People like this who own Pit bulls are mostly to blame for their bad reputations. They get them to have as a "status" symbol. Never say never! ANY Dog can bite someone, especially a stranger. Pit Bulls were originally bred to fight. Add in all of the inbreeding over the years, and it is a recipe for disaster. Most people who buy them have no clue as to their background in regards to family history. They just want them to have as a status symbol. I guess the thugs in the Honey Hole think they are cool by owning them. I could also care less if some illiterate child from Riverdale hates me for not wanting to own a Pit Bull. I have seen what they do unprovoked, and I am not willing to take that chance at all when I have young nieces who visit my home. I am also not going to get a dog that I have to lock up in a room anytime that I have company over, out of fear that they may bite one of them. Just make a note that anytime one of these dogs mauls to death a kid or an elderly person, someone is on the news stating that these very killers never showed any signs of aggression, and we're always sweet to everyone. They snap, just like a human who's psychotic can snap out of the blue. It's in their nature. The sooner people accept this fact, then those who own these ticking time bombs can make sure they are put up at all times-so that they do not put anyone at risk for an attack from one of them.
People hate you for not owning a pitbull? Paaaaaaaaaalease. What planet do you live on. The ticking time bomb is your imagination.

I was bit by a loving pet pit. I was riding my bike, doing nothing whatsoever to provoke the dog. He chased and bit. Owner said he was a loving, wonderful dog. Maybe so from his standpoint, but doesn't change the fact that his loving, wonderful dog chased and bit me. My concern is with the neighborhood kids just riding their bikes down the street. Just fence your yard, or tie the dog. Don't continue to let your dog out loose and put the neighborhood kids at risk. I don't think that's too much to ask. Besides, there is a leash law, you know!

my $0.02...
any dog that is easily excitable with a lock jaw and tendency to go for the throat... NOPE!
parents that have those types of dogs around their kids are asking for trouble. yes other dogs can nip or bite, but they don't lock down and have to be pried off.
i have heard and read stories of family pits that snapped and killed the child.
i will never have a pit or any other lock-jawed dog or the likes (rots, dobermans, etc...) around my children.
i have friends that have pits but my kids will not go to their house. sorry. thats my feeling and my opinion. like it or lump it.

I have owned three pit bulls (I have one right now) and it is an absolute crime to broadly label all pit bull type dogs as vicious. It is also a crime to allow irresponsible people to own any powerful, large-breed dog (think Rottweilers, Dobermans, Bulldogs, etc) if they do not invest the time, money, and effort to properly train and socialize these dogs. Irresponsible people who own large, powerful dogs and don't go through the proper training programs are the ones to blame for the negative press that pits get. I would fully support a licensing program that legally requires owners to properly train and socialize their dogs. It takes a lot to properly train and socialize your dog and includes classes, personal trainers, and most importantly, play time with other dogs. Let's focus on the childish, irresponsible people that get these dogs for status or appearance reasons - and not the poor dogs that are stuck with these broken families through no fault of their own. BSL punishes responsible owners and dogs that have done nothing wrong. It does absolutely nothing to punish irresponsible owners and dogs that are actually vicious or have attacked before. BSL is a terrible way to approach the issue of people being irresponsible with their dogs and quite frankly should be unconstitutional.

You know what? If the city passes BSL then I will get a group together to lobby against aggressive looking teenagers. We can call it ATL - Aggressive Teen Legislation and if a teen meets the criteria (based on how they dress or their tatoos) then off to the shelter they go.

I was attacked by a german Shepherd when I was 8. I had 3 plastic surgeries to fix my face so I should feel that all German shepherds should be banned? NO! It was the owner's fault for not properly socializing the dog and/or not keeping in a fence.

I agree as I have a neighbor that has a Pit Bull and it seems to have a great personality but the owner allows the dog to roam free daily to do as he wants. He "The Dog" leaves trails of defacation all around and loves to dig up my vegetable garden. I calmly approached the owner and he replied I have no right to tell him how to take care of his dog, he then attacked me and broke my jaw. Police refused to arrest him saying it was just my word agaist his. They checked for criminal records on him and found criminal assault charges and convictions on him and also outstanding warrants. He was taken into custody and the officers dissallowed me to have any charges against him for my injuries. I am 72 years old and his age is 31, taller than me and much more muscular. I only was able to get away from him after he jumped on top of me because I had a stun gun and was able to stun him once to make him get off me after which I ran to my apartment and locked the door, Called the police. Not a very caring police force if you ask me nor any sense of right. Douglasville georgia.

Pit Bull dogs "ARE" ticking time bombs. They are quite friendly when in company of their owners but can be vicious if near someone they do not feel right about and will attack viciously. That is the main reason the State of Florida has banned the ownership of "Any" breed with pit bull characteristics. The "Whole" state and fines of several thousands of dollars are levied on violators. I think Georgia should adopt the same laws.

I have learned the hard way that if you speak out against the breed you will be bullied, harassed and stalked by owners of the pits. They foam at the mouth just as the dogs do. Just be careful when and where you say you dislike this breed - the owner and his crew of the local pit bull group will harass you to no end.

When my neighbor pits attacked my dog they came to his rescue, they posted false stories about me on their website, when the judge found the neighbor guilty the group took their money (that is donated to them) and built him a new fence, they cut down my scrubs and left the mess on my side of the fence. They hired him a lawyer after he had already been found guilty - so if you donate to this group I just thought I would let you know where your money goes to. My neighbor appreciates you building him a new fence!

The terrier breed is very tenacious , so are it's owners. You being unprovoked and without merit yelled at someone who owns a pitbull rescue that you hate PitBulls.
So there was a response to that action. Your fluffy stuck his head under the fence and into the yard of PitBulls , they responded. You were but a simple pawn in the new directors quest to prove power.

I never raised my voice I was too busy crying talking about how my dog had suffered. By the way those two Pit Bulls went after a Animal Control officer the same way that they pulled my dog through the fence, by sticking their heads under the fence and trying to grab them.(Yes there are pictures) This was not the first time these two pits killed something...they killed a neighbors dog too. I am not going to go over the details again, he was found guilty and that's all that needs to be known. I just think that if someone donates to this group that they should know that their money is going towards someone that they want "revenge" on because I had my own opinion against pit bulls...which is my right. This group has bullied me, followed me to take pictures, and harassed me to the point I have had police officers suggest I get an order of protection against them. This group even harassed a woman who is not me thinking it was me.

and the fact they posted a story on their website that I was suing for an amount of $2000 even though my vet bills were only $200 show what kind of character this group has.

I had never shared with anyone the amount of my bills until I was asked in the law suit that Douglas County brought up against this man. I shared these bills last month for the first time!

I must say my thoughts were this would affect the section 8 housing community as well as the trailor parks. I have yet to ever have anyone close to me (family or friends) that had a pit for a pet. Maybe it's just the people I hang with though......
I don't know about trailor parks but I didn't think you could have pets in section 8 housing.

I'm not really a friend to pit bulls (dogs); it is the owners fault when they hurt either a person or another animal. My brother had 2 I think one was named Sugar and the other Vanilla. Dumb names' but they were the sweetest dogs. My brother didn't teach them to fight. Aren't all animals naturally fighters?? He eventually sold them to a family who had a bigger space for them.
