I knew a guy ripped up (50 stitches worth- all below the knees) by a chihuahua. I have been bitten by just about every critter but a pit! people need to get some education!

The only dog I personally knew who had to be put down due to vicious biting weighed 7 pounds.

I am 60 years old and have a Pit Bull, Pit Bull/Akita/Chow and 6 other big dogs who share my house and life with me. I will fight for the Pit Bull until I take my breath and all Boxy headed dogs who will be included in this profiling including Boxers and probably Boston Terriers (another American breed).

We are facing the same thing here in Australia, the council have the right to come into our homes & take our dogs & destroy them, even though, they haven't done anything to anyone. Breed Ban Laws are irresponsible & they think this is going to solve the problem, they need to get the the scumbags out there that are giving this breed a bad reputation. I find it very sad that any one breed of dog can be blamed for the way it's owner brings it up. It should have been sorted years ago when a dog...

I find it very sad that any one breed of dog can be blamed for the way it's owner brings it up. It should have been sorted years ago when a dog attacks, the owner should have been held responsible, but no, we'll just destroy the dog, that's a lot easier & cheaper, no court costs, no solicitors fees, nothing, just a vet fee for destroying the dog & fines for the owner. If owners were held accountable for their dogs actions in the first place, breed specific laws wouldn't even need to come into play. They still don't, governments should grow a pair & make it that the dog owner will own the responsibility for the dogs actions. Perhaps that will make people think twice about how they treat their animals. It's a very cruel world we live in. Our governments are letting people sleep out in the cold, giving houses to refugees while our own people are homeless & yet they concentrate so much more on dog legislation. All I'm trying to say is there are more important things that our governments could be investigating & trying to fix....MAKE THE OWNERS TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OF THEIR PETS & LEAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL DOGS ALONE...CONCENTRATE ON MORE IMPORTANT THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD. Sorry for my rant guys.

Don't give up Hope! Keep advocating and working hard. Ohio just removed its vicious label on pits, and Cincinnati Just repealed it's ban on pit bulls. Change is possible, just keep up the good work

BREED BAN LAWS ARE SO WRONG NOT TO MENTION THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS DISCRIMINATING AGAINST RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS! PUNISH THE DEED! NOT THE BREED!

It's so sad that the people making the decisions about the breed have probably never even owned a Pit Bull so what the hell would they know? Would they say I don't like that person because of a reputation? It's all bullshit...

The politians and law makers have been looking at the wrong end of the leash, they need to be laying blame on the HUMAN'S END! That is where the problem's start and end. To say that pit bulls are born dangerous you have to say that humans are born dangerous and that would be ludirous.
Start laying blame where blame is due at the irresponsible, un-trained owners. There are no bad, dangerous dogs. Remember you are not born knowing to hae, HATE IS TAUGHT- HATE IS BSL!

Stop K9 profiling! Profile the people if anything! What is needed is for those responsible for giving pits, or any other dog breed that has gotten a bad and bs rap for being vicious extreme fines, extreme punishment for their cruel deeds, and the inability to ever, EVER have any pets ever, EVER again! Make them known to the public so we can all keep an eye on them... and leave the poor dogs alone. It is not the dogs, it's the sick twists with whom these poor creatures have the misfortune...

It is not the dogs, it's the sick twists with whom these poor creatures have the misfortune of ending up. Let these dogs have only loving homes and let them stay in those homes with good, decent people. Honestly, and I've done a fair amount of humane work in my time, I have seen some horrific things, some of the results of some of the true bastards that have given these dogs the bad reputations they never deserved, and have met some absolutely gorgeous dogs, including pits absolutely... I HAVE NEVER MET A PIT I DIDN'T LIKE... I CANNOT say that about people!

In the 70's it was the GSD that was a dangerous breed. In the 80's it was the Doberman. in the 90's it was the Rottweiler. 2000 -present day it is the Pit Bull. Who knows what breed will be deemed dangerous next. Breed ban bylaws are not the answer. It has always been the owners (humans) who train their dogs or not train their dogs. All dogs..any breed are born innocent with a blank slate..it is what gets written on that slate that makes them who they are. I think people should have to...

I firmly believe that if they are raised by the right people they are no more vicious than a lab! so not at all! We need to update our laws on animal cruelty to somewhere up with child abuse and start holding these worthless people accountable! The link is so strong between animal abuse and child abuse that it could just as easily be a child, and we wouldn't put them down just because the did something they were raised to do! get rid of this ban and start holding the people responsible!
