2 doors of the cages listed Staffordshire Bull Terrier (Pit Bull)

2 of the cages listed as American Staffordhire Terrier (Pit Bull)

Go see for yourself, you can get a pit cheap there.

Question: Is the animal shelter within the city or is that stretch considered county?

yes, and the animal control lists almost all dogs as pit bulls, even if they arent. i had my registered american bull dog lpicked up last year amd they had him listed as a pit bull, even though he is perfectly legal. But that dosent bother me though, because they dont destroy the pit bulls, there is 100% adoption of the breed

How do you know there is 100% adoption?

Who is adopting them?

How long are the held?

Forever?

Is this just another one of those situations where we pass an ordinance because people don't want the damned things around them, and then the police, animal control and shelter ignore the ordinance?

all your information is based on misinformation
pit bulls were bred to not show aggression towards humans they were bred to show aggression towards other dogs. your statistics are all faulty. the united kennel club conducted temperment tests on many different breeds and pit bulls ranked extremely high showing that they have similar temperments to golden retrievers and labs (some of the more docile breeds.) Socialization is key for raising pitbulls. If you abuse your dog or don't give him any social contact he will not know to trust humans. People often forget that historically these were very popular family dogs in the 1920, and were used extensively in World War 2. Some of the most highly decorated war dogs were American Pit Bull Terriers (look up Sargent Stubby). It is also true that most of the dogs in the bite and attack pit bull studies were pit bull mixes and not pure bred American Pit bull terriers. All the media misinformation has slandered this loyal, strong, intelligent breed. Another thing to consider is the fact that people that get bit by other breeds probably don't report the bite, but when people are bit by a bully breed it is all over the news. This dog used to be a American icon now it is seen as a menace by ignorant people that have not done there research, and are getting information from non credible sources. Lets also not forget about the pro football player Michael Vick, who fought pit bulls. What most people don't know is many of Vick's abused dogs (that were tormented and bred to kill) have been rehabilitated and are now service dogs for elderly people. I love pit bulls, my pit bull is the sweetest dog in the world, and i believe breed specific legislation (and not dog specific legislation) is ignorance. It all boils down to how the dog is raised, and it is not fair that responsible pit bull owners with great dogs should be punished for irresponsible owners. I say these things should be dealt with on a individual dog basis. Next thing you know breed specific legislation will be after rotts and german shepards, then dobermans. The owners should be held accountable for how the dog turns out not the breed. Man bites dog is no news, unless it is a pit bull then the media blows it way out of proportion. You get rid of pit bulls and people will still make dangerous dogs. So please do research from credible sources instead of media scare mongerers. And don't ban this wonderful breed.

you know the Little Rascals dog was a pit bull and that was such a ruthless killing machine. Now i am not saying pit bulls are for everyone it takes patience and dedication to properly train and socialize your Pit bull (they are high energy dogs) but for the person who truely knows how to raise them they are the most loyal, intelligent breed you can get. i wish i could send you guys a picture of my pit bull playing with 5 year old children. I took the time to properly dominate and socialize him and he is great with kids. Yes they were bred to fight dogs, but fighting dogs that would display aggression to humans were killed. That instinct was bred out of them. The moral of the story is Bad owners make bad dogs whether it is a pit bull or a poodle.

YOu can defend the breed over and over, facts are facts. If you want to play russian roulette, go for it but you should not put your neighbors or children at risk. Almost every pitbull owner says the same thing when their dog kill someone..." Its never bit anyone before, it was a great family dog" blah blah blah...The difference between a pit and a poodle is the poodle is not going to kill your neighbor when it decides to snap, a pit is!

Damn You are an Idiot! Go and take your 38 and shot yourself in the head.

A Rot killed a child in Geary County and they then ban pit bulls. You are about as bright as the City Commission.

German Shepards and Rots are high on the list of dogs that bite why not ban them as well.

you ignorant people need to look up united kennel club temperment tests and see for your self. You can make any dog a mean dog. shit the other day i almost got bit by a fucking chocolate lab at the dog park. but i guess you people in Junk town want to remain ignorant and buy into your bias media bullshit. I have never met a mean pit bull. My girl friends father who happens to be a plastic surgeon tells me all the time about terrible dog bites he has to treat from german shepards. Obviously people like you should never own a pit bull it seems you all were born with a extra chromosome. go ahead look it up Michael Vicks pits were rehabilitated as service dogs(after being beaten and starved, and hooked up to car batteries) It is incredible how a breed can come back and be so loving after so much abuse. You can ban all the dogs you like assholes will still make viscious dogs that are capable of killing. They could use mastiffs or presa canarios or mix other dogs. All i am saying is responsible owners should not be have their dogs killed and banned, because of irresponsible owners. How do you know that the lady who got attacked by a pit didn't have a pit mix. most of those dog bite numbers come from dogs that are just suspected of being pits. You guys could buy into all the bull shit you want to but i challenge you to at least look up ukc temperment test or read about Vick's Pits. Or look up some pit bull history. See how they were farm and family dogs in the early 19th century. Even when they fought other dogs they were killed if they showed aggression towards humans. Oh and buy the way any dog expert will tell you that it is not good to leave children alone with most breeds of dogs. I am sorry your dog bit your kid but maybe you should have bought a dog with papers and researched the dogs lineage temperment before buying one. My pitbull is Razors edge that line is specifically bred to not show aggression towards humans.

