I hate how people say Pittbulls are aggressive, it's the owner not the dog.

I had a very nice older neighbor years ago who I really like but who was also anti 2A...well one afternoon another neighbors pits got out and killed his poodle right in front of him. He nearly knocked my door of it's hinges begging me to get my gun!

Funny how a little threat wakes people up...

I did grab my .45 and went to investigate...the poodle was most certainly dead and the pits were long gone so we called PD and let them handle it.

I think the pits were destroyed...which is too bad, no such thing as a bad dog, only bad owners.

i dont agree with the only bad owners thing when it comes to dogs bred for war. being vicious is genetically programed into them. they typically arent vicious to their owners only to outsiders and thats where the trouble stems. pitbulls have been known to leap from second story balconies to attack people walking down the street. http://www.nbc15.com/news/state/headlines/Pit_Bull_Leaps_Off_Balcony_Attacks_Dog_Walker_1593 77215.html

whatever is in their genes that make them territorial is hardwired and no amount of training and being a good owner can over ride that.

I have had my Pit since he was three months old and he is a great dog. Its defenitly the owner not the breed. At my house my dog buddy sounds mean if you knock on the door and when I let you in and tell him to calm down hes fine. But I would not hesitate taking a dogs life to save another humans life. Here is a picture of my dog and cat sleeping on the couch. My dogs name is Buddy and the cat is Fuzz Lightyear.

It's great there are so many loyal owners, but there's been enough good owners where the dog has turned on a family member and even their own children, it's too risky. Problem is, if the dog does snap, they are an incredibly strong animal.

Right. So if your dog could get loose would you be concerned for others safety?

Unfortunately it is the dog that bits, mauls and sometimes kills...not the owner.

Everyone is concentrating on Pits but there are other breeds out there that can be just as dangerous if not more dangerous. I worked with one guy whose wife was killed by their pet Doberman. They had raised the dog from a pup but one day she was hanging clothes on the line and the dog attacked her. I know another Doberman that is so gentle it is unreal and it was supposed to be a guard dog. This one would probably follow you around and show you where all the good stuff is. I know of a German Shepherd that would let anyone in but dont try to get out. They had to post the meter readings in the window because it would not let the meter readers out.
I like dogs but I dislike uncaring and inconsiderate dog owners. Train it and control it or dont have one.
