...a small 'foofy' dog cannot inflict the kind of damage a pitbull is capable of. This is a no-brainer.

This is BS. A small dog can still inflict serious bodily harm to a cat, as well as a human being... and especially a child. I can attest to that, as I personally observed such an incident years ago, when a "small dog" ripped open the nose of a child and may have done much more damage if it had not been pulled off the kid pretty quickly.

This has nothing to do with breed, as much as it has to do with training, how the dog was raised, etc. I currently own a small dog which was not raised around children and is very cautious when children are around. I wouldn't even consider letting a child attempt to pet the dog, unless I had control of it. If a cat were in the yard, it would certainly attempt to go after it, just as it has the squirrels and birds... so far, it has only caught one bird, as we have since trained the dog to leave them alone. Now, he just sits and watches those, although he did chase after a possum recently.

I've been around pit bulls, rottweilers, dobermans, etc., which have been properly raised and have had no problems with walking up and petting them.

To proclaim any breed as a specific threat to society or not, is only a misinformed perception. Those that think otherwise, do not typically have a well informed knowledge of canines and usually do little more than perpetuate myths. It comes down to the care and raising of any pet, that typically determines its demeanor.

Well that's kind of my point. Everyone has always reacted negatively to my pit but just oohed and ahhed over my Yorkie, when actually- HE is the one that you ought not lean down and stick your face in his.

I was at the ball park with both dogs once and two children (about 6 & 8- old enough they should've been taught never to approach a strange dog) came over to pet the dogs & just walked right up and began to pet the dogs. The Yorkie backed away and hid behind me, glaring at the kids so they went to the pit and threw their arms around her neck and started rolling around on the ground with her. They were laughing and giggling and having a great time while the mom chatted me up. After about a minute and half she said, "So is she a full-blooded Lab?" I replied, "No." She asked, "Oh, she's mixed? With what?" I said, "She's not mixed, she's full blooded. She's just not a Lab." She said, "Oh? Then what is she?" I said, "She's a Pit Bbull." She gasped, snapped at her children to "Get up and get away from that dog! It's a bad dog!" and grabbed their hands and dragged them away as if I'd just said she was half boogey-monster. But she didn't care at all that I told her they needed to steer clear of the little one, because I couldn't guarantee that he wouldn't snap at them if they kept after him.(And yes, both dogs were on leashes)

Now come on...if the dang dog was going to eat her children, it certainly wouldn't've been AFTER she rolled over on her back and let them use her as a trampoline for a few minutes. THAT'S the kind of ignorance that ticks me off.

I admit it is a stereotype that goes with all the news stories you hear about them, but it is hard to ignore along with the power of their jaws. I have a friend that has a Pit. She is a very sweet and loveable dog and I play with her. But at the same time I keep my 7 year old away from her. I was attacked when I was 8 by a nieghbors German Shepard that I had played with many times. He had a "boo-boo" (LOL) that I didn't know about and I scratched him on it and he bit me in the face. It's the thought of how powerful that dogs jaws are, and the unknown, that makes me keep my little one away from her. I know that sounds hypocritical. But when I see him near her my mind goes back to what happened to me. What if she has a "boo-boo" and my little one does the same. That dog could snap his arm in one bite.

I agree with you. We always make sure to keep an eye on the baby (she's almost 1) and the dog. She loves the pit and so far the pit doesn't seem to care if she crawls all over her- but we don't let her. We don't let her jump all over her or bang on her or poke her in the eyes or pull her tail and we tell her (repeatedly) "Be easy, be sweet, be nice to Cinder." We don't leave her alone with the dog and sit right there with her when she pets her. I know how powerful the dog is/can be and that's why we take the precautions we do. Dogs aren't as capable of telling you, "Hey this kid is ticking me off, you'd better get them away from me or I'm gonna bite'em!" so we only let our little one pet her for right now, under our watchful supervision. The same goes with the little one. We make sure she doesn't pull his hair or pet him too hard, because to a baby- a Yorkie bite could do a lot of damage.

Plus, I know that dog bites can easily result from the animal being startled (sleeping dog, kid comes running and jumps in the middle of them) and hat dogs don't reason like people do. So regardless of the breed, children should always be supervised around dogs.

I know what you mean. My folks have a little Terrier, I'm guessing no more then 10-12 pounds. She is very protective of my mom and will snap at anyone who puts their hands out towards her. I went to show my mom a picture I had taken on my iPhone and she bit me. I thought it was kinda funny but she did leave teeth marks on my hand.

For the record...I bit her back. LOL Not hard, in a playful way.

I think all pit bulls, chows, dobermans, poodles and especially chihuahuas (the devil's own dog) should be put to sleep and ground up and made into food for the zoo animals.

Astoundingly, for most of our history America’s nickname for Pit Bulls was “The Nanny Dog”. For generations if you had children and wanted to keep them safe you wanted a pit bull, the dog that was the most reliable of any breed with children or adults.

The Nanny Dog is now vilified by a media that always wants a demon dog breed to frighten people and LHASA-APSO BITES MAN just doesn’t sell papers. Before pit bulls it was Rottweilers, before Rottweilers it was Dobermans, and before them German Shepherds. Each breed in it’s order were deemed too vicious and unpredictable to be around people. Each time people wanted laws to ban them. It is breathtakingly ironic that the spotlight has turned on the breed once the symbol of our country and our national babysitter.

In temperance tests (the equivalent of how many times your kid can poke your dog in the eye before it bites him) of all breeds the most tolerant was the Golden Retriever. The second most tolerant was the pit bull.
Pit Bull’s jaws do not lock, they do not have the most powerful bite among dogs (Rottweilers have that honor) they are not naturally human aggressive (in fact pit bull puppies prefer human company to their mother’s two weeks before all other dogs), and they feel as much pain as any other breed (accidentally step on one’s toe and you’ll see).

The most tolerant, patient, gentle breed of dogs is now embarrassingly portrayed as the most dangerous. It would be funny if the new reputation did not mean 6,000 are put to death every day, by far the highest number of any other breed euthanized.

That’s a lot of babysitters.

LOL, you think you can brainwash people with that bullshyt propoganda?

Pit Bulls/and their mixes kill more people than Rotties, German Shepherds and Dobies COMBINED every year over the last decade.

The pit bull is typically a people loving, intelligent and fun breed. Many excel at obedience training and dog sports such as agility, weight pull, frisbee, and flyball. Due to their affinity with people, this breed is a good candidate for rescue and adoption, but potential homes need to be carefully screened to insure that the new owners understand and accept the responsibility of owning a pit bull. Media hysteria and bad owners have greatly damaged this breed and every incident involving a pit bull makes it worse for the entire breed and their owners, often prompting breed specific legislation or breed bans.

Potential owners need to be informed of the pit bull's correct temperament, and need to be prepared to deal with the issue of dog aggression. Most pit bulls have a high prey drive and may chase small animals or livestock. This is NOT a breed for everyone! The only way to repair the pit bull's bad reputation is to keep them in the hands of responsible owners.

Getting bit by another breed such as a Lab, they only bite once and are done, kind of like getting punched by Justin Beiber.

Pit Bulls, dont one and done. They continue to maul, bite then rebite for a better grip, shake and tear apart until the object is either dead or in tatters. Kind of like getting pummeled by Mike Tyson until your brains spill out.
