The photograph is not MY child, but it is the child of a former pit-bull owner.

The owner bought the pit bull pup while his wife was pregnant. The pup and child were raised together.

According to neighbors and family, the pup showed NO SIGNS of aggression and was just a loving playful dog.

The dog simply "snapped" one day.

While mother and father and son were watching tv in the family room, the dog sleeping on the couch woke up, barked wildly twice, grabbed the son by the face and whipped him around for awhile.

The father had to beat the dog to death with a golf club to free his son.

The quote is the fathers statement after killing his own pit-bull.

Pit bulls ARE time bombs.

Some people complain that I post this information here.

Some people state that the pit's are illegal here, so it is all non-information.

Pit's ARE here. There are approximately 80 pit's inside the city of Junction City, Kansas.

That is one pit for every 24 people.

I really don't care for those odds.

Our city keeps glancing over the statistics and talking about passing a "vicious dog ordinance".

That means that someone has to get ATTACKED before the dogs are contained.

I really don't want to have to shoot another dog.

But moreover, I really don't want to see another person attacked.

They are not legal here but people have them in this town. The law is not enforced unless something happens. We have had problems first hand with pits in this town and nothing is ever done. We were even told they were just boxers, took a picture to the vet and the vet confirmed that yes those were pits. Two of my sons idiot friends have bought pits at breeders, they live right here in JC and have papers. The rule is, you just say its a boxer mix and they wont question it. Besides, all these people posting pit pictures on the JC site are bragging that they do indeed have pits in this town.

Yeah, I was in a hurry this morning and missed the zero.

You can tell the "Brain Trust" is active when they search my post for typo's without having any REAL information to share.

http://www.dogbitelaw.com/Dog%20Attacks%20198...

Pit Bulls attack more often than ALL OTHER BREEDS COMBINED.

Pit Bulls are more likely to attack children than adults.

Pit Bulls are GENETICALLY AGGRESSIVE!

Utilization of "Pit-Bull"s As Assistance Dogs.

In a conversation recently, your name and address came up as one who trains American Pit Bull Terriers (Pit-Bulls) as assistance dogs.

Is this correct?

Could you give me some information as to what advantages and disadvantages are involved with using this breed.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

MK

"Mr. K,

I have helped a person train their own pit-bull mix as a service dog for themselves.

I would not recommend this breed to just anyone.

I believe that the person must have prior experience with the breed and know what they are getting themselves into.

Pit bulls can be very sweet, well behaved dogs, but given their genetic background, I think that a person who works with them needs to have experience and be willing to work to overcome the aggressive tendency that this breed has.

In the case I worked with the owner on, the dog(s) were able to meet the needs of the person and were in training as assistance dogs.

Unfortunately, both dogs ended up running away and not being able to be found.

I hope this helps with what you need.

R"

WOW. ISN'T THAT SOMETHING?

"...given their genetic background, I think that a person who works with them needs to have experience and be willing to work to overcome the aggressive tendency that this breed has."

AGAIN:

"...the aggressive tendency that this breed has."

That's straight dope from THE PROFESSIONALS!

You keep on trusting and believing that you can train out their aggressive tendencies...

...I'LL HOLD ON TO THE .38.

I was bitten in the neck when I was 11 years old by a Brittany Spaniel running loose. I say a dog is only as good as its owner. Pit Bull dogs are illegal to bring into this city. There are some that were "grandfathered" in because the ordinance could not be retroactive. These owners have registered their dogs with the city and have to meet certain requirements to continue to own these dogs. The ones that aren't registered are the result of irresponible people on both sides, owners and law enforcement. I have been around nearly all kinds of dogs and with proper ownership any dog can be safe if handled by a responsible person. Scared people scare dogs. If someone comes around you must be responsible and control your animal no matter what breed. We have had dog attacks in this town and pit bull attacks too. The person that owned the dog that got Hap Haslett did'nt even get fined or have the dog taken away. Things have changed for the better and animal control around here is good. As far as chicken shit Damn is concerned he can hold on to his gun and hide in his house because I think he is just plain scared of dogs.

So really, what you are saying, just prior to your final insult is:

There are pit-bulls in JC.

Most are purchased with a wink and called by another name.

Law enforcement does little or nothing about them.

People continue to bring them into the city illegally.

Without regard to the VOLUMINOUS evidence to the contrary and statements by recognized authorities, veterinarians, trainers and statisticians YOU believe it is the OWNER and not the BREED.

As for my being "scared of dogs"? Hardly. I own a German Shepard. He too is a retired officer.

My wife owns a Blond Labrador Retriever.

5 doors down the street live 2 Pit Bulls. I have introduced myself to their owners.

My daughter, son in law and my 2 of my grand children ages 3 and 6 live 3 houses down from an rowdy pit bull.

He lives behind a chain-link fence and lunges, snaps and chews the fence.

I have met the owner. He is an ignorant, young man that punches and hits his dog to quiet him down. He calls the dog a Pit Bull to EVERYONE other than the law enforcement officers.

THAT is what I have found in MY law enforcement career to be most typical of the "Pit Bull Owner".

Me, my wife, my son-in-law and my daughter are all trained professionally to handle firearms.

It's not FEAR, Matt. It's Pest Control.

Call me what you want, makes no difference and shows your ignorance.

