You don't understand that pit bulls are not the same, as say a corker spaniel (sp ??). They were originally bread to fight, and they don't have the temperament to be safe around children.

As mentioned several times, pitbulls are NOT suitable as family dogs. Especially if there are small children. Hope the kid will be ok.

Totally agree, but so many people are oblivious the fact, put bulls are a very dangerous breed.

What you might want to take into consideration is that many breeds of dogs would do the same thing if not properly trained. It would be dangerous for a child to put his/her face near a Chihuahua's dish. What might be said is that nobody should own any type of dog unless they are going to care for it properly and train it properly. Watching Cesar Millan would be a good start. Funny how it is the human that really needs training.

I don't understand the difference between a cocker spaniel and a pit bull?
What about my comment made you think that?!?!?!

Petey on the Little Rascals was a Pit Bull, so is Daddy on The Dog Whisperer. It's all the bad inbreeding that makes dogs mean, not the dogs nature. The dog should have been trained to be non-food aggressive from puppyhood.
It's not the dog's breed, it's the people (breeders and owners).
Watch the shows again,Petey goes after a lot of people on the childrens behalf! haha

What you say is mostly true, that all dogs can be dangerous around children; but because of their breeding and in breeding, pit bulls are especially dangerous. They are generally not suitable as a family pet, around small children. Cesar Millan makes it look that they are just like any other breed, but that is not correct. A majority of the time when someone gets attacked by a dog, it's a pit bull.

Cocker spaniel's are generally docile, where as a pit bull is not. If a child had done that with a cocker spaniel, there would have been less a chance of being bitten.

That may be true, but if you stick your face in front of ANY dog's mouth while he's eating, you run the risk of getting bitten.

Chihuahua's are notorious biters, and know for being mean.

I watched this chopper over the 210 freeway as it was preparing to land & thought someone must be seriously hurt. Then the article says child was only bitten in the lip & not serious. There is a great hospital up on Grand Ave. in Glendora called Foothill Presbyterian & an ambulance could have gotten there in a matter of minutes, actually a shorter time than I think it took to transport to LA. Any dog will get agressive while it is eating. I blame the parents in this case for not teaching the child to stay away from dogs while they are eating, I have a cattle dog mix & he would tear you up if someone was in his face while he was eating. Oh, & by the way, we also own a Golden Retrevier & a Pit Bull. Bottom line, PARENTS WATCH YOUR CHILDREN MORE CLOSELY WHILE AROUND DOGS!!
