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.

Miranda needs to clean up her own house before she starts with this stupid scheme. She wrote an article about how her dog killed a possum. So it is ok for her dogs to attack other animals - because it is not a pit bull. Yet a pit bull type dog with no history of attacking anything should just be traded in - Miranda, you are a sick person.

Exactly! If she wants a buy-back scheme then she should be the first to hand her's over

This woman is an absolute idiot!!! When are people going to realise that there is no such thing as a dangerous dog... they are all what we as dog owners create... STOP blaming the breed and start making irresponsible dog owners accountable for their dogs behaviour.

A dog is a companion for life, not an item to dispose of at a whim. This encourages people to give and take as they freely want...would they do this to their children. Respect life, respect your pet and keep them for the duration of their lives regardless...

Usual unthinking old crap from Devine, such a pity anyone takes her moronic comments seriously.

I don't understand people who buy a pet and then do not want to deal with all the responsibility it implies. They are not truly animal lovers. Oh! I hate that people so much.

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.

I think there SHOULD be a buyback scheme. When a human abuses an animal and the animal dies, the human's family should be given a sum of money and the human should be immediately "humanely put to sleep". Why should dogs be killed summarily and yet humans get away scot free with the EXACT SAME CRIMES, especially when the DOG is the one who DOESN'T KNOW ANY BETTER?

This is already way out of hand should never have gone to print in the first place!! Guess they will find out how well their gun buyback scheme worked. If they think dog owners will freely hand in their four legged children they got rocks in their heads. I know one thing they would need a big army to take my fur children.
