Children turn on thier parents more often than thier pets do. Pitt bulls are loyal to their owners, are also very jealous if you don't pay as much attention to them as you should. The biggest problem with a pitt, they get big and usually hurt you while they are playing. They don't realize how strong they are. Mine still thinks he's a lap dog, he just can't understand why he can't sit in your lap like he used to. All in all, you can mistreat any pet or human and they will turn against you.

The breed should be wiped off the face of the earth with no undue haste, along with their retarted owners.

I agree 100%. They serve no purpose. After having been attacked twice while walking my Lab on a leash. I now carry a bang stick loaded with buck shot, it is easy to use and lethal. Happy hunting.

Some dogs are like some adults and most children. You just gotta get their attention. A trip to the woodshed, a tongue lashing and a old fashioned butt whupping will work wonders.
