My opinion is that every pit bull and rottweiler should be shot. I hate them. The only people that have them are the ones that are hiding something. As in drugs, etc. I hope all the people that are stupid enough are the dogs next meal. LOL
Not all pit bulls are bad and just because someone has onne does not mean they are hiding something. I have one friend that has a pit bull and she is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. She is very patient and loving. I was shockedd at first because of everything I had heard about them. Since then I have taken care of another friends pit bull for a few weeks and when it was time to give her back I didnt want to. This pit is smart, playful, loving, good with kids, and a good watch dog. Since being around those two pits I have decided that I want one. As long as they are raised properly they are excelllent dogs. If raised to be aggressive they will be and because their jaws are so powerful is the reason they can do so much damage, not because that is neccessarily their intention. The pit I took care of could do some damage just when we were playing and I know she didnt mean too.

Bullshit, Proud to be Gay. Every person that has had one of these dogs will tell you they are the sweetest, most loving dogs they have ever had. Tell that to the kid that has stitches in their head. Tell that to the parents that are burying their babies because one of these sweet dogs killed them. You are as far out of your mind as they are.

It is not the dog's fault it is how that dog was treated. Any dog treated poorly will have the same reaction the only difference is pit bulls can do a lot more damage. Pit bulls are not the only dog that has hurt or even killed people. The problem is that it happens more often with pit bulls because of how strong they are. I have seen more than one chow turn on their owner and put their owner in the hospital. when you here about a pit bull they have generally hurt someone outside of their family. I have never heard of a pit bull being nice their whole life and then suddenly attacking their owner. They are very powerful dogs and unfortunately when they are provoked they can do more damage than most dogs.