I have 5 dogs all big dogs different breeds, mutts mostly. I have seen the damage a pit can do first hand when it attacked my sister. The difference in a pit attack and other breeds with the exception of Rotts..Is pits attack to kill, they do not just bite, they keep on ripping because they are bred to kill, research the animal. Research how many people have died at the hands of this beast...how many children have died, innocent children that had no control over the kind of dog their parents picked out...Pits are responsible for 65% of all humans dying from dog attacks, the second highest is Rotts and then there are small percentages of other dog killing. There is no denying what this animal is capable...Check out Peta's stance on this dog and they believe in saving all animals from us humans.

I am not a supporter of PETA but was suprised to read this information...

Controlling an animal as deadly as a weapon

-- Ingrid Newkirk

Most people have no idea that at many animal shelters across the country, any pit bull that comes through the front door doesn't go out the back door alive. From California to New York, many shelters have enacted policies requiring the automatic destruction of the huge and ever-growing number of "pits" they encounter. This news shocks and outrages the compassionate dog-lover.

Here's another shocker: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the very organization that is trying to get you to denounce the killing of chickens for the table, foxes for fur or frogs for dissection, supports the shelters' pit-bull policy, albeit with reluctance. We further encourage a ban on breeding pit bulls.

The pit bull's ancestor, the Staffordshire terrier, is a human concoction, bred in my native England, I'm ashamed to say, as a weapon. These dogs were designed specifically to fight other animals and kill them, for sport. Hence the barrel chest, the thick hammer-like head, the strong jaws, the perseverance and the stamina. Pits can take down a bull weighing in at over a thousand pounds, so a human being a tenth of that weight can easily be seriously hurt or killed.

Pit bulls are perhaps the most abused dogs on the planet. These days, they are kept for protection by almost every drug dealer and pimp in every major city and beyond. You can drive into any depressed area and see them being used as cheap burglar alarms, wearing heavy logging chains around their necks (they easily break regular collars and harnesses), attached to a stake or metal drum or rundown doghouse without a floor and with holes in the roof. Bored juveniles sic them on cats, neighbors' small dogs and even children.
In the PETA office, we have a file drawer chock-full of accounts of attacks in which these ill-treated dogs with names like "Murder" and "Homicide" have torn the faces and fingers off infants and even police officers trying to serve warrants. Before I co-founded PETA, I served as the chief of animal-disease control and director of the animal shelter in the District of Columbia for many years. Over and over again, I waded into ugly situations and pulled pit bulls from people who beat and starved them, or chained them to metal drums as "guard" dogs, or trained them to attack people and other animals. It is this abuse, and the tragedy that comes from it, that motivates me.

Those who argue against a breeding ban and the shelter euthanasia policy for pit bulls are naive, as shown by the horrifying death of Nicholas Faibish, the San Francisco 12-year-old who was mauled by his family's pit bulls.

Tales like this abound. I have scars on my leg and arm from my own encounter with a pit. Many are loving and will kiss on sight, but many are unpredictable. An unpredictable Chihuahua is one thing, an unpredictable pit another.

People who genuinely care about dogs won't be affected by a ban on pit- bull breeding. They can go to the shelter and save one of the countless other breeds and lovable mutts sitting on death row. We can only stop killing pits if we stop creating new ones. Legislators, please take note.

The DEADLIEST DOGS

Merritt Clifton, editor of Animal People, has conducted an unusually detailed study of dog bites from 1982 to the present.(Clifton, Dog attack deaths and maimings, U.S. & Canada, September 1982 to November 13, 2006;)

http://www.dogbitelaw.com/Dog%20Attacks%20198...

The Clifton study show the number of serious canine-inflicted injuries by breed. The author's observations about the breeds and generally how to deal with the dangerous dog problem are enlightening.

According to the Clifton study, pit bulls, Rottweilers, Presa Canarios and their mixes are responsible for 74% of attacks that were included in the study, 68% of the attacks upon children, 82% of the attacks upon adults, 65% of the deaths, and 68% of the maimings.

In more than two-thirds of the cases included in the study, the life-threatening or fatal attack was apparently the first known dangerous behavior by the animal in question. Clifton states:

"If almost any other dog has a bad moment, someone may get bitten, but will not be maimed for life or killed, and the actuarial risk is accordingly reasonable.

If a pit bull terrier or a Rottweiler has a bad moment, often someone is maimed or killed--and that has now created off-the-chart actuarial risk, for which the dogs as well as their victims are paying the price."

Clifton's opinions are as interesting as his statistics. For example, he says,

"Pit bulls and Rottweilers are accordingly dogs who not only must be handled with special precautions, but also must be regulated with special requirements appropriate to the risk they may pose to the public and other animals, if they are to be kept at all."

Breed Bans are MORE effective than Vicious Dog Ordinances.

Breed Bans only work if the population DEMANDS that Law Enforcement ACTS upon the illegal breeds.

Vicious Dog Ordinances ONLY WORK AFTER SOMEONE IS HURT, MAIMED OR DEAD!

To Matt in Berryton KS, WOW...I can't believe you remember or even knew about the attack on Hap Haslett. You must have even knew him well if you are calling him Hap. Thank you for bringing up this point. Hap Haslett was my grandfather and you are correct, the dog owners (the delay family) walked away scott free. Without a fine or anything. Keep in mind, this same dog attacked the delay's son richard's girlfriend's child. Charges were never pressed in that case either.

yes pit bull are illegal in geary county, but are still adoptable to persons outside the county. I am wiling to bet that what you call pit bulls at the shelter are probably not pure pit bulls, so are legal
