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.

I just listened to you spew yet another load of crap on Channel 9 - to volunteer our dangerous breeds of dog and rescue a dog in a pound? Seriously? Can you vouch for the temperament as a result of the rearing of every dog found in a pound (as sorry as I am for their plight)? That's a big call you silly woman! I have owned Cattle Dogs for the past 20 years and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for the past 4 years (both purported dangerous breeds of dogs). Staffies are now my preferred breed and...

Can you vouch for the temperament as a result of the rearing of every dog found in a pound (as sorry as I am for their plight)? That's a big call you silly woman! I have owned Cattle Dogs for the past 20 years and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier for the past 4 years (both purported dangerous breeds of dogs). Staffies are now my preferred breed and I will NEVER own any other breed - they are just so affectionate and social. And my dogs are a direct reflection of me and I am a kind, gentle and loving person (even if I do say so myself). Would I stop and give the "Shih Tzu at the end of the street a pat"? Absolutely no way, not without sussing it out first! Have you no clue? They are snappy, unpredictable dogs that you have just advocated on national television! You are so, so narrow minded it is beyond reckoning ...

I Apologize to any Muslim for using that as a Example but this is what there doing to a breed of dog that is loving and Loyal I have had three bull dog breeds before now and children round them with no Incidents so to me it's not the dog it's the owner so stop Blaming the dogs for the easy way out its the owners

Most ridiculous thing I ever heard! The kind of people who are responsible owners would never sell out their family pet - ever! And the kind of people who would take part in this asinine scheme you don't want owning any breed of dog anyway! An irresponsible, uneducated and lazy owner can turn a Chihuahua, a Kelpie, a Labrador or a cocker Spaniel.....any dog into a loose cannon. This tool of a reporter missed the boat by an ocean. Any dog can become unstable in the wrong hands, just as the...

An irresponsible, uneducated and lazy owner can turn a Chihuahua, a Kelpie, a Labrador or a cocker Spaniel.....any dog into a loose cannon. This tool of a reporter missed the boat by an ocean. Any dog can become unstable in the wrong hands, just as the most damaged abused dogs can become reformed family pets in the right hands, you just need to look a Sick Vicks fighting dogs to see proof of that - trained as killers by an sadistic idiot and reformed with kindness and compassion by responsible educated people, this scheme is just idiocy and will be about as effective as BSL in stopping dog bites.

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.

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

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?

Dogs are NOT disposable items. This kind of thinking is why we have so many dogs in pounds, and so many neglected and dangerous dogs in the first place. This thinking is the problem, NOT the solution. My girls are my family, and I am NOT giving my family members up to be murdered! These people disgust me!
