hundred times before.
Not being spastic, loud or spooking the dog in any way and the dog suddenly lunged at her and bit her face.
the dog 'turned'.
pit bulls 'turn'.
