Round 1 is acceptance
Rounds 2&3 are arguments and rebuttals
Round 4 is rebuttals and conclusion

Arguments can be based on stories and facts.
I am not talking about just their nature

Pitbulls are only mean if you raise them that way.

These sites above are full of inspiriting stories of pit bulls saving their owners and even other pets in the household from various dangers. Pit Bulls have the awful stereotype of being horrible dogs and always are attacking people and are used in dog fights.

There are plenty of other types of dogs that do just that. Just because the dog is a pit bull does not mean that it is going to act that way. Pit Bulls can be very nice and warm dogs to have in your house and you will not have to worry about them hurting anyone.

Nobody ever talks about other dogs when they attack someone or are used in dog fights, they only talk about Pit Bulls because that is their persona.

No dogs are born mean/aggressive it is how the owner raises them. If the animal is abused/neglected growing up then it will learn to be mean to defend itself.

ragnar..... What does that mean homer.

If anyone owns a pitbull and did not do research on the danger are criminally negligent if that dog hurts someone.80% of pitbull attacks are on the owners.As it should be.

I have a Lab-Pit bull mix and he's very aggressive towards other dogs and people, if he feels the person he's guarding is nervous at all. Other than that he's tame.

My argument: Pit bulls are very aggressive

In 2013, 32 dog related fatalities. 25 were pitbulls, That was 78 % of fatalities.Pitbulls only make up 6% of the dog population. Do the math.

Look up pitbulls. I have yet heard of a collie or a retriever killing anyone. Most of dog attacks in the news are pitbulls.Anyone owning one should be forced to take out extra insurance to cover the damage one could do.

85 % of all dog attacks are pitbulls. Anyone who owns one should assume full responsibility and the repercussions if their pet injures someone.
