<quoted text>I just read about what happened to those dogs and I saw no where that is said they are helping the disabled. They did only put one out of 50 down for agression, and a few others for medical and health reasons. They have adopted some out but most are still in care, still being rehabilitated and they know that some will never be rehabilitated enough to be adopted.
I think he meant they were rehabilitated so that they could fight again. ;)

We have a lot to learn from this breed.
Um - sorry but that's total bullshit. most went to foster homes, some were adopted, a few extra agressive ones were sent to an animal sanctuary in Utah.

BTW, pit bulls would make horrible service dogs for the disabled. They're better at making people disabled

There are conflicting reports I suppose. I actually think they did get sent to a rehabilitation facility. I believe the name of the person in charge is Jack Kevorkian.

That would be forcing them to take responsibility for their own actions. Does anybody do that anymore?

That would probably be best and what burn down your buildings over the Lynx population PETA reccomended.

I looked up the SI article "What happened to Vick's dogs?"

It sugar coated everything but said the dogs went to three places, the most in UT. Only one had to be out down because it was too violent. Three others were down because of poor health and such. Most did get adopted and some will never be adopted and just live at the rescue places.

I suppose all of them, including the ones who were put down were better off than they were living in the fight club. I'll have to take a look at that article later.

You're right. I can't think of anything else that is banned because owners can't be trusted with them

My pit is 9 and 1/2 years old. I have been so worried as people keep saying that she must be near the end. I can't imagine life with out her. I am so hopeful and encouraged by these comments. I hope she is with me for a very long time. I feed her Blue, plus Natto (fermented soybeans- for her brain, she had a blood clot). She is amazing. When I introduce her people always shay- oh, is she a pit? and I answer yeah, but don't worry, she doesn't know.

Exactly. But then again, guns are just like pit bulls right? You can leave one out in your yard, and it may break loose and kill someone on it's own.

There should be some kind of test before people can have kids or pets..People dying because of someones lack of being able to train and control their children or pets should be punishable by life in prison..The penalty should fit the crime..And yes it is a crime if your pet kills someone..Its not the pet, its the owner..if kids kill,,, their parents should be punished right along with them..

That may be true, but it seems there is a disproportionate number of "responsibility challenged" owners of pit bulls compared with other breeds.
