my neighbor got a pitbull a while back and i told him that i hae 2 kids and they love to play outside and to keep it on his own property.
he said the same thing about it being a sweet baby and it would'nt hurt anyone.
well about 2 or 3 weeks later it was on my front porch, and when i opened the front door it growled and barked at me.
i told my wife to get the kids in from then back yard and when everyone was in the house i opened the front door again and it barked growled and come toward me.
i then proceeded to take my .357 with hollow points and blow its fucking brains out.
it was a mess, i then shoveled it up and put it in a bucket and put it on my neighbors front porch and told him thats what you get.
LOL

I wish I could help you. I recently sold rental property where I allowed all breeds with no pet deposit or extra pet rent. The dogs have always been far less destructive than kids and were always more welcome to me as a landlord (and the neighbors).

The thing about rental now under Kentucky state law, landlords can be held accountable for any dog attacks that is done on property they own. Under law if they give permission for animals of these sorts they are libel and considered part owner of the dog if it attacks someone. Will be very interesting how this law works out in the courts.

God, you people are BEYOND ignorant. How many of you have owned or been around a pit? I have two pits & two Malteses & my Malteses are FAR more aggressive than my pits. If any of you closed minded arrogant people knew ANYTHING about this lovely breed you would know that most dogs that attack have been trained to do so by there owners. NO, they are not aggressive by nature. They are so loving & protective by nature. Geez you people make me sick! Get a life!

ANY dog can be a problem if has a careless and irresponsible owner. A Jack Russell Terrier killed a baby in Lexington a couple years ago, in fact.

Its not the dogs, its the owner.

Our pitbull terrier does pet therapy at nursing homes. She is so gentle I clean her teet with a dental instrument my self.

As you can see by my handle, its my favorite breed.

Just Google dog attacks in the news part of the search engine. The highest count of maimings and killings will be pit bull breeds, the second will be rottweilers. It has been that way for years...

I feel sorry for the breed for how they are often treated and I do feel they are a hazard. I don't understand why ppl want to take such a risk. I've noticed it's usually ppl with insecurity issues that needs to feel like their big and bad.

I am a 60 year old woman who drives a 20 year old Honda. I don't think I'm insecure. Been a dog lover my whole life. My favorite breeds are pit bull type dogs. When we rescued our pit, she had been very poorly treated but now our Pit is the greatest dog in the world. She is a Canine Good Citizen and highly trained. Wouldn't trade her for anything.

In general, I just like big mutts and I cannot lie.

In specific, Pits are almost always very trainable, clean, smart, quiet like most bully breeds, natural clowns who love people. On the negative side, as with all terrier breeds, they can be more aggressive with other dogs and other animals if you aren't careful.

They aren't suitable for police work or guard work, because you really have to horribly mistreat and destroy a dog to make it aggressive to people. Most are extremely gentle. The English used to call their equivalent, the Staffordshire Terrior, The Nanny Dog because they are generally so great with kids.

Sadly, these dogs are often owned by people who shouldn't have a gold fish. These dogs have been very much sinned against by humanity. That much is surely true.

Used to be, it was OK to stereotype people racially. Look how that worked out.

Belief is a powerful thing. Prophecy all too often tends to be self fulfilling.

Try to keep an open mind, not one that is empty except for unreasoning prejudices. Don't believe everything the media tells you.

I wish people would think long and hard before they acquire ANY dog, of ANY breed.

I wish people would quit breeding dogs for money.

A living being is a great responsibility. Dogs, in particular, are very social and emotional animals who often and sadly do not get their basic needs met.

Dogs are more sinned against than sinning.

I don't know how much longer people will be able to keep these breeds in the state of Kentucky. Pit bulls, Rottweilers, Doberman and such.
They are making laws in many states you must carry expensive liability insurance and / or put fences up or put a muzzle on them out in public. Many landlords don't want that type of dog on their properties because of the liability and lawsuits. Several owners have been charged with manslaughter and made legally libel for injuries, hospital bills. One recent case was a millionaire who after the lawsuit was left penniless.
They are talking about putting such laws into effect in Louisville, KY after some pit bull attacks that have happened. In some counties in Kentucky it is illegal to own certain breeds. If they pass those laws in Louisville slowly the rest of Kentucky including Lexington will probably follow suit. I would personally not own that kind of dog, to much liability.

The Nanny Dog because they are generally so great with kids. A untrue myth created by a woman that is head of one of the pit bull organizations.

Several organizations that keep track of dog attacks say pit bulls and rottweilers are at the top of the list for maiming and killing of people. Any time you do a search on dog attack on Google pit bulls show up over and over again in the news for maiming and killing people.

