In the Quill it tells the story about 2 pitbulls attacking a girls pony and the owner of the pony shot the 2 pitbulls and killed them. One of the dogs (Lokie) was taken to the vet at Talburt Animal hospital And Dr Gunter performed surgery to repair the gunshot wound and the dog is now fine and at home with it's family. I love animals but that dog should of been put down instead of saving it after attacking the pony.

The dog owner should have to pay all fees associated with the incident including a new pony. Then the dog should be put down so as not to harm any one. What if it would have been the little girl that the dogs attacked? Kill the damn dog.

It means that if you're so fond of those kind of dogs then maybe you wouldn't mind if one of them ripped your face off too. After all, it's what they're bred to do.

I don't think the pit bull should be put down. I doubt it's a bad crazy mad dog. I feel sorry for the owner as I'm sure they are hating what their dogs did and they are likely going to be the responsible party. They are probably very thankful that it didn't attack the little girl.

I own dogs myself and I've seen them become very aggressive with people and especially other animals. However, they are extremely friendly with those they know.

If a dog attacks people should look at what the situation was. Most of the times, in my experience, when a person gets bit it's because they knowingly or unknowingly provoked the animal. I've had people run up on my dog and he went for them aggressively. Why. Because he was scared. Once I calmed him down and allowed the person to get familiar he was fine.

When I take my dog for walks he will always get aggressive toward other dogs and sometimes they get aggressive toward him. Had my dog pull the leash from my hands twice and both times I thought I was about to be in the middle of a dog fight, but all they did was sniff each other.

I've got friends with pits and rotts and it's the Chihuahua that you have to watch out for.

Here's the thing. Don't put a dog down just because it attacked or was aggressive. Don't blame an entire bread for the actions of a few. And if you weren't apart of the situation then how can you comment on what should be done to the dog to begin with.

I think I will just start taking care of any loose pit bull I happen to see not attached to an owner. I will not hesistate so any person owning a pit and doesn't want it to disappear, keep it under lock and key because I plan to put their lights out for good. Those SOB's don't need to be brought into this world. Period!

If any animal is innocent it's the pony. Thank what may of happened to the person riding the pony? I'm happy these good for nothing dogs were shot, And its really to bad one survived only to hurt or kill something else.

Pits are not bad dogs as a breed. I can't say that I wouldn't have shot the dogs if I was in the middle of the situation, simply to protect the child and the pony, but that would be true no matter what breed of dog was attacking.
Pit Bulls are so misunderstood. The only pits that are specifically BRED to be aggressive are the ones that are trained to be in a fighting ring.
I'd like to know what kind of pit actually attacked the pony (there are 3 different breeds named under the classification of Pit Bull btw), just out of curiosity.
But a long time ago Pits were known as the "nanny dog" because of their intense loyalty to their human owners and they were extremely protective of children. Over 1,000 years ago, however, they were bred to be aggressive towards other ANIMALS. Specifically bulls -referring to bull-baiting.
On another note: so many backyard breeders have screwed up the bloodlines of the Pits in which commonly can cause negative genes to be inherited --> can be related to aggressive behaviors.
Of course, this can be true for a number of breeds if not all.
But pit bull attacks are the most common in the media simply because they are the chosen breed for the fighting ring, not because of aggression, but because loyalty to their owner, and the mentality to "not give up" is specifically bred into them. The strive to please.

Pit bulls are by far, my favorite breed. I have owned a few of them. One was a rescue that was used as a bait dog at one point before her rescue. Another was an actual fighting dog, and with much training and patience, she learned to get along with our other pit and they ended up being the best of friends.

Don't understand all the fuss, most all untrained dogs will chase stock not just pits, sure it wasn't the first gunshot wound Gunter worked on for that, but let's face it was just a mini pony, that's just like dog food on the hoof.

Pit Bulls make good fun road targets. I can run them over with my BIG 4X4 pick up and never feel a bump. And it's so much fun to see them spinning around is circles out my rear view mirror. It's was so much fun with pit bulls now I do it with all dogs but pit bulls are still on top of my list.
Keep you're FKN dogs locked up. I see them they will be a spot in the road.
