It's a law for a reason .. Pit bulls are dangerous and unpredictable.. I was bitten by one .. She was a big baby till one day me and stepson had an altercation . I pet this dog every day fed this dog every day it was my dog but again it still bit me . Stop this before some child gets hurt!!!!!

I got bit my a standard size poodle when I was young and you don't see them banned.....any dog can be dangerous and bite, not just pit bulls. It's a unfair law to just target a certain breed.

Pits and any bully breed are extremely protective of children. Did you ever stop to think that that dog was feeling your aggression towards that child and feeling the childs fear of getting in trouble?

As a child, my parents had to put "Mickey," our standard, coarse hair Dachshund in another room when they "disciplined" me because she would lunge at them, even when they just raised their voices at me. Mickey had 5 years with my parents before I came on the scene, yet she was my champion. Keith Ryskamp, MOST dogs will side with children. Your dog is not dangerous and unpredictable - YOU are!

Keith, I'd love to know more about the "altercation" with your stepson. Sounds like it caused undue stress to the Pittie. Hhmmm......I feel like there's more to the story that you're not telling.

Keith, I believe it's in the natural nature of a pit bull to protect a child and believe that they will protect those who are being beat/hurt despite it being their owner or not.

I remember walking into a house before where the bred fighting dogs and the torture these puppies had to endure.. U better believe I put a stop to their asses... It was horrible. they were cutting the puppies ears off on the kitchen counter and they were screaming... The conditions were unbareable... I brought over antibiotics to help the poor things out and then called the cops on their asses and got those puppies outta there.

I love Pitt bulls they get such a bad rap they are so loving and caring even around kids.Its what these people do to them and how they raise them to fight and be aggressive.They treat them very cruel when they so call train them they do not take it easy on these dogs not in the slightest way.There very abusive to them and just make the dog so afraid to do nothing else but fight and when they do fight they get ripped up and not taken care of properly.And god forbid they lose or get hurt and...

That's a terrible story, Janet but that's not the ONLY story. For every bad story there are THOUSANDS of great ones. Like in life...there are horrible stories every day of humans doing horrible things but there are AMAZING stories that happen every day too. It's up to YOU to see it.

I had never had a more special bond with a dog, who was my friend, my family.

As a pitbull owner, I have a vested interest in seeing that douche-bags quit giving pits a bad name with the types of behavior they learn from their owners. My pitty is about the very sweetest dog you could ever meet, although he's a bit of an annoyance because of how clingy he is. I sure do love him, but I think he's got me beat. He won't even let me go to the bathroom alone.

Keith... if you were having an altercation with your son... the dog was probably responding to that, as most dog breeds will. All dogs can bite. Pitbulls are not more disposed to bite than other breeds, you should not villify a whole breed of dogs because of a single incident. Using your logic, I can argue the exact opposite... because my pit has never gotten violent or hostile, than all pits must be gentle dogs. Its incorrect logic. A dogs behaviour is a product of its upbringing and...

A dogs behaviour is a product of its upbringing and environment. No dog is born inherently violent or hostile, they are made that way. Look at the techniques dog fighters use to make a dog mean and willing to attack. They have to do extreme and very cruel things to there dogs to make them into violent animals. If pits were born mean and vicious.... it wouldn't take months of cruel training and abuse to make them hostile and willing to fight.
