Maybe an owner register would be more applicable, so irresponsible owners are prevented from animal ownership.

If there is a registry for 'bulls' there should be a registry for all large breed dogs, have you ever seen a Rottweiller in action, two bites from those 'bad boys' and they can snap a neck!!! Lots of fighting breeds out there, just that 'buls' are cheap and disposible.

Here in the US there is an owner registry of sorts, if you follow the law; it's the law to get all dogs rabies shots and when they do, they're registered here with the county Coming soon, a animal abuser registry, just like sex offenders which will make it easier for rescues and private people as well, to check on someone before they adopt out a Pit or any dog. Of course the catch is, they have to be caught and convicted before they'll be on this list.

Unfortunately, Pitbulls attracts the wrong type of owners.... The young ones that likes them just because they look tuff and the drug dealers who wants violent dogs... No wonder there are so many negative feedbacks... You would never see a drug dealer or young man with a poodle...If the dog is trained and socialized, there wont be no problems...

And of course if there is a breed ban, such owners will simply move on to the next intimidating breed.

Agreed But how do you know what owner is going to treat his/her dog with the love and care it needs ? Hard to weed out bad owners Maybe a register with Police and a vet like a gun or car but i can already see the city cash grabs with extra papers to buy and you would have the bad guys keeping the dogs tied up inside the homes

Have it mandatory for pit bull owners to have discipline training. I already do it...and its healthy for everyone.

It's not the dog's fault. Personally, I think these dogs have the right to send their owners to school for training!

I bought an albino pit-bull for my son Gregory and he began nipping at the kids hands and chasing feet at a very young PUPPY age. The instinct to rough play is inate. The grandmother Amy, gave the pit-bull pup away to a neighbor and hes insane today from being tied up and not loved enough, is eyes yellowed and he doesn't remember me from a hole in the ground. I though it was a wonderful gesture to offer a rare breed to my son, who has no reccollection of this puppy as he was also too young,...

maybe you have no dog handling and dog behavior experience. You don't just buy a dog because its rare, that sounds absurd. You learn for as long as it takes you until you feel confident you can properly train and take care of the dog.

You dont get a dog to have a dog . You get a dog to make it family . You raise and discipline for it to be the best the dog can be . I get you feel bad but that dog paid a much more horrific price . I think the least you could do is go give the guy a few bucks and take the dog back and make yr wrongsmright. She would love the chance to feel love before her life ends . You owe it to her .

Already signed/tweeted. Pitbulls aren't my chose of dog, I prefer Maltese & other lapdogs. But I firmly believe that it's the way a dog is treated that makes it savage or friendly. This is another act of human failure for profit; it's not the dog's fault. I'm so pissed off that it's usually the animal who is blamed (and euthanized, if it attacks humans). It's way passed time that the idiot humans who train these breeds to be savage are held accountable!

it is the owners not the dog that gives these dogs a bad rap they are adorable dogs.

I don't have a problem with banning these types of breeds at all. Breeding is a horrible thing anyway, and too often these dogs are used for the wrong purposes.

If you ever have had the joy of having a pittie shower you with kisses, lay beside you and lick your face when your sad, you would never be able to say that...people breed all kinds of dogs for their own greed and profit...should we ban those too? its not the dog to blame..its the people who make them do bad things that should be banned..Not the breed

Any dog is lovely. There is no reason to choose one bread over another, and the sad fact is that these dogs can be dangerous. Breeding in general is a bad thing though, and we all know it.

I totally agree with you that breeding is bad, right now it is anyway. There are way too many unwanted pets and way too many bad and irresponsible breeders. Not until they all have a home... A dog IS an animal after all, ANY breed can be dangerous if taught to be. Or if treated in a way that makes them feel they must defend themselves The worst attack of a dog on a person I have personally seen was a German Shepherd; I have never seen first hand a Pit bite or attack anyone although I've seen...

And I'm in rescue, so I especially see a lot of Pits, since BSL, more than ever before; actually most Pits we have rescued have been horribly abused and neglected and they're still, great big love bugs.

And that's the dog's fault? The dog should lose his family and die, or just as bad never have a family and just die? Far more times these dogs are loved family members than used for the wrong purposes. BSL tears families apart and murders innocent dogs, and that's all it does.

Racism is okay? I don't believe in breeding...but what about rescues? Totally unfair... why is it not okay to be racist against humans...but okay against other living things!
