P.S. It is in a Pitbull type breed's DNA to attack, kill etc.? That is what they were bred to do? Seriously? It is in MY DNA to be a drug-dealer and a prositute, I should have done time in a maximum security prison as well but thankfully for me I was put up for adoption at 5 weeks of age in 1965. I was raised by two beautiful people who desperately wanted children and who showered me with love and affection. DNA hasn't had an effect on me apart from the colour of my hair, eyes and skin - I...

Nobody is a truer testament to being a product of their environment than me! You're just clueless!!!

A good portion of people would much rather have the companionship of a beloved pet to that of another person. Anyone with a HEART and SOUL should love all animals. ANYONE who uses and abuses animals should at the very least have their butts kicked.

Here's the chance to do our part. Help me tell Miranda where to get off!!! To have a dog in your life is a privilege. They are not disposable.

Did some math, who is going to pay to euthanise an estimated 850,000 dogs, or is a heavy blow with a blunt instrument ok here as well as puppy farms. This is a rediculous idea and I can't believe a stupid politition is actually considering this

Miranda Devine you're a piece of shit. People who think like you can trade themselves back, obviously your mum and dad never have you the opportunity to have "Mans best friend" therefore you treat animals like items you can refund. Well screw you. I hope sometime in your life someone trades you in for a better option. Pitiful!

Other thsn her comments being ludicrous- i challenge her to back up her statements with fact! Is she a vet- no! A scientist-no! A geneticist (since she made some pretty strong calls regarding killing beung in DNA)- no! Does she have a degree is public health-no! Well WTF does she know? How dare she think she is an expert to put forward a proposal. If we are going to put proposals forward on 'observations' then i 'observe' she is stupid and a 'danger' to humanity with her small clise minded...

Frim this i declare her 'a danger' and from this all journalists should ve put down to stop them endangering the community!

Please be reasonable and get some statistics which is true and not just made up so it supports one journalist's opinion. Talk to reputable dog behaviourists, talk to people who have done some log term research on this and overall ask yourself the question: do you really want to be known as that person who supported the extinction of specific dog breeds? And who always will be compared to a mass murderer? Please think about the consequences of your doing!! It would be an absolutely horrible,...

And who always will be compared to a mass murderer? Please think about the consequences of your doing!! It would be an absolutely horrible, evil and inhumane act which will follow you for the rest of your life and I can guarantee that this guilt will eat you alive... Let them live and instead go after the people who are responsible for dangerous dogs (from chihuahua to Great Dane)... It is the person behind the dog... Fight the cause and not the symptom!!! That is all!!!

Out of the six dogs in our family.... the most likely to bite is the pug, amongst them we have 3 Staffy's, a mix, and a bull terrier. You simply cannot say a breed is more dangerous than another. Given the circumstance any dog is capable of violence/self defence!! BS laws is BS. This Buy Back scheme is absurd. There is a young man I know of who trains and rehabilitates abused/aggressive dogs, he has the backing, finance and premises his biggest hurdle is local government. WHY?? Perhaps...

Perhaps all councils should have rehab centres to train dogs and owners rather than kill them.
