Come here and pet my puppy on the top of his head as if you know him or have any basic clue about dog behavior. We'll show you how we roll in California.
You're so Ghetto. "We'll show you how we roll in California". Sorry, but no one in Tennessee wants to see how you roll, stay in California Ghetto trash.

Lemme guess, 600 bucks in your welfare world performed non-ghetto life saving surgery on two mammals?

You can't buy a box of bandaids in California for 600 bucks, not and get enough change back for a cold drink. Not because it costs that much, but, because we won't let you, and mostly just you.

It's personal.

Come back when you have something substantive and on topic to add aside from your childish name calling crap unless your alleged non-ghettofabulous neanderthal self would rather me respond with true stories about your momma and how pimpilicioustastic I am.

You people are idiots and you obviously know nothing. I have a pit bull and he's the sweetest dog in the world. He wouldn't hurt a fly. He's the most loving dog I've ever owned. Pit Bulls aren't mean animal.. The owners are the ones who train them to be that way. Hell anyone can train ANY dog to be mean, no matter what breed. So I don't know why you're singling out the pit bulls. All dogs have teeth. Being judgmental of an animal is no different than racism. You might as well be judging a human being.

One big difference between pitbulls and other dogs is, if the pitbull attacks you it wont just bite you and be done with it.. Its going to lock on and rip you to pieces and possible kill you.. Keep your pitbull and move to Nashville.

what I read here they only do 150 bucks damage per dog and per victim.... that's a bargain compared to what your friendly shepard, collie, dalmation, chow or many others will do alone

two pits vs a dog owner and his dog equals 600 bucks in med bills

plenty of time for rescue people to round up ball bats and whoopum off

So you mean to tell me Pit Bulls are the only dogs that have ever physically harmed someone? WRONG. I have a friend that was bitten by a Rotwhiler and it ripped her lip open. A dog is dog. Some bite, some don't. Whether it be a pit bull, chow, Rotwhiler, German Shepard. They CAN all bite. My Pit bull is a big ole baby. We've raised him well, taken good care of him, and he plays well with other dogs. There's not a mean bone in his body. Usually the only reason a pit bull or ANY other dog is aggressive is if they're trained that way by their owner.

So now its the pitbulls that are bringing Hendersonville down, take a look around why do you think everyone is pushing toward Gallatin (btw is worse)Hendersonville is slowly but surely becoming Rivergate. But I guess its easier for racist to ban dogs since its illegal to ban "the people" we know "Carl" and "TRR" are talking about. Move to Belle Meade.

Give me half the nation and you the other half.

You kill off all of any non-humans that suit you.

I'll sterilize people with IQ's below a certain number and kill off others with patently undesirable bad breeding.

George, guess in which line you'd be if you stepped foot in our half?

In three years we'll own you and all of yours, lock, stock and barrel.

Of course you and most are completely ignorant to the fact that this has already happened to you all at the hands of the less than upper 3%.

Now carry own with your sideshow distraction convinced your concern isn't really about people who cannot or will not train and/or control their mammals.

First, a pit bull will not as you say "lock on", if you are going to make a statment, please do your research first. Any large dog can attack and possibly kill a person. It is all in how a dog is raised and taken care of.

Second, I will keep my pit bull and my home in Hendersonville. If you don't like that there are pit bull owners in Hendersonville why don't you move to Nashville!!

Ban Pit Bulls....Are you crazy. I have read every comment on this subject, Carl, Doug, TRR...you have no clue whatsoever.

When I lived in Savannah Ga, I purchased my pit from the ghetto, actually paid more then what the so called family wanted due to the fact they were having puppies to fight in Florida. Now I live in H'ville and she is doing fine with 4 other dogs we have which are much bigger then her.

The dog / breed is not the problem - its the owners. Really Carl, Doug, TRR - get a grip on banning.

My pup is almost 8 yrs old and is the sweetest pit I know. Never attacked anyone nor even thought about it..Its how they are raised. End of subject.

Carl, Doug & TRR should not jump on BAN ban wagon due to others pushing the issue...if thats the case, We should ban people on here for making stupid comments.

Just my thoughts...

Peace Out...

Carl,

Your link is from an individual who is fighting breed specific legislation (BSL). They aren't promoting it. And, I find it very ignorant on your part to start this thread. Have you researched dog bite statistics?

According to the American Humane Society - At least 25 different breeds of dogs have been involved in the 238 dog-bite-related fatalities in the U.S.

In one theory, pit bulls began during antiquity as the so-called Molossus, a now-extinct breed that was used by the Greeks as shepherds and guard dogs. In times of war, they marched off to battle with their humans. Eventually, so the theory goes, the Molossus made it to early Britain, where it became known as the Mastiff. In the first century CE, Rome discovered the breed after defeating the Britons, and the dogs spread all over the empire. For the next four hundred years, they were used as war dogs, and intermixed with various local breeds all over the European continent, becoming the forerunners of the modern pit bull.

