I don't think they should allow pit bulls to be bred, I know people say the dogs are not mean, people make them mean, but there is just too many attacks. How many more people have to get hurt. Someone needs to do something.

I note that the gentleman in the article who supports banning "vicious" dogs has a Golden Retriever. My cousin's five year old daughter was killed by a Golden Retriever. They score lower on temperament testing than the pit bull. This purebred Golden Retriever seized Lynn by the throat and shook her like a rag doll. Although the hospital was only five minutes away, she bled to death from the jugular vein and was DOA. Any dog can bite. When are we going to stop punishing animals and get to the root of the problem - the owners.

Why can't this county have laws as other counties and make pet owners put up fences and have leash laws? That not only would protect pets from getting in the street but would protect citizens from the dogs. Any dog not contained get picked up. After the owners pay enough fines, they would put up fences. Our county tax dollars should not be spend on our police having to control dogs. That should be the owners burden.

Pit bulls arent the problem. Owners are. Any dog will and can bite. A labrador retriever can be just as mean and vicous as any dog.

i dont think you should be alowed to bred. I have a pit and he loves kids but he was rased that way he wasnt raised to fight. Ive been around lots of dogs and there is alot worse than pit bull dogs.

!!!!!Get educated before you speak
A 6-week-old girl died Saturday night after she was mauled by the family's dog, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The attack occurred in the girl's home, Deputy Cruz Solis said.
An uncle baby-sitting the newborn left the child on a bed unattended while he went to the kitchen to prepare a bottle for her, Solis said. When he returned, he found the family's Pomeranian dog on the bed attacking the baby, Solis said.
The man freed the child from the dog and called for help. The baby died shortly after at Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina, according to Solis.
The parents of the child, whose name has been withheld by officials, were in the Philippines, Solis said
Should we let this Pomeranian breed become extinct as well Get a clue any dog can bite, attack and kill. the problem here is the owners and their lack of responsable training and confinement I happily confine my 2 beautiful baby girls (both Pits) to my king sized bed at night and to my well fenced in back yard and bedroom by day and they are much nice than a certian Pom. I have read about.

ya know it kinda fuckin sucks when people like u have an attitude that way. The problem is not with the dogs it is the people who own them. I own 3 of them and my son is 5 Blind and autistic he has been around them all for years. You people have a pissy attitude and it bothers me see Shephards poodles collies and labs and snakes n spiders and everything else are used as pets in homes, Here we are critizizing the animal... grow up man i have never had a problem with none of mine although i was raised with common sense also look at how these kids are gettin hurt. Ok just recently we had a young girl get bit in Michigan where i am from The reason she got bit was because her parents allowed her to get in the dogs face while he was eating again a pit bull.... a dog follows a kid on a bus and gets bit ... what the helll was the dog doing that close to the bus... Ya know there is a time where we need to ask other questions the parents of children who go up to strange dogs and the owners who think it is kewl to fight pit bulls when they are beautifull animals .... My son will have one as a seeing eye dog u watch .... I just thought that ur attitude was fucked up when u sed they should not be able to breed well neither should you, so less people have ur point of view.

It truly people like you who give this breed a bad name. I have 2 pit bulls and they live in complete harmony with me, my 3 year old daughter, my 3 chihuahuas, and 3 cats. I have worked with animals all my life and have found that ANY breed of animal can be aggressive. People need to start seeing some of the good traits these animals have instead of the media hype. People get bit by different breeds everyday but you will never see that. Open your eyes.

Make people who have pets provide better outside housing. My neighbor according to Horry County police is doing the right thing but I can assure you the pets are treated as well as they are being told. Why can't they put up survalliance cameras to see how pets are treated from time to time. I want stricter stiffer laws for people who hurt animals. There shoulf be a data bank like with sex offenders so they can't own pets anymore.

I think it is really wrong for everyone to judge pits as such vicious dogs when german shepards,dobermans,and many other dogs attack ppl everyday!It isn't the pits fault that they are used cruely for dog fights or that they are built the way the are. My family and i are planning to move to myrtle beach and i hope there are no laws against us keeping our kids (pits) because that is what they are, part of the family!

NO dogs should be bred. Forcing a dog have liter after liter of pups, then after she nurtures them for 6 weeks, taking them from her and selling them off for your own personal wealth is selfish, to say the least.

Not to mention, inbreeding causes numerous heath problems for the pups, and is producing a vast, unmanageable overpopulation of animal shelters because the owner later decides he/she no longer wants the pup, he/she neglects the pup, or he/she abandons the pup, leaving it for dead.

Bottom line: if you can not give an animal proper care, DO NOT GET AN ANIMAL. and if you want an animal, don't BUY ONE from a selfish breeder, ADOPT one from a local shelter, or foster one if you don't know if you can keep the pup long-term!:o).

As for the pit bull comment, there are VERY FEW pure bred pit bulls still out there. The dogs that are biting are any kind of various breed that APPEARS to be a pit bull, and ignorant people assume the worst about the pit bull breed, and therefore ASSUME it is a pit bull.
Don't believe me, see for yourself!:o)--> http://www.pitbullsontheweb.com/petbull/findp...

I have somethings to say about this. People should not allow any dog to be left alone with little children because any dog can become annoyed with the voice of and the way little children play and may provoke them. Pits have a very powerful bite. When I grew up we had a couple pit bulls over the years, never with incidents, and neither did my relatives. I did however, have an instance where I was at a friend's house. The neighbor's dog a lab was never let out it's small pen, and happened to be loose. It came out of nowhere and attacked my little dog who was with me in my friends yard (tresspassing). It costs over $500 at the animal emergency hospital, but the single bite of the black lab into my shiz tzu's abdomen and back was too much for her to overcome and she died. The man didn't have the decency to even pay for the vet bill. I could have taken him to court; but that would have been a long drown out thing, and it was hard enough losing my dog from such a brutal attack from a black lab, and chose not to have to relive the event. I decided to let her RIP knowing I did the best I could by her after such a brutal attack.

Kudos to you for posting this. You are so right. I lost my dog when a black lab entered my turf out of nowhere, unprovoked and attacked and killed my shit tzu. People are very ignorant when it comes to animals.