To many have been family pets that turned against their masters or killed children in these family these dogs were not mistreated an raised in a loving home and their owners were saying the same things as you are now before the attack.

You're trying to compare animals to humans, dogs pit bull or otherwise are not human they are animals that are largely ruled by instinct. Dogs are not social like humans, your confused about pack animal behavior, they behave toward humans like they are apart of their pack or hunting group.

Dogs also do not have emotions like humans, much of what they react to is instinctual on their part they react to humans like they are the dominate alphas in the pack just like they would in nature before they were domesticated. Remember these where wild predatory animals at one time, that is why we who know and understand something about animal behavior are not that surprised when one tears a child all to pieces when the runs and cries out, behaving like a prey animal.

I can agree many people do not need any kind of dog, they do not really understand animals, nor know how to take care of them or control them. You see many people physically weak and mentally poor who have these big breeds pit bulls, rottweilers and such. They would not have the physical or mental strength to control these dogs in a life threatening situation, not even if it was their own life being threatened.

Remember this one thing, animals compete on many levels, it one of the pack mates is seen to be weaker it may be killed by its own litter mates. This also happens with domestic dogs, always striving to be the alpha, to be on top, if it is a big, stronger dog. Some masters / owners have lost their lives because they did not understand that simple principle of instinctual behavior.

That is part of the reason that many older people and children are being maimed and killed by these large dogs, they see them as weaker pack mates.

We have heard that many times, guess what if your dog attacks someone guess what you will be put in the same category by other pit bull owners, you will become the careless and irresponsible owner and the rest of the pit bull owners will turn their back on you...

No actual statistics, just more regurgitated, brain-disengaged, prejudice-indulging media hype.

All too often, people expressing strong opinions don't know what they are talking about. You already basically admitted that you ruined a perfectly good dog and blamed the dog. Dogs don't just turn bad except in extremely rare cases where they develop a brain tumor or virulent infection.

Very high odds are YOU are the cause of the dog's behavior. At the VERY least, you are an insensitive, condescending windbag. I suspect much worse, having studied a bit of psychology. My assessment is that people cross the street when they see you coming.

Unfortunately, its other people and in this case your poor dog that bear the consequences of your clueless acts.

Go troll, troll, troll your boat.

I have lived around animals most of my life, I was raised on a farm and got to observe animal behavior first hand. Animals behave by instinct, they are trained even by using the instinct that is hard wired into their very makeup. All animals are trained in that way by rewards for the most part.

Take sheep, cattle and such they can be driven by a human or dog by using their flight response, the desire to keep a certain distance between themselves and what they perceive as a predator. I was shown by my father how to work with those instinctive responses, it is easy to train several hundred head of cattle for instance, teach them how to eat, teach them how to eat in the places you want them to be.

If you want them to come to the barn let them see you with a bucket of sweet feed and feed them in the barn a few times. The next time you want them in the barn take a bucket with a little sweet feed and rattle it and call out they will come running. If you want them in the corral by the loading chute, just feed them a couple days at the corral. The next time you need them in that corral just take a bucket with a little sweet feed and rattle it they will come a running. If you want a horse for example to load up in a trailer, all you have to do is put a handful of sweet feed in the front of that trailer and maybe a little on the floor for encouragement they will eventually get in the trailer willingly. These things are well known to us old farm kids, we used these animals instincts as tools most everyday of our lives, its that simple.

All dogs are pretty much pack animals and predators, they behave in a instinctive way just as the prey animals do. They hear something scream and run (children) sometimes they attack, when they see someone old and weak sometimes they attack, why because they see these ones as prey in many cases, or weak ones in the pack, these groups of people are the one predominately being attacked.

Also many have noticed those jumpy things and swings that are cranked up or run on batteries people get for little babies have caused attacks in some instances, again prey behavior.

I some cases the dogs do mirror owners behavior, or are sent to attack another human. But in most cases these are just family pets being reported on, they say the same as many other pit nutters, he was such a loving dog we just don't know what happened. And just like pit nutters everywhere they are turned against by other pit bull owners like you, it always comes down to it was the owner fault. Just think when your dog turns to attack someone it will automatically be your fault and the other pit bull owners will say exactly the same thing about you.

I never ruined anything and do not own dogs by choice anymore, the last dog I owned was a Rottweiler they also are known to be aggressive and are number two right now in the maim, kill categories against humans. You try to deny these animals are responsible for maiming and killing yet the information is out there from many sources. Your in denial, I pray you don't have to learn from experience, experience can be pretty rough sometimes when you don't have respect for reality.
