Obviously, its unfortunate what happened, but why would you take a random stray and adopt it without first making sure it passes a temperment test? I would never take a stray dog, of any breed, off the street without first making damn sure it has a good temperment. For the protection of my family. This was caused, for the most part, by bad judgement, not by what breed the dog was.

If temperment testing is junk science, then why do the majority of dogs go on to be loving copanions, never doing anything to anyone. Its able to effectively determine whether a dog is aggressive and cant be adopted out. Live with it. Not everything is so cut and dry.

But you must remember that no test is 100% effective. The test fails less than 1% of the time, and that makes it junk science? Well, then I guess home pregnancy tests are junk science too, oh and lets not forget birth control.

<quoted text>prove that wild unsubstantiated claim - YOU CAN'T - most pits are at the shelter because of past aggressive behavior and the shelters hide their aggressive history never telling the new adopters about it allowing them a second chance to attack that is why there are LOTS of shelters across the US that do not adopt out pits period when they come in they are immediately euthanised
Now that, my friend, is one "wild unsubstantiated claim."

There are many reasons people drop their dog(any breed) off at a shelter. Could be that they are moving, having a baby, maybe they werent expecting the dog to be so much work, maybe the dog got loose and became pregnant, maybe the dog did bite someone, who knows. You cant just assume that because its a pit, that it must have been dropped off for aggression. What you are saying is just an assumption and has no merit.

MOST PITS ARE DROPPED OFF DUE TO AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR THAT'S WHY A LOT OF SHELTERS DO NOT ADOPT OUT PITS AT ALL THEY ARE EUTHANISED IMMEDIATELY THAT PROVES RIGHT THERE WHY THE MAJORITY ARE DROPPED OFF THEY HAVE NO POLICY LIKE THIS FOR ANY OTHER BREED OF DOG JUST PITS

I think CD/GROPB should work at a shelter for a month. It would be a surprise education. I have an idea.
When you run out of junk to look up, try to spend an hour browsing the rescue sites and the local shelters. It will be a surprise. There are purebred dogs of all breeds that have been left at the shelter along with the mixed breeds. They are not all pits. You are right though about some people hating to leave their pets at the shelter but they may have no other responsible choice.
There are also the heartless people. I was at a shelter when a woman brought in three small breed purebred female dogs. She had had them from the time they were little and they were all near 5. She ssid I have been using them for breeding but I am sick of it. She signed the papers and never gave them a second look.
If you really WANT to learn something without having to actually see the sad lost animals. Go to the shelter and rescue sites that evaluate the dogs and cats on the list. There is usually a chart or a statement on weather the pet is ok with children or cats.

my 9 year old cousin was bruitally mauled by a golden retreiver, she was walking accross the living room when the family dog attacked, requiring a lot of stitches and almost killed her by going for the neck. the dog was put down the next day.

I was attacked a number of times by one of those little pug dogs from Men in black, finally i was tired of bandaging my ancles and i kicked back, my neighbor hated me for it.

another dog, a lab mix once charged at me on my front porch, it snareled and barked, all i did was come home from work, walk from my car to the door, the dog procceeded to charge through the door before i could close it, i used a bat to keep it back and push it through the door, i shot it the next day and the neighbor was pissed, his fault for not keeping that thing on a leash.

oddly i have never been attacked or know anyone attacked by a pit

wow really? I am an animal lover of all breeds shapes and sizes. i currently have 2 pit bulls, a pit boxer mix, and a great done. Every single one of them are rescued. the difference is i do not have themaround my children unsupervised and w multiple.animals because as with ANY ANIMAL accidents happen. my children walk them all (separately of course) and play w them, but are SUPERVISED. i do know in our area bad breeding or unregulated breeding is a very large issue, along w fighting making mean for "protection" etc is a major issue, but seriously.i have seen more naturally aggressive chiwawas than anything else. You don't here about these attacks bc they are "just playing". it really does come down to ppl & their lack of knowledge and responsibility. I neuter and spay all of my animals and keep them fenced away from children especially, no matter the breed. Isn't safe ALWAYS better than sorry? I love my family, animals included :) in short: do your homework. no two animals will react the.same to any given situation and ANY animals instincts can be triggered at any time, its a part of nature and we can either learn from it or continue stumbling along in the dark.

FOR SOME REASON DOGS DON'T LIKE YOU AND YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE DOES NOT NEGATE THE DOCUMENTED VERIFIABLE FACT THAT PITS SAVAGELY MAUL AND KILL MORE THAN 300+ DIFFERENT BREEDS OF DOGS ADDED TOGETHER I THINK I WILL RELY ON THAT DATA INSTEAD OF ONE PERSON'S PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH A HANDFUL OF DOGS

for some one who loves dogs you should really brush up on how to spell their names {great done and chiwawas] chihuahuas don't rip limbs off they don't rip scalps off they don't cause you to have 1,000+ stitches they don't cause you to be lifeflighted to trauma centers they don't cause you to need 25+ reconstructive surgeries they don't decapitate you they don't skin you everywhere except you faces you don't need to shoot them 10 times to get them to stop attacking and they rarely kill if at all you are comparing apples to oranges you can not compare a nip that causes 2 to 4 punture woulds that needs a bandage to have you limbs ripped off or being decapitated or being skinned everywhere except your face

Funny how you keep mentioning these 300+ breeds, even when the AkC only lists around 230-something different purebreeds(quite a few being toy breeds). So, what are these other 70+ breeds that the AKC doesnt even acknowledge? Let me guess, that got fluffed up too? Wow, you are sure living up to your new nickname.
