<quoted text> cj and galiath got what they deserved. should have been given on the spot by a deputys shotgun. the owner should get what he deserves for letting them run loose and do it-3-5yrs in jail and 10,000.00fine . Instead of finding something to blame for it happening you would probably be thinkin more rational and looking at your pits as a liability that requires responsability, from you as the owner
Well, maybe the deputy's should just put a shotgun to you then??? I understand everyone's frustration however, you didn't know these dogs either. I can't expect someone w/ignorance to understand the love & compassion CJ & Galiath had. Because of these 2 specific Pitt's is why I own a Pitt now. We also have a jack russell/chiuaua mix & if I wanted to I could have raised her to be a killer dog but she's not but does have more attitude than our Pitt. So as I said before, alot of how ANY breed turns out is due to the owner, mean breed or not!

Yeah, fool they are known to suddenly attack the owners or family, for no reason out of the clear blue. Hope when it does, it turns on you and not an innocent child or baby.
I have heard things like that, about Pitt's turning on the owner's for no reason too BUT that also can happen w/ANY BREED. If you also look into the history of the ones that have turned on thier owners you usually will also find that somewhere down the line the Owner did mistreat that animal. My Pitt is full of NOTHING BUT LOVE & no matter what all you others think, he is the best mannered dog around & LOVES HIS FAMILY. He is more than a dog, he is our family.

well maybe but attacks aren't as vicious as the pit. They aim to kill. Hope it doesn't happen to u then you'll say those ppl were right.

People that own pitbull do it so you will think they are a badass. There is no other reason to own one. Yes any dog can turn bad but it is facts that pit are more likely to do it than any other breed. Most the people I know how own pits are trailer trash that wants a cheap way to say I am a bad ass. Most these people donít care about their health or the health of their kids. They are druggies and alcoholics that live off welfare. What I cannot understand is the upstanding hard working people that own them. Anyone who can read should know there are dangerous. Is it really worth taking the chance of getting some kid mauled because you like the looks of this breed? You might as well let your kid play with a loaded gun. They might not pull the trigger and besides there are other dangerous things they could be playing with.

People can say what they want, but you can't deny pits kill way more people than any other dog. That alone should keep any parent from getting one.

I didn't get a pit cause I wanted to be badass....... I honestly love them..... I'm a woman, I don't need it for protection...... I just love them...... An I have kids..... And my kids love them and my dog loves them........ If my dog hears a baby crying on tv,it gets very distressed and tries to find it....

why because you're an idiot and don't know how to treat a dog? So if you can't be a responsible dog owner no one else can? Please....... I'm so sick of people who have never been exposed to these dogs acting like they are the worst animal out there..... Honestly just meet someone that has a good one and I promise you will fall in love....... It really will change your mind..... When I was younger I was scared of them too, because of everything I heard....... Then I was exposed to them. My opinion changed

You may have a pit that isn't a bad dog. Good for you. But if statistics proved that my lab was more likely to kill someone than other breeds, I definitely would have chose a different dog. I wouldn't have put my selfish "love for the breed" in front of my children's safety. People can say what they want about pits. Statistics don't lie. They were responsible for 71% of fatal attacks last year. How many pit attacks start with "He was such a loving dog"? When pits do attack, they try to maim and kill. So if for some awful reason your pit does turn, what do you think the aftermath is going to be for your family?

All pits should be thrown into a wood chipper and the breed banned... forever. Pit owners are just asking for trouble... there is no reason to own a pit.

Why in hell would I fall in love with a pit bull... that's just dumb. You are the idiot!!!

If you have kids they should be taken away from you because you're a narrow minded tunnel visioned idiot.
