If you look up what the friendliest breed and most family oriented breed is, you will find the Golden Retriever #1, in second place is the pit-bull! Followed by the lab. So that tells you alone how amazing of animals they are. And statistically golden retrievers have a higher bite rate then pit-bulls. You can not punish a breed because there bite just happens to be stronger. I work in a veterinary clinic and I can tell you that its the pit-bulls I have to worry about, its the poodles, and chihuahuas. I am a firm believer that it is not bad pets, its bad pet owners. If you spent the afternoon with a pit-bull, you would have a whole different opinion of them. You might even be surprised to know that pit-bulls are in the top 10 breeds to use to search and rescue and service animals.

When dogs of this breed attack they inflict more damage than any other breed. Their jaws have enormous power. I have not heard many reports of golden retrievers, poodles or chihuahuas killing human victims. This breed is a status symbol for people who want to either assert fear on others or are fearful themselves of people. The dog is a weapon and so it should be treated as one. Special training should be required of dog and owner. If you own one don't let it near children or adults who are uncomfortable with it or near it. It should be restrained at all times. Too many have died in my area from "cute" dogs of this breed that suddenly turn on owners or others.

Sadly, Pit Bull owners need to be licensed. The dog itself, like a gun is NOT the problem. The problem lies among the vast majority of owners themselves who either lack discipline, or are incapable of it all together. They are the ones who give up alpha and permit these dogs to dominate the family and become aggressive. And they are the ones who should be quarantined. Pit Bulls were born and bred exclusively for the cruel and violent underground sport of dog fighting. These dogs were born and bred to fight until death but like any other dog breed, if they are trained properly and socialized early on they can become a wonderful family pet. Pit Bulls are NOT the problem. Pit Bull Owners are the problem.
