Why must people own these dogs? Protect their meth kitchens? Come on.
These are killers. Strong, relentless killers.

It is a roll of the dice who the next victim will be. They all have the potential. Even those that were not trained to fight.

Assess such hefty fines that to own of those stupid animals the owners will go broke. Jail time to owners. Make it hurt as much as the pain their dogs deliver when they go insane.

"Once Bitten" I can't wait for you to get a bite from your loving poodle! You are a worthless waste of time and space! You just a bitter person looking to make everyone around you unhappy! Probably have enough of your own problems with the cops. What's wrong your mommy didn't love you enough didn't kiss you enough!

I don't have a dog. I don't have police trouble and have a very good relationship with my mother. I'm a productive member of society. I'm happy, have a lot of friends and am fun to be around. I don't rely on animals to substitute for human interaction. Normal people don't. You should try it.

I bet your the type of person that would get a dog and chain it up outside for the rest of it's life! I have no more use for you dog hater!

Actually I do like dogs. I just travel too much right now to give one the attention it needs. Maybe you should research how many people are killed by pit bulls. Maybe you should just get a grip on reality.

Maybe you should research it. 60 in like 20 years pit, 43 in 20 years bull, 37 in like 20 years German. OK so how many deaths are there by other means? We are talking about a very small scale here compared to other animals! Hell the Mosquito kills more people every year than dogs all together in the last 20 years!

Did you hear about the 8 month old baby in Virginia that was mauled? I guess in your eyes the baby deserved it since a pit bull is superior to a human.

Comparing a mosquito to a pit bull is hardly appropriate. If you really want to follow that analogy, we spend plenty of money to kill mosquitos. Maybe we should spend plenty of money to kill pit bulls and their stupid owners. Yes, I'm calling YOU stupid. How do you like that?

In July 2008, the journal of Applied Animal Behaviour Science published a study done by researches at the University of Pennsylvania. They surveyed and discussed with over 6,000 dog owners their experiences with aggression in their dogs. The researchers compiled a report containing 33 dog breeds most likely to bite. Here are the dog breeds with the greatest percentage of bites and bite attempts on humans.

Dachshund. Yes, the sausage dog is most likely to bite strangers and its owners.
Chihuahua. These are big dogs in a little package, and none are afraid to tell you so. Chihuahuas are very likely to bite strangers and owners.
Jack Russell Terrier. These feisty little dogs are also quick to nip. They have a tendency to try to nip at strangers and family members.
Australian Cattle Dog. This breed is great to have around the home, but you must be careful; they are herding dogs, which means they are very likely to nip family and strangers.
American Cocker Spaniel. A common breed in many homes in the United States, this dog does have tendencies to nip and bite at owners.
Beagle. Another family favorite, beagles seem to nip and bite at their families.
There are other breeds, like the Akita and Pit Bull Terrier, which are more prone to trying to nip or bite other dogs or animals.

It must always be kept in mind that small dogs often go un-reprimanded for biting. Many owners find it cute. It is also the only way a small dog has to get people to back up. Remember, you are a giant to him!

There are many breeds of dogs, like Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, and Mastiffs, who often get a bad reputation for biting. These dogs have been bred to be protective dogs, plus their size makes them do serious damage when they do bite. Because of this, more stigma is put on the breed.

There are more stats to prove that genetically pit bulls are more apt to become predators than other dogs.

I am so happy that these dogs did not get into a private home and kill a child. Was there not a recent release regarding a pit bull in virginia beach mauling an 8 month old and now the child is in critical condiditon.

I am a dog lover; however, no good seems to have come from owning a pit bull.

I have a pit bull as a pet and she is nothing but a pleasure, being loyal, affectionate and a joy to have in our lives. She was treated with both firmness and love since she was a puppy, and it is most important to remember that no dog is ever born aggressive,, they are created. The blame for any aggressive dog lies in the hands of the irresponsible owner.

You are stupid. Pits are bad dogs and should be kicked in the teeth until dead.
