Pit Bull Dogs are ANIMALS like all other animals. Some animals cannot be less good than others. When Steven Spielberg made the movie "Jaws" - we all know the understanding of sharks - that came out of this movie - was wrong and based on human fear. Luckily the research had worked hard to explain that none of the animals are "monsters". So neither are sharks or Pit Bulls.
So it is wise to understand these dogs and what their requirements are - rather than create false monsters out of them....

I agree pit bulls, and indeed all dogs are beautiful animals. It is just that the average type of human being that are more likely to be attracted to pit bulls are the less than desirable type. Just as you would say there are no bad dogs but just bad/ignorant owners.

Dog behaviour is an indication of what state is the human behaviour in. If the dog aggression is on the rise - than that is a wake up call for us humans and time to look into our OWN behaviour!

you have to find a way. I don't go anywhere if they pull. they have to learn to be on the loose lead. Start teaching him to just be on a lead and going nowhere...standing next to you on a loose lead. then the next day make only one step...then day 2 -make two steps. This is if you are patient. If you are not a patient person - you will do what a person does when he looses his patience and believe me - dogs respect that as well. they are pretty easy going comparing to us humans...one way or...

pit bulls aren't necessarily dangerous. fuckwits who don't have the means or energy to look after ANY kind of terrier, are dangerous. I cant begin to count the stupid suburban teenage bitches who think they would be a good owner of a husky or other high energy dog because its 'pretty'. we need to stop targeting pitbulls and start targeting ignorance and dumb motherfuckers. imagine if instead of CYPS and welfare, we just started euthinasing kids from poor areas because they're 'more likely to...

This earth belongs to every animal, despite the damage done from biblical propaganda stating that we are a divine being. Its astounding that something that so obviously goes against common sense and reasoning can still take place in this day and age.

We need to stop "judging a book by it's cover." Pit Bulls are as individual as any other breed or species. BSL is no different than, and just as wrong as, racial profiling. The APBT is the sweetest breed of dog I know.

iv owned my previous red nose for 8 years... had my first kid 5 years ago and my dog never once showed any interest in harming my girl...my daughter could pull my dogs ears poke her eyes and pull on her tail and my pitbull just sat there a took it protective and loyal by nature... a pitbull is not born bad or evil.. its the owners that are the problem don't blame the dogs for human era...

Address the facts; hold the dog owner accountable; promote (fund) animal welfare & education programs such as obedience classes, spay and neuter programs, micro chipping, licensing enforcement.....Face the reality: BSL does not reduce the number of human injuries from dog bites. I would adopt another 10 pit bull "type" dogs into my family of 5 "pitties" if I could give 15 dogs adequate care and attention.

Bad owner create bad dogs.Punish the deed, not the breed.
If you knew a pibull, spent time with a pit bull/type.Only then would you know how precious these dogs are.

BSL = Ban Stupid Laws (There are so many mixed breed dogs out there that would also be banned because they may resemble one in particular. Many people misidentify breeds already and would in turn ban others as well. Why not educate people on responsible dog ownership instead? Don't let the government decide what pets you may own, it won't end with one breed).

I recently read an article where our type was referred to as Pit Bull "cultists". I thought that was appropriate since we are so compelled to share our stories and pride about our pibbles, and we are in some cases treated like "enemies of the states". And I can take all that because as a responsible pit bull owner, I think it is my duty for me and my dogs to be good ambassadors for the breed. When I read post after post the message is the same. It's not the breed, it's the way the dog is...

It's not the breed, it's the way the dog is reaised, and we all know that is true; I think it's also important to acknowledge the dogs we choose to love and remember that like any dog, they have the potential to be harmful. Like ALL other breeds. So please lets not paint the entire breed with rose-colored brushes, and remember that it takes an extra ordinary group of individuals to train and love these dogs, and for heavens sake, if you expect to get a mild, passive, dog that will never challenge your abilities, then this is not the breed for you.

A dog is a dog, no more and no less. If you find a "bad" dog, put the owner down and rehabilitate the dog.

A pitbull is a workhorse like no other and get really tired after 12 hours. So for the people who think you've walked a big circle, it can not be big enough. A pitbull is a very cheerful and obedient but also very intelligent. He is alert and quickly learns the properties as reliable and human kindness. He is very child friendly and has a high pain threshold so kids can hurt him very quickly. You can only really work out for 2 years, so let it run until it drop. A pitbull is not intended for...

A pitbull is a workhorse like no other and get really tired after 12 hours. So for the people who think you've walked a big circle, it can not be big enough. A pitbull is a very cheerful and obedient but also very intelligent. He is alert and quickly learns the properties as reliable and human kindness. He is very child friendly and has a high pain threshold so kids can hurt him very quickly. You can only really work out for 2 years, so let it run until it drop. A pitbull is not intended for the truants. If you do so, chances are that he will demolish molt. The dog that is really his energy needs. They are nervous creatures they can not really good at sitting still. They have a lot of exercise to lose all his nerves and energies to.
ou do not have a dog that is better for his owner. Unfortunately he is exploited by the dangerous monster that exists in humans. The man could be an angel but a devil as well. It is a horrible act to destroy these animals. If they want to eradicate dangerous animals, they really dangerous than among men look.
An indignant astrid due Lennox where so many people have fought for.