MYTH: All Pit Bulls are mean and vicious.
It is reported on temperament tests conducted by the American Temperament Test Society that Pit Bulls had a passing rate of 82% or better -- compared to only 77% of the general dog population.
These temperament tests consist of putting a dog through a series of unexpected situations, some involving strangers.
Any signs of unprovoked aggression or panic in these situations result in failure of the test. The achievement of Pit Bulls in this study disproves that they are inherently aggressive to people.(Please visit ATTS.org )
MYTH: A Pit Bull that shows aggression towards an animal will go for people next.
"
Pit bulls that do show aggressive behavior towards humans are not typical of the breed and should be humanely euthanized.
MYTH: If a Pit Bull was never trained to fight, it will be safe with other dogs.
Pit Bulls can live peacefully with other dogs and animals. However, the Pit Bull has historically been bred to take down large animals. Early and continual socialization can help a Pit Bull be more animal friendly. Genetics, however, play an important role in how the dog will respond to other dogs and animals.
A Pit Bull that will fight another dog if unattended is a normal Pit Bull. Even if a Pit Bull does not start the fight, it has the potential to seriously injure or kill a dog once in the fight.
The Pit Bull has been bred to not back down and withstand pain until the goal is met. This quality does not carry true in all Pit Bulls, but it is safe to assume it is a potential in any Pit Bull in order to avoid unnecessary problems.
Pit Bulls have a late maturity, and a Pit Bull that was dog friendly at 7 months old may suddenly show signs of intolerance of unfamiliar dogs around two years old. Spaying and neutering the dog may help to prevent "turning on" the genetic urge to fight another dog.
All dog fights are preventable, however. Socialize a Pit Bull slowly with new dogs, and never let them play unattended. Remove items such as toys and food bowls to avoid stress.
Pit Bulls can live happily with other pets; if not left unattended. Even the "best of friends" can fight, and the outcome may be tragic. This can be true for dogs that have been together for years. Often, after the first serious fight, relations between the dogs are never the same.
Keeping that first fight from happening is a great way to ensure peaceful relations for the long run. If there is a multiple-dog household, it is important to separate the dogs when there is no one home.
Many people use crates for short times, put dogs into separate rooms, use kennels, or have outdoor areas set up for separation that are safe and secure. Pit Bulls can get along wonderfully with animals like cats, rabbits, and ferrets, but for safety's sake, never leave them alone together.
MYTH: American Pit Bull Terriers have 1600 P.S.I. in jaw pressure
Dr. Lehr Brisbin of the University of Georgia states, "To the best of our knowledge, there are no published scientific studies that would allow any meaningful comparison to be made of the biting power of various breeds of dogs.
There are, moreover, compelling technical reasons why such data describing biting power in terms of "pounds per square inch" can never be collected in a meaningful way. All figures describing biting power in such terms can be traced to either unfounded rumor or, in some cases, to newspaper articles with no foundation in factual data."
MYTH: American Pit Bull Terriers lock their jaws.
Dr. Brisbin: "The few studies which have been conducted of the structure of the skulls, mandibles and teeth of pit bulls show that, in proportion to their size, their jaw structure and thus its inferred functional morphology, is no different than that of any breed of dog.
There is absolutely no evidence for the existence of any kind of "locking mechanism" unique to the structure of the jaw and/or teeth of the American Pit Bull Terrier.

"Don`t worry, he doesn`t bite." How many have heard this before? Before the puncture wounds, torn clothing, and lacerations, that is. "He`s NEVER done that, you must have startled or tormented him. He`s a good dog. It had to be your fault he snapped." Yeah, right.

because it makes the news. They were never bred to attack people. German shepherds and Rottweiler Doberman are used to attack people. Why wouldn't the police use them if they are that good attacking people?

It makes the news because of th viciousness and fierocity of attack.

Shepards are chosen by police because of their controlability.

Find any comparative article where a shepard goes bad and halfway eats a victim like the pit bull pix above.

You can't.
