It's not the breed people, It's the owners!

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.

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.

My boarder's pit bull just bit the neighbor next door. He's never bitten anyone before and now I am so poor and he has always been so sweet and sensitive. Now I know I am in serious trouble and now I may be caused to be evicted and the dog may have to be put down. I am crying so bad that I am praying to God that I just don't know what to do. My neighbor was bitten on her hand and took an ambulance to the hospital. The dog's name is Rascal, please pray that that my landlord doesn't ask...

Keith, you really just showed your ignorance. "Your" dog was protecting "your" stepson against "your " aggresive stance towards him. I bet you didn't think about that did you.
