Hillary PLEASE GO AWAY. You add nothing intelligent to any of the posts. Your little purse designer dogs are NOT important. The fact that you think blacks, hispanic's and most other races GHETTO and beneath YOU is not important.

Go back to Paris Hilton blogs. That is where you are truly NEEDED.

You have SO lowered the VALUE of these discussions.

This theroy of banning pitbulls is a complete joke!
Each breed of dog is born with a different trate, it's how the dog is raised and treated.
Any dog can be aggressive, but pittys are known to be, so when a pitbull arks up everyone jumps to the conclusion that these dogs are 'out of our control' but they're not.
Just like any dog certain things will trigger their emotions, it's how the owner copes with this.
I'ts the owners fault half the time.

Pitbulls are just like any other ANIMAL, they have to be tuaght manner as well as behavior skills.
And all of this is the OWNERS choice, animals like kids act the way thier parents do

Pitbulls are dangerous and can turn on anybody at anytime and should be banned from south fla. So, if they aren't banned, I think the owner should have to get liability insurance, say 1,000,000 worth, because if your dog eats my child's or pet's or my face off, you as the owner should have to pay for the damage. simple. Of course, this would be after i kill the dog..
You are soooo stupid..did u kno that black labs are more dangerous and are the worst dog to have around ur kids? Any dog can bite ur face off..it just depends on how the dog was raised..i have a 90lb pit..he rolls on his back and gives up to a 10 lb dog..dog that sound like hes gonna eat u? obviously ur just a Dumb@$$ and u just read up on the bad stuff about pitbulls..i wouldnt be suprised if u were a racist too...Approximately 50 children in the US are killed every year by their cribs 25 times the number of children and adults killed by pit bulls. better ban cribs too.. http://www.realpitbull.com/perspective.html

<quoted text> Pit owners = ignorant people
My feelings exactly..I hate a pit bull..a small child..3 or 4 years old was playing in his families yard about a month ago near here and a neighbors pit bull was running loose as usual..it ran into the yard and grabbed the child by the shoulder near his neck and was dragging him off.the owner of the dog came out and tried beating the dog off the child and couldn't..he had to kill the dog in order to get the child loose.When the boy was taken to the hospital they could stitch him up on the inside but had to leave the outside open because it was so close to his heart and they were afraid of infection setting in..I have not heard anything yet..but I can bet you one thing..if anything happens to that baby there is going to be one hell of a law suit..oh and the man owns 2 more pits..they should be outlawed..I think they are nothing more than deadly weapons..but then again that is only my opinion..

It's about irresponsible ownership, not breed. The dog you were referring to was running loose, which is a huge sign that the owners probably don't care for it nearly well enough.

The CDC and AVMA as well as the national canine research council all agree that far more important than the breed of dog is the way it is cared for. When counting all dog bite fatalities, no matter what the breed, irresponsible ownership is the pattern seen almost every single time.

Places that have banned pit bulls have not seen a decrease in serious attacks (Denver, Co. and the UK, for starters), but places that have instead opted for responsible ownership laws have seen dramatic decreases in serious attacks (see Calgary).

IDIOTS!

Pitbulls are emotionally identical to that of any other Terrier.

IF a pitbull could turn on you, a Yourki could turn on you.

HONESTLY, I've found that Poodles seem to be very temperamental.

I hate pits. But more than that, I HATE pit bull apologists.

Yep. "My dog has never bitten any one."
"The baby plays with my pit."
"My pit is the sweetest dog".
blah blah blah.
Out of the 160 dog breeds, you can't find another one to like?
epic fail pit owners. epic fail...

Dick, do you think people would actually admit that their dog had issues but they did nothing about it? That would show they were responsible for a bite, and I don't believe any ever do. When I hear people talking about an attack from another breed, I often hear people make excuses for the dog's behavior, and what's worse, I hear others agreeing with them. I don't think it's acceptable for a dog of any breed bite, therefore I hold all dog owners accountable for their pet's action. Ultimately it is up to the owner to ensure their dog is socialized, trained, and safely contained, at the very minimum.
