The last few times I went to Stevens Swan I notice that mostly there are pitbulls housed there. When I ask the question why there are so many pitbulls there, all I get is silence. You cant even walk by their cages without them barking, growling and lunging at you. Who on earth would adopt them? The very few normal, other breed of dogs they have there are stuck between them monsters. I think someone there has a soft spot for these monsters and Stevens Swan is becoming a pitbull rescue. They should be cracking down on these people who keep breeding these monsters.

The kind of people who own pit bulls shouldn't own a pet rock for crissakes.

Obviously you've bought the hype. Pit bulls are not monsters. Some of the people who own them could fall into that category. Who would adopt a pit bull? Someone who loves dogs.

Of course the thread was started to get a rise out of people.

No, I just want to know why there are so many pitbulls at the shelter and only a couple of other dogs, which you cant even look at without getting lunged at by one of the pitbulls.

Because the macho innercity gansta wannabes who think owning a pitbull makes them look tough are irresponsible morons who don't know enough to come in out of the rain. Their girlfriends all have babies and they have pitbulls and I agree with a previous poster, neither group should even be allowed to own a pet rock. These guys are pthetic losers who don't realize that owning a dog or fathering a child and not taking responsibility for it just shows them for the lowlife scum that they are.

Totally agree. No place in society for them or their pitbulls.

Lots of breeds lunge at kennel gates. They crave attention and human companionship, food, scratching behind their ears, play... Stevens-Swan doesn't put up vicious dogs for adoption. They evaluate the dogs' personalities and try to match the dogs to the right home.

Remember Apollo. He didn't ask to be tied out in freezing weather, starved and neglected. Given that start in life, he SHOULD have hated humans, but he didn't. This beautiful Pit Bull turned out to be perfectly adoptable.

If you want to vilify a breed, start with the gangsta wannabes who have to hide behind a dog to look tough.

It's guys like this who fill the shelters with Pit Bulls, in answer to the original question. No dog deserves to be treated this way.

The real monster walks on two legs.

This has nothing to do with race. Nothing. Trying to feed racism with this issue doesn't do a thing to change things for the dogs.

We have laws that are supposed to protect animals from abuse and neglect. Enforce those.

Sorry guys I've own pit bulls all my life and grew up with pit bulls . No one ever got bite or hurt. It not the bully its the owner, maybe if we make owner reponisble for thier pit bulls and not blame the pit bulls, there wouldn't be problem. The dogs bark and jump due to kennel sydrome just mean they been there to long. they need a family and love to change them. I'm not pit bull lover i'm a dog lover they all do the same thing no matter what breed. Don't fight over this , just help the dogs no matter what breed. if you see abuse turn it before another good dog goes bad.

Pit bulls are inherently violent and should be euthanized immediately upon arrival at the shelter.

There are so many at the shelter because blacks have been caught. They can't think like a normal human race, they only think about spears and running from lions.

If you have young children or have them over as guests or elderly people then you should NEVER adopt a PitBull or Rottie. Dont get this breed unless you raise them yourself from a young pup. You have no idea what these 2nd hand dogs have gone thru and what might trigger them to attack and maul one of your loved ones.
If you can't figure THAT out, then you shouldnt own dogs and have your kids taken away by CPS.

So True - if they cant be trusted to maintain and clean their own neighborhoods, rented apts and homes or even Public, Welfare or Sec 8 housing - how can they even care for their kids and pets? They CANT.
