I would have to say that would be true for me also. It was the best minding most loving dog I have ever owned.People put their own fears of that animal in their own heads. Any dog can bite, Isn't the #1 biting dog in the us a dalmatian? At that wait it used to be, followed by a poodle. Now isn't that funny.

I am a dog lover, but I was leary of pit bulls. A few years ago, my 17 year old son (at the time) kept asking, begging, and pleading for a pit bull. I insisted and stood strong with my decision to say NO. I came home from work one Friday afternoon looking sooo forward to my weekend due to a week of hell at the crap job I had at the time. I walked in and there sat my son on the couch with this tiny pit bull fast asleep on his chest, I was very very angry and started raising my voice to him about how he defied me and that the dog had to go. I woke the dog, that was my mistake. He waddled to me and licked, and played with me. It was love at first nibble. I told my son he could keep the dog but only if you agreed to let the dog be around the smaller family members ALOT to get used to small kids and only if he raised him like a house dog. To NOT be mean. I can honestly say, he was the best dog I've ever owned in all my years of being a pet owner. It's all on how you raise them. He loved kids!!!! Biggest baby you'd ever seen!! Only thing he ever did was lick you to death!!

I own rottweilers,they have the same rep,as pit-bulls.I raised them for 12 years and never had a problem.Animals react much like people,if they are abused they abuse back.I owed one pit-bull,name was Susie{Yes,I know that was a dumb name for a pit}but she was great with everyone.I think Mike Vicks should be tar and feathered for fighting those Pitt's and Rotties.

Dogs know what you teach them. Doesn`t matter the breed. Just love them unconditionally and in return they will be a blessing.

I have two right now and they are big babies. They hate other dogs, but they love all people they come in contact with. My oldest is 8 years old, will be 9 soon, and I still have people telling me she's going to attack me out of the blue someday. Whatever....

Some of the stupidest things I've ever heard:
Pits have locking jaws.
Pits have _________ lbs. of bite force psi.
Pits brains swell causing them to go crazy.
Pit bulls feel no pain.
Blah, blah, blah....

I wonder why people don't just use common sense instead of repeating stupid things that they hear?

my family had a pitt lab mix and that was such a smart, loving dog. He was so good with our kids, but he was also protective, He was huge, 110 lbs but you could see the pitt in his mouth and neck, especially when he wasn't happy. I felt very safe with him. I miss him alot, he is the reason I would own a pitt today.

Amen 2x to that. Its the humans fault, not the animals which get abused and put through what they go through.

Pit bulls as said before are for cowards.Most are as out of control as their owners are.Cowards breed them to protect theirselves when they start chit with people.They control you by turning the dog on people.People like this are 100% cowards. They do a half a$$ job of training these dogs.Thats why in the end they turn on their owners.

My first pittie was the best dog I ever had (she was from a german line champion), she loved being with children and slept with my cats all the time. As for anything said negatively about this breed. 90% of the time the nay-sayers are always uneducated or unintelligent rushing to blaming the animal (as usual).

But as said about, and I do agree! PUNISH the DEED. Not the BREED.

In my line of work I come in contact with a lot of different breeds. I don't mean to offend anyone here but I have been bitten by a lot more small breeds than large. I see literally hundreds of pit bulls and of those hundreds only 2 are aggressive and they were encouraged to be that way from an early age ( they are professional protection dogs).
In 1988 a "ban" was placed on owning pit bulls in several states and cities. As a result a lot of dogs were set free to fend for themselves (brilliant huh??!?). In some areas the dogs joined together to form a pack. Pit bulls by nature have a strong prey/predator drive and when several are hungry and roaming free..... just imagine the chaos and destruction that caused to livestock and other dogs. A lot of this nonsense started during that time period.
Most of the fear of these dogs is pure ignorance on the part of the general public. ANY large dog can do significant damage to a child (or adult for that matter). The worst bite I have ever received was from a Walker Coon Hound. Remember a couple of years ago when 2 boxers attacked a lady here in Somerset. There were also 2 Chows that attacked a child several years ago. Were those dogs to blame? I say no....it was the owners that didn't confine them adequately.
I personally love pit bulls and look forward to seeing each and every one that come into the clinic where I work!!
