First off, I am not assuming anything about your life but what you are spewing about pits is pure ignorance and is based on what the media plays out. All I am asking is that people become educated about what they are speaking about. Dont believe I am comparing apples and oranges when I said what I said about poodles and cockerspaniels. I had a friend that had her ear and half her face torn off from a cocker spaniel attack. I also know of someone that was attacked by their chocolate lab... if it wasnt for her neighbor hearing her scream, the dog would have killed her. Her face was also mangled and needed to have multiple surgeries. They are all canines that react to their surrounds according to how they are trained, no difference. Point is, any dog can be dangerous. It's not breed specific. Working in an animal shelter as you say you have, I would think that you would be more open minded. It's not the breed's fault. It is the fault of the irresponsible owners and the ones that just don't know how to handle these dogs.  (Apr 11, 2008 | post #105)

Calm down. I don't think anyone is saying that it was ok what the dogs did. The owners should be held responsible for sure. It was their fault the dogs got out and did what they did. The problem is the prejudice against the breed as a whole.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #80)

I think you may be inbred due to the dumb **** responses you are leaving. No jaws lock. Taken from austinlostpets.com : Dispelling some myths about Pit Bulls: -Is it true that Pit Bulls can lock their jaw? The infamous locking jaw is a myth. The American Pit Bull Terrier and related breeds are physiologically no different from any other breed of dog. All dogs are from the same species and none have locking jaws. Dr. I Lehr Brisbin of the University of Georgia states, "To the best of our knowledge, there are no published scientific studies that would allow any meaningful comparison to be made of the biting power of various breeds of dogs. There are, moreover, compelling technical reasons why such data describing biting power in terms of 'pounds per square inch' can never be collected in a meaningful way. All figures describing biting power in such terms can be traced to either unfounded rumor or, in some cases, to newspaper articles with no foundation in factual data." Furthermore, Dr. Brisbin states, "The few studies which have been conducted of the structure of the skulls, mandibles and teeth of pit bulls show that, in proportion to their size, their jaw structure and thus its inferred functional morphology, is no different than that of any breed of dog. There is absolutely no evidence for the existence of any kind of 'locking mechanism' unique to the structure of the jaw and/or teeth of the American Pit Bull Terrier." -Are Pit Bulls naturally aggressive towards humans? While many Pit Bulls do tend to be aggressive towards other DOGS (as are most terriers), the normal, well raised Pit Bull has NO human-aggressive tendencies! In fact, human-aggression was actually bred out of the breed. The majority of Pit Bulls are affectionate, intelligent, trainable dogs. In fact, the highest obedience trial record of all time is held by an American Pit Bull Terrier named Maddy! -Can Pit Bulls "turn" on people? In fact, no breed of dog does. Dog aggression is nearly always preceded by some kind of warning, and there is always a reason behind the attack. However, many inexperienced owners do not recognize the dog's behavior as aggression, or refuse to acknowledge it as a warning sign. The only exception I can think of is Springer Rage, a rare and controversial neurological condition that manifests itself as a spontaneous attack, followed by confusion, and then a return to normal behavior. Pit Bulls are NOT prone to this condition. There are individual dogs of any breed that may be more aggressive to others.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #77)

LOL Tom Viciousness is NOT bred into them. It is a LEARNED habit. There is not a gene labeled viciousness. Do some real research not the media constrewed research. They don't deserve bad raps. They make great companions and therapy dogs. As for the poodles and cockerspaniels, have you ever been face to face with one that was so hyper it wouldnt sit still? Just because they are smaller doesn't mean they can't do damage. I've seen it first hand. I am not saying at all that pits can't be violent, they can, but ANY breed can. It depends on the owner and how they are raised. Obviously you dont have any dogs or don't know much about them and what influences their behavior. If you are a dog owner, I suggest you go learn some more.  (Apr 10, 2008 | post #73)
