Believe it or not, I am completely unbiased as I really am not an animal lover and never had a pet in my life. I used to have a roommate years ago with 2 pit bulls (one male, one female) they were the smartest, sweetest, gentle and kind dogs I have ever seen. Their expressions made it seem like they were actually communicating and I absolutely fell in love. Since then I have met other pit bull owners with super well behaved dogs and have always heard and read the same stuff across the board and that is they can be very smart, loyal, gentle and good with kids but depends on their owner, and how they were brought up and trained. If you raise a dog in a drug trap house around rowdy abusive people then that's what kind of pit bull you're gonna end up with! Do some simple google searches and you will find out that pit bulls in general are great dogs. They can be very strong and aggressive if brought up and trained that way just like you can train a person up be a mixed martial arts killing machine!

It also depends on breeding, which is so screwed up as to be hopeless for pits, because they've been inbred for so long by so many to achieve all the features that the nastis desire. A happy pit can snap and rip your face off, and their physical structure makes them just too big a threat to be mamby pamby over. Half the pits that ever got put down for viscious behavior were " so sweet I used to feed him treats out of my mouth" before the neighbor kid gets his nose eaten. Blacks have tem for the same reason thy have guns, "respec"

How many of those dog owners have homeowner's or renters insurance to cover bodily damages when an animal, with a natural propensity to attack and maul for no reason, does it's thing? A serious attack runs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. If someone lives in your apartment with a PIT, contact management and REMIND them that if the renter doesn't have insurance coverage on his dog, the liability falls back on the landlord for knowingly allowing the vicious breed dog to be there. That will normally get the ball rolling! Having that little sweet pit doggie anywhere near you is like having a ticking time bomb with no hands on the clock as it's not a matter of if, BUT WHEN!!

Another uneducated human being who thinks they know a whole breed just because of media coverage of just a few terribly raised and abused dogs that were aggressive

Its not about media coverage, its about an animal that's capable of doing more damage than any other dog and is more inbred and trained for violence than any other. Available statistics are pretty clear. I've personally known some really sweet pits, it doesn't change facts. They don't exist in nature, eliminating the breed wouldn't be some attrocity if they were just allowed to die out or be bred out.

You're sidestepping the discussion. All pits are subject to attacking for no reason. The old BS argument that all dogs bite is true but all dogs don't maul and continue the attack to the death of the victim or the death of the dog. In attack mode, pits don't respond to owner's verbal commands and have to be dealt with physically. You seem to be a pit owner and I repeat the question: Do you have a plan to stop an out of control attack? Do you have insurance coverage to cover doctor, hospital, both now and future repair surgeries? Are you ready to let your little doggie ruin you financially until a possible court ordered judgment is paid off? Don't think it can't happen. A person standing in front of a judge and jury with lifelong scars from your animal speaks is proof enough . Think about it and discuss it with your insurance agent and your lawyer. After the fact is NOT the time.

Yeah, a kid with a mangled face doesn't usually lose a jury decision against the dog that mangled it.

Never owned a dog or any animal myself, just have know many pit bulls that are not capable of anything close to a maulling and yet have seen miniature dogs appear to be possessed by the devil

Okay, listen ding dong. It is the pit bull breed now, it was the Rottweiler before that, the German shepherd before that, and the Doberman before that. I have been around all those breeds all my life, and you know what kind of dog I was actually attacked by? A miniature poodle. It's the owner not the breed. Any animal can attack when threatened or afraid. Petey from little rascals was a pit bull and no one was afraid of him.

Did the miniature poodle rip and tear your body and hang on for the kill? Did it try to chew your face off? Yes, all dogs will bite but all dogs don't have an inbred propensity to maul and kill for unknown reasons. Living with a pit in your house or a neighbor having one is more like having pet cobras and rattle snakes roaming loose in your place. It's not a matter of if but when. Pit owners need minimum insurance coverage in the seven figure range to cover damage, follow up, and whatever the judge rules for pain and suffering caused by something that the owner knew well of the dangers of having a vicious breed animal .

If I had a pit outside anywhere near me it would enjoy the long sleep. Painless and efficient, never cruel, but not on a tiny cable waiting for a kid to eat. Dude nailed it. Many dogs bite, quite a few have been subject to intentonal inbreeding, but none were bred explicitely for fighting, not even rotts, and none have the capacity to do damage of pitts. Pitts are responsible for more bites requiring serious medical procedures(stitches to surgery, and autopsy) than all other dogs combined. Cry about "misidentification" all you want, the dogs people claim are misidentified ARE usually a member of a breed commonly referred to as and connected to the bloodline of pitts, and thberefre subject to the same breed flaws, ie overagressiveness, even to the ones they know and often love. Here's some truth for you; at 48, every single person I've ever known who had a pitt engaged in some level of illegal activity. EVERY ONE. Maybe as simple and innocuous as smoking pot, but illegal activity nonetheless. EVERY SINGLE ONE. And the more pitts, the bigger the crime. If a person has 3 they're either dealing drugs, robbing houses, pimping, or using them in dog fights.
