Anywho, regarding how your pit bulls lick you, that's their way of tenderizing you before they attack so watch your back or whatever it is they're licking.
Many of these pit bull stories talk about how the dog never bit anyone and was really nice right before they killed a child and/or ripped their face off. This type of dog is unpredictable and should be kept away from children. Or at the very least not left alone with a kid.
so what your saying is you cant leave your child at school or daycare or in the front yard because people are unpredictable i mean damn dog dont know right from wrong like a child doesnt until you teach them and i putt 10,000 dollars up to the person that looks at my dog wrong and gets attack because its not going to happen because i raised my dog the way i would raise my child with respect for other and there thing and if you think im lieing try me

I have a pitbull and she would never do anything remotely close to this. This goes to show that the way you raise your dog can really make an impact on it's behavior throughout it's entire life. I was told that they found dead cats around the neihborhood from this pitbull as well. That should've been the first sign that the dog was dangerous.If my dog showed signs of aggression or hurt another animal it would definitly make me euthanize her. Luckily for us we've raised her to be a nice dog that enjoys the company of other dogs and people especially little children. Yes this dog should be put to sleep and the owner should get the maxximum penalty(maybe put him to sleep too) Any dog raised the wrong way would be capable of doing this and this poor little boy never deserved this. I agree with the person below "amy" outlawing a certain breed is a form of rasicm and narrow mindedness. Just raise your dog right and the way you would raise a child.
You can never say never.

Everybody talks about Pitbulls they killers, visious, other dogs kill and bite peoples face off, but none of those other breeds are mentioned or put in the newspaper, when they bite. The Golden Retriever is # 1 who bites people on the list, not the pitbull. You people need to read and investigate better need to be more educated. Any dog can be visious. It is all about the owner how you raise your dog, is just like a raising a kid! I own a American Staffordshire Pitbull Terrrier, she is so friendly, love kids, other dogs, she loves people, the job they feel to please their owner. Please people take some time next time you go to the Bookstore or Library read about Pitbulls where they come from and what they are about or meet some pitbulls and spent some time with them, I can bet money you will change your mind. I met people who were amaized about my dog. I could write all day about Pitbulls, I spent so much time with my dog 24/7, she goes with to a lot places ride in the car with me in the front seat, she has her own seatbelt and when we stop at alight or so, she smiles to other people next to me , I call her when she smiles Popeye the spinachguy that is how she looks like, I love my dog as you can see and she listens obey well. I read some books about Pitbulls and others dogs and it says all dogs bite once in their lifetime, the problem is with the pitbull they are strong muscle dogs and they have a yaw and teeth and cant let go when they bite , I know it sounds crazy but it is the truth, the pitbull or boxer who has the same problem when they bite. I can not see that a dog just out of no reason bite anybody especially a kid. My dog when she sees a child she goes down on their level height and is very gentle. For excample I have taught my dog when she comes on when we play to ruff because she is so strong and I say AU, she sits and give me shake to say sorry, yes she does and she do that with friends or kids.

It's true. The only thing a ban serves to do is force owners to put their dogs into "hiding." So, the dogs get less socialization with both humans and other canines, making the problem worse.

*Sigh* Why do I have to keep finding common ground with republicans like you, Marty, MountainMan, and occasionally Jasin? WHY!? It's really messing with my head.

Kidding.

But I'm glad we agree on something :)

I agree that it is mostly the owner's fault, but I still believe that pit bulls should be banned. I've been around just about every breed of dog in my life, and pit bulls are just a much more wild and easily angered breed as well as having an extremely strong bite. It's like comparing a bobcat to a house cat. You can definitely raise and tame a bob cat, but it will always be 10 times more likely to attack you no matter how much experience it has being around people, and it has bigger claws to attack you with. That's just something that's in their genetics. A pit bull's genetics make it a fighter and it's body is built to kill.
I really don't see the argument with pit bull lovers. There are hundreds of different dog breeds and mixes that you can choose from when buying a pet, so why the hell do you have to get a pit bull? I understand that it isn't the pit bull's fault for being what it is, but that doesn't give you the right to expose other people to the possibility of your dog injuring or even killing them. A tiger is innocent because it can't help the fact that it enjoys eating people, but that wouldn't justify walking a tiger in public. Get my point?
I'm sure that some Einstein pit bull owner is going to tell me that all dogs can bite, but I'm telling you that pit bulls are way more likely to attack without reason. And on top of that, their bite is much more damaging. So just stop your friggin' whining and choose a different breed of dog... unless you have absolutely no care for the well being of your neighbors and other peoples' children.

Your analogy would better describe hybrids, not pit bulls. Some are more genetically inclined to be aggressive, but those are not the average pit bulls in shelters or in most homes. Those are dogs descended from fighting lines. I'd love to go into detail about how fighting dogs are bred, but it's a lot of typing. Let me know if you care for me to elaborate.

Agreed.
I don't buy into the story that "well it's never showed any aggression towards anyone".
But then that's the mentality of the average pit-bull owner; to lie about it.

Some reports of pit bull attacks aren't actually pit bulls. There was a case a couple years ago in Canada about a 3 year old that was attacked and killed by a group of three pit bulls. It was later revealed that the three year old was left in the back yard alone with three rottweilers. The female was in heat and chained up. The two intact males began fighting over the female and the boy got in the middle of it. But the orginal reports stated the dogs were pitbulls with all of the other details left out.

That's good, because if I had to choose between an unexpected, lightening-quick zap and having my skin and throat ripped apart while I painfully bleed to death over several minutes while their stupid owners yell "bad dog" from their porch couch...

Animals are unpredictable and you know that. Pediatricians tell parents to watch their babies & toddlers closely when they're around animals AND even young children. I hope you reconsider your priorities and that 3 year old's safety.

I received an indirect lightning hit in 1992. Damn thing knocked the crap outta me, blew a hole out of my pinkie right at the knuckle. Not a pleasant experience.

Agreed. I certainly hope the 9 pitbulls aren't sleeping in the child's room at night while the parents are asleep in their own room. Neither my dog nor my cats are allowed in my daughter's room while she's sleeping. It's common sense. Even if an animal isn't violent there is still suffocation risk from any animal, let alone 9!
