The ban on pitbulls in city limits is ridiculous. There are actual humans that shouldn't be allowed withing city limits. That is what they should be working on. lol

Even if you aren't from this area any information in alternatives to pitbull laws would be welcomed. Always best to have strength in numbers! I don't technically live in the city limits but would love to be able to walk in downtown with a pit and not have to answer for the breed of my choosing.

I wouldn't sign it! Also i I bet I could double the signatures you get for allowing them to not allow them?
There is a reason these vicious dogs are banned from 78% off all municipalities in this country. Why they are a fighting dog and no matter how well trained they are it takes 1 thing to set them off and then instincts take over? Don't believe me? Google pit bull attack and see what happens and hey the proof is in the pudding and if you don't believe that google wiener dog attack. Good Day!

I don't know why they haven't figured that out yet. I agree that idiots shouldn't have these dogs and some people, not any dogs, pets or children.

But then again there is a plethora of other issues that appear simple as all heck but they won't flipping do it. With all we've done, I don't know why we can still all behave so stupid, do stupid things.

All these labeled breeds are just like every other. It is the dog and it is the owner. Maybe this is an issue created to take the focus off more important things. Why else would some asshole make this an obstacle. idk

I agree. One attack on a child is one to many

Maybe you should google too. Pit bulls were not originally Breed to be fighters. They were breed to be nanny dogs ( try googling that one!) the only reason they are used for harm is because low life thugs abuse the breeds want to please. I have been around alot of breeds ( pits, Rottweilers, dobermans, chihuahuas, labs, min pins, poodles,), but out of those I have ever only been bit by min pins. you going to band those too

Maybe you should check the facts of the case. A kid climbed through a window to steel out of a house and her mother behind her helping her get through the window. Who would you ban the dumb mother or the dog defending his 4 walls. If you say the human then when your house is broken into and your chihuahua can't defend your house, don't cry to the public that you big flat screen is missing because your siding with the criminal on this one

Exactly and the difference is that when a child maybe gets attacked by a wiener dog which is doubtful at best it gets a few scars. Now when the same child gets attached by a pit bull which is highly likely it could cause death!
But some people are just to damn ignorant to figure this out!

Are you going to ban all larger dogs then?

Are you also one that thinks schools still should be segregated too?

Worker man? Seems to me your the ignorant one here buddy. You can train any breed of dog to be viscous. Thats a fact not internet propaganda. I bet your one of those people that want to ban firearms too huh? Retard! You ever own a pit? Obviously not.

Chris Vanmeter was abusive tou his pit It practatly tore a 13 yr old girls arm off. Then he denied owning it. do you think Anyone would want to take chances with their kids. what Im saying is. you might be a good owner. but the person ontheother block might not be. besides pit bulls are a inbred dog and their brain does not stop growing. Their brain gets pressure on it when its pressed against the crainium. "medulla oblingata" the part of the brain that causes violence anger and rage it the part that gets pressure on it. not all pits have this problem. even a gental dog can snap and kill the owner or a kid. Happy Thanksgiving.

Pits Dobes, Rotts, along a few other breads are known to be very territorial and intelligent. They are also known for turning on their owners if they think they are getting screwed over. God help the person not in their "pack" that screws them over, messes with their "pack" or pisses on their territory.

I love Dobermans, I've had several. I've had 1 turn on me. I've had 2 that if you messed with someone in their "pack" you had a problem - including just raising your voice. When I was a teenager I had a Dobe. He was taught to be a very gentle dog. The neighborhood kids all played with him. My mom was sick and on oxygen. If he was in the car with my mom and a stranger walked by, it was all teeth and nails on the glass. If anyone raised their voice to me, even my sister, he would put himself between them and me, growling with his teeth bared. He once went through the front screen door after someone yelling at my sister. He had his "pack" and his own thoughts about how to protect it and what the pecking order was - he would keep the "pack" in the order he believed it should be in. Couldn't break him of it.

I've had friends with a Pits. One of my friends that had a Pit, he was the original owner and he had a family.It never bothered me. It was a nice dog. Trained to be nice and friendly. Wanted to give everybody it's paw. The owners were good people. One night we are playing cards and their daughter had her best friend over staying the night. The girls got into a tickle match, as kids do - All I can say is I am glad the dog got a hold of the back of her neck and not the front. The girl had to be life flighted. The dog got put down. Two families got their lives thrown in shambles. Pat was devastated over what his dog did to that little girl. He was possibly more devastated by what his daughter went through watching what was happening to her best friend. After the judgement he lost his house over what the home owner insurance wouldn't pay. None of the lives of the people in that house that evening will ever be the same. You can't see something like that without it affecting you.

Some breads of dogs are not well suited for families and/or living in the city. They are banned from many cities for a reason.
