Yes, the American Pit Bull Terrier is a actual breed. Just another proof to my original point that too many people assume they know about dogs. ANY breed of dog could attack and unfortunately with society's over-breeding of dogs, this trait becomes more prevelent. With anyone being able to have a dog, this increases the amount of idiot owners who don't train or socialize properly.

That aggressive behavior could come from any dog. My Doberman had to be put down after an ensepholitus disease caused brain swelling and eratic behavior. I had to use an armbar type move to take him down once to keep him from biting me. I've only been bitten once by a mad dog - a chow. That crazy dog chased me nearly a block before my bike met his head.

I also know this family very well, No the dogs did not grow up on a farm around other animals. Don't know where you got that from. This is not the first time they were running around, the owners got fined 2 weeks prior for that. It's funny how that Sunday morning the owner had on her facebook about Izzy coming home covered in blood but acting fine, then when police informed her of what the dogs have done she removed her comments. Hmm and not to long ago she was arguing on another facebook page about her dog snapping at a child. Hmm innocent dogs, think not!! Get a grip on reality, the dogs were inside the blood covered barn.... Yep another dog killed them....are you serious?!?!
