Yeah. Bred them to kill DOGS. Not People. This is not the trait embedded in them. It has only given most of them a prey drive.. for some animals, like cats, horses, etc. This is why this breed is not for everyone, and only the responsible people who can meet their needs and provide a suitable environment, and will abide leash laws and the rest of the duties of pet owners.

BSL will not solve the problem of irresponsible and criminal pit bull owners.

It isn't about them going underground because of BSL... they are already underground abusing, fighting, torturing these dogs.

BSL is an idiotic attempt at making it seem like something is being done about people who make this breed of dog aggressive.

BAN IRRESPONSIBLE PIT BULL OWNERS!

I have an american pit bull terrier. Yeah she is loyal to me and my family. Any dog should be taught to be loyal to their family. However, she doesn't go around attacking strangers either. When approached she is happy, wagging her tail, ready to give kisses and love. If a stranger did try to hurt me...she would try to protect me...as would any loyal dog of any breed.

And dogfighters never bred them to be human aggressive...they bred them to be dog aggressive. Read up before you spew ignorance about a breed you know nothing about.

As for your dog being attacked...sorry that happened, but my guess the breed wasn't even a pit bull because people, like yourself, who are uneducated about the breed can't pick a pit bull out of a line up to save their lives.

As far as you blaming the dog for their behavior...again PURE ignorance on your part. Do you blame a 3 year old for violent behavior or do you blame their parents? I'm thinking you blame their parents. The same should be done with dog owners. They should be responsible for their dog's behavior.

I bet you look like your dag walking backwards, lol , they say pets resemble their owner. As to me? I was made in the likeness of God. now off with you and your childish taunts . may your devil dog be euthanized. it must make you fee real tough and cool owning a dog whose only value is to terrorize people. I am backing legislation to make the dog owners MORE responsible for the action of their mutant pets. The owner of a pit bull who mauls a person shoudl be treated the same as a person who whacked smeone with a machete.

Um yeah, you aren't being childish in the least bit. And my dog has never mauled anyone or any other animal. I bet the same can not be said about you.

But the owner of the dogs that mauled Riley's younger daughter said his dogs had never attacked anyone before they encountered Sierra one Sunday in Roosevelt Park... thats a quote out of the paper.. about a pit bull that mauled a little kid.. a little kid who is horibly scarred for life physically and emotionally now. an all too familiar story . But you selfish woman think your adorable little pooch who was bred for one thing ( its meanness ) are too self concerend about your rights. people like you make me sick

A quote out of the paper...than it must be 100 percent true...idiot...
I wasn't put on this earth to make you feel good so I could care less if I make you sick...
If you think american pit bull terriers are the only breed that attacks people because of irresponsible owners you are dumber than I thought...
I bet you are one of those parents who thinks they aren't responsible for their children's actions either...or better yet let us hope to God you aren't breeding...

You are the proud owner of a ticking time bomb lady, sooner or later this adorable pitbull which so resembles its owner in apaearance and temperment has a good chance of causing much grief to someone, a FAR FAR greater chance than any OTHER breed.. I can only hope that pending legislation that will make it tougher on the irresponsible owners of these menaces is passed and I will take glee in knowing that should your menacing freind attack YOU will suffer as well as the victm.. so does it make you feel real tough owning such a dog? LOL seeya buh bye

I had not heard this. We have a pitbull in our office and she's so docile. It's hard to hear something like this.
