Like Shorty on Animal Planet says. "Pitbulls are good dogs,you just got bad owners" You got people who want to train a pit to fight & bite that is not right. Pitbulls are loveable dogs they should not be baned cause a select few people want train them to fight. I with the people who know how to take care of a dog, not to train it to be a killer but a friendly pet that everyone can enjoy.

i recall a klan boys from cottage hills were raising pit bulls for dog fights and also to attack law enforcement agents specifically...when all of the I's were dotted and the T's were crossed..the charges were extreme and stuck...

the same needs to happen to anyone that has a dog of any breed that intentionally keeps and maintains a vicious and uncontrollable animal...especially this whack job..
My dog is vicious you should come meet him!

I know the owner of the dog that was shot down, and he def does not condone pit bull fighting. He had rescued that dog a few years ago. Personally having met the dog, it wasn't mean. I'm not the biggest fan of pit bulls because without any warning even the nicest dog can turn, and pits are extremely powerful animals. Though its not their fault, its in all animals nature. Shit happens, deal with it and move on.

Just wear some old clothes. If my pit turns on you because any dog could, I wouldn't want any of your good clothes to get bloody.

what a load of hooey! an adoption place will not adopt a dog if they show such aggression..so either the dog was not adopted or the idiot trained the dog to be mean...or you are making this up and merely trolling..either way..you are a moronic liar..

Pits are not a bad breed, they are an aggressive breed by breeding. Regardless of how you raise them you can't change genetics. That being said you can alter their behavior if you CONSTANTLY work on it and ALWAYS keep your animal under control. They can be great dogs but not everyone should have one or any dog for that matter.

but any dog just like half of this forsaken village...with inbreeding and living in a hostile environment can create a vicious being...

i love it when the "typicals" come on and play tough...this is why folks like that get their noses bent...they are like neanderthals..they do not have the intelligence to communicate their feelings effectively using words...so when intelligence makes them feel challenged...they respond with thuggish BS...
