i have owned several pit bulls three at a time even. they are very tolerable, and ppl have this assumption that they are dangerous and should be put down well... i also have a yorkie and my yorkie is more dangerous than my pits.... yes a little 8 lb yorkie. my yorkie has bitten before, she will go after other dogs, i must say honestly i have never had a pit that has attempted to bite.

<quoted text>Amen!, may i ask what other breeds?, I've had a Doberman, germanshepard,and a Rotweiler, all docile(but trained) dogs, i would never consider a pit, and want to kill everyone i see i hate those f'ing dogs, everywhere you go it's the same over,and over pit bull, mauls kills some one,oh and have you noticed it's usually the borderline RETARD/wanna be tuffguy that has pit's....
Hey jason !!! you are right....It's the punks that make it look bad.But for some reason,this dog just snapped...I have seen some handlers have very nice pits,for many years.But the key word in that article is (one of it's owners)sounds to me like their was a alpha,or territory thing going through this dogs head.What ever it was turned out bad.

Pit bulls were bred to fight to the death. They are so over bred now that injuries and deaths from these dogs are epidemic. If the state would pass a law to spay and neuter dogs these pit bulls would have a better chance, but as it is, they are everywhere. The are phallic symbols for inferior men and boys. They fill up shelters. They are not cared for by many irresponsible owners. They are not trained by irresponsible owners. They are a serious problem. I can't dislike the breed itself because I love all dogs, but these dogs are a real problem because of ignorant laws and ignorant owners. The innocent public is paying with lives taken and serious injuries. Someting must be done. It's a shame.

Sorry for the woman who was attacked. I am a pit bull owner and have two, they r how u raise them! My dogs r loyal and if u own pits, be able to control them and be responsible. Pit Bull is the only breed of dog i would own. They r better than a 357!

Why is it so hard for some people to understand that some animals should not be kept as pets...?

Do like many areas of Canada (if not all areas of Canada now) and ban Pit Bulls.

If an entire country bans a certain breed how can anyone say it is a safe breed.

Apbt are banned in the Uk and a lot of other countries (even a few states in usa). This is because idiots leave their dogs roam loose, and harm/kill other dogs and children.
Then you have kids 14-18 years old that use these dogs as a power symbol on the streets. These kids cannot control their dogs, the police should enforce every pitbull is chipped and put down the ones that aren't on the spot. Also the pieces of shit walking these animals need to remember their dogs are bred to KILL other dogs so keep them on a muzzle and lead at all times.

If all owners of every dog did the following, there would be much less attacks:

Keep dogs on a leash in public and under control at all times (muzzle if needed).
Keep your dogs from roaming the streets - Kennel, keep dog in the house, Teach simple commands to the dog.

The number of idiots that let their dogs walk free near kids playgrounds and parks. Think first - for all the retards out there that like the attention, feeling pretty hard. Grow some balls, and think if you had kids or a dog and some dog killed them because the owner didn't take responsibility. You have to live with that on your conscious forever.

Pit bulls along with several other breeds should be permanently banned. These are dangerous animals that are bred to kill. The killer instinct cannot be "loved" out of them. Destoy them all , nationwide!

This report is telling the public that a Pit Bull can be docile= Pit Bull owners will take this to mean a reflection of their own personality. One wrong move according to Pit Bull owners does not make them vicious. Convoluted logic! The owner is being blamed for the dogs actions- step one it isn't about the dog anymore. The dog won't comprehend the insult of the an attack-[It's a cop out] because the owner will. The woman in west Volusia County Fl that tied her Pit Bull tightly to a tree took the responsibility as a dog owner to defend that the leash or apparatus was tight. Not wanting to accept the responsibility because the reputation of a Pit Bull is Placed On The Owner and the reputation is dangerous. In a follow up story by Wesh2 news the woman was backed into a corner and mentioned I"M NOT saying it wasn't my fault that another dog died. Under pressure they take the blame for a Pit Bulls actions- which does make them an irresponsible owner on different levels- One denial- two refusal 3 guilt. The owner was aware of the dangerous reputation. it's a cop out. A Pit Bull terrier in cross breeding with traits that may also include a boxer can be blamed for having an aggressive personality- the owner is aware of the mix the genetic connection is still unexplained and a Pit Bull Terrier- with Boxer traits dominant to the terrier gene can be blamed for having a Pit Bull personality. Or the Pit Bull gene can be dominant with an excuse that the traits are more involved in Terrier breeding. It's a cop out.

It's ok for you to own a small dog that will cause minimal damage or no damage to a larger dog, but- they will attack a dog of the same size and get hurt in the process and defend themselves. That's ok! for you. It doesn't sound fair to either of your dogs if they have to be walked separately so you will walk them together keeping in mind that any one person on dog will not be intimidated by the Yorkie they will be intimidated by the Pit Bull the reputation pressed itself again that regardless of how you choose to spin the story You're still wrong being wrong is your problem the dog just helps
