People are so arrogant these days they think getting rid of Pitbulls will resolve their dog issue what happens when Rotweilers become popular again? Why don't they just ban dogs! The biggest reason why pitbulls are a "problem" is because they are the majority of our dog population...if everybody owened a lab then their would be problems with labs also. We need to have awarness and maybe need to have stronger laws if someone wants to own any kind of dog. We have to have a license to drive but not to be completly responsible for something that no matter what dog breed is potentially dangerous. Someone needs to come up with a creative solution other then just banning one breed because that is not a solution!

The problem is not so much with the breed of the dog but the quality of the owner. Any dog is the product of its enviroment. True the pit has a nasty reputation. and they are notoriously hard to train. I feel that if one wants to own a pit or any other breed, they had better to be willing and able to care for and train their animal or by pass the opportunity. A dog should, in my opinion, be a part of your family and is just as important as one of your children. If you just want to buy one to tie up in the back yard and ignore, then you are going to have a problem no matter what breed.

If you take on a dog. Be prepared to make it part of your life. For the entire life of the animal.

I am the owner of 2 wonderful pits. Never an issue with either one. You can contribute aggressive behavior of ANY dog back to the owner. There are bad dogs in EVERY breed. Actually, studies show that labs have the most reported attacks on people. The only reason pits are so publisised is because of the damage they do when they do attack. People need to stop fearing what they don't know and quit being so ignorant and open their minds. This breed is loyal, loving, fearless-just amazing.

LET ME SAY THIS... WHEN I MOVED HOME MY MOM WAS SO SCARED, I HAD BROUGHT A PIT HOME AND SHE WASNT BUDGING!!! WELL TO SAY THE LEAST SHE LAYS ON THE FLOOR AND PLAYS WITH HIM AT NIGHT BEFORE SHE GOES TO BED!!! MY PIT LOVES HIS FAMILY AND PROTECTS US TO THE FULLEST, NEVER SHOWS AGGRESSION TO ANYONE AND EVERY TIME I LOOK AT HIM I KNOW THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE THE ONLY DOG I'LL EVER OWN!!!

I have 2 pits right now and have had several others over the years. They are not "notoriously hard to train". They are, in fact, notoriously easy to train. Loving owners have naturally loving dogs - mean, agressive people have agressive pit bulls. Banning bullies (the people) would solve a lot more problems. Show your kids love and they will show their pets love. Then those kids will grow up having loving dogs. Pretty simple? Yup.

I think the problem is with the fact that many of them have owners that are training them to be violent. The issue is many of the owners that are the reason Payette County is doing this run meth labs out of their homes. I have talked with Payette County Sherriff's deputies before who stated that a violent pit bull is almost 100% certain to be guarding a meth lab.

I am the Proud owner of three georgous american red nose pit bulls and i have grown up around the breed my whole life they are the most loving trusting loyal breed on the planet. I have numbers of people approach me while walking my dogs and pet them putting their faces within inches of my dogs and then the minute they ask what kind of dog it is and i tell them its a pit bull they say oh my these dogs are mean and start walking the other way its people like that in this world who are so closed minded and ignorant to the point where they the breed will never be let down the impression of a natural born killer

Pit bulls are not bad dogs olny the people who raise them.. sumtimes dogs bite out of fear or they get startled thats not thair fault my dog bit my nose one time when startled him by waking him up from a dream... then he cryd for a few minouts and sulked around feeling bad about it some times its just a natral reaction... most bites are not just bad dogs herting people there are reasons examples , fear , bing taunted , beatin , misstreated , or neglectied, and there are a few others. Dogs rarly bite for no reason

They are DOGS , they are OUR pets , nots the other way around.... if a dog is not behaving as should , its the "trainer/owner" that is the problem and should be the one answering questions . not an age old breed that has been nothing but loyal even to royalty

Stupid, absolutely stupid. To ban a breed of dog is as bad as racial segregation. The public officials that start this kind of crap should be booted from office pronto. If they are so misguided and uneducated to pass BSL, (breed specific legislation) I certainly do not want them making ANY OTHER important decisions.

No dog is man made !! thats just idiosy to even say , and they werent Breed for fighting thats way they say PIT BULL they were used to bring BULLS into the PITS for ranchers .... Mine is a very sweet loyal and loving dog, as was any that i have owned , they are great with the heards , horses and my children, it takes a good person to raise such a smart dog , if half our population was as smart and loyal as these breeds which are TERRIERS we would have the problems we do...

The problem I have run into here in Canyon County is ,forgive the finger pointing at a race, Mexican Pit Bull owners. Many of them are getting Pit Bulls as a status symbol and do not treat them as pets, but property.
My neighbor has four, and one night none of them were tied up. One of the dogs was very aggressive and ran at me when taking the trash out. They put a pile of dog food in the driveway to feed their dogs.
On one occasion in Lakeview Park, I witnessed a Mexican man screaming at his Pit Bull. You don't treat an animal that's part of your family like that. The problem is growing exponentially as they breed them like crazy.
They don't seem to even consider getting any other breed, which leads me to believe it's only because of the "tough" reputation that Pit Bulls have. I love all breeds, but if banning will stop people from irresponsibly raising them, then that's what is needed. The authorities are not able to control the problem as it is right now.

I have to say banning Pit Bulls is soooooooo stupid I've been raised with Pit Bulls and Dobermans my whole life and I have to say my Pit is the most loyal pet I have ever had. People need to relize its the idiots of the mean ones that ruin it for the ones who really do love and care for the Pit. My dog is with me where ever I go and around many different people and cultures I have never had a problem with him what so ever. So what is the city going to do? are they going home to home and checking for Pit Bulls? Do people relize little dogs do damage too?

You sound like a real inbred hillbilly bob!!! Your so stupid if you think YOU have more of a right to be in North America then Native Mexicans do. They have been in North America for thousands of years and your inbred disease infested A## has been here what 200-300 years. I'd like to rid the world of pieces of s67t like you who have no common sense at all.
