Spay and nuetering does not help dogs that have agression problems the goes for any dog not just the pit bull breed... good breeding and responsable owners are what this breed needs ....i owned a show kennel and took unwanted and abused dogs off the streets.. i believe if a dog is aggressive it should NOT be given away to fall into the hands of wrong unresponsable owners the dog shoukd be humanily put to sleep....people have made this breed aggressive by mixing these dogs with other breeds and by not teaching these dogs obiedance....these dogs are loyal and good family dogs but bred the wrong way or taught the wrong way could spell disaster.... i have been with this breed 29 years and would never own another breed......please stop unwanted breeding and help the responsable pit bull owners !!!

I share Teri's sentiments about the importance of caring for pit bulls in a responsible manner-- many of these dogs do become excellent family pets under the guidance of concerned and attentive people. But animal behaviorists have identified several different types of canine aggression-- some can be corrected, some are not easily treated. Possibly a spay and neuter ordinance might contribute to dogs remaining on their own premises more readily and reduce pet roaming problems, so to that extent the proposed legislation might reduce some instances of canine aggression.

Practically without exception, every attack we have seen in the news, the owners say they have never seen any aggressive behavior, have them around their kids, are family dogs, yadda, yadda. I can't address the breeding, but 80% of the pits who end up in shelters are not fixed. Maybe we should address the breeding of the owners?
I still wouldn't want them around my kids.

I think we should go after the owners of these dogs for raising violent dogs and not securing them from getting out to injure or kill somebody after all its there training or there lack of training that makes these dogs violent I've owned and still owned several pit bulls that i can walk anywhere with out a leash and have never bitten anything dont own one if you don't have the time to spend with them

I like a few of you, just do not see how spaying and neutering a aggressive dog, is going to stop them from attacking. The only thing it does, stop them from having more pups.

There is always going to be people who cross breed pit bulls. Some trying to improve the breed , some continue to destroy the breed.

Going after the owners of pitbulls? Sounds like a nice fairy tale. What do u suppose should happen? Go door to door and do welfare checks on pitbulls lol? Who would even do that? Who would pay for it? Even if the pitbull was vicious, how would it be proven it was the owner's fault?
Another person mauled to death by a pitbull last week in Stockton. This dog probably was raised to be vicious, and more than likely the owner's fault. I'm an animal lover, but these animals are too dangerous to be among us. If they can be trained to be this deadly, then the only feasible solution is to get rid of them. All this non-sense about owner's being responsible will NEVER happen. Anyone else want to offer up a REAL solution? Am I the only one on this thread not living in fairy tale town?
