It's not the breed you ignorant people! It's the damn owners who train their dogs to behave viciously!!

It's also the breed you stupid people! They are bred unnaturally to fight tenaciously and hold on with their powerful jaws they are BRED for which is why the majority of deaths by dog attacks are by pit types and those on small children and UNPROVOKED. Combine that with stupid owners who don't use caution and leave them alone and you get dead kids.

The only thing you have a grip on is whatever you've been stroking while you're having more fantasies like the mindless BS you just posted. If you research pits everything I just stated is FACT. Deal with it, shit for brains.

Everything Jimmie stated is FACT as well Colleen and therefore hardly mindless BS as you refer to it. You yourself stated above in the Tuesday at 12:44 post that "They are bred unnaturally to fight tenaciously". The point is, it is INDEED unnatural for them to fight. They are trained to do so. You could train ANY BREED to be vicious and then use them for horrific reasons. The Bully breeds happen to have a very strong bite per square inch and so have been taregted for this type of...

They are not by nature a vicious breed. They used to be referred to as America's Dog. There's no denying that. Maybe if you refrained from spewing expletives at people before you did a little more research on your own you would learn something.

LOL Colleen do you really think that you are correct. APBTs were first called nanny dogs. Look that up on the internet, because everything on the internet is true. Did you know that Golden Retrievers have a stronger bite force than APBTs? Did you know that there have been many upon many killings of children from Dalmations? Did you know that a pair of huskies mauled and killed a little girl? For you to call someone shit for brains you are the ignorant one, how old are you... 10? Grow...

For you to say you get dead kids by leaving them alone with APBTs you are honestly one of the most stupid people I have ever had the pleasure of correcting.

The problem isn't just with owners training these dogs to fight but it's in the breeding. These dogs are being carelessly bred not only to increase the aggression but for the strength and power. I understand why you feel the way you do about the breed I felt the same way until I educated myself on all of the issues.To express yourself in this fashion on this type of page helps no one. We need to stop the hate and anger not build on it. Pit bulls can be just as wonderful as lets say a lab but...

We need to stop the hate and anger not build on it. Pit bulls can be just as wonderful as lets say a lab but if the breeding is bad the dog can be bad,l if they are both beaten they may both bite. We need to stand up and say close the puppy mills putting out dangerous, sick dogs. Stand up and say no more dog fighting, but to argue like this doesn't help stop the greed that is causing the entire "bad dog" issue.

Jimmie Birley You're right. Even one of Michael Vick's fighting dogs ended up being a therapy dog for kids. They are NOT inherently aggressive.

The problem I see here, without actually going to the page (which I'm sure 99% of you have not done), is the picture. The gun is pointing at a sweet looklng, average Joe kind of dog, not a pit bull or other vicious dog. If the gun was pointing at a pit bull tearing apart a human child, all of you would be advocating the gun. The owner of the page should be asked to change the picture. If you don't like the subject matter you don't have to look at it. If you don't want your child to see...

The facebook community is a worldwide community; there is a LOT to object to. If facebook shut down every page that some American found objectionable there would be no more facebook.

When cruelty and murder is involved you don't just "not look at it."

Also there is no such thing as a vicious breed of dog and the term "pit bull" is slang for over thirty different breeds.

It should be obvious that I meant not looking at the facebook page. Don't look at it. I'm not in any way saying ignore real violence and cruelty. I see you work at PetSmart. This is definitely a place where dogs, especially pit bulls and other violent breeds, should not be allowed. It is not a "dog" store it is a "pet" store. People bring those dogs in the store and terrorize other customers. It is people who do the shopping not the dogs. Whoever came up with that ridiculous idea should be put in a room with an angry pit bull.

"Pit bulls" are not a vicious breed, neither are Rottweilers nor Dobermans, etc... It is THE HUMAN that is the problem. No dog attacks anyone for no reason. People who have dogs need to be responsible, especially around children, etc...

Really, there are no viscous breeds. Just terrible people who have no business being anywhere near an animal and really have no right caring for a dog.

And no... A gun being pointed at ANY BREED is f$&king terrible. Period.

I did go see that page before signing, I like to make my own opinion about who I support. They posted a picture of a dog being dragged behind a pick up truck. If everybody had that ''just don't look at it'' attitude and did nothing, positive changes would not happen. Not looking isn't an action. If you were with a group of people who are spreading hate and promoting abuse and violence, which is what this page is doing, would you just walk away, join them, or would you speak up?

Enid....What other "violent" breeds are you referring to ? As you can see everyone on this page agrees its the owners that are the problem not the dog. A breed is not violent, they are taught to be violent by their owners. PetSmart allows dogs/pets inside their store to socialize with other dogs, which is good for pets and helps them to be less afraid especially if they are learning to trust again.
I hope you do not own any pet !!

You don't breed evil dogs. Its all about how there raised. I've had all kinds of animals from snakes, lizards, spiders, cats, and dogs. None are mean until you raise them to be. You beat them yeah there going turn on you. If I hit you will you hit back.

Aaron, great comment. The agenda of the pit breeders and owners who ignore all factual reality for their arrogant, selfish whim is why we have the overwhelming majority of deaths by pit type breeds and a lot are against children. Fact. Pits are bred to fight and they will hold on with greater tenacity. Combined with more powerful jaws like a Rott. and stupid owners who do not use caution like you would with any lethal animal, you get deaths. Simple fact. The dogs are not to blame. They must not be abused or depicted being abused on a page.
