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!!!

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.

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.

We are meant to be fostering owners taking responsibility for their dogs and doing the training to keep them happy and balanced! Not excusing owners from responsibility and YET AGAIN blaming BREED....They walk among us and unbelievably get on TV!!! Miranda Devine maybe we can organise your trade in...

This is blatant discrimination! Two years ago my Red Cattle bitch (who was on her lead) was attacked by a Pomeranian who burst through it's front flyscreen door. My dog ended up with puncture wounds on her upper and lower jaw where the Pomeranian had locked itself !!! and after being reported to the Council this Pomeranian - yes, a Pomeranian! - is now listed as a dangerous dog. When I was 9 years old I was bitten by a Corgi, the Queen's preferred breed of dog - imagine the uproar if Corgis...

You are a narrowminded, uneducated woman to even imply this buy-back scheme is an option - you can't discriminate! We are ALL a product of our environment! And good luck with this, anybody attempting to come to my house to take my Cattle Dog and Staffordshire Bull Terrier would be treated as a thief so should expect a good kick up the arse!

The media publishes a lot of rubbish, but her article was beyond rubbish. How can anyone claiming to be intelligent put such crap to print.

beyond idiot - only a person who believes that people will turn in their dog like some inanimate object like a happy meal upgrade could possibly believe this is a driving force for people who have companion animals - no amount of money would make me give up mine ... least of all some idiotic buyback scheme - trade one dog in for another - hey miranda how about you upgrade our children too? ones that do better in school too? beyond ridiculous
