The problem with both sides of the argument is that within these "experts", they usually come into the tests and arguments being biased.

Any dog in the this breed can have fighting tendencies or become aggressive but majority of the time it is their source, meaning their owners. Just like majority aggressive natured dogs, i.e. german shepards, rots, chows, etc., they need attention. Whether it be daily walks or playing with them, especially training them. Now I also agree with a previous post that just because someone has owned them or grown up with them doesn't really mean they can speak on behalf of that breed but they have learned to train their pits well.

Me personally, I think they are just the best breed.

Pit bulls or English/American stafshires were origianl used for hunting and wrangling because of all the traits people are scared of them for. Thier willing ness to complete a task given no matter the adversity is what makes them such a loyal pet. This also makes them a dangerous one in the hands of most normal dog owners who dont take the resposability for having such a pet.


I dont think pits are usless i just think not everyone has a use for them.

They are not bad dogs just dumb owners

i agree in retrospect with everything ya'll are saying about pits.. what it boils down to naturally with any dog is their up bringing. what kind of evniroment are they raised in. how are they treated? this conversation will always be and opinionated topic.

again what amber said i agree with 100% is that you can't judge a whole breed for 1 bad apple. if that was the case i would hate a lot of things and people..

o absolutely! hands down. it was just that most likely once in a life time situations... but dogs are a big problem here in houston in general. they roam free all over the place. i'm just glad for the most part it happened in the back yard because there are a lot of older people in the neighborhood who walk their dogs and they would of been just helpless..

ditto.

Don't feel guilty for what you did. I'm an avid APBT advocate, but I definitely don't believe in raising a mean, viscious dog, and have no respect for the people that do.

Any dog that is mean/vicious/out of control needs to be put down, but that's my personal opinion. Most of it, you can't just "train" them out of.

This is all about people keeping their animals on a leash. pure and simple. people will argue that their dog is fine, doesn't need one, won't hurt anyone, should be free. I call these people . and when I say leash I mean leash, not a rope tied to the tree, another terribly stupid thing to do. anyone defending that is probably having their fence rebuilt, cuz that's the only good reason to do it. in the dog's mind he is trapped like food for another animal and can't get away, causing unnaturally agressive behavior.

more bad handlers than bad dogs. glad your girl is ok dude!