Far from being considered a killing machine on legs, pit bulls seem to be an American favorite in the early half of the century—indeed, during World War I, the country itself is personified as a pit bull on army recruitment posters, and several pit bulls go on to become famous in the American military. Referring to an athlete as a pit bull is a very common sports metaphor through the 1930s, and it is meant as the highest compliment. There is also a famous racehorse in the late 1930s named pit bull, as well as a number of pit bull stars of early motion pictures. Frequently, pit bulls are associated with children, as in the Our Gang comedies, as well as with Buster Brown, both in short films and as the corporate mascot for a shoe company. The famous RCA Victor image of a dog and a gramophone also featured a pit bull terrier.

Breed-specific legislation (BSL)
•In response to these statistics, many communities have enacted breed-specific legislation (BSL) that prohibits ownership of certain breeds, such as pit bulls, Rottweilers and others.
•Any breed of dog can bite, and research suggests BSL does little to protect the community from dog-bite incidents.
•In fact, BSL can often have unintended consequences -- such as black-market interest and indiscriminant breeding practices -- resulting in subsequent breed overpopulation that leads to increases in the number of homeless, stray and euthanized dogs.
•Enforcement of BSL has been shown to be very costly and extremely difficult to enforce. One county in Maryland spent more than $560,000 maintaining pit bulls (not including payroll, cross-agency costs and utilities), while fees generated only $35,000.
•Responsible breeding and ownership, public education and enforcement of existing laws are the most effective ways of reducing dog bites.
•American Humane supports local legislation to protect communities from dangerous animals, but does not advocate laws that target specific breeds of dogs.

So, please - do your homework. Research what you're posting.

Pit bulls can be and are great dogs. They can be dangerous in the wrong hands. But, so can a Labrador Retriever. Did you know that the Lab was first on a list of most common dog bites causing injury or fatality??

What idiot whould even chance having a pitbull around children ?? These defenders of the Pitbull are just blinded by their love for animals, you try and give us that bs about "its the owners". WRONG ! Any dog can attck at any given time, the problem with the larger more powerful dogs like the Pits and Rottweiler are the amount of damage they can cause. In an 8-year period from 2005 to 2012, pit bulls killed 151 Americans and accounted for 60% of the total recorded deaths (251). http://www.dogsbite.org/dangerous-dogs.php

38 U.S. fatal dog attacks occurred in 2012. Despite being regulated in Military Housing areas and over 600 U.S. cities,3 pit bulls contributed to 61%(23) of these deaths. Pit bulls make up less than 5% of the total U.S. dog population.
Together, pit bulls (23) and rottweilers (3), the second most lethal dog breed, accounted for 68% of all fatal attacks in 2012. In the 8-year period from 2005 to 2012, this combination accounted for 73%(183) of the total recorded deaths (251).
The breakdown between pit bulls and rottweilers is substantial over this 8-year period. From 2005 to 2012, pit bulls killed 151 Americans, about one citizen every 19 days, versus rottweilers, which killed 32, about one citizen every 91 days.
Annual data from 2012 shows that 50%(19) of the victims were adults, 21-years and older, and the other half were children, ages 8-years and younger. Of the total children killed by dogs in 2012, 79%(15) were ages 2-years and younger.
Annual data also shows that males were more often victims, 61%(23), than females. The majority of male victims, 61%(14), were ages 8-years and younger. Of the total female victims, only 33%(5) fell into this same age group.
In 2012, roughly one-third, 32%(12), of all dog bite fatality victims were either visiting or living temporarily with the dog's owner when the fatal attack occurred. Children 8-years and younger accounted for 75%(9) of these deaths.
34%(13) of all fatalities in 2012 involved more than one dog; 13%(5) involved breeding on the dog owner's property either actively or in the recent past, and 5%(2) involved tethered dogs, down from 6% in 2011, 9% in 2010 and 19% in 2009.
In 2012, dogs referred to as a "rescue" accounted for at least 13%(5) attacks that resulted in death. Children suffered the brunt of these attacks with 3 deaths. The adults afflicted, 2 adult females, were killed by their own pack of "rescued" dogs.5
Dog ownership information for 2012 shows that family dogs comprised 58%(22) of all fatal occurrences; 82%(31) of all incidents occurred on the dog owner's property and 18%(7) resulted in criminal charges, down from 29% in 2011.6
California and North Carolina led fatalities in 2012, each with 4 deaths. 75% of the California deaths occurred in San Diego County. Pit bull-type dogs accounted for 88%(7) of the 8 deaths. New Mexico, Ohio and Texas followed, each with 3 deaths.

If it’s true that our species is alone in the universe, then I’d have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
