I think that the Taney county police should do their damn job and get all of the damn crackheads off the streets before they worry about a dog that might protect a family from one of these degenerates. PLEASE DO YOUR F'N JOB!!!!!!!!!!

i think that the Taney County Police Department should do their job and get the meth freaks off the street and stop worrying about a dog that might protect a family from a break-in or worse

Sick and Tired,
You should go to your city council and complain about the police coverage you have. Taney County Sheriff's Department has to cover the rest of the county and because of call load don't have alot of time it takes to build these types of cases. Got to your council and try to get more police coverage for your city.

I think everyone needs to realize that not ALL pitbulls are mean. It is the owners that make them that way! Of course if you go up to ANY dog that you don't know, they ALL can be agressive! Especially, if there are other animals around. If you bring your pit around other people ALL the time and NEVER keep it chained up(unless @ work), the pit will grow to be a wonderful guard dog, good companion, friendly, and loyal dog! These dogs are also safe to have around children. If trained proplerly. I had a friend who had two pits, and they were the nicest dogs I've ever met!! I agree on the comment about getting the crack heads off the streets of Branson!! I bet you will be wishing you had a pitbull to protect you, when one of them tries to rob you or kill you!! Also, what about chows?? How come everyone is so concerned about pits? But Chows, Dalmations and alot of OTHER dogs, are just as bad,(if not properly raised). They also said to keep the pit "chained up". BAD IDEA!!! Are you dumb? That's what makes them MEAN!!!! You guys said you didn't get any protest from anyone...well, now you have!! Quit being "close minded"!

and NEXT lets take all guns away from the good citizens. It will stop gun violence. WHAT A JOKE. We have nothing but CLOWNS in Charge!I have a beautiful OLD pitbull he would NEVER hurt a flea. He lays with cats babies, loud little kids for many many years. Because there is a problem with drugy Bums these dogs have been victimized. Take all the pit Bulls away and they will find another "TOUGH" dog and you will want to eventually ban it too..GOOD job Merriam Woods. You know how many dogs are MISTAKEN for pit bulls but are NOT? Do your homework.

to all the people and cops that helped pass the law on pit bulls.I had a pit that like to run and just because someone that has a little pull means everything to someone that only wants her family potected.I done everything they ask got the microchip,was fixed when he was a pup,up to date on shots ,regesterd, and they still made me get rid of him.No matter what when u have the dog from a new born pup till he is 2 he is like your kid.Just cause your kids get in mistuff should u have to get rid of them.

county are sheriff dept. cities are police. if you don't want them telling you how to flip burgers at work or telling your mom how to suck one don't tell them how to do their jobs and they wont give you pointers on yours.

and p.s. if they didn't have to deal with b.s. dog calls tey could have more time to deal with methheads
